Capterra, an online service that connects buyers and sellers of business software, published its latest infographic today, ranking the Top 20 Most Popular Project Management Software Solutions. This is the first in Capterra's top 20 series to cover the project management software industry, with Microsoft Project, Atlassian JIRA, and Podio topping the list.
Project Management Software encompasses a wide variety of project management functions within many different industries. Some popular features include time tracking, project workflow, task management, and collaboration management.
"Project management is not just for the project managers anymore," said Capterra President and CEO, Michael Ortner. "Every employee probably does some aspect of it, whether it's time tracking or budgeting or scheduling, and project management software can help organize all of those efforts into one simple tool."
The rankings are based on a popularity index created by Capterra, based on the number of customers, number of users, and social presence scores. Previous infographics include Learning Management Systems, Customer Relationship Management, Contract Management, and Electronic Health Records. The rankings are updated a few times a year to keep the data current and reflect changing trends within the industries
"We were so excited to research this software industry, and couldn¿t be more pleased with the results," said Ortner. "This new infographic will be a perfect starting point for businesses looking for project management software, with a great overview of what¿s available to them in the field."
