Likelihood to Recommend
I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked Having clear milestones and timelines for projects Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general Assigning different components of projects to different people Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task Read full review
Because I work with many people for whom Project Management is new, I wanted to use software that was user-friendly, fairly intuitive, and not filled with jargon. I like the fact I can use existing templates that (mostly) work for our needs, and I look forward to more things being added. They say support is 72 hours, but I’ve never waited for more than a few.

Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized Read full review Creating the schedule is probably the most "difficult" function to get used to. Linking each scope to one another and using different dates for each day can get a little confusing as it is relatively easy to break the links if you were to change the dates. If you have a schedule for a job that is 2 months long; if you revise your schedule to include a date change, if the link is broken it will not update the rest of the dates and remaining scopes. So you would have to figure out where the link has been broken within the schedule, or go through and change the remaining dates by hand. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
ProjectManager.com had the full range of features that I needed to manage my projects effectively, but as a regular line manager (rather than a designated project manager) I personally don't think I actually need so many features. I could manage my own projects with a simpler product, so I would probably opt for a free or cheaper alternative in future. That's not a criticism of the product at all, just that it had more than I needed.

At first, the range of features can be a little overwhelming, particularly for users with more limited project management experience. However, there is good support information provided on how to use each different feature, so with a bit of care and attention a user should find it easy to learn how to use the software.

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of
's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried) Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from
, saving tons of time in migration.

ProjectManager.com is less pricey and has all the features of all the other software, some of which are even better. In general, I like the interface and user experience of the product and it is really appealing to use. Easy to learn, fosters collaboration, and improves team communication.

Read full review It's an extra addition to our workflow so can sometimes reduce efficiency. No integration to our CRM. People can forget to use it when the same team is in the office, it's sometimes easier just to talk. Read full review ScreenShots ProjectManager.com Screenshots
