PBworks Releases Project Hub to Compete With Basecamp

SAN MATEO, Calif.–([1])–PBworks[2],
a leading provider of online team collaboration solutions for business
and education, today announced PBworks Project Hub, free
enterprise-grade project management software. Project Hub (http://www.getprojecthub.com[3]),
based on the PBworks collaboration suite, goes beyond simple task
management and to-do lists to incorporate content collaboration, social
software, and enterprise integration capabilities.

Project Hub gives users everything they need to collaborate on a project
in a single, secure online space:

* Assemble project team members on a single platform, including
customers, partners, and vendors, complete with detailed social profiles

* Store, discuss, search, and share text, documents, images, and video

* Assign and track deadlines and deliverables

* Stay current on task progress with automated notifications and
activity streams

* View a visual, single-screen summary of your project

In comparison to the popular project management tool Basecamp, Project
Hub offers a truly free option that doesn’t impose a time-limited trial.
Project Hub also provides greater content capabilities, especially when
working with Microsoft Office documents, and greater customizability and
branding for working with clients and customers.

And unlike Basecamp, which is aimed at small to medium-sized businesses,
Project Hub draws on PBworks’ enterprise heritage to offer more
organization, comprehensive security and access control, and integration
with existing systems like Active Directory.

“Project management is one of our most popular use cases,” said Jim
Groff, CEO of PBworks. “Creating a new product to meet the demand was a
logical step.”

“I can’t imagine managing a team-based project without the kind of
online collaboration tools in Project Hub,” said Alex Seropian, the CEO
of Industrial Toys and founder of Halo developer Bungie.

Customers can also upgrade from Project Hub to the entire PBworks suite,
which supports intranets, extranets, and knowledge bases, in addition to
project management.

Pricing and Availability

Project Hub is available immediately. A free Project Hub account
includes up to 20 users and 5 projects. Customers who need to
accommodate more users and projects can upgrade for $20/user/month, or
take advantage of our Starter Package, which costs $1,995/year to 20
users and unlimited projects.
