Project Management

I am looking for a hosted project collaboration tool to manage my client projects. Some of my requirements are: 1. It must be intuitive and easy to use.

2. It must have basic project management features like tasks and milestones with the ability to specify due dates.

3. I would like to be able to brand it so it looks like my company.

4. Integration with email would be great too since I know I probably won't be able to get any of my clients to use the tool. Any recommendations. Well, I have your answer. Some products to consider are: Basecamp: Central Desktop: TeamWork Live: They are all hosted, easy to use, and all allow you to brand the site. Basecamp is the simplest to learn but it has limited project management features. Note that you do not have the ability to assign due dates to to-do items in Basecamp. Central Desktop is the most full-featured of the three: It includes many additional features like online databases, customizable pages, and web meetings (costs extra). The amount of features makes it harder to learn, though, which might be a problem if you are using this with clients. My personal favorite is TeamWork Live: It has Basecamp's ease of use but it is much more full-featured. It is also fully integrated with email so your clients don't even have to login in to the site to collaborate with you. They can simply reply to the notification emails and it will automatically be saved to TeamWork Live. They have other features which I really like too, such as a full-text search engine and an internal Gmail-like messaging system. I'm putting together a site that aggregates articles about project collaboration software along with reviews of each of the product if you are interested. You can check it out at: Cheers, Dave
