5 Best Project Management Tools




Hello,


How are you? If you are here and you are reading this, I assume you are the person who needs tools to manage their projects.


There are different types of projects: Personal, Research, Marketing, Design, and Software development and they need different kinds of approaches.


Software tools can make the job of a project manager easier. Let's discuss the different types of software that you can use to manage projects.


Let’s start with the main requirements that need to be fulfilled (in my opinion):


  • Determine Your Needs

  • Compare Features with Other Systems

  • Assess Accessibility

  • Consider Compatibility

  • Gauge Ease of Use

  • Look into Customization and Personalization

  • Monitor and Evaluate Impact


Project management tools come in different sizes and shapes, the choice is huge, but here are our favorite ones:


  • Clickup

  • Asana

  • TeamGantt

  • Monday

  • Instagantt


Let’s take a closer look at them, so you can select the best fit for you and your team.

Choose the Best for Your Team


It can be difficult to choose the right project management software. However, it is worth it before you distribute it to your entire team. Most project management software comes with a substantial setup fee. Although they are easy to use and allow you to import data, it takes some time to get everyone onboard and fine-tune the app to what you want it to do.


These are our all-time favorite ones and I have worked in every one of them, they are very comfortable, easy to use, and mostly help our team to collaborate and communicate.


Choose what is best for you and start doing great things.
