  1. I quickly assessed the capabilities of these systems, and I think this system could be useful to many companies. We also liked the free version http://www.teamwox.com and rich functionality and we would like to start working with him. Does anyone know how to export tasks from one system and import it into another?

  2. Great list! Another project management application I would recommend is Trakeze, http://www.trakeze.com/. The fully-integrated online application includes easy-to-use project planning, project tracking, task management, requirements management, time tracking, CRM, and collaboration tools.

  3. Thank you for the list. If I may add you can also check out this blog for more project management tools. Yeah, I love Manymoon and Basecamp these are two great software I used in my freelancing career. Again, thank you for a great sharing!
