Project management applications let you perform your tasks and follow your project schedules considering available time, budget and workforce. Both kinds of PM software deserve your attention, but each of the solutions will best fit your needs and meet your specific requirements only if taking into account your readiness and ability to use either Internet or LAN to manage projects and tasks.

Online task tracker often refers to a browser-based web application that lets you access information (like projects, tasks, documents, schedules, etc.) over Internet. For example, Google Calendar allows you to use your favorite browser and stable Internet connection to access your projects and to-do lists stored on web servers. You do not have to deploy, maintain and administrate your own server locally in your company because all project data is stored on Google servers. Online daily task tracker seems to be the perfect solution for project management but still not so many companies today use web applications to manage projects and tasks. Among many reasons, there are the major ones which are listed below:

  • Dependence on Internet connection. Although Internet is the major benefit of online task tracker software, it may become the weakest side of web solutions because companies are dependent on live, high-speed and stable Internet connection. When Internet is unavailable or low-speed, companies cannot access web servers so they cannot do their projects and tasks.
  • Inconvenient interface. Most users who’ve ever tried either commercial or open source applications say that they face difficulties with using web-based interface options and tools that seem to be inconvenient, uncommon and without contextual menu. Those users have to spend additional hours or even days on learning interface options of online free software packages .
  • Lack of project data control. Online scheduler allows keeping project data on remote web servers, and this opportunity seems to be great. But what if you need to retrieve some information about your project (like files, documents, records, reports, etc.) from the web server that keeps your project data? You are dependent on 1) Live Internet connection and 2) Capabilities of the web server control panel. But if you maintained a local server at your office and deployed there your project data, you would easily access the server directly or over LAN.

The listed reasons why many users do not like using online php task tracker software turn into benefits of using desktop task tracker applications. And here is the explanation:

Online task tracker vs. Desktop task tracker
  • You do not have to use Internet to access your projects and tasks – all information is stored locally.
  • There is no need to access web servers as you can deploy your own server in your office.
  • You and the rest users do not face troubles with using interface options and tools because desktop task tracker solutions have convenient and familiar interface.
  • You do not have to make regular fees for chargeable web services since you use your own local server.

You can gain all the benefits by using VIP Task Manager. VIP Task Manager is a desktop-based, 30-day free solution that helps you plan, follow and track tasks and schedules of your projects. The software application supports user collaboration, yet it can be also used like a personal solution. VIP Task Manager is available for free during 30 days of the trial period.
