If you’re in need of some serious project management and you need it to be not only online and accessible, but feature-rich and very robust, then this might be your choice. To be honest, however, I think most teams and project leads will find Comindwork to be overkill.
For what it’s designed to do, though, Comindwork is a very good app. It’s relatively easy to use, powerful, and has every feature you can imagine for project collaboration and management. Gantt charts, blogs, collaborative tools, file sharing, and so forth are all there.
Comingwork enjoys the advantage of having been built from the ground up with nearly all of its current features in mind during the process. This means the designers didn’t have to cobble together extras later on. That, in my experience, is the number one killer of the very large application.
Too often, very large apps become top-heavy and unwieldy with their over-abundance of features that are hidden in esoteric menu trees that no one but the software’s managers understand. Because Comindwork doesn’t suffer from this, it’s definitely a step above the other large-scale PM apps.
The real shining features of Comindwork, besides it’s robust nature, are its collaborative and blogging tools. These allow for easy communication and great flexibility in how that communication takes place. A nice touch is the ability to ad file attachments to tasks and project updates. So memos and such don’t need to be cut-and-pasted from their original.
Overall, if you’re a large operation that needs Web-based tools for the management of very complex projects, Comindwork is definitely worth trying. For smaller shops and freelancers, this tool is definitely well above anything you’d use and most of its functions will lay dormant for you.
The app is free to try with pricing ranging from $1/day to $20/user per month. Larger-scale versions can be purchased for local install on your own servers as well.
