On-Line Project Management Tools

 As much as I love the improved features of MS Project 2010, recently I have been experimenting with alternative project management and collaborative software.  

First stop Google’s Apps Marketplace


Currently there are 40 applications dedicated to project management.

I have selected 5 I have found  to be best and will give an in-depth review of each one.

I will review their pros and cons.   While none of them are as robust as Microsoft’s Project tools they are much cheaper, in some cases free, and because they all reside in the cloud, the have the potential to become instant collaboration tools.


Have a look for your self and let me know what your favorites are and why.

Looking forward to your review of some of these. I work at a small firm that still does their time sheets in excel and we are paying for it. We are already using Google Apps and an online project management system is my next step.
