We are in the process of reviewing some of our project management processes here at Alagad in search (as always) of ways to better manage and track projects. Currently, we use a combination of Trac sites, SVN repositories, and a handful of other tools for our projects, but I have often found this collection of individual tools can be burdensome and I don’t have a great love for Trac as it is not the most flexible system in the world.
So, here is the question – how do you manage projects? Are there any tools that you use for tracking projects … milestones, tasks, bugs, time, etc? Do your clients have access to these tools? What about solutions like BaseCamp? Is a hosted solution better than a tool or set of tools that you have to then download and maintain? Do you have a favorite tool or tool set? If so, I would love to hear about it. If not, what are some things that the currently available tools missing?
