The new interactive network portal http://pm-software.org is a unique meeting point for project managers looking to evaluate and select project management software tools for their business needs.
Online PR News – 29-April-2010 – – Freising, Germany – In Time Management announced today the hallmark launch of their new website http://pm-software.org, a free project management software community. At last, project managers can now easily choose the best application for their business needs, with the help of an independent peer to peer network.
The website is a portal for providing and sharing information and resources on project management software. It enables registered users to submit product listings, screenshots, videos, reviews and articles, about any resource related to project management.
Through the interactive platform, pm-software.org combines the power of a networking community with the largest online directory of project management software. Now, there is no need to make expensive mistakes in choosing the wrong application. The new platform makes it easy to choose the right product, which helps save on costs and time, and reduces risks.
Pm-software.org houses over 500 applications, ranging from free desktop tools to enterprise-wide portfolio management systems. Any member can add tools to the directory. Once submitted, entries are reviewed by an editor and compared to the software tool manufacturer's own website descriptions. In case of discrepancies, editors adjust the information provided and further verify the application by testing against member’s claims.
The highlight of the community, User Reviews, represent members views on project management software tools on the market today. Free-form reviews on the pros and cons of each product allow for open critiques, and a star-rating system shows opinion scores based on a range of criteria. Not to mention, members are also alerted about new reviews, when they happen.
A second key feature includes an advanced search function of application listings in the website’s database. Members are able to easily target product specific features by selecting appropriate properties by category, vendor, software architecture, operating system and license type.
Pm-software.org does not influence the choice of tools or services that appears on the website. “The website is completely independent from any vendor and it is driven by the community. We have no advertising contracts with, nor do we have a business relationship with or are dependent on any tool manufacturers,” said Thomas Brandstetter, co-founder of In Time Management. “The portal finances itself exclusively through the use of Google advertising. Any hidden advertisements disguised as extremely one-sided representations in User Reviews are blocked and we ensure this independence, particularly through our Editor Reviews.”
