In the tech community, Pivotal Tracker is a standard tool for coordinating teams on the same programming project. It divides tasks into "Epics" (large projects) and "Stories" (smaller tasks) and shows the state of each project and task - percent completed by project, and whether tasks are done / soon to be done / on ice. andnbsp;Pivotal Tracker is a good, solid tool for a team to use and one that I have chosen for some of my own projects. It is used by many other teams outside Pivotal Labs, the consulting company that originally created it, and is the standard tool used at Pivotal Labs.

Pros :

  • Pivotal Tracker automatically measures the work pace of individuals and teams. This is a very nice feature to have, as it really helps the team estimate how much it can get done over the course of a given week or another time period.
  • Then, Pivotal Tracker can automatically assign tasks within the projects to team members based on how quickly they are shown to work. andnbsp;Pivotal Tracker is also a good product for encouraging team members to take their own tasks - all the tasks are shown on a board and team members can auto-assign tasks, or be assigned tasks by any other team member.

Cons :

  • One disadvantage is that Pivotal Tracker locks teams into a Kanban-oriented style of project management. Not all teams choose to visualize their projects in this way.
  • I have worked with a number of teams that used other methods for project management, and the Kanban style can at times be a distraction for more top-down teams. andnbsp;
  • Pivotal Tracker also has a noticeable learning curve to be used properly, especially for people who have not worked with this style of project organization before. Specifically, the "Stories", "Epics" and the settings within them are not the most intuitive names and the controls are not the easiest to use.

Pivotal Tracker will, of course, feel most at home in businesses. It will save you time and money and the fact it is web-based and accessible from everywhere (there is even an iOS version for the iPhone and iPad) will appeal to any business, no matter how big or small. It’s a unique tool for managing your workflow, and if you’ve never found a project tool that worked great for your team, be sure to give it a try.

A simple to use interface, powerful features, seamless integration of functionalities, and efficient pricing makes activeCollab an excellent tool to be used for project management. It is ideal for people who deal with making proposals for projects, managing project deadlines and adhering to its timelines, negotiating with customers and suppliers, project budgeting and estimation, collaborating with a team and invoicing.

ActiveCollab is different from many of the other software listed as it is ONLY available as a stand alone install, meaning you purchase a license, download and install on a server, and work on it yourself. This is good for a number of reasons, and may cause some concerns.
