What makes ActiveCollab better project management tool than Podio

Podio introduces foreign concepts (custom apps, workflows) to project management and collaboration. Because of that, it's not a good fit for most business because they need software that's easy learn and doesn't require much setup.

With ActiveCollab, you can start collaborating within minutes. Once you create a project, others can immediately start adding tasks and collaborating. This will save you a lot of time and, most importantly, your team will be much happier and more productive.
