Overall Satisfaction with Redmine

In our company, we use Redmine for IT project management, including activities, tasks, schedules and time spent by each individual on each activity/task. We have a project manager that is responsible for creating the projects and delegating appropriate access. After that, every employee is responsible for checking delegated tasks, inputting the time spent and writing down any relevant notes. When a project is finished, all necessary information is on Redmine so managers can evaluate the development process.

Redmine stacks up to its competitors by being free and open-source. Additionally, it is an easy tool to install and maintain in any operating system, like Linux and Windows. Administrators will not have so many headaches when getting it running. You can customize the code and the interface in order to get better usability and/or to adapt it to your company's visual identity.
Redmine is well suited if you are looking for a low-cost solution that is still robust and reliable. It is able to manage multiple projects and delegate appropriate access to members. It is also easy to use. Redmine can be less appropriate if you are looking for a system with a pretty interface and a good user experience. Although there are some themes available on the internet that can help you achieve that, Redmine does not have good usability.
