Project Management

We here at Web.AppStorm always love a good time-tracking and invoicing app. Today we’re going to be taking a look at Harvest, one of the most popular options out there on the Net. We’ve featured it in a number of our roundups, including our 111 Web Apps to Rule Them All, and today we’re going to have a thorough look through it and its features.

Read on for our full review.

For small teams looking to launch exciting new projects in the 21st century, the web has played a very big part in helping some teams get organised and manage their projects completely online. For this reason, there have been plenty of interesting project management apps launching that bring their own set of features to the mix. However, a fair few of these are pretty pricey and for businesses with a large number of employees relying on the system, the per-user pricing model can quickly prove to be impossible to maintain financially.

An exciting new app making its mark in the project management field is Getquantify. With its vast array of features, it could prove to be the saviour to every project manager looking for a complete solution without the high price tag. (more…)

Many businesses today, perhaps web-based businesses especially, are changing from the traditional company structure. By allowing their employees to be more autonomous and having a less-sharply defined chain of authority, work can proceed with less interruption and without the need for consulting superiors on every decision.

10,000ft is a project manager designed to cater to the specific needs of companies using this new management structure. It’s beautifully designed and packed full of features. Let’s have a look at them… (more…)

Pretty much ever since I’ve been using computers, spreadsheets have been one of the programs I have used the most. I started out back when I was 7 years old and learning how to do formulas in Excel ’95, and have continued using it all the way to my university work now, where I’m pretty much doing the same thing (though on a much more complicated level)! But that’s not suprising: spreadsheets were considered the original killer app for PCs back in the early days of personal computing.

The concept of spreadsheets has been around for a long time. Spreadsheets are a powerful way to display and manipulating data, and now even being applied to project management. Smartsheet is a way to collaborate on and manage your projects without that traditional Gantt chart layout. Instead, it turns your project into a spreadsheet. It’s definitely unique – as far as I know, no other project management app takes this kind of approach – so let’s take a look and see what Smartsheet has to offer.

We here at Web AppStorm love a good project management app and the one we’re going to be looking at today, activeCollab, is not just a project management resource but also a way to collaborate, work with clients and invoice, all in one great app. Yes, it’s another project management app and another invoicing app, but it happens to be a really nice one, one that’s definitely worth looking at, even if you think you’ve already seen all that project management and invoicing apps could offer.

So, without further ado, let’s dive straight in.

When it comes to general group and project management apps, there are plenty out there to choose from. In that sense, it really comes down to what each organisation or group wants to achieve from the use of the app and this can really help to cement that decision. Another factor that often comes into consideration is the cost of using that app. Most of this sort of app run on a freemium monthly pricing model but if you don’t get a lot of business that month or you don’t have any projects currently on the go, you could potentially be throwing money at an app that you’re getting no use out of.

Open Atrium changes this. It’s an open source “intranet in a box” that makes collaboration simpler and more affordable than ever. All you need to get it running is a web server with a few basic requirements and then you’re away!

It’s no secret that we here at AppStorm come across a bunch of new project management apps on a regular basis. There’s so many project management web apps, but then again, there’s so many ways of tackling project management and to-do lists that it’s hard to classify them all together. Because of this, it can be hard to find the best ones that aren’t just carbon copies of other popular apps already out there.

Some task and project management apps provide ways of making task management as simple as possible, others pack in a lot of features, and the one I’m looking at today provides a unique twist by defining the most relevant tasks for the day ahead. Enter, GoalStacker.

Whether you’re a freelancer, billing your clients by the hour, or are working with your team on an awesome idea, It’s always a good idea to track your time. Tracking time lets you plan your tasks better, period. But most of the apps available are riddled with bugs or confusing UIs. Some are over dependant on one platform (desktop or web), limiting their scope.

Today we’re going to take a look at the new generation web app, Toggl. It looks so promising and comes up with a cheesy tagline “Time tracking that actually works”. Does it live up to its promise? That’s exactly what we’re going to find out.

Our contest is now closed. Congrats to Stephanie, Luis Paulo, Cris Noble, RobertW, and Lox for winning a free TeamGantt subscription!

There are way too many project managements apps in the market. In fact, project management web apps are one of the proud inventions of the Web 2.0 era. These apps come in all shapes and sizes, with most of them having almost identical featuresets. I often wonder if they all use the same code and use just a custom CSS!

That’s why it isn’t surprising to see that developers these days are coming up with innovative names for their apps dropping the word “project” from the description. Gantt charts are part and parcel of managing projects. These charts offer a bird’s eye view of how well the project is planned and how exactly the tasks are coming along.

Most modern day project management apps give this mission critical feature a miss. But not TeamGantt. TeamGantt is the fresh new easy way to use gantt chart software online. Is it simple enough to use?

If you’re an avid follower of Web.AppStorm, you’ll know that we review quite a lot of project and task management apps. The reason for this is that, in the age of everything becoming cloud-based, there’s a lot of demand for this type of thing. This demand means that apps must do their best to stand out amongst the crowd. One such app intent on doing just that is TriggerApp.

It promises to unify project and task management and does so in its sleek and modern interface. With support for several different features to ensure that no member of a project gets lost, it really is a great new contender in the field of management online.
