Our driving obsession is to produce great project management software, so it's nice when we hear things like...
“What do we think of Copper? Its super!!! Currently our whole creative team (online and offline), our data/crm dept, and our client service team use it. We're now working with Ben and the crew at Element Software to tailor the product to suit our unique requirements, what other software company is so responsive?”

“Copper Project is the perfect solution for any size organization that is looking to gain more control. Control of client data, design and production schedules and analyzing project paths. As a past Basecamp user, our staff find the interface smoother and the software more intuitive. Less complicated and more cost effective than some agency systems on the market, it really was the perfect step for our organization.
Our clients jumped right into using it. And with no questions!!! For once, no more explaining how what tabs meant, how to upload files, etc... Our previous project system raised questions time and time again. We are looking forward to many years with Copper Project and can't wait to see how this software grows.”

“Before we purchased Copper our project management software consisted of a tracking system built by an agency employee that only ran on Windows. As the director of art and photography with 5 out of 7 employees using Macs this wasn't very productive. My designers and photographers all used Macs. No one but the project cooridinator had access to the tracking system. We were in need of having everyone involved in updating and tracking the status of projects to help better service our customers and ourselves.
I immediately knew I wanted a web-based project solution and Copper popped out among all the other options I looked at. Copper was very easy to comprehend. As an internal department within a state agency, all the billing and financing is handled by another department. All we needed was project tracking and Copper provided this best.”

“Thanks Ben. Your support is just great.
We love COPPER.”

“Man this PM software has already stunned me. It's really really useful!!! We've been exploring it for several hours, and so far i am very positive. I added clients as users, and added them as resources for project tasks where I need client feedback.”

“We have a complex creative pipeline that includes everything from commercial shoots to software development and Copper is flexible enough to handle it all. The tools are intuitive, very well thought out, and best of all backed by developers who are committed to supporting their customers. It's great!”

“To be honest, I've looked at some other web-based project management software suites and I keep coming back to Copper for two reasons: 1) it's the most functional and intuitive software I've used and 2) because of the world-class customer service we've received from the Element Software team.”
I keep coming back to Copper for two reasons...
“Congrats on the new version! You continue to be the most impressive 'business productivity software' company that I know. Keep up the fabulous work!”
“You guys are awesome and we REALLY appreciate your prompt response and action - we're used to stuff like this just getting ignored and so it was great to be met with such attentiveness. Thanks again!”

“I first want to say that it is a breath of fresh air to work with a software company that strives so hard to make their clients happy. FUSE and our clients LOVE Copper Project; It makes Paris, Istanbul, Buenos Aires, etc. seem right next door. Thanks a million.”

“I clearly saw the increase in productivity with my web design studio, so when I founded a non-profit organization to do work in the slums of East Africa and we began experiencing project management problems, I immediately thought to use copper to manage our volunteers and community development projects.
After giving my leadership team the online tour, they fell in love with it. Now I'm not only using Copper to grow my business, but we're actually using it to provide clean water, sanitation, food, medical assistance and education to people that would otherwise go without!”

“After looking at Studiometry, Creative Manager Pro, Agency Central, CP-ASAP, and Omnipilot, I'm glad we found a solution that actually gets it -- sane pricing, a web-based model, and local hosting -- there doesn't seem to be much in the way of alternatives.”

“We started using Copper November last year and it has proved to be a great success in both monitoring projects, tasks and documents and keeping workloads balanced within the agency.
Copper was easy to set up, easy to learn and easy to use on a day to day basis. The staff and management saw the benefits immediately and we got company-wide buy in from the get-go.
Also the fact that we can customise Copper to fit our specific company requirements makes it ideal for an online search marketing agency as ourselves. The price was right too.”

“At ArtWhere, we were looking for a way to share critical project information with our customers. We wanted to allow our customers to be involved in the development process by giving them a valuable feedback on their project milestones. Copper gave us more than that, also providing a brilliant way to share project documents and links. It has really added value to our customer relationships. They never ask us what the project situation is, they just know it.”

“SunTech Consulting is a small virtual web design company located in British Columbia, Canada. We began using Copper Project Management Software in 2002 as we have up to 18 consultants all working from their homes in various parts of the country.
The software has been very easy for our team to learn and use and has made our work group very efficient allowing us to complete projects on time and manage tasks effectively, creating happy clients.
This year we upgraded to Copper 2007 and I would recommend Copper software to any team manager looking for a quick easy and effective solution for project management, large or small.”

We're really impressed with the software.
“As a company that has to keep up with multiple web build projects, CPC and co-registration projects, plus various email campaigns, we'd be in the WEEDS without Copper.
If you herd a lot of cats, Copper can help you streamline, organize and track your projects with a minimum of complicated internal processes. And the support is grand. I never fail to be impressed at their responsiveness.”

