What are the best online tools for project management?

Given the large variety of project management tools available online, it can be confusing and difficult to decide which one to choose. In order to help you decide which tool is best suited to your needs, we've outlined various aspects of some of the most popular tools available.

One of the major considerations when deciding which tool to choose is whether you want pay for a service or would prefer one that’s free. In addition, it’s important to consider the features you require. If yours is a large organisation, it’s likely that the more advanced features available in some of the paid tools will be more useful for you needs.

If you require a more simple tool and are either working alone, or with a small team, you may find that productivity applications such as Evernote/ Onenote may be enough for your needs. Whilst they aren’t specifically project management tools, they are very versatile and can be tailored to your individual needs.

Another useful tool to consider is Trello – this is a more traditional project management tool that uses a card-based system to provide a visual representation project progress. It also allows teams to collaborate easily and projects can be divided into separate boards.

Tools such as Basecamp, Asana and Teamwork can be useful for larger teams as they integrate several services into one place, including file sharing, communication and project management.
