Specialty: Software / Technology
Incredibly versatile, one-man-band type of collaboration software.
It ties communication tools (HD videoconference and chat) with task management (recurring tasks, subtasks, ...), project management (lightweight Gantt chart, workload view and time tracking), all native, in one package. It also features native Android and iOS native apps.
These work well for keeping in touch with the team and create/update tasks.
This is specially important for teams who are dispersed (different cities, different timezones, ...).
While you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on different softwares for different purposes, Redbooth ties it all together in one.
They've been through a lot of changes over these 3-4 years and they don't seem to have found their core yet.
The UI still looks something out of the first drafts and doesn't look polished or slick like other players in the collaboration space like Asana or Slack.
The Dashboard is somewhat useless and just mimics a prettier email inbox while having the same behavior. Their premise of replacing email is a bit doubtful.
Lots of potential, but doesn't seem to go anywhere.
Redbooth can be complex at times with the amount of features it boasts. It is both a good and bad thing.
Spend time in their Help Center, watch some videos and don't be shy of asking for guidance. It will be worth it.
Force your team to use it every day and you won't want to work any other way.

The ability to stay on top of tasks, no matter how small, and keep all teams on the same page.
I do not have any negative comments at this time; it's been a big help overall!
I wish projects and the tasks within them could be duplicated, as many of our events are recurring from season to season.

I love how you're accountable for your tasks with deadlines and others can add input/help when needed.
There isn't anything I dislike :) Except for possibly the fact that you can't yet duplicate projects
Test it out, and I guarentee you'll be happy with it. It helps with time management, to-do list oriented tasks and builds conversation with co-workers.

Redbooth help keeps our larger teams moving forward; creating a central repository of information.
There are many task managers out there - and I surveyed about 20+ of them before settling with Redbooth.
Redbooth offers a robust feature set, while staying simple and easy on the eyes.
We found actual adoption and usability being a big stumbling block when we started to actual start to implement a company wide task tracker. We had tried Asana - but it's graphic design and complexity never allowed it to take hold. Redbooth is so quick to pick up that people actually like using it.
For a single feature - I like the "Task to Email".
I think the ability to assign a subtask with a date could be useful.
I would also like to be able to duplicate complete Projects.
Small issues really.
Don't go for the most feature rich; you need to have something easy to use. Consider yourself the most tech savvy person who will use the software.
