Someone compared qdPM to Redmine on our forum. Here is what they had to say:
” First want to take this time to congratulate the qdPM team on a job well done. I have evaluated many project management systems in my time and I must say, and I would rate qdPM Extended as the best of the bunch.
I had been using qdPM Extended before and because I needed some more functionality and was getting a lag, I switched to Redmine as there were plenty plugins available. This is all fine and good. The MAJOR problem though is that you must know about the ruby on rails framework or you are in serious trouble. Then you have other gems modules that you must install to get redmine working. If you are a rails developer, fine. If not, be prepared to spend some money and if it gets broken, be prepared to spend again. qdPM on the other hand is a simple php script running on Symphony framework. Easy to install and maintain.
The new version 3 has caused me to come back to qdPM Extended. I must also state that the trash function is a very nice feature. The interface is very easy to navigate and a child could find its way around.
qdPM Extended has a lot going for it and I believe it can become a force to be measured against. Would I recommend it? Yes, I do. I highly recommend qdPM Extended over even my next in line Redmine though they are miles apart. qdpm Extended is much more customizable than Redmine. So, you should be able to configure anyway you want it to function. You wont be sorry in using qdPM, I assure you.”
