I evaluated and ran a trial of this software a few years ago and it basically was a good tool for large IT shops that need to keep track of all their projects in one central repository.

Since Citrix bought it, it's been getting even better! Now it has built in video conferencing (even free in the free Podio accounts). I also love all the pre-built packages you can "install" by just clicking to install them. Makes this tool very flexible...
