We’re setting up here as a little software development company. Pretty simple stuff (looks like a lot of Ruby on Rails stuff). And we need a little bit of advice from you peeps.
Essentially, which two software packages should we be using? Need to be free and simple.
1) Scheduling and project management. What’s the list of tasks, who owns which, how far along is it etc etc etc.
2) Billing software. I have in mind something like legal software. You know, solicitors punch in which client they’ve been working for each 6 minutes? For us, hourly would be fine. But so we can track which hours who has been working on what.
And as a maybe, collaboration software. This might be already included in project management stuff. But a bit like Yammer maybe, group messages and all that.
