Cheap project management software vs. Inexpensive project management software


Finding the right project management software for your company can be a challenging task. There are lots of vendors who offer free, cheap and inexpensive project management software solutions, and your challenge is to decide what amount of money you are ready to invest in either inexpensive PM software. Alternatively you can try to resolve the challenge by simply selecting one of the nonprofit project management software products which are freely distributed through the Web. 

To make your matters better, it is important for you to decide why you need project management software (the purpose) and only then start looking for a solution that meets your needs and expectations at the most. There can be three typical situations that define the purpose. Let’s review each of the situations.

  • Situation #1: Your business is a profit-oriented organization which is ready to invest a considerable amount of money in complex multi-user project management software. Your business generates some revenue, and a part of this revenue can be invested in highly effective yet inexpensive project management software shareware which allows you to organize tasks of your employees, control projects, and undertake various business activities (such as advertising, marketing). At the same time, your business organization is not interested in using PM for nonprofits, because such software does not typically provide all necessary options and features required to advanced business administration. Also you are unlikely to be interested in a cheap PM package which offers weak and insufficient functionality.
  • Situation #2: Your nonprofit organization needs to manage projects and undertake project management activities but you do not have enough investments or you are not interested in making overhead investments in acquiring ad implementing expensive software solutions. Then most likely your best choice is to get project management software for nonprofits. Such software is often available for free (project management software for free), or has some nominal charge. Also you can look for shareware products that you can evaluate and use for free within a trial period.
  • Situation #3: You are a self-employed person or a freelancer who may have various needs and requirements to organize your freelancing work. For example, you are a copywriter or a reporter working for some online newspaper. Obviously, you want a solution that could help you plan your work, create simple projects, and track task statuses so that you would complete and submit your articles and reportages on schedule. Most likely you are not ready to spend a considerable amount of money on expensive and complex solutions for task management (e.g. MS Project); however, free or cheap project management software is inapplicable to you. Probably, the best choice for you will be inexpensive single-user solutions for freelancers.

You need to consider each of the situations and think which situation describes your business most precisely. Then you can make the right choice and start managing your projects in the best way.
