Collabtive Project Management_review

If you are a member of a web development team or you coordinate a group or simply you are just a freelancer you probably use a project management software. Some of them can be very heavy if we talk about UI/UX so for those who think about a change or if you just haven’t picked one yet here is our staff pick for this topic: Collabtive.

About

Collabtive is web-based project management software. The project was started in November 2007.  It is Open Source software and provides an alternative to proprietary tools like Basecamp. Collabtive is written in PHP and JavaScript.

Why our favorite? Best interface between all (open source/free) platforms, easy to customize (PHP/JS), great features, straight forward and of course it’s open source.
