Projectplace is hooked into the right cloud services (slack, zapier, etc) to make it one of the top contenders for online project management and integration. I've used it just a bit and seems like an excellent way to go. Looking forward to more experience with it and will report back then.

Projectplace is a smart collaboration solution which is easy to use, visual, and intuitive. Designed to connect and empower global teams, it serves as a single, centralized hub for projects, files, conversations, and reports that authorized users and collaborators, whether internal or external, can access anywhere, anytime, from any device.
With more than one million registered users on 150,000+ projects worldwide, Projectplace runs a whole host of features that include task management, document management, time management, workload management, portfolio management, reports and analytics, role-based access, kanban boards, Gantt charts, alerts and notifications, mobile apps, and many more for on-the-go project management.
A comprehensive solution that allows teams and organizations to plan, visualize, and keep track of their projects in real time, Projectplace is a no-installation, ready-to-go project management solution for companies with stakeholders spread across several different locations. It breaks down time zone and geographical barriers, streamlining communication across global organizations while minimizing travel costs.
Projectplace is equipped with the necessary visualization and workflow monitoring tools so you’re always on top of your tasks and projects, deliverables, priorities, and deadlines. With digital kanban boards, you can assign, execute, and collaborate on daily tasks with other team members. Documents are stored securely in the cloud in one centralized location, and Projectplace’s powerful built-in tools, such as instant messaging and online meetings, foster teamwork, engagement, and transparency.
Despite its focus on collaboration and teamwork, Projectplace implements role-based access controls so that access privileges are commensurate to user roles within the organization, e.g., external collaborators can view files and other data but not edit them.
With Projectplace, users can plan and execute tasks collaboratively using the digital kanban boards. Tasks are assigned on cards, and depending on their actual progress, can be moved from one status column to another. A clear overview of who is working on what can be seen easily with Projectplace.
Projectplace comes with an action planning tool that enables you to plan your team’s daily activities, set priorities, and assign issues to team members. It also has built-in project templates so you don’t always have to start from scratch when planning your projects.
Projectplace’s document management system enables users to upload images, documents, and other files that can be shared with colleagues and other users. The app's document version control functionality ensures users are always working on the most recent file version, and that, if needed, they can go back to a previously saved version. Projectplace also comes with a document locking feature that prohibits other users from making changes to a document you're currently working on.
There is a changes tracking and usage audit function to monitor how files and documents are being used and when, and to foster accountability among users. Documents can be referred to in your Projectplace conversations or in cards in your kanban board. Documents from third-party apps such as Google Docs can also be accessed and shared via Projectplace.
Successful team-based projects have one thing in common: effective communication, which, however, doesn’t just happen from out of the blue. Aside from commitment, a schedule, and a set of guidelines that everyone adheres to, collaborators are equipped with the right set of tools to foster a potent communication system.
Projectplace's smart and user-friendly collaboration tools allow teams to communicate in the most efficient way possible. Internal and external stakeholders are able to brainstorm and communicate through online meetings, email, instant messaging, or through links to personalized project sites. Chat groups can be created, and screens can be shared with up to 100 online meeting participants.
Resource conflict and tasks overload are two of the reasons why project delivery timelines aren’t achieved, resulting in delays, actual costs greater than the allocated budget, and a chaotic team relationship, among other things. With Projectplace, you get a workload management tool that shows you an overview of all scheduled projects and the resources assigned to each.
It allows you to immediately spot which resources are overbooked so that some of their workload can be assigned to others who are available.
Reports are a vital component of project management. They show the performance of your projects against targets or benchmarks. Projectplace has a report management functionality that enables you to present project data as updates useful to investors, stakeholders, project managers, and other partners.
Projectplace’s Enterprise edition covers basic reporting that includes summary reports of all projects in a portfolio. Relevant data can be filtered and viewed in real time, extracted into a report, and subsequently sent to clients and other stakeholders. With Projectplace, you can seamlessly generate reports for tasks, time spent on projects per member, costs, project statuses, milestones, work plans, document access rights, kanban boards, and so on.
Projectplace integrates with the following third-party apps: Dropbox, Google Drive, and Google Docs for document management; Mikogo for online meetings; and OneLogin, Ping Identity, and Okta for single sign-on. A Projectplace API is likewise available for custom integrations.
Projectplace has three subscription plans: ToDo, Team, and Enterprise. ToDo, which offers kanban boards for teamwork, is subdivided into three categories, namely Basic, Pro, and Plus. Basic is free, and Plus is priced flexibly, depending on what kanban features your team needs.
The Team plan, which is suitable for small to medium teams, is priced at $29 per user per month. It includes kanban boards, Gantt charts, document management, communication tools, meeting management, and a mobile app for Android and iOS devices, among other features. Enterprise offers a customize-as-you-go pricing scheme. More details for this plan can be obtained from the Projectplace sales team.
