Finding project management solutions is a must for any business, no matter how small. However, expensive database-intensive programs might not be right for every business. They either might consumer too many resources, or they might be far too expensive to fit your budget.
Fortunately, there are many project management applications that are cloud-based, which means that they will use up fewer resources and are usually less expensive. Here are a few cloud-based project management applications you might consider to fit your business needs:
