OpenProject as ProjectLibre alternative

ProjectLibre is an open source project management software which is a fork of OpenProj (which hasn’t been updated since 2008). ProjectLibre provides Gantt and PERT charts, as well as Earned value costing and positions itself as a free alternative to MS Project. With over a million downloads ProjectLibre is quite popular. Let’s take a look at why OpenProject is the best ProjectLibre alternative.

OpenProject and ProjectLibre both offer Gantt charts for efficient project planning. However, OpenProject provides many additional project management options and also allows release management through product roadmaps.

ProjectLibre has an outdated interface, lacks support and misses critical project management features. For instance it does not support meeting organization, coordination in tasks or time and costs logging. If you look for an alternative to ProjectLibre available in the cloud and as self-hosted software for on-premise deployments take a look at the following table and learn why OpenProject is the best ProjectLibre alternative:
