OpenProject is the best open source ProjectLibre alternative

ProjectLibre is an open source project management software. It was initially a fork of OpenProj and has since gained in popularity with over six million downloads. ProjectLibre provides Gantt and PERT charts, as well as earned value costing and positions itself as a free alternative to MS Project. It is currently expanding its offer to include a cloud version. Let’s take a look at why OpenProject is the best ProjectLibre alternative.

What does OpenProject offer?

OpenProject and ProjectLibre both offer Gantt charts for efficient project planning. However, OpenProject also adds sophisticated project management features, such as release management through product roadmaps, meeting management and cost tracking. Compared to ProjectLibre, OpenProject is much stronger in usability and provides regular releases with updates and improvements. OpenProjects cloud edition is fully functional and accessible to everyone, whereas ProjectLibre is still in the beta testing phase. If you are looking to switch to an active open source project management software, OpenProject is the best choice.

Why is OpenProject better than ProjectLibre

If you are especially looking for an active and modern ProjectLibre alternative, take a look at the following advantages and learn why OpenProject is the best choice.

We are actively maintained

We provide up to four major releases a year and regular updates with bug fixes and improvements. An outdated software may lead to security breaches, therefore it is most essential that the security fixes are provided promptly.

No compromises in data protection

If you decide to go with the cloud edition, you can be sure that your data is secure. OpenProject has its headquarters in the EU, is GDPR compliant by default and stores all of the data in the EU. ProjectLibre is a US based company.

Everything from a single source

With OpenProject you can not only create and visualize timelines, but also track time and costs, include agile boards, manage documents and meetings or create forums to connect your teams and foster communities.
