I'm in the process of starting my own agency. The clients I'm bringing are used to keeping a stern eye on the development of projects. What are some top project management software. Preferably with time tracking and invoicing.
Trello is all you need, free of course: https://trello.com/ If you need time tracking, try this one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/plus-for-trello-time-trac/gjjpophepkbhejnglcmkdnncmaanojkf?hl=en
We are also using Trello for managing projects. However, we are using Harvest for our time tracking.
there is a chrome extension for toggl time tracker, which also integrates into trello, gmail etc
It even supports tracking time per checklist item!
+1 to Trello as well. It's ridiculously versatile. I use it for organizing anything a little more complex in my life.
I'm moving to Seattle soon, so I've got a board for that too.
http://podio.com is great !
I use Trello! ;)
Trello: for my personal stuff.
Slack + Teamwork
Proofhub top the list of project management software because of its amazing user experience and smooth web app. Its like one stop shop which take care of your every need.
Asana + Harvest + Slack. All free (except Harvest) depending on how many users / features you need. But then again, if you're a business / professional, you won't have any problem paying for great software to do your job well.
Long-time Basecamp user (new and classic) who gave Trello a real try. Didn't stick for me -- just doesn't fit how my brain works. Once I got over the learning curve, I'm crazy about Asana.
We use Jira but we're looking into alternatives. It's just overkill and getting it configured to do what we want is a huge pain. We're looking at Pivotal Tracker, which I've worked in previously, but I'm less familiar with the project management features. And of course there's Trello, which is the polar opposite of Jira. I like it for getting work done, but it doesn't give out PMs the tools they need.
Redbooth. It's really quite good.
Trello for Project management and Harvest for time tracking for us. Sometimes on duo projects, we'll use Wunderlist Pro.
For project management we currently use JIRA for ticketing/tracking. We also use InVision to review and comment on more design-focused things. It also serves as a solid prototyping tool.
I think you'll never find something that's both a great project management tool AND a time-tracking/billing tool. They are kind of independent things. To be honest, if I was starting my own agency, I'd want a legit accounting package to track what's been billed, what's been paid and even keep track of the cost of business (expenses, payroll, etc).
What would you recommend in this case? Regarding an full accounting suite (time tracking, payroll, etc..)
A few years ago I used a product called Billings... I'm not sure how it's evolved or not... but worth checking out:
I dunno... for the accounting side of things I'd be looking at something like Quickbooks.
We use jira alongside with bitbucket. Someone opens a issue on jira, we fix on bitbucket and the issue is automatically solved on jira. You can somewhat track your time but it's not the best tool for it.
We use Asana internally and give the project owner on the client side access to a Trello board for higher-level view of progress on their project.
