A Gantt chart-based online PM software with a first-of-its-kind AI Recommendation Engine and complete Google integration.

This is a guest article by Susan Kuruvilla at Gantter.

Gantter is a Gantt chart-based Critical Path Method (CPM) project management tool in the Google Chrome web store.

Gantter was designed to give Google users the most natural Google Drive Editor-like experience for their online project management. It is easily compared to software like MS Project, along with all the advantages of being cloud-based.

Gantter was launched in 2010 and now has 3+ million users across the globe. Headquartered in Rhode Island (USA), Gantter hubs are also located in Bangalore (India) and Dubai (UAE).

While Gantter was initially created to meet the standard planning and scheduling needs of project managers, it has evolved into a comprehensive management tool that some of today’s leading companies use for advanced planning, pull planning, data visualization & reporting, risk management, baselining, and more.

Gantter is ideal for any individual project manager, while it’s advanced collaboration features like real-time multi-party editing and Google Hangout integration are perfect for teams.
