Intelligent project delivery software, like the AI in our homes and devices, is designed to save us time, make our lives easier and reduce the amount of manual effort and interaction required to perform simple, repetitive tasks.
When you add Augmented Intelligence into that mix, the right project management software also becomes an additional, highly analytical member of the team – one that everyone in the business can rely on to provide accurate, up-to-date data and insights in just a few clicks.
Everyday tools still commonly used for managing projects (and why you should stop using them)
“By the time you get around to updating a plan in MS Project, the project’s already moved on!”
These tools have served us well over the years, but they’re being left behind. So let’s look at what’s taking their place.

Why Sharktower is better value
Simple pricing and no add-on costs
First of all, we have just two simple pricing plans. One for small businesses, and one for medium to large businesses. Our company plan starts at £650 per month – the equivalent of £6.50 per person per month for a business with 100 users.
And where others providers charge extra for ‘add-on’ features, with Sharktower, you get access to every feature whatever you pay. Along with unlimited access to features, you get unlimited data too, and secure storage is a given, not a bonus.
Trials that last 30 days (or longer)
You can start managing tasks straight away in just about any project management platform, but an intelligent platform can’t show you it’s true value with a 14-day trial.
With Sharktower, you can opt for a 30-day trial or a longer ‘supported evaluation trial’.
If you already know what you want to get out of your project management software, our free 30-day trial lets you get started right away, with access to all of Sharktower’s features for up to 5 users.
If you’d like more support to determine where your business can benefit most from PM software, you can opt for our free supported evaluation trial, starting with a personalised demo and continuing with support from our customer success team.
In each case, it means you and others who’ll use Sharktower can put it through its paces properly for an agreed period of time.
Scale your plan up or down as required
If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that the world (and business) can be unpredictable. That’s why we’ll never lock you into a pricing plan you no longer need. If your requirements change, just get in touch and we can scale your plan down a level. And when you need to scale up again, we can adjust your plan back up just as quickly.
