I have been using this amazing project management tool lately and I thought I will share it with the rest of the community (it's free). The tools is web-based and it has the simplest interface I have come across. It can be used for scheduling and planning complex projects like software development, a large scale product launch, a new website, or it can be used to plan a wedding, and much much more.
The tool will also be of benefit to those who manage a pool of freelancers and each project can be integrated with Google Docs. I haven't used the tool to the fullest but it has helped me a great deal thus far. When you see the functions of the tool you will immediately see the benefits it can inject in your business.
The software is called Gantter and you can learn more about it @ Gantter - web-based project scheduling made easy
