Within a fairly crowded market of online project management applications, Planzone offers a similar product but with solid performance – especially for those of us who didn’t get a degree in project management.
Though Planzone uses lofty words to describe its intentions – “A set of intuitive tools, designed for optimizing collaboration on projects involving both internal and external resources” – the site is actually quite simple to use. It helps team members organize a project by setting to-do lists, schedules, document sharing, and other team-oriented features. To this end, the site is not nearly as useful for a single-person business but can be used to set personal to-do lists and goals.
Most impressive in Planzone’s set of tools is the interactive planning tool which develops those normally complex, but useful Gantt-style charts with relative ease. To get you rolling quickly, Planzone also offers a host of starter project templates.
