Project management software can help you keep any type of project on time and on budget. There is no need to spend big bucks for complicated software when online project management programs are easy to use and inexpensive.
Zoho Projects is one such example. It is part of a suite of online products from Zoho. Zoho Projects is a web-based project management, collaboration, and issue tracking software that allows your team to collaborate and get things done faster.
Any project you or your team create can include time tracking, a Gantt bar chart to show start/finish dates, a calendar, and RSS and iCal support so information can be easily transferred. You can track hours put into the project and document who did what as well.
Planning and Tracking helps you keep your project on schedule. Collaboration helps improve the communication within the team and keep everyone on the same page. And the new Bug Tracking module helps your team iron out the very last minute details.
Another plus: You can upload any file type like .doc, .xls, .xlsx, .docx .pdf, .pps, .ppt, .avi, .jpeg, .wmv,.zip, .mpeg, etc. and it can import your files from Google Docs as well.
Zoho Projects works with multiple administrators, which is very handy if you’ve got more than one person overseeing the project.
For a single project you don’t pay anything. Once you’ve got multiple projects in the pipeline, it costs $12 a month for the minimum setup (10 projects with 2GB of file storage), or up to $80 per month for unlimited projects and 30GB of storage. You probably don’t need the high-end version. First, experiment with the free version to see if this tool can help you get projects done.
