We use it for technical projects and general customer service. It works great and the price is unbeatable! Highly recommend for teams that have technical and non technical users. Its just so simple and flexible to use for types of projects. Can easily use it on the web or iPhone or Android so pretty much anyone can use it anywhere. I like that it's easy for everyone to use so people actually use it and work becomes so much more pleasant and organized.

This is my new go-to task management app.What I like most is that this software is easy to navigate and use. Also, there are not a million notifications and emails whenever there is a task. The layout is minimal but helpful, each tab is easy to find and each plan includes detailed information that is easy to view and edit. The website had good navigation and the mobile app runs smoothly. There is a generous amount of storage in the files section and the file sharing in-app is super convenient and time saving!

Anyone can start using it right away. Once you sign up, it only takes a few minutes to understand the way it works since its pretty intuitive. We use it for IT projects, Sales projects and managing HR related projects but I can see how people can use it for practically anything that has tasks and needs to be organized. Also the chat and activity feed feature lets teams stay current without having to send out emails all the time.

The program allows you to access your data from anywhere which is great when you find yourself with a few extra minutes, The price can't be beat and the customer service actually has a phone number you can call to reach a live person! The program itself is similar to other project management programs and is easy to follow if you have previous experience using project management programs.
