5pm Project Management on Time

  • Sharebar

5pm Project Management5pm’s whole theme is centered around getting more things done – by 5pm (hence the name). Clever, and their website’s marketing nicely continues this theme. It’s one of the more polished sites of a project management software company out there.

5pm Project Management

According to the 5PM Website:

5pm can be your central location for project and task management, team collaboration, time tracking, reporting and more…

5pm Project Management Features:

There are a TON of features in 5pm, and as such it really gives other Online Project Management Software a run for their money (see Basecamp). Here’s a short list of what I found to be the BEST features (some aren’t available on many other project mangement applications):

  • Complete 2-Way Email Integration – Send/Receive messages, via email, that are logged to the system. Although many other systems do this, I like that they allow task/to-do creation through emails as well!
  • Timeline – 5pm offers a very sweet, intuitive, Timeline. This is something that MANY project management systems are lacking, this is very helpful for tracking the progress of multiple to-dos and tasks across the entire lifetime of a project.

5pm Project Management Interface:

I want to evaluate this on two levels, first the website, then the software. The website: the 5pm website is a bit cluttered, although it does match the look and feel of the program, and connotes a sense of playfulness, as does their copy and the rest of the branding (THEY EVEN OFFER A FREE GAME TO KILL TIME!). However clever, in my personal opinion the website is TOO unprofessional, although well done, and very cluttered making it hard at best, and confusing at worst, to evaluate the software.

The software continues the theme of the website, with bright colors, beveled edges, and intense graphics. Again, production value is high, but in my personal opinion it misses the mark. An unconventional side-tab menu at the left hand side helps you navigate through the major sections.

Pricing for 5pm is somewhat inline with other online package and SAAS project management software, however, at the high end of the packages the pricing seems to get skewed somewhat.
