Abstract
This article is dedicated to the problems of software solutions used for managing projects. A task like this one is full of many challenges because, on one hand, on the market there are many versions of software platforms developed for managing projects. On the other hand, the projects co-financed by the Operational Programmes of the European Union are very specific. These peculiarities are related mainly to the complexity of the documentation combined with the need of serious financial planning of the interim and final reports. Adhering to task schedules is a key moment in planning and returning of funds. The development of the research topic includes a description and an analysis of software solutions that are often used for managing projects. The article also provides a comparative analysis of project management software features based on a defined number of criteria and indicators. The findings of this analysis permit the formulation of recommendations for the development of new systems, which will allow users to manage the funds received under EU projects adequately, and according to schedules.
