To manage the work of a team or staff members the specialized tools are offered at the market - these are special management systems that include a full range of functionalities needed for a leader.
Moreover, this is not just a solution for management: all the features of such systems can be used by regular team members, project managers and also clients. Experience has proven that the use of such modern services of project management helps essentially improve productivity of work, ensure its high quality and outcome.
We compared several popular project management systems such as:
We evaluated them in view of how easy-in-use and efficient they are, and are ready to share the results with you.
Nowadays Trello is one of the popular solutions for project management. It’s based on Kanban management methodology that was created by managers of automotive giant Toyota. The main feature of this approach is the principle of visualization of tasks that the team has. They are divided into several blocks - boards:
And as the task in Trello is being performed, it gradually moves from the first board to the last one. This approach is easy in use, however as the experts notice, it lacks visualization - when using Kanban it’s impossible to follow the progress of the tasks within one particular board. In other words, you cannot quickly and precisely estimate, when exactly the task will move to the next stage. For this purpose it has to be divided into small sub-parts. However, in this case all other tasks from the divided block have to be re-assigned.
Handy functions and options of Trello are as follows:
First of all, this system is meant for tracking the errors in the work of program code, and for solving the arising errors too. And at the same time it provides a wide range of solutions for project management.
Below are the main features of Jira for a project team:
As we can see, Jira provides the performers and managers with more resources for effective teamwork, including wide range of possibilities of planning and time management.
However, this system has its own cons:
This project management system attracts attention first of all thanks to having a wide range of functionalities and being easy-in-use at the same time.
The developers have included pretty much all needed set of tools for each member of a project team:
While working in Intasker, you can grant permission access to certain parts of the project to the actual client - this way they will be able to see the results of separate tasks, to learn work in progress for the final product as well as to control meeting the deadlines.
The ToDo-list is created in the Intaster interface textually, however literally with one mouse click you can build a visual and easy-to-use Gantt chart. The tasks are illustrated there as chart rows which allows to visualize not only their priority but also volume and time left for completion. Thanks to this feature Intasker has an obvious advantage over both above mentioned competitors.
You can invite an unlimited number of users to teamwork. This allows to complete projects of almost any size with the help of Intaskser, which makes this system a suitable practical tool both for small business and large companies dealing with project activities. Besides, no limit on the number of users gives an opportunity to invite to teamwork on a project specialists from different regions and even countries. Each of them can individually configure the time zone and select the language version - Russian or English.
One more important particularity of Intasker is a well thought out system of notifications and communication between the users. Each team member can individually set up receiving notifications when status of their tasks is changed or when comments are added to them. Moreover, messages can be sent not only to email, but also in Telegram - no other vendors offer such an option.
Users can add comments to each task, attach documents and links. Besides, all these additions are reflected in real-time mode which ensures a more effective communication within a team. Also, one has to notice that Intasker allows to set the access rights for each user individually - they will see only those sections and information which are required for their work.
Trello offers its users 3 pricing tiers:
When choosing a free plan you get a basic package of functions which pretty limits the possibilities of using Trello: a possibility of adding maximum one improvement to Kanban-board, minimum capacity for automation of manager’s work. All these options are offered within the paid plans.
