Blog — 25 Free Project Management Tools to Try Today

What Makes Great Project Management Software?

  • Cloud-Based: Long gone are the days of downloading giant, CPU-hogging programs to your team members’ desktop computers. While many of these free project management tools offer downloadable versions, they’re all accessible in the cloud, making your workflows faster and more lightweight.
  • Project Management Focus: For this list, we’ve skipped standard business tools that include project management tools as a secondary feature. The apps here revolve solely around helping your team’s productivity and collaboration.
  • Forever Free: Not just free for 14 days, 30 days or some other trial period. Here, we’ve focused on apps that include a “forever free” version as of this writing (though it’s worth noting that many free plans come with limitations on functionality, the number of user seats included, etc.).
