Best Project Management Software in 2018

A number of businesses are moving away from legacy systems with digital transformation projects, among others, raising the number of ongoing projects and thus the need for Project Management software. Understandably, there’s been an explosion in the number of Project Management software products.

The Project Management software landscape is divided between products that provide task assignment and project tracking abilities, and those that focus more on collaboration tools, file-sharing etc.

Some of them also have some human resource features built in, such as time-tracking, leave management, while others come equipped with basic accounting functionalities, such as invoicing. There are some built specifically for financial management, so there’s a fair variety.

As a result, there is a significant overlap with workflow, collaboration, task management, and to-do list management software. A number of these solutions are trying to do it all, either by enhancing their list of features, modular add-ons, or by adding integrations across platforms using APIs.

Software can be a key success factor in the management of projects. Specialized apps can help organize and streamline operations that help professionals achieve project goals quicker and more efficiently. Project management software typically focuses on workflow scheduling, deliverables tracking, events management, resource planning, task and time tracking, and process optimization. Software-aided performance optimization across all business functions can significantly improve the odds of success in the management of projects.  Read the full software guide...
