What customers say about 5pm

It's easy to use, simple and very effective. The design is beautiful and practical. I like the features, the simplicity and the quick responses I get from the support crew.
– Mario - vulto.com (Brazil)
I like 5pm because of its simplicity. It is obvious that you all put alot of thought into this. The hierarchy, layout of content is amazing and extremely simple with the appropriate training. It's highly organized. The design of the site is great, which increases legibility. I like the side-by-side window action. It simply works.

It's simple enough that even the grouchiest of employees will use it.

simple, smart, quick.
– David-Andrew B. (Netherlands)
Without 5pm I would still be struggling and mired in work up to my neck.

Uses the correct "issues centric" approach for tracking open issues and tasks. Whoever architected the design from the top level got it right.

Email integration is also a Godsend. In this day and age, emails often become part of the problem, not the solution because of the shear volume.

Works with all Internet browsers on multiple platforms. I use Windows and Linux on a daily basis and use Mozilla Firefox as my main browser.

Fast for a web based application. I must say I am impressed by its speed, response.

– Nigel A. - augermax.com (Canada)
I'm able to see lots of projects related to one overall project at the same time. In the past, I have had to rifle through sheets of paper with project task lists to check progress. So, 5pm works because it creates one place to view multiple projects.
– Dawn K. - Nampa Public Library, nampalibrary.org (USA)
It's a great way to manage a bunch of people spread all over the country.
– Mignon F. (USA)

Before 5pm we had a few projects and I could just manage these using a spreadsheet. However our business expanded and our projects increased till I could not manage them anymore. Deadlines started creeping and our resources were getting heavily mismanaged.

Then we found 5pm. After trialling every online collaborative project management tool I could find I settled on 5pm. It was simple to use it had all the main features that I needed to manage small to medium projects and it was accessible from anywhere since it's all cloud based. Any problems I encountered was met with swift and helpful support.

Now I can easily manage upwards of a dozen projects on my own with the ease and breeze of a seasoned veteran. Without 5pm I would still be struggling and mired in work up to my neck. My favorite feature is the timeline (Gantt chart). Not only does it allow me a holistic view at one glance but I can easily reschedule my tasks with a click of the mouse!

Web based - clean, responsive interface.

Easier than Basecamp to get an project overview and progress at a glance.

– Andrew E. - shavers.co.uk (UK)

All my project emails are now in one place for easy viewing.

I can clone projects between different users without recreating a new task. Right panel is very easy to use with info/activity/files in one place, no opening and closing web windows.

– Lisa (USA)

I can access it anywhere...
I can go around the IT department of my org because there is no software req'd.
It nags me with daily emails to tell me how much I'm not getting done.

– Colin C. - The Presbyterian Church in Canada, presbyterian.ca (Canada)
It allows me to be able to communicate with co-workers and cuts exchange files that we are working on.
– Adam O. - The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, saic.edu (USA)
It is WAY Simpler and faster to work with than "@task". (we aborted that slow beast last year).
It is quicker than most other web-based systems we tested.
It behaves more like a desktop app than a web-app (ie right click menus, quick response time).
– Rick W. - woodlanddirect.com (USA)
It's more intuitive than Basecamp and I like the format of the emails that it sends every day.

it is a simple format that everyone at work can understand without needing loads of training and explanation.
–  Michael P. (England) 

It got a great interface, a love the setup with left and right window. It's faster to work with than fex Harvest. Harvest is more micromanagement. I love the fact I can make a task, and then complete it in % and with timetracking.

Great overview. "My stuff" is great. Timeline is great. Time Report is great...

And I can have the interface in Swedish! Great work and support!
