The project management product we were looking for

PROS

We looked at and tested several project management options and had used several in the past. Hive was never on our radar and unfortunately isn't as well known, but we discovered it through the WeWork employee portal and gave it a try. The set up was simple, it offered flexibility in terms of how you view and sort projects. It also allowed us to add external users without paying for a seat. This was extremely important because we want our clients to have access to our project boards, but we don't need full functionality for them. While it wasn't available when we first started using it, the addition of time tracking was a huge bonus for us as an agency, and Hive continues to impress us by adding additional features and functionality. When it comes to support, they are extremely responsive and in the rare times we have had to utilize support, issues have been resolved to satusfaction.

CONS

I wish there was a native integration with HubSpot, but we're able to get around that with Zapier.

Reason for choosing Hive

Part of the reason was that they offered a discount to companies that worked at a WeWork location, but it was also easy to set up and use during the trial period.

Reasons for switching to Hive

Asana did not offer pricing for less than 5 users and at the time, we only needed 2-3. We needed the additional functionality that came with the paid version but couldn't justify paying for seats that were going to go unused for an undetermined amount of time.

At times it runs a little slow with loading IM's and documents. At times, editing options are not av when you are proofing/editing a docum​ent in the proof section of a card.

Reasons for switching to Hive

We were looking for a better platform that fit the needs of the organization. As a virtual team, we needed a platform that provided better communication with our programs.

Good for Small, Remote Teams

Overall, Hive has been a good system for our team to work effectively. It gets the job done, although not always as simply as other tools.

PROS

The native time-tracking feature was one of the biggest reasons our team chose Hive as its primary project management tool. With a team as spread out as ours geographically, Hive has made it easier to collaborate and execute projects. Hive is always looking to improve, and we appreciate that they ask for feedback and implement it.

CONS

Hive has limitations in terms of its reporting and integrations. We would love to be able to build our CRM right in Hive to simplify our sales cycle work and time tracking, but we must still use a third-party at this point. Additionally, automations in Zapier and integrations with third-party apps are still not as robust as with other popular project management systems such as Asana.

Reason for choosing Hive

Time tracking.

Reasons for switching to Hive

Trello did not have a time-tracking feature.
