Collabtive is a web-based project management software published as free software. It provides an open source alternative to proprietary tools like Basecamp.

History[edit]

Philipp Kiszka and Marcus Fröhner started development of Collabtive in November 2007. The primary goals include simplicity, clean design, and visual beauty.

Characteristics[edit]
