Web-Based Project Management Tools: Mercury Grove Web Groups

Sunday, September 30, 2007 at 6:30pm by Site Administrator

Thanks to a comment dropped elsewhere on Bootstrapper, I came across a collaborative web application from Mercury Grove called Web Groups.

This tool pushes the concept of “web groups” and virtual teams and offers, amongst other features, a “blog-like discussion board with 2-way comments” that allows you to post text and images. Other features:

  • Unlimited users and groups.
  • Team and personal calendars and task lists.
  • Customizable modules and branding.
  • Email notification and alerts.
  • Contact management.
  • News feed reader.
  • Project tracking.
  • File sharing.

So it’s very similar to Basecamp and other web PM tools, but unlike Copper Project it does not have Gantt charts. However, it’s apparently completely free. After spending a half hour trying it out, I have to say it’s also very easy to use, invite team members, set up web groups, projects and tasklists.

So if you’re a bootstrapping entrepreneur that collaborates online, do check out Mercury Grove’s Web Groups.
