I’m in the process of helping select a project management tool for a company I’m working with. There are a lot of options out there, so we’ve been setting up new accounts on each one and seeing how they work. This has had the effect of totally fragmenting our work, but once we decide, I think it’s going to help us a lot. Here are our requirements:

- Useful for executive types as well as designers and engineers;
- Visualization of tasks and schedules, preferably a Gantt chart;
- Bloggy, at-a-glance commenting ability.
Even with so many solutions available, none of them seem to be exactly what we want. So, in case there is anyone else in our boat, here’s a list of the ones we’re auditing, in no particular order:
I’ll write about my impressions of each one in a future post. Right now, I feel like we need a collaboration tool to use in order to help us settle on a collaboration tool.
