Marketers Toolbox: Active Collab
There are so many project management tools on the market and it is difficult not to want to try every one. A shiny interface or nifty new feature may be a differentiator, but none of them are reinventing the wheel, the simpler the better.
Active Collab is a simple and effective project management system meant for team collaboration. Every team member has their own dashboard that is specific to their work, but with the simple task filtering, members can stay up to date with other projects.
The all-in-one calendar is great for coordinating teams with busy schedulings and avoiding double booking key dates or times. With messaging availible in the tool, it removes the need for a separate in-office chat tool. Active Collab also has a collaborative writing capability where notes can be taken and edited by the entire team. Other key features include: time tracking, invoicing, online payments, projects estimates, and reporting. Easily access through a browser or mobile app.
Pricing: Free 30 day trial with no credit card.
Active Collab replaces several tools with one streamlined dashboard that is sure to make collaboration more effective.
