The days when your project data was scattered across different email messages and accounts; instant messenger chat transcripts; spreadsheets and other documents are gone. Now you can bring order to the chaos and have a central place where you can organize and manage all of your projects.
Having all project data in one, centralized system is valuable to every project manager and every team:
Project collaboration works only if you have everyone involved. Gather your team to work together, discuss projects and tasks, exchange files and more. Plus, include clients, contractors, suppliers and everyone else you are working with, while still having full control over what they can see and do.
Everyone involved in a project has different needs. Clients typically want a brief overview of their project. Managers need tools to help them monitor progress across multiple projects and teams. Employees want simple lists of their tasks, access to reminders and a schedule they can easily follow. Which is why activeCollab allows users to personalize and configure their own home screens and optimize them for their needs.
Having a large number of projects and people involved in them can create confusion. This is why with activeCollab you can organize and manage all of your projects easily. Additionally, each project can have a client associated with it.
activeCollab gives you a great number of tools that let you work efficiently on your projects. With activeCollab you'll get a bird's-eye view on all of them, as well as the option to focus on individual tasks that your team is working on.
Anyone who works with a source code knows how important version control is. We feel that a source code should not sit in isolation, which is why activeCollab offers a way to connect your source repositories with projects and have information about your code imported right into your project collaboration system.
activeCollab has a simple interface that clients (or potential clients) can use to submit project requests. You and your colleagues can then easily review and reply to requests, or ask for more information as necessary. Then, after you agree on terms, you can send a quote to the client or create a new project right from their request.
Use activeCollab to prepare professionally looking quotes and send them to your potential clients. Each quote can be updated and discussed, until your clients agree to the terms offered or reject them. All quoted projects can then be easily marked as 'Won' or 'Lost'.
activeCollab allows you to track time that you and your team spend working on a project, as well as project expenses. You can also set time estimates for tasks and compare actual time spent against your estimate. In this way, estimates will highlight problems at an early stage, allowing you to address them before they get out of control.
The great thing about time and expense tracking is, not only can it tell you how your resources are being spent, but also whether you are performing within the budget for any particular project. With activeCollab you can use this information to your advantage by monitoring progress and spotting problems early on, before they escalate and get out of hand.
Being able to filter time records and expenses is important when you want to see how time and money is being spent (as well as being able to properly bill your clients!). Fortunately, activeCollab makes this task easy for you with its powerful time and expenses filter.
When you manage projects and track time using activeCollab, you already have all the information that's needed for a quick and easy invoice creation: client contact information and all project related expenses. Using this information, activeCollab can automatically create invoices and save you time.
Now that you did a great job for your client, it's time to impress them again by sending a stunning, professional looking invoice. Invoices generated by activeCollab look great on every platform, print well and fit in standard window envelopes.
Cash flow is important for every business, and the best way to get paid quicker is to offer an easy way for your clients to pay you. Connect activeCollab to your PayPal, Authorize.net, Stripe, or Braintree account and it will generate a link that your clients can use to pay you directly, right from within activeCollab.
activeCollab will help you keep track of all the important events on your projects and to stay in touch with your team. Configurable notification system will enable you to choose how exactly you wish to receive these information. You can opt for in-line notifications or good old email.
activeCollab has a very powerful email processing and automation tool. You can configure it to handle messages in a way that fits your business needs and create a new item right away.
