Perfect for marketing and advertising start ups

2016-12-06

Basecamp is probably the best way to sync your work team, especially when you have to work fast and you don't have the opportunity to work face to face. It's an excellent manager and tool for control the deadlines and activities of your people

Pros

1) The user interface and the material design in apps and website 2) Sync with google 3) Perfect for track the progress of your teamwork projects

Cons

The website goes down sometimes :/

Good Product Needs Improvement

2017-03-29

Overall the user experience is head & shoulders above Basecamp, however, there are still essentials missing from the product in terms of reports, views and even small tweaks here and there that an experienced PM would want in their software.

Pros

Mush more effective than Basecamp

Cons

Inability to customize

Been using TeamWork for our agency for the past 2 years. Great upgrade from Basecamp

2017-06-27

Better task management for all our client.

Pros

More functionality then we had with Basecamp. This is one of the main reasons we started to look for other solutions.

Cons

UI can be a little tough to get used to, but once you do, it's a great tool. We love the ability to create sub-tasks of sub-tasks. This was a must for our agency.

The Best Product Management Application. Period.

2017-02-23

After spending years on Basecamp, MS Project, JIRA and Asana, this is by far the most flexible and feature rich.

Pros

Fast. Really fast. New features are added constantly and by request. Development team are super open to feedback and input. Email integration is amazing and the Gantt chart is fantastic.

Cons

Task management can be a little clunky.

Teamwork is all about tasking at the granular level, which is great for teams!

2018-07-12

It makes Basecamp and Asana look clunky and wimpy, in that order!

Pros

I like the way Teamwork allows me to easily add files, links, and resources to my tasks. The Notebook function is a great place to organize passwords or boilerplate. But I'd have to say the ease with I can add and remove collaborators is a real perk. It helps me know that I am tracking each phase of the work process without cluttering in-boxes or needing to repeat myself. I've used the templates option to create standard work process checksheets to make certain I don't miss a step. There's also a way to make some tasks contingent on the ones prior, like dominos!

Cons

I have to look back at another dashboard to see if my team has completed the tasks delegated to their attention. And the email CRM doesn't compare with Nimble, so I'm really not using that function very much.

Teamwork Projects is very intuitive & easy to use.

2018-04-10

Biggest benefit is time saved on projects as well as visibility in to progress on tasks across projects.

Pros

Really like the Gantt Charts feature to show project progress. It's very easy to track & assign tasks across a team. Especially useful if you're working a lot with remote teams. I like how flexible it is for dealing with different types of projects.

Cons

The only challenge I face is when new team members try to use Trello or Basecamp. Teamwork is just much better that these tools.

Teamwork is the best option I could find.

2017-12-08

Pros

* Very easy to use * Picks up where basecamp 1 and 2 left off * Very versatile - you can use basic features well or get advanced easily.

Cons

* Workload / resource scheduling could be done better * Per user fee - not that bad, you can grow with it. * UI could be a little more progressive, but it's not bad and the UX is very solid

Easy to Use with Complexity to Adjust

2018-05-23

It keeps our team on track and helps us understand which team member we are waiting on a piece of the project from. From an overall view of a project and how efficiently tasks are being completed to a detailed view using Gantt Charts, it's easy to see my team's productivity. Plus it's easy to see what I have to do, to set up repeating tasks, to add special permissions to my team members and more. Would highly recommend Teamwork PM!

Pros

We switched from Basecamp 2 to Teamwork and have never looked back.

Cons

I really don't have anything negative to say. The price, the usability and the benefits are all right for our small business.

Easy team collaboration and task segmentation.

2018-01-11

Teamwork allows for collaboration and to track history of messages that don't get lost in email. The program makes it super easy to bring together our remote team into one place to prioritize the day, stay on track of tasks, and coordinate together.

Pros

Teamwork was an awesome transition for our team from Basecamp. It offers many robust task assignment and tracking features we didn't have before.

Cons

Figuring out where to check the tiny boxes to notify people was a tough adjustment for the team. Other than that, it's been a great tool and easy adjustment.

Project management from A to Z!

Manage all my work projects. Can't live without it :)

Pros

I've been using it for over 5 years and switched from Basecamp (after getting frustrated with lack of features there).

Cons

I wish the plans didn't have project limitations. It has a limit of 15 projects. For a solo freelancer the next plan is too much, but the limit of 15 projects plan often runs short. (I typically need to manage 20 ongoing projects)

Best Project Management Software Hands Down!

2017-03-29

There is no comparison to Basecamp, the tool I've seen other organizations use and the tool I was using before adopting Teamwork.

Pros

Intuitiveness of all of the tools. Integration of all of the tools to work together. The appearance and flexibility to customize it for each unique organization. As an educated graphic and interactive media designer, I applaud the UI designers. Very clean, no-nonsense, where the design and placement of interactive objects don't get in the way of the use.

Cons

Love the new calendar. Would like to see how it could populate both ways to a Google calendar. This may already be possible and I just haven't explored it yet. Really can't think of anything, though.

TeamWork is just awesome

2016-02-02

Previously I used: • WorkFlowMax - but Task Management and staff allocations sucked • BaseCamp - which is basic and expensive • FreshDesk - for ticketing which is expensive • Skype - where you lose messages and can't find old conversations easily Enter TeamWork.

Pros

Incredible task management and collaboration features. One place for Projects, tasks, tickets and chat. Oh and you can turn a ticket in Desk into a task in Project - this is awesome.

Cons

Invoicing is a let down. This is why I only gave it 4 stars for overall. Really it's worth a 5 - but invoicing is a minor pain compared to WFM. But because of all the other benefits it's a 100% happy ending.

Finally found what we were looking for

2017-01-24

We started out using Basecamp and it just couldn't meet our needs.

Pros

The feature set is great for agencies with a lot of similar type of recurring projects. Project and Task templates, easy to use, robust features, time tracking built in, integrates perfect with their sister product - teamwork desk (support ticket tracking system). Great open API (we use it to kick off project templates from salesforce.com and report time and utilization back to salesforce.com dashboards). The support team is amazing, in fact everyone we have ever interacted with at Teamwork has been incredible. Plus, when you look around, the price is incredible for the feature set.

Cons

We have a crazy amount of tasks per person across many projects and many clients. Looking across everything is a little cumbersome at times. You can look across projects, users, tags, etc. it just could be a little easier sometimes. I am really stretching for a negative here, but that is all I can really think about that I would want to see improved.
