‍πŸŽ₯Β  The essentials of good project management software

Before the golden trophy finds its way to the number 1 spot among the best project management tools, let's take a brief detour to the basics. What actually is project management software and what characterizes an excellent project management tool? πŸ‘‡

‍

What is project management software?

Project management software is like the equipment in a director's hands. The software allows you and your team to plan, organize and track the script draft of a project from the first sketch to the last scene. The project management tool ensures that every scene is shot on time to meet the premiere date. All project information flows together in the project management software, facilitating the exchange of information and increasing the productivity of the entire team.

The simple setup of awork is a decisive advantage compared to ClickUp

‍

🚨 Spoiler:

The Project Management Olympics show that ClickUp is the wrong tool for teams that place great value on functionality and UX. Its complexity makes it too time-consuming and tricky for many users to even get to grips with the tool. In addition, the information on data protection at ClickUp is very vague.Β 

awork, on the other hand, offers a strong range of features in combination with an intuitive and simple user interface that also looks nice. Here you get exactly what ClickUp lacks: a wide range of features PLUS simple user-friendliness. In addition, awork takes data protection very seriously: it is developed and hosted in Germany, guarantees the highest level of data security, is GDPR-compliant and fulfills ISO 27001.
