ClickUp is a Fresh Alternative to Trello

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ClickUp launched their flagship product, a project management platform which aims to combine the best elements from existing tools while expanding functionality with their own unique features.

Trello boards, according to CEO Zeb Evans, generally start out organized when users begin a project. However, he claims that over time most users find their boards lack structure and become unorganized and tedious to manage.

Evans says that while traditional Agile boards become convoluted, Click Up offers users board hierarchies to help manage a potentially unlimited number of tasks.

Many Trello users also cite problems with ordering their tasks and determining their priority, Click Up solves this by leveraging three different views which allow users to sort and order their tasks quickly.

He explained the system, saying, "With new [projects], you tend to start out with a relatively structured and logical framework for the tasks. But, in most cases, projects evolve and before long you don't know what goes where or how to find anything you need – the way tasks are structured in ClickUp you never have any trouble keeping things in their logical place."

Aside from task-organization, Click Up is placing a major focus on expanding what they see as a limiting and restrictive project management ecosystem with an innovative suite of nuanced features.

According to ClickUp, a major problem companies face with Trello is the need for extensive integrations to make it effective. Click Up, by contrast, claims to include all the features made possible with popular integrations – providing users with deep functionality that fits naturally into their workflow.

"No business can operate using only project management software. You need to combine all kinds of tools to get a business running online in an effective way. Our users are welcome to use existing solutions for these problems, but we made sure we offered everything one needs to get their [project] moving forward," said Evans.

The startup is currently offering a free migration for any users of competing project management solutions, including JIRA, Trello, and Asana. Click Up is now available with free and paid versions on their website at https://clickup.com
