Overall Satisfaction with ProjectLibre

This software is used by the IT department, specifically the project area. It is an open-source program specializing in project management of the company. Its operation is very similar to Microsoft Project that we used once. The main objective of the team using this software is to maintain an organization and management of development and infrastructure projects.

Pros

  • Open-source.
  • Compatible with Linux, Mac OS and Windows.
  • Friendly interface.

Cons

  • Translation of some words.
  • Interface is not fast and fluid.
  • Problems saving the file sometimes. The program closes.
  • See the Analytical Structure of the registered project.
  • Evaluate the critical path of the project.
  • Sequence tasks and use the main forms of dependencies between them.
ProjectLibre is a free tool with no limit for users using the tool and mainly works on all Windows, Linux and MAC OS operating systems. It is a very interesting alternative for those who are starting in the project management area. And you don't want to spend on paid software licenses and you want to try using a feature-rich project management tool.
We had to use ProjectLibre technical support a few times and whenever we used this service we were well taken care of and our cases were resolved quickly and cordially. You must understand English. Our most common problem was program errors closing while trying to save a file. And also doubts about the unfriendly interface of the software.
