Looking for a cloud based MS Project alternative? Active Collab is a superior alternative to Microsoft Project, both in ease of use and functionality.
For most projects, MS Project is overkill. In fact, it's counterproductive on projects that are constantly changing. In those cases, Active Collab is a better choice.
Active Collab is the agile alternative to MS Project. It has all the project management and scheduling features you need, and more.
Just like in MS Project, you can break down work into tasks, assign people to tasks, set start and end dates, see everything on a Gantt-like timeline, and run a workload report.
So what makes Active Collab different from MS Project?
Active Collab enables you to collaborate with your team, manage projects with more flexibility, track progress, monitor project activity, and see what's going on in real-time.
Active Collab is a web-app so you don't have to install anything. To see and manage your projects, all you need to do is visit a web page in your browser.
With MS Project on the other hand, you have to send bulky .mpp files or constantly export PDFs. This wastes a lot of time because whenever you update project plan, you have to manually let others know.
Active Collab makes working on projects simple. It allows teams to share files, meet deadlines, assign tasks, and centralize communication.
Active Collab centralizes project management, collaboration, time tracking, and invoicing all in one place so you and your team can stay productive.
Unlike MS Project, Active Collab favors collaboration over project planning. Project plans change anyway and it's the collaboration that is the key to project success.
