Very robust tool with lots of features that are very easy to use, unlike many other PM tools we've previously used. Extremely simple, yet it has lots of great options that streamline our projects perfectly.

Caveman ready interface. It's like an apple product; crack it open and go.

The new update did not have anything that we needed and essentially changed the entire way the system functioned. After the 2015 update, our team had to switch service because Active Collab no longer worked the way we needed it to.

Slow to load. Frozen development because they start from scratch for each new version. Lack of native integrations because developers have to develop new integration for each new version. I wish it had some kind of webform data entry onboarding feature...
