ProjectLibre Alternative

Using Bitrix24 as a free ProjectLibre alternative

ProjectLibre is a software company that offers desktop and cloud solutions for effective project management. The initial aim of the developer was to create an affordable alternative to Microsoft Project. It operates under a Common Public Attribution License and is acknowledged as free software by the Free Software Foundation. The main features of the ProjectLibre platform include Gantt and WBS/RBS charts, a PERT graph, resource pools for several projects, earned-value costing, and histograms. The software supports Microsoft Project files and can be run on various operating systems.

In many ways ProjectLibre resembles MS Project as it has a similar approach to building a project plan. The program creates a task list or breakdown structure, sets durations, and assigns resources.

As probably any free program, the system is not without flaws. According to ProjectLibre reviews, the interface is easy to use once you get the hang of it, but it looks somewhat outdated. The platform does not provide a mobile application, which is not convenient if you need to manage projects on the go.

ProjectLibre Cloud is more suitable for team solutions and managing multiple projects. However, this version requires paying a monthly fee.

If you are in search of an affordable ProjectLibre alternative, Bitrix24 is a platform you may want to consider. The company provides cloud options and self-hosted software for on-premise installation. The Bitrix24 mobile app allows you to create and assign tasks, set deadlines, control work in progress, share files, make video calls, and receive work reports.
