Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

"I have a purchased copy of VIP Team To Do List. Has to be one of the best products I have ever purchased. Well worth it."

"I like the layout, categories, sorting, filters, and customizable print report. I love being able to change info on multiple tasks at once & being able to right click to change info on tasks."

Project tracking freeware vs. shareware

Project tracking freeware vs. project tracking shareware

Project tracking freeware is software designed for controlling work in project workgroups, while such a program is distributed and used for free. Shareware has the same purpose, but developers require payments for using it – project tracking shareware has only certain trial period (30-60 days) while it can be tried out for free. Some products are intentionally positioned as freeware to attract more clients, but in practice they are not totally free – actually they may ask for paid support, paid updates, paid advanced features etc. 

Usually marketing policy of many open source tools acts in such a way – freeware is just a basic sample with poor functionality, while some critical components and modules (for example collaboration module, or functionality extension, support etc.) are distributed separately, for money. Some web based tools (like Google solutions) show the similar situation – free basic version, but paid improvements. As you can see free software is not always what it is expected to be, but when you deal with project shareware you can try it first, and then decide if you are ready to pay for it. Usually, when you pay for software, you get certain guaranties for its quality, usability and free services, like support and updates.

  • Specific example :
