  • Scheduling
  • Project Portfolio Management
  • Resource Management
  • Document Management
  • Web-based, and
  • License/Provider

Our host, Joel on Software, sells FogBugz which I have used for that purpose. It can track tasks, not just bugs.


As for web application alternative: We've been using Manymoon for medium-complex projects For small projects works very well Freedacamp

First one is quite good, includes PM and simple CRM in one place. Now they are a part of SalesForce, but anyway it is worth to try Second one is pretty simple, comfy and FREE! Allows to add task in a second, have discussions, file storage, time tracking, invoicing. We love it for its simplicity!

I would recommend you Jira + Greenhopper plugging http://www.atlassian.com/software/greenhopper . You can create tasks, subtasks, estimations ...etc. Also, it has a section when you can create graphs an reports of any kind.
