Buying web-based project management software

The adoption rate of web-based project management software among small businesses has been steadily increasing the last few years. Businesses are embracing the software’s ability to connect remote teams and reduce IT budgets. In light of this trend, the folks at, an online project management technology consultancy, have put together a buyers report based on their interactions with hundreds of small businesses.

Key findings

  • A majority of prospective software buyers (58 percent) use a single method for project management.
  • Seventy percent of prospective buyers in our sample currently use manual methods for their project management needs.
  • Time tracking and task management are the top-requested software capabilities; each mentioned by 60 percent of buyers.
  • Sixty-four percent of buyers cite the need to improve organization and workflow efficiency as motivation for seeking Web-based PM software.

Sound familiar?

Top-Requested Web-Based PM Software Functionality

Are you one of the seventy percent still using manual methods? Researching and trialing new project management software can be time consuming. In our interactions with potential buyers, many face a similar conundrum: their needs are simple enough for manual methods, but, complex enough they require more workflow efficiency.

Choosing the right software

Fortunately, our web-based project management software, Intervals, is a great fit for companies who identify with the above findings. Here’s why:

  • Using a single method for project management
    Intervals is flexible enough to accommodate different project management methods without pigeonholing you into just one.
