  • A central communication portal is used to keep all members of the team informed as to the status of specific projects. All staff have access to read past discussions to enable contribution to the current discussion.
  • We have found it difficult to get our clients to adopt usage of ActiveCollab for communication on a reliable basis.
  • The cost per person is high when using it as a communication center.

  • Powerful and useful integrations save lots of time (Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox, Zapier and more!).

  • It has saved us a TON of money (literally thousands) in project management software.
  • It has helped us gain clients because we can show them the template of what they will see and give them access to it. When others don't have software that does this.
  • Positive impact on ROI based on the time it's saving compared to our previous PM software.

  • For T& M teams, it is very good tools not only to manage teams but billing & invoicing.
  • we are able to generate invoices easily which earlier was a lot of headache & took lot of effort & time to do.
  • Whenever we encounter any issue in using any feature of AC, we get lot of support from their support desk.
  • Their customer service has been very responsive and helpful throughout.
  • Task management is USP of AC. It supports active tracking of our daily tasks & serves reminder if we miss on the targets defined, this helping us keeping on track & meeting the customer SLA's.

  • Active Collab has helped us to move to a completely digital project management system, moving away from physical time sheets and assignments many years ago. Since then, the platform has grown very quickly and very adeptly, and that is why we continue to use it.
  • The Active Collab platform helps us with quick, easy access to our project management system, even for off-site users, vendors and clients.
  • Time tracking and profit analysis has been great to help us price new agency services and change requests.
