Ten Web-Based Project Management Tools

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

Most organizations use Microsoft Project as a project management tool. Microsoft have enjoyed many years of domination of the corporate project management tool market. Competitors like Clarity have challenged Microsoft, but MS Project remains dominant. And with recent enhancements its users can web-enable it on their intranet. Then add on Microsoft SharePoint and you have a neat suite of tools for project management and information sharing. But boy is it expensive! License costs can be in the $1000s per seat! Web-enabled project management tools are encroaching on Microsoft’s territory and can offer competing solutions at a fraction of the cost.

Here are ten such tools, and I’ve provided some of the marketese from their websites:

1. WebEx Weboffice

2. DeskShare ProjectDesk

3. Easyprojects.Net

4. AceProject

5. Clarizen

See Elizabeth Harrin’s review of Clarizen here.

6. Genius Project

7. Basecamp

Basecamp takes a fresh, novel approach to project collaboration. Projects don’t fail from a lack of charts, graphs, stats, or reports, they fail from a lack of clear communication. Basecamp solves this problem by providing tools tailored to improve the communication between people working together on a project.

8. Zoho Projects

9. ProjectsCenter

10. LiquidPlanner
