SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PBworks, a leading provider of online team collaboration solutions for business and education, today announced PBworks Project Hub, free enterprise-grade project management software. Project Hub (http://www.getprojecthub.com), based on the PBworks collaboration suite, goes beyond simple task management and to-do lists to incorporate content collaboration, social software, and enterprise integration capabilities.
Project Hub gives users everything they need to collaborate on a project in a single, secure online space:
* Assemble project team members on a single platform, including customers, partners, and vendors, complete with detailed social profiles
* Store, discuss, search, and share text, documents, images, and video
* Assign and track deadlines and deliverables
* Stay current on task progress with automated notifications and activity streams
* View a visual, single-screen summary of your project
In comparison to the popular project management tool Basecamp, Project Hub offers a truly free option that doesn't impose a time-limited trial. Project Hub also provides greater content capabilities, especially when working with Microsoft Office documents, and greater customizability and branding for working with clients and customers.
And unlike Basecamp, which is aimed at small to medium-sized businesses, Project Hub draws on PBworks' enterprise heritage to offer more organization, comprehensive security and access control, and integration with existing systems like Active Directory.
"Project management is one of our most popular use cases," said Jim Groff, CEO of PBworks. "Creating a new product to meet the demand was a logical step."
"I can't imagine managing a team-based project without the kind of online collaboration tools in Project Hub," said Alex Seropian, the CEO of Industrial Toys and founder of Halo developer Bungie.
Customers can also upgrade from Project Hub to the entire PBworks suite, which supports intranets, extranets, and knowledge bases, in addition to project management.
Pricing and Availability
Project Hub is available immediately. A free Project Hub account includes up to 20 users and 5 projects. Customers who need to accommodate more users and projects can upgrade for $20/user/month, or take advantage of our Starter Package, which costs $1,995/year to 20 users and unlimited projects.
