Pros: Our agency has been through just about every other project management platform there is. Seriously, mention one, and we have used or at the very least demoed it. The ones that we liked were crazy expensive, and the ones that were more reasonably price were only a little better than excel. OrangeScrum has a delightful blend of affordability and features.

I love the dashboards and views that are available. The Kanban view makes it easy for our teams to coordinate. I can take the resource manager and better coordinate the timelines/deadlines for our clients.

One unique feature that I have come to love is the "Daily Catchup" which allows me to get an automated summary of everything that was accomplished by my staff during the day. We are not a large company, but sometimes managing team and daily tasks can get a little unwieldy.

Cons: The biggest issue that I am having with the platform is the billable time. OrangeScrum allows you to set certain tasks to "billable". It's great but in order to create an invoice, you need to access each "project" individually instead of a global view of all billable items. If we could get that straightened out, I think it would be a huge improvement!

Pros: OrangeScrum simplifies your project management life: it makes easy to handle all aspects of your projects. You can easily manage tasks, create a direct communication between team members, assign resources and tasks to a particular person and keep track of your expenses. It combines project management, task management and collaboration in a unique Open Source platform giving you total control over your projects.

- Open source.
- Resource planning and team member reminders via daily updates
- Easy to use
- Easy to custom
- Available in 3 options: Community, Cloud and Enterprise
- Inexpensive

Cons: Many things are paid, as a open source software I have expected some of the good features can be free like invoice & Client Management.

- Portfolio management not available
- Have to pay onetime off for extra features
- Facing database connection error so many time
- Sending email to the admin not creating task or ticket (only adding email reply into the same task)

Pros: Orange Scrum is very versatile, its interface is simple
to use and allows creating a list of tasks in order to
notify a work team the progress of the development of the
project, which is advantageous since it integrates the
work of the team.
It has a complete set of manuals for users, as a support for the use of this software.

Cons: The use of this tool is extremely easy and its elements meet the
standards in planning and project management, disadvantage as such
to the interface I can not find, however it would be great if the
trial version could be extended a little more.

Pros: Orange scrum includes an all in one screen covering all modules from project planning to visual project presentation. It is also very simply to understand and use.

Cons: It is harware specific in that it only coveres mac, android, iphone and windows. There is no local coverage for linux users apart from the web-based application which not every user will prefer.

Overall: Orange SCRUM is the best solution for project collaboration within a team.

Pros: I like that orangescrum has a lot of customization and has good manageability. Our instance is installed on a dedicated sever on our environment which gives us a lot of control over access

Cons: I dislike that it feels like the product feels out of date compared to other solutions. Also, you have to set this product whereas a lot of other similar products work right away without any setup time

Pros: OrangeScrum has all necessary features for project control, is user friendly, easy to use and free source. So you can use it as self-hosed free version with the basic features or as a cloud solution. In both ways you can upgrade the system with a lot of extra premium features for your daily work. The customer support team is great and experienced.

Cons: A lot of features are still available as pro elements / add-ons. They are not really expensive, but if you need some of them - you costs can grow up rapidly. The add-on combos/bundles are not free to choice what whould be nice for the customer. If you are using the Cloud solution the user arelimited to 10 in the smallest package and can also grow up fast. So the price model was not so clear for me

Really good opens source software. It helps organizing projects.

Pros: Easy to use, yet full of functionality. Different ways to view projects and tasks. Mail notifications. Project reports.

Cons: Most of the functionality uses ajax. Therefore sometimes you have to refresh the page to get the updated data.
It doesn't have good support for other languages (for example task titles or descriptions are converted)
Time spent on project can only be saved as fraction of base 10.

Pros: Ease of use, very good customer service and an affordable price.
We are using Orange Scrum for an year after a deep research for a good and affordable online project management tool and we are sure now that we chose the right one.

Cons: The interface design is sometimes not as eye-catchy as in other similar but more expensive online project managers.

Very robust and simple to use. Has a lot of features right out of the box.

Pros: OS is very easy and powerful Project and Task management tool used regularly and strictly at my office, it helps to bring workflow in a streamline, hassle-free management in regards to time spent on each tasks and followups with team is easy now.

Overall: Time & task management, easy identification on Bug tasks or any dependencies, Resource Utilisation one of the best category to click on to export every day work of all users.

It assists in time management to ensure projects are completed in timely fashion.
It simplifies human resource tasks such as time sheets, attendance and leaves.

Cons: The software has a lot of unresolved bugs, Which makes it very difficult to setup correctly and this is also reflected during system usage where the system may crush and causes loss of useful data.

Pros: I was very impressed with the ease of use of its interface and all its features to manage projects.
It is a platform that can be customized to our needs.
It maintains a technical support that offers assistance to any requirement.
A very important fact for those who manage their projects using other platforms, is that it offers a specialized service in migrating data from their projects to OrangeScrum.

Cons: The software seemed quite stable, flexible in its use, but they have many more benefits that are only applicable to your project as long as you acquire the payment license, of which there is a wide variety at affordable prices and according to the importance and complexity of this tool.

Pros: OrangeScrum is a software that has all the necessary features for project control softwares.

I like that the registration is very simple, the price is easy to understand and perhaps for teams of many people can reduce the usual cost of this type of software.

It includes time log, generation of invoices, control of tasks, assignment of responsible, management of the status of each task within the project. It has a Gant view and another Kanban view.

Cons: What I do not like is that at the design level it does not look modern and maybe it can improve in that sense; however, it works as it should.

Another thing that I do not like is in the subject of the invoice, I can not change the location of the elements of the invoice to adapt it to my current invoice scheme.

Similarly, the invoices are not intended for a public outside the United States, for example, for the Latin American market it is necessary to include fields within the invoice that do not exist in this application.

Overall: It allows me to take control of my development projects. We are currently evaluating it and I think it can be an option against the popular Atlassian Jira.

I think that to achieve a significant cost savings, it should be used in groups of 10 or more users.

Simple and easy to use project management tools. Really love the quick and responsive support!

Pros: Simplicity and easy to use. Has many add-ons and very modular. The people behind this product support are excellent, they provide quick responses to problems I had before. For me this product is best value for money to spend on project management tools.

Cons: Its too bad the application written in PHP. There is no option to personalize themes through configuration panel. I also cannot found a documentation to write an add-on.

Overall: I can handle and monitor the progress of my projects through websites and mobile devices.

Cons: Wow this web application is horrible under the hood. Terrible documentation, difficult to safely install and customize, even worse security and super buggy. Plus their website and business approach is like a late night infomercial... Buy buy buy... Now now now!

Nothing about this project inspires trust for professionals looking for a good project manager tool.

Pros: Free, works

Cons: gantt charts require paid module, security poor, inflexible install (or poor documentation).

Overall: Installing other than the default (dedicated site) is tricky - I never got a sub_folder path install to work. The default security is scary - they suggest making the webroot directory world writable (not necessary - just set the group to www-data and group writable).

The cool add-ons are never free. Gantt etc are another $ - depending. However, it is smooth and easy to use once installed and provides a nice free self-hosted project manager for simple projects.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use a default (site specific) setup.
