OmniFocus

1) Great for managing your work and personal activities.2) One of the best implementations of the Getting Things Done method.3) Not really suited for collaborative work management; OmniFocus is managed on a per-user basis so you can't share/assign tasks.

Plutio

Plutio is great for the individual who is constantly on the go, managing a wealth of online information and projects. I can see those who work in education, such as administration, or technology coaches/teacher coaches using a platform like this to stay organized. Freelance or consultants would also benefit as it can manage your digital self.

Pros

OmniFocus

  • Ease of viewing your projects at a high-level.
  • Ease of viewing what tasks need to be done at the present moment and the sorting of those tasks by availability, due date, start date, needed resources, and project.
  • The visual interface is really nice to work with, the UX/UI is intelligent and intuitive.
  • It's the most extensible software I've used. There is a community of people that publish compatible scripts for Omnifocus at no charge.
  • The code is robust and I've almost never had a bug or a glitch that resulted in issues.
  • The software syncs in the cloud between MacOS and iOS seamlessly and faster than other To-Do software. The sync aspect is available free of charge.
  • The development team at Omnifocus is on top of bugs and they have been adding releases regularly to increase functionality and performance.
  • While OmniFocus adheres to the GTD (Getting things done) principles, it can be used in almost any manner and you aren't stuck with just that methodology.

Plutio

  • Task management is excellent. It can be broken down into so many levels and makes it easy to keep track of what needs to be done.
  • The ability to customize your method of using it is key. Setting it up to both look and work in a way that fits your company and employees is very important and Plutio does this very well.

Cons

OmniFocus

  • I would really like to see graphic presentations of how I allocate my time, what categories of tasks don't get accomplished, etc.
  • I would like to see OmniFocus include Gantt chart functionality, such as allowing me to see how long it took me to accomplish a task from start to finish. Allowing me to actually input time spent, and seeing it on a Gantt chart, would be icing on the cake.

Plutio

  • Small issue, but when you open a task in order to close it you have to click the X icon, instead of just clicking in the background to close it.

The GUI is not always so intuitive for non IT people, like some customers. The GUI is still being developed constantly. Leo is very committed to taking this platform forward and making it more and more professional

OmniFocus has excellent user forums. They're active as well as mature, since the product has been around for years. I've never needed to actually contact customer support because OmniFocus is popular enough that I've always been able to find an answer in the forums, or in an article, or in a YouTube video.

Interacted directly with the CEO after we signed up, he responded to our questions and built a lot of confidence in the product. Afterwards, we recommended some improvements to the calendar and task list, and they implemented them.

Alternatives Considered

OmniFocus

Part of O365 is the Tasks application, which is "free" with O365 and does a lot of essential task management. Yes, it's very basic. Yes, it's basically "To-do," but it works quite well. Omnigraffle does everything better, and more thoroughly, but at a higher initial cost. If your workplace provides O365 for "free," however, I would suggest starting with Tasks and moving to OmniFocus if/when you need more functionality.

Plutio

Plutio is much more robust than Trello. If you are looking for a full suite of tools to help you stay organized Plutio is the best option. Trello is simple and a great Kanban board tool, however, you can organize Plutio to fit your specific project and preferred workflow. Then you add the other tools, like invoicing, proposals, time tracking, and communication, and you really have a full suite to complement your workflow.

Return on Investment

OmniFocus

  • OmniFocus keeps our tasks moving forward. Using a free script you can search all your current projects for projects that have no next step assigned to it to ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
  • When we serve our clients, the attention to detail we are able to give them comes from accurate tracking of what we need to deliver.
  • We complete projects 25% faster than before and we can see where the bottlenecks are immediate. We have also been forced to document tasks in a more concrete manner which allows for better execution.
Shirin Elkoshairi | TrustRadius Reviewer

Plutio

  • Plutio enabled me to reduce cost by integration emails, invoices, and contracts in one spot. Possibly also project management, but I didn't use it long enough to need that function.
