  1. Gretasays:

    Hi, I would like to recommend you a simple application for managing projects in line with Kanban method: http://kanbantool.com/

  2. Tiffanysays:

    basecamp, proofhub and asana works best for most of people. proofhub does come with a free plan, basecamp I don’t know if they do now. I hope this info would help others 🙂

  3. abbey robinssonsays:

    Talygen is another project management tool that helps project managers to manage multiple projects, allocate tasks, share documents and interact with the team. This application works fine on all leading smartphones.

  4. morris jamessays:

    Out of three, to me proofhub seems to be much better because of it’s UI and free plan.

  5. Rosesays:

    The list is quite appreciable, in my knowledge there is project management tool like proofhub which comes with free services facility also.

  6. Jane Berrysays:

    I haven’t tried anything in this list before but I’ll definitely check them out. I’m currently using proofhub for time tracking, collaboration, and project management. I am really happy with this tool. Great post though. Thanks.

  7. William Hackettsays:

    My company started out using Freelance Cockpit, but now that we’ve grown it’s become a little tricky to continue expanding it (although this is an extremely easy process thanks to the Code Igniter framework). Although, once you’re at our stage you can start using solutions from SalesForce.

  8. I’d like to suggest Fanurio (http://www.fanuriotimetracking.com) which is a time tracking and billing software application, highly appreciated by freelancers for its intuitive interface, flexible timer and ability to produce detailed invoices. It runs on OS X, Windows, Linux and other flavors of Unix.

    I know that there are many freelancers who prefer to use a desktop application in order to keep their data on their own computers. Since Fanurio is a desktop application, it integrates very well with the platforms it runs on. On OS X, you can easily access timers from the the menu bar and from the dock icon menu. On Windows, you can start a new timer or control the active timer from the thumbnail toolbar or from the tray icon. You can also use global hotkeys to control the timers from within any running application.

    Fanurio is used by many freelancers not just to track time but to bill their clients as well. Fanurio can export invoices to HTML, PDF, Microsoft Word 2007, OpenOffice OpenDocument and other formats so they can be printed or e-mailed. Invoice templates can be created manually, with a visual editor (Adobe Dreamweaver, Microsoft Word or OpenOffice) or with the built-in template editor.

    I hope this helps.
