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.

    We used PODIO before, but configuring it to our needs was a lot of work as we did not know how to get the max benefit out of it. Perhaps if you'd get a one-to-one session with them on the configuration stage, things would go much faster.

    Pros : 100% customizable, perhaps to any of your need, a lot of apps available

    Cons : Hard to configure it to some "best usage" in your own field. It's doable, but it takes you a lot of time than any out of the box tool that is doing a similar job.

    No one loves apps more than we do as a tool for improving your productivity and making life easier.  Podio will mean that I can roll up what I am doing in Trello, Zoho, CRM and Producteev into one product and at my level of business it is currently free.  That is awesome.  I don't think I've ever been happier. It's that good I would consider paying for it, even though its free.

    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.

    I've been using Podio almost since it was an startup. It was great to use it as a internal communication tool,.... however, if you need to go further on the project management and knowledge, or many other uses.. it gets complicated and limited. The way it's built allows for a lot of uses and applications, but none of them is the main purpose the application is built for, ... so in some part you will face the limitations.
