Redmine by Planio just works – all the time. Your Redmine updates automatically without your intervention. Every release is meticulously tested by our engineers to let you focus on your projects.
We are members of the official Redmine Security Team. Our engineers are among the first to know about potential vulnerabilities and your Redmine will be among the first to be safe and secure – way before any public disclosures in most cases.
While our team takes great care of updates and maintenance, you remain in full control. Redmine by Planio gives you full access to the Admin area and all relevant settings.
I've developed Redmine's responsive design for mobile device support as well as numerous smaller patches and fixes.
I've been active in the Redmine project since 2008 and I was one of the main contributors behind the ChiliProject fork of Redmine. Over the years, I've contributed numerous patches and plugins to the Redmine project.
I have conceptualized the responsive design for Redmine and I've designed Redmine's beautiful new user interface that's exclusively available at Planio.
I've built Two Factor Authentication for Redmine which makes Redmine account access more secure and lets admins require a 2nd factor for all users. I'm also an active community member on redmine.org helping with issues, and user support.
I've been involved in Redmine since 2007 and I'm a member of Redmine's Security team. I've contributed Redmine's “New” menu and numerous other frontend features.
I've been an avid member of the Redmine community since 2008. I've been involved in all recent Redmine releases triaging and curating contributions by other members. I also run the Japanese Redmine community site redmine.jp.
I've built a number of features for Redmine, most notably the “Sudo” mode which protects certain administrative tasks and makes Redmine more secure.
Great redmine online version with a modern style !
Best redmine saas service so far.
The plan io redmine works prefectly.
It has been a good year and chance since I touched Redmine last (when I was a reviewer for Packt's Mastering Redmine) and I'm thrilled to report Planio has made my life so much easier. HOSTED Redmine, and done VERY well -- AWESOME!!
If your mind is bubbling ideas like a water boiler, the tasks to be done are overwhelming, the time is ever too short and the timelines are framing your possibilities tightly you need some relieve: redmine hosted by planio.
It takes your ideas and converts them into issues which can be broken into tasks with easy handling of timelines, timeframes (sprints), delegation, customer involvement.
The know how you build up while joggling with the tasks is kept secured in the easy editable wiki and the users are informed about task status changes by email, if you want that.
However, the restriction of the amount of projects can be a cost intensive hurdle if you want every customer to be treated in a separate project for data access right separation purposes. For many small companies 200€ per months might be too expensive for unlimited number of projects, however, it is cheaper than an extra person would cost to administer all the server site tasks.
Overall, I like and recommend planio and if you have collaborators that deal with host administrations anyway you can always use redmine on your own host and keep the good habits alive that come with using planio's redmine.
Since 2 years I am a happy user of the redmine system used on a daily basis at customer sites for agile development and quality control.
Now I upgraded my company's bronce plan.io system to the silver level in order to manage all kind of internal projects the very same successful way I've been used to with redmine.
This is for me important because I want to act and re-act as agile as possible on the longer the quicker changing global business opportunities and therefore I need a tool that is easy to use and to adapt to the ever changing requirements of projects and customers.
I asked to help me with the settings of plan.io
How it became clear, redmine has to be updated to resolve my issue. However, guys from the support team, did it for me immediately.
Great thank you for that!
The most complete project manager I ever seen.
I would like to hear if you have in mind to add more applications to plannio. There are a lot of very nice pluggins for redmine, I would love to use but connected with Planio like SalesKing.
I am very interesting in pluggins about CRM, Kanban, scrum.
Another thing can be very good and easy to improve is add documents for users, so any user can have own private space.
Thank you very much.
I could have easily set up Redmine on my own server. The reason I chose planio is that I want personal support and I do not want to care about maintaining and securing a software that is not within my core business.
While the documentation about certain Redmine features is sparse, it is the planio support that makes the difference. Emails are answered within a few hours and answers are on topic instead of the usual prepared messages some support centers use.
planio's integration of git and svn is superb. It is, besides support, the main reason why I chose planio. git integration is key to successful project management if you're a web or software developer.
What would I like to see improved?
I think the handling of email dropbox responses could really be improved. Cutting off quoted text in email replies did not work well so far. Basecamp did a much better job in handling this.
While I would not want to miss the personal support, I would like to see more documentation and tutorials (short screencasts) on how to set things up. planio has already started tackling this issue in part by setting up a blog with informational posts. In general setting things up is the hardest part, Redmine has a lot of options and you really need to understand how Redmine works to make full use of its features. This is where I would like to see more documentation.
Starting with Redmine on planio could also be improved if some options had better presets (especially email notifications and templates) or were already configured in a way that makes sense for most uses. A demo project would also help to grasp some concepts and to see Redmine in action. To be fair though, planio already has a small introduction to the interface built in.
In general, please stay close to your customers needs, it is the main reason why I left Basecamp. They were not willing to improve and grow with their customers. Talks with them were frustrating because often they did not acknowledge the needs of customers who have a growing business. Their newest version dropped German language support while it was already present in the earlier version.
Regarding mobile support, there is RedminePro for iOS, maybe you could buy the app or hire the developer and improve upon it. This app is a nice start but it has not yet the quality that I would expect from a professional app.
In general I haven't seen better commercial Redmine hosting than what planio offers.
Keep up the good job!
