A Cost Effective Project Management Tool.

It is an easy to use and cost effective project management tool.

Pros

Projectlibre is tool that is being used across the entire organization. We use it in tracking of projects and allows us to keep organized when having multiple projects. One thing that makes it our preferred option is that it cost effective and also has a user friendly interface.More to that i like it s hierarchical organization of projects.

Cons

Though the interface is use friendly, i think it is little bit old and need some updating. I also wish the editing and graphics features updated.

Projectlibre Review

Pros

If you can throw away everything you know about other spreadsheet services when you use Projectlibre, it will be easy to pick up and understand. You have to remember that while it looks similar to a spreadsheet, it is an entirely different platform with different purpose and functionalities. Once you get into the hang of it, Projectlibre will make managing projects and resources a breeze. Another pro about this software is that there are tons of help videos and articles online if you ever get stuck.

Cons

What we least liked about Projectlibre was the large learning curves for newcomers. It took a little while to get the hang of and understand what some of the prompts mean.

Reasons for Choosing ProjectLibre

We chose ProjectLibre as our project tracking tool because it has a free, fairly comprehensive version: Projectlibre Open Source.

Manage time

I like it, graphically is nice and all the functions and tools give the Gantt chart a very simple look.

Pros

I liked the simplicity of the use, I used this for a class to explain how Gantt charts work and it was really interesting to all students.

Cons

Even when it is a simple tool to manage and administrate task in a timeline it will not work for a company, because it is just the Gantt chart with dependencies, so if you are looking for a complete software it will not be helpful.

Free Project Management Software Gets the Job Done

We use it for simple project management timelines. We don't get too in depth with them and will probably buy software if we become a bigger operation.

Pros

This is a free version of software like microsoft project. It has most the same functionality and use.

Cons

It has some known glitches, but that is to be expected it is free, it also isn't as intuitive as some of the paid alternatives are.

Reasons for Choosing ProjectLibre

Don't use it enough yet to buy the alternative

Currently the best software for timeline construction beside MS Projects

Project Libre is the only timeline application we use in our company. It is easily accessible by anyone (being opensource) and the export feature works great too.

Pros

It can basically do everything MS Project can do at the price point of $0.

Cons

The user interface of the software is very dated, it is very clear the software is written for function and not for aesthetics.

Reasons for Choosing ProjectLibre

The price point is the main reason why we went with Project Libre.
