What is MS Project?

MS Project

MS Project is designed to track time and resources within a project. The tool is known for such typical still useful features as Gantt charts, Kanban boards, and auto-estimated budget.

What are the differences between RedmineUP and MS Project?

User-friendly interface


RedmineUP is well-known for its handy interface, in the finest tradition of “simpler is better”. It wonderfully combines a minimalistic structure and a great variety of useful functions. It is really easy to grasp the idea of how RedmineUP’s framework is built, that’s why you are able to immediately start managing your projects

MS Project

Although MS Project has a loyal fanbase all over the world, the software has an uneasy learning curve for beginners. So, it takes time to get used to MS Project’s interface and operate its complex UX like a pro, and we all know one simple truth: time is money…

Cost-efficient business solution


There is no need to hold several memberships if one service covers them all. With a single subscription, RedmineUP’s clients get a wide range of powerful tools to track each project stage. Plus, data migration from other platforms performed by IT experts – with zero cost for your business

MS Project

If your finances are quite limited, MS Project may be a bit tricky to pay for. The Microsoft product is available as an on-premises application or a cloud-based one. In the first case, users had better consider some cost constraints as each license is paid individually. In the second case, they should be prepared for compatibility issues associated with two solutions mismatches

Detailed project documentation


Is there anything more valuable than time and resources in project management? RedmineUP has developed an accurate and robust accounting system with the Reporter plugin. It includes all the details collected from one or more tasks, and all of this is in PDF!

MS Project

Although reports are available in MS Project, it is quite troublesome to create them. They also require much time, since there is no real-time synchronization with project dashboard updates. Moreover, the files are saved in a specific format, so it is not so easy to share them with users who have another program

Personal approach


In our fast-changing world, intelligent delegation is not a luxury, but a necessity. With RedmineUP Cloud, you will no longer waste time on fixing bugs or monitoring updates. Instead, you will get an individual 24/7 working Customer Success Manager. A win-win solution, isn’t it?

MS Project

Microsoft is a huge corporation with tens of software products and millions of users. No wonder, it is customer support that suffers first. MS Project offers customers training courses, forums, and additional learning resources. Still, do not count on fast problem solutions in case of emergency
