Teamwork is a perfect fit for our agency
Ultimately it came down to ClickUp or Teamwork for us. Clickup needed someone to help set it all up AND it wasn’t as user friendly.

When it comes to managing client work, the choice is clear.

Say goodbye to performance issues

Make slow load times, lags, and glitches a thing of the past. Stop worrying about performance issues and spend more time delivering exceptional client work. (After all, the only bugs you should be running into are on your windshield.)

Time tracking

It's no secret that time tracking is the bread and butter of anyone doing client work. That's why Teamwork provides more advanced time tracking features than ClickUp, so you never miss a billable minute.


Whether you want increased visibility into a project's overall health, utilization, or performance, Teamwork offers more robust reporting options than ClickUp to help you drill down into the right details.


With powerful tools to help you stay on (or under) budget, Teamwork helps you see how profitable you are at a glance. Unlike ClickUp, you can stay on top of every component of your budget in one centralized place.

Teamwork vs. ClickUp: Feature for Feature

ClickUp may have the project management basics, but for delivering multiple complex projects (particularly for client work), nothing rivals Teamwork to delight your clients and make your team more productive and profitable.

Only one of these options was custom-built for client work

ClickUp, on the other hand, was built for everyone. The company is strictly focused on growth and user acquisition: this means features are often launched before they are fully tested and speed is prioritized over efficiency and smooth operation.

Wait, can I really manage ALL my client work in Teamwork?

Yes. That’s what Teamwork was built for. You can manage projects, track time, manage billing and invoicing, forecast budgets, handle complex scheduling and resource allocation, and so much more. In short, if your clients need it, we’ve got it. And of course, you can add an unlimited number of clients to Teamwork.

“Teamwork is the first project management tool that I've been able to get clients to actually use with me. I've tried Asana and Trello, and clients just ignored them.”
Rochelle Broder-Singer President/Chief Word Wrangler
But, does Teamwork have the level of customization I get with ClickUp?

Yes! Teamwork is extremely customizable. The difference is that our features are built, launched and prioritized slowly over time and are designed to complement and support each other.

“Teamwork felt more adaptable than Clickup — which was also feedback we were getting from people that tried both — With Teamwork we could adapt more to different ways of doing business and we were always evolving. Clickup felt more boxed in.”
Cathy Edison Managing Director at HotDog PR agency
Does Teamwork replace all my apps like ClickUp promises to?

It can: but only if you want it to. We’ve designed multiple “suite-style” tools you can add: chat, CRM, spaces and more. But sometimes, it’s better to integrate than replace: that’s why Teamwork also works with your favorite tools.

“With ClickUp, we would have had to integrate with many other tools. We just wanted a tool we could use as itself: one tool that does it all…”
