Our mission

We develop open source software to change the way we collaborate

OpenProject is the leading free and open source project management software. As a web-based solution it gives all team members access to all project-related information from anywhere at any time. OpenProject supports your projects throughout the whole life cycle with any chosen project management methodology - agile, tradition or hybrid.

Key differentiators
