project management software for a small firm

  • 1.  project management software for a small firm

    Posted 09-11-2020 01:34 PM
    I am looking for the best project management software for a small firm (principal plus drafter). Would that be Microsoft Project since I have MS Office 365? I would have to pay for the Project $10 or $30 per month subscription, depending if the Reports and desktop interface are worth paying 3x the basic subscription price.

    You should checkout Project Libre. Similar to MS Project but open source.

    Micah, I use a free product I found, I think it's made by one of the Universities called GanttProject it's easy to use and works like Project, I am not sure if it will do what you need but it is worth a go. Here is the link
