Top 3 Software Alternatives to Jira

JIRA prides itself on providing their customers, for 12 years now, with the utmost user-friendly program. Their goal is to continue providing their users with a product that is at the highest level of integrity and quality. Oh but wait! There’s a flip side – not everyone is a happy with Jira. To be frank, Jira frustrates some people because it doesn’t have all of the bare necessities as most Jira alternatives do. JIRA does NOT have the following features:

  • Time Tracking – Cost Tracking – Expense Tracking
  • Gantt Chart with all Dependencies – Social Communication
  • Risk Management – Critical Path Management

A project management solution can be really complex, but it doesn’t have to be that way. While I think the above 3 options are the closest potential alternatives to Smartsheet, there are several other products that, depending on your needs, may also deserve to make your PM software shortlist. Know any other good Smartsheet alternatives or competitors?
