The project management tool we chose for our web design business

The tools you choose play a big part in running your business more efficiently. That of course what we all want — a more efficient business means more time for the fun stuff in life.

I had no idea how hard it would be to choose a project management system. There are SO many options. Hopefully this post saves you some time.

I believe the tool we settled on fits (most) web designers better than all of the others.

First, you should decide if you really need a full PM tool.

I think it becomes important around 3 staff. Before that, you can get away with a simple “task based” system like Asana or Trello.

We chose Teamwork

In the end, Teamwork simply had the capability to save us a lot more time, and enforce processes a little better than everything else. It was the one left standing when other tools were eliminated for one reason or another.

If just fit our business best because of the way it handles some critical parts, like:

  • Task templates
  • Sub tasks
  • Task dependencies
  • Time tracking
  • Board view
  • Integration with Teamwork Desk for client comms
  • Project summary/dashboard
  • Expenses

I break all of these down and show you exactly how we use them in our business over at the full post.
