Project Management Overload

written by Autumn Shultz

 

Project Managers in every industry need all the help they can get – but especially if working in a flexible creative environment. That might be why there are over 350 Project Management software products on the market. 350. How are we supposed to choose? I have trouble in the grocery store pickle isle. How different can they really be?

The PM software industry is now over $1 billion with hundreds of competitive solutions. Reliability, ease of use, and ease of integration are the top three requirements project managers look for when shopping for software. Here is a great resource that allows you to filter all the software options based on your PM needs: Capterra

Stellar customer service and a robust system that’s still flexible are high on my wish list, so we use: ProWorkFlow 

I also subscribe to Function Point’s blog for lots of relevant creative PM info.
