Software Description:

Users can also select business 'apps' from an online app store or build their own according to project needs.
With Podio users can organize and connect everything they work with. Manage projects, customers, all in a structured work environment.

Software Description:

This software consists of four base modules, which are available in each package—as well as the free version. The modules included in Zoho Projects are Tasks and Milestones, Documents, Project Calendars, and Meetings and Forums.
It lets the people in the project communicate easily, discuss ideas and stay updated with the latest developments.
