monday.com is the best time and task managing tool I've used while working in a design team. It can be customized extensively and adapted to a company's and team's needs. In my particular case, it has helped enormously to separate the tasks from the design team from the software development team, who have different needs.

Redmine is a perfect solution for businesses that are looking for a FREE and open source solution for project management. It is great for teams that are managing numerous tasks or projects at one time. Redmine is easy to set up and is fairly self-explanatory for anyone who is semi tech-savvy.

Release Tracker - Redmine allows releases to be tracked by milestones, collecting relevant issues in each milestone. Agile Management - With a few free or low-cost add-ons, Redmine becomes a great tool for Agile project management Read full review Cons Exporting of Gantt charts for PowerPoint Presentations Easier integration needed with Microsoft Azure ADO Date Completion versus Due Date versus Completion Status - The completion status was often wrong, even though the project was completed by the due date. Seems to have corrected itself over time. So maybe there was an issue (bug) that was fixed. Read full review The design and user-interface are a little outdated. It looks like a product that was designed ten years ago and doesn't have a polished look and feel like newer apps have. It's not particularly designed to support agile-based project management methodologies such as Scrum. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We rely on monday.com to track clients. There is currently not another software out there that we would prefer to use for client management, so I do not see a reason why we wouldn't renew our subscription with monday.com.

Though I think I'm fairly technically savvy, I did not need training to create boards and systems that were familiar to me. And when I do need some guidance, I have been successful in finding help with simple searching or have had great success with getting help from the Team at monday.com just by asking a question.

Redmine is a great product to have in an organization. It's extremely flexible, costs much less to maintain than other alternatives, and as a tool, it is relatively fast to get experienced with. The primary advantages of working with Redmine are: flexible platform, API, open-source and highly configurable, stability.

There have only been 2 instances in the past year where monday.com was down.

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

Unfortunately, this is one of the most significant areas for improvement with Monday.com. Monday.com boasts 24/7 service, but in my experience, it does little to deliver. On several occasions, I have reached out to Monday with long delays and lagging response times. This seems to be the one area where other platforms have Monday.com beat. While this platform is my favorite, its lackluster customer service has tainted my experience and motivated me to look elsewhere for similar services.

Redmine is free, easy to use and it's everything you could want in a free project management program. The fact that it has wiki integration and that it can track on such a granular level is amazing. Assigning tasks to other users, such as our development team, is fantastic and ensures we are always up-to-date on where we are what - on what projects.

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!

Read full review Scalability
For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.
Read full review Return on Investment Personally, I feel like I've been easily getting at least 10x-20x the number of projects done since using Monday. Going from having to keep track of assignments via marking emails as unread to tracking projects in monday.com has SUPERCHARGED the way I work. It has brought my team together into a cohesive whole. Being able to tag each other in project updates, create new projects and assign them to each other, and see where everyone is at on their tasks has saved so much time emailing/messaging people and helped us each appreciate what everyone else contributes more. We're communicating way better! Being able to search for documents and project updates has made my work more efficient. I no longer have to ask someone to email me a graphic or document - I can simply search for the related task in monday.com and grab what I need!

Customers have responded well from being able to not have to track down emails and instead come to a central place for requests. Read full review
