OpenProject is the best open source Worklenz alternative for project management

Worklenz is simple open source project management software offering Kanban board project views, task assignment and deadlines, calendar and timeline views, as well as reporting. Let’s find out why OpenProject is the best open source alternative to Worklenz.

What does OpenProject offer?

Worklenz is presented as open source software. However, its free and open source edition has significant limitations, permitting only up to 5 members, 3 projects, and 1GB of storage. This makes it impractical for most teams and businesses. In contrast, OpenProject provides a genuinely free and highly customizable Community version, supporting unlimited users and projects. It is a more extensive project management tool with adaptable features, offering a robust and comprehensive system that caters to both small and large organizations seeking strong security and privacy.
