What's new in this version:

Easy installation. Clean and fast for a browser GUI. 5 users free license, 25 users for $450 - very reasonable. Includes many features I was looking for: Document management. Collaboration (chat, discussion, etc) Content Management Flexible + Snappy
Needs a few enhancements but I see that the developer is working on them.
I have been looking for a long time for a simple to use while powerful collaborative project management tool. I love this one. I manage different projects across departments (Programming, Marketing, Engineering, etc.) I needed something flexible, intuitive, and easy to use. If the system is too complicated I know I will have a hard time getting people to actually use it. Being web based allows easy access for outside contractors or telecommuters. Web based systems always turned me off because they typically seem very clunky. This one surprised me for being extremely fast and with an intuitive GUI. I love the fact that the developer used the tool itself (I.e. its public folder) to deliver information about the system in the form of Document folders, Wiki, Discussion Forum, etc. Go to the projectkaiser web site and look for the ?Project Kaiser Online? link. I do not typically write reviews but I liked this program so much that I want to make sure more people use it and support it.
