ProofHub is a solution developed to facilitate simple and effective project management for organizations that may have started out using multiple applications, websites, and communications programs to keep their teams organized. As an example of how ProofHub has helped a business to maintain a high level of organization, a Florida based chain of book stores use ProofHub to track book sales and to coordinate ordering efforts amongst their various operations.
There are a vast number of project management applications out there, both in web based and standard desktop application form. ProofHub aims to simplify the process by providing a platform independent solution which allows users to communicate amongst their team members and coordinate efforts. It contains all the features found in standard project management applications, but delivers them in a format that is easy to use, and most importantly, centralized.
The main page of ProofHub is intended to get new users to sign up, so it’s basically designed as such, the site layout from a non-account member is easy to navigate, but rife with spelling and grammatical errors, specifically, the “How they use it?” page which is located by clicking “Buzz” in the main toolbar. The short descriptions of how various organizations use their software seem a bit too general, and indeed the comments listed below said article seem a bit off, to say the least. Regardless, the client side of the website is very well done, efficiently laid out, and definitely offers the features that they boast on the homepage, so they clearly have their ducks in a row in that respect, which is what is really important.
In order to register, click on the Pricing/Sign Up tab at the top of the page. This takes users to their pricing plan explanation. Simply select the appropriate plan for the group or organization. At this point, the user is prompted to enter a first and last name, email and company name, country, time zone, username and desired password with confirmation. After entering these items, the user can choose their desired ProofHub account address. They are then required to agree to the terms of service, and finally, submit a request by clicking “Create my ProofHub Account”. The user will receive a verification email in short order. From this point on, the user can access their ProofHub account by logging into the account address they provided.
ProofHub offers various account plans. A basic plan runs about $25 a month, the standard plan is around $50, and the premium plan, intended for large organizations goes for around $100 per month. The primary difference between the different levels of membership are the number of projects allowed per account, starting at 10 for the basic account, and ending at 90 projects for the premium membership. All of the paid plans include support for unlimited users, access to their proofing tool, and time tracking functionality. Also available is their free service which is intended for any group which wishes to track only a single project. The free account allows unlimited users and access to their proofing tool; however the sizes of the files used in the project are limited.
ProofHub should appeal to project managers in all business sectors. It is flexible enough to be used for nearly any imaginable application, and provides users with the centralization and ease of implementation that will especially appeal to organizations that work in a decentralized manner, or have offices or buildings scattered around the nation or the world.
