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.

The fact that QuickBase is customizable is a big selling point on this program. You can conduct almost all of your business utilizing this program. The program offers technical support and promises ease of use. However, in order to keep QuickBase from being too good to be true, the pricing creates a problem for many small and start up businesses that would otherwise be interested in utilizing the program for their business management needs. This set aside, if you have the resources to use QuickBase, it is a great program, easy to learn and easy to customize.

Quickbase does not offer a phone number for customer service and sometimes take days to respond to e-mails. I often seem to know more about the program than the service representative I get - my boss says if I stay on the phone long enough with Quickbase I will figure a way around the problem while they tell me all the reasons something can't be done. I have found you can't respond to the surveys they send honestly if you want any help next time. The rep will scold you about how it negatively impacts their career and will likely not pick your email next time which means you wait that much longer before you get help next time. The reps like to call after office hours so they can show they attempted to respond quickly but you get no real help. The table-to-table relationships are so convoluted you will need a half-dozen fields and a weird relationship table to get information from one table to another, and then it won't arrive the way you want: It may be a drop-down that you have to click on four different fields to get the info from the other table. Ever need a simple number generator (x+1) for invoice numbers, job numbers, etc? Go somewhere else or hire someone to build you one (Excel users will cry). You get the response: we are working on that. Bottom Line: when developing a management program you will have time-sensitive issues that will make you wish for something better.
