The Microsoft Project Alternative
If you need help tracking and understanding your time, Intervals is the right tool. Intervals was built to track every minute of time spent on every task, so you can worry less about getting paid and focus more on your priorities and getting work done.
How are Intervals and Microsoft Project similar?
Both solutions have tasks, milestones and Gantt charts, but comparing Microsoft Project to Intervals is difficult because they are so different. It is easier to compare consumer needs. Microsoft Project is best when planning a massive engineering project, with 150 people — especially when project and task dates have to shift if one task takes too long. Intervals is better suited for a small business focused on getting things done with less than 20 people, using detailed task management and time tracking tools.
How is Intervals Different?
More Flexible Task Management
Our flexible task management platform is more Agile friendly than the traditional Waterfall features of Microsoft Project. With Intervals, tasks can represent bugs, to dos, tickets, stories, or just plain tasks. And, only Intervals records a meticulous history of every time entry and status update on each task, so you can stay focused on the big stuff while still keeping track of the details. Never again wonder what work has already been done, or what you should be working on next.
Any project management platform, especially Microsoft Project, is going to have its learning curves. But, only Intervals provides free onboarding and one-on-one demos to get your team up to speed as fast as possible. Take advantage of our support team and fast response times to quickly find out if Intervals is the right fit for you. And if it’s not, we’ll be the first to tell you.
Increased Profitability for Small Businesses
Intervals was built for small teams facing the unique challenges of executing work and accounting for their time. Easy-to-use timers track the time for you as you work through tasks, and powerful reports show you exactly where it's going. Small businesses using Intervals have seen up to a 30% increase in billable time, without having to work more. Unlike Microsoft Project, Intervals has seamlessly integrated time tracking with task management from the beginning. Whether you are at your desk or on the go, Intervals empowers teams to execute and track their work from anywhere.
More Generous Document Storage
Each of our plans provides a generous amount of document storage, so you won’t have to worry about running out of space in the middle of a project. And, unlike Microsoft Project, document storage is included on all plans at no extra cost. Attach files to the most relevant project, milestone, or task, to provide your team the supporting documentation they need when they need it the most. A dedicated documents area makes it easy to locate and view documents for your entire account.
Less Restrictive Pricing
Our monthly plans give you room to grow. Each plan (except Lite) includes unlimited users, so you can throw as many resources as needed at each project without having to worry about incremental costs. Because when you are up against a deadline, your project management application is the last thing you want getting in the way. Our monthly plans are tiered based on the number of active projects being managed — completed projects don't count — so you can re-evaluate your needs and upgrade your account as your agency increases its capacity to take on more work.
