Since 2007, Teamwork has been building a product to make it easier for teams of all sizes to do their best work. Today, it boasts tens of thousands of paying customers, multiple products in its portfolio, and a customer base that loves what it does. It has a clear emphasis on making its software easy so almost anyone can get started within a few minutes. In addition to the core project management tools such as projects, tasks lists, file sharing, etc. It also adds a CRM, help desk, time tracking tools, document management, and so much more. Even though it has an intuitive UI, there are some areas that require more dedicated effort to master. It also doesn’t have the best historical reporting tools. If those aren’t deal-breakers then the evolving ecosystem, a large number of integration partners, and fair pricing make Teamwork worth taking a closer look at for your organization.
