★★★★★ The most comprehensive tool so far
“Over the past 10 years I worked with several online project management, collaboration and accounting tools, including Basecamp, Harvest/Forecast, Freshbooks, Trello, Asana, Teamwork, Podio, Wrike, etc. Two years ago we started working with ActiveCollab, and it is the most comprehensive tool so far. Compared to all other tools out there, it does the best job.”
