Okay, but how is Client Portal different from other project management software?
Great question! For a start, Client Portal isn't really project management software at all. Let me explain...
A typical workflow looks something like this:
- GoogleDocs for working on content or collaborative documents
- Dropbox for keeping files in sync
- HelloSign for signing and storing contracts
- Nusii for proposals
- Invision for website prototypes
- BitBucket for filing bugs
- Trello for feature requests
- Slack for communication
- ...and so on.
Finding project management software that does all these things well (and the key word here is well) is virtually impossible. Trello is the best for lists, GoogleDocs wins when it comes to collaborating on documents. Like it or not, Slack is where everyone is at when it comes to team chatter.
Why would you want a complex project management tool that tries to do all these things, but just doesn’t do them as well? Not only that, clients resent having to use it due to the steep learning curve, and end up resorting back to good old fashioned email.
Then, you’re stuck paying $99/month for something that only you’re using. And you end up spending so much wasted time syphoning every document back into your project management software.
What a pain.
That, in a nutshell, is why I made Client Portal. Client Portal is a beautiful dashboard (that lives on your website) to keep all your project's assets in one place. You can work how you choose, with the tools that you already love and give your clients a great experience along the way.
Client Portal bridges the gap between the professional "Hey, this person has done this before" feel for your clients, and not being restricted by all-in-one (and often subpar) tools.
