OpenProject as Trello alternative
Trello is a hugely popular, very intuitive project management and issue tracking software with millions of users worldwide. Its easy-to-use Kanban-style approach separates it from many other tools. Let’s take a look at why OpenProject is the best Trello alternative.
OpenProject and Trello both offer classical task management features. However, OpenProject also allows release management through product roadmaps. Additionally, OpenProject makes communication easy: You can organize meetings directly within OpenProject and manage forums.
Unfortunately Trello’s advantages (simplicity, Kanban view) make often make it difficult to use in business environments. Trello lacks many enterprise project management features, such as Gantt charts, time and cost tracking and the fact that there is no self-hosted version of Trello. Trello also does not support meeting organization. OpenProject on the other hand provides self-hosting through the Enterprise Edition. Software development companies will also miss an integrated source control management system in Trello which is helpful to easily coordinate development progress.
