Why activeCollab?

activeCollab┬áis a web based project management and collaboration system. It’s ideal fit for organizations that want to manage their projects anytime – anywhere in a user friendly and secure manner. activeCollab is flexible, powerful and allows self hosting. It is one of the best out there!

We’ve used activeCollab ourselves from 2007 and started customizing it heavily to fit our needs in 2008. We felt our customizations can help other activeCollab users too, so started selling them in 2009.

Today, we develop the best selling and most loved activeCollab modules. We have 4000+ awesome customers. Our products save millions of dollars and thousands of hours for our customers every year.

Malay Ladu

Malay is our “behind the curtain” magician, taking care of product development and customer support. He is passionate about solving problems and creating products that make a difference. Maths is his favorite subject – he was actually known as a math geek in school!

Nikita Mehta

Nikita owns the company, both literally and figuratively! She takes care of finance, accounts and legal work. And motivates Nirav (her husband) to keep innovating and pushing forward. She does not understand all the tech gobbledygook Nirav and Malay throw around, but she surely creates an environment where everyone thrives.
