GetApp’s Integration Leaders in Project Management

Find the project management software products that integrate best with other apps.

GetAppResearch

We’re living in the golden age of software integrations, which today are an essential component of any business’s tech stack. But which apps do integrations the best?

To find out, we analyzed integrations data for some of the highest-rated products on the market, compiling our findings into this Integration Leaders report.

Integration Leaders in project management

First, we calculated an integration score for each product based on GetApp user reviews data (see our full report methodology at the bottom of this page). We used that score along with the overall product ratings to narrow down to the top products, and plotted the results on a grid. The highest-scoring products are our Integration Leaders.

User review excerpts

"I've been using MindMeister for a couple of years now. Since its launch, people at MeisterLabs have kept trying to bring me into their task manager. A few weeks ago, I finally committed some time to test-drive the web and phone apps. Integration is excellent, ergonomics are great, design is sleek, responsiveness perfect. The thing I appreciate the most is that we can collaborate on shared tasks while keeping the accounts free. This is a great present from the company!"

"Can do all the functions for tasks and projects, integrates well with Outlook which is a big plus. Clean UI and easy to use, I like the features better than Trello and Asana mainly due to the Outlook email integration."

"My experience with MeisterTask has been great. App is very easy to use and understand. I love the integrations with on-line cloud spaces. I can upload, download and review my tasks and photos easily with almost seemless effort. Although there are some integrations that I feel can be added or useful, I manage to find a way to resolve the miscommunication between some apps and programs."

Report Methodology

Integration Leaders reports highlight top-ranked products based on ratings from end users. Products are scored on two dimensions: integrations and overall ratings.

Data sources include approved user reviews, public data sources, and data from technology vendors. Please refer to the GetApp Community Guidelines for more information.

To be eligible for inclusion in a category, products must meet the following criteria:

  • Product has at least 20 unique product reviews published on GetApp within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report.

  • Product achieves a minimum normalized overall rating.

  • Product has at least 10 unique product reviews that discuss the quality of that product’s integrations with other products.

  • Product achieves a minimum positive sentiment score for reviews that describe integrations, based on our proprietary assessment.

  • Product shows evidence of offering required functionality as demonstrated by publicly-available sources, such as the vendor’s website.

The Integrations Score is calculated based on the sentiment of user reviews that describe a product’s integration capabilities, based on our proprietary assessment.

The Overall Rating score is calculated based on overall user ratings for each product. Newer ratings are weighted more heavily.

The matrix table showing each product’s integrations with the most commonly-integrated apps in the market is supplemental; those data do not factor into a product’s qualification for, scores in, or placement on the Integration Leaders chart.

The data used in the matrix table were collected from vendor websites and other publicly-available data sources. Individual integration capabilities were not evaluated by the GetApp team. The data is believed to be accurate at the time of publication, but readers should note that vendors will continue to expand and change the integrations they offer over time. Our reports will not reflect such changes in real time; such changes will be reflected if and when we update the report in the future.