“What good is a project management tool that nobody uses? After spending 5+ years and lots of wasted time and money on other solutions, we found that Copper Project has the magic combination of ease of use, for customers, and flexibility, for contractors or employees.
As a result, people actually use Copper, and that makes my life easier. Sure, the increase in profits is a great benefit, but to be honest, the reduced stress from people actually using it, is worth 10x the cost.”

“Being based in Tokyo, Japan - one the most dynamic and evolving markets in the world - and working with a mostly Japanese speaking staff and clientele meant that the "typical" project management software packages on the market were an inadequate solution for our production team.
After a year long search, Copper has been instrumental in helping organize our production process and job-tracking network. Also, because Copper is web-based, it provides us with a multi-lingual platform in which to work off of, as well as being a globally connected application from which our Sales team can have 24-hour access to.”

“Zenfilm is a full service TV commercial production and post-production shop. With project management and scheduling software for our industry ringing up at $20,000+ US, we thought a core administrative program would be out of our reach.
Copper changed all that...it is so flexible that it was easy to adapt to our work processes. The program has become so central to our business that it is now part of our vernacular..."I put it in Copper for you", "Is it in Copper", "everybody update Copper before you leave"....I must hear the name "Copper" 20 times a day.
Our project management, client services and billing processes have increased in efficiency and accuracy. Both work and billing are getting out faster. Copper also has the most attentive, personal support in the business. We never wait long for answers and solutions. I just wish more of our application vendors worked this way.”

“Copper's intutive ease of use and simplicity fits our needs to a tee. In addition, the web interface makes it very easy to collaborate with any member of our team, anywhere and at any time. It was set up and ready to go in less than a day and we have already noticed a significant improvement in tracking and managing resourcees and projects. I'm glad I found it on the web!”

“In science, you are what you publish, and preparing one's work for peer-review and publication can be more time-consuming than the 'science' itself. My work regularly involves collaborators throughout the U.S., Canada, Japan, Finland, Germany and the UK, and I keep all of my manuscripts and projects on-track by using Copper.
Copper is beautiful from the inside-out and has given my team an unprecedented ability to focus, communicate, collaborate, and get our works published and publicly available.”

“Sourceforge and other associated Open Source/free repositories returned less than suitable results. We road tested a few of the products over the last few months and found that nothing was suitable.

“We have been looking for a decent software product for over a year. We've been through nearly 50 different trials from Autotask to Vertabase and your system fits our company the best.”
“When we first started managing multiple design projects we looked all over for a solution that would be a good fit for our agency. Most importantly we wanted something that wouldn't interfere or change up what we already do. We wanted to be able to manage multiple projects and clients quickly and effectively through a web based interface. Copper fit the bill.
It has worked perfectly and allowed us to stay organized. As great of a product Copper is for us, the quality of support has been even better. Any question we have gets answered quickly and thoroughly. The Copper support team really works with you and is there to assist with every aspect of their product. A tremendous product with a great interface and a wonderful product team! Thanks Element for keeping us organized and thinking the way a designer thinks about the project.”

“Copper is ideal for creative teams, both small and large. We began using copper as a small and relatively organized web design company but after implementing copper into our workflow we suddenly realized how disorganized we were and immediately we saw an uptick in productivity.
Since then, we've successfully grown by 42% year over year and although we're managing nearly 8 times more projects now (than when we began using copper) everything remains cleanly organized within an interface that our designers and developers love to use.
Not only has Copper directly helped our bottom line, but it enables our design teams to comfortably handle more projects without additional stress. The result is a tremendously better final project for our customers and a more positive atmosphere in our studio, all of the necessary "elements" for success.”

“As our business has grown and projects have multiplied, efficient project management software has become absolutely critical for us.
We investigated and tried nearly every project management system out there, but none were as well-designed, or as simple to use as Copper. It has enabled us to organize every project from start to finish, meet deadlines with greater precision, and produce results in a continually steady workflow.
We implemented it in 2004, and our productive output has dramatically increased ever since! Copper has been a Godsend ... I shudder to think what our studio would do without it.”

“While we develop great custom applications for our clients, we needed an integrated project management application for own use. Copper was an excellent choice, as it satisfied all of our initial needs. Since the original implementation, the Copper framework allowed us to expand the functionality and customize it to our needs as we grow and diversify. The benefits of the product have been ideal for our needs, and at a very reasonable cost.”

“As a small shop partnering with various specialty developers, sme's, and content providers in a virtual environment, we soon realized that Yuccalab needed a collaborative solution catered toward our industry. After several close looks at other "similiar" web-based tools, we found that Copper was truly the only solution that met our specific needs 100%. It has saved countless hours of busy work managing project work-flows and communications between project partners. The energy we were dedicating to organizational tasks is now directed to servicing our customers and providing the expertise we were hired to do.”
