Trello’s basic version is free, and a generous free plan at that. The basic plan includes unlimited boards, unlimited team members allowed to collaborate on team boards, unlimited cards (or tasks) and unlimited Power-Ups or integrations to a combination of third-party apps and services.
The free version is sufficient for businesses that need a productivity tool to organize tasks and collaborate on work between team members. The paid versions allow for businesses to sync data with business software like Slack, GitHub and Salesforce, allowing for Google Workspace sign-on and feature reporting tools to access real-time insights. Trello’s Standard plan is $5 a month, its Premium is $10 a month and its Enterprise plan is $17.50 a month. Prices are per user and billed annually, and increase if billed monthly.
Jira’s free version is good for smaller teams and projects. It allows up to ten users, has 2 GB of file storage and offers basic roadmap access. The free version is limited to cloud users only and does not have dedicated customer service. As one moves up in the priced plans, features increase exponentially.
The Standard plan at $7.50 per month (per user) allows for up to 20,000 users, an audit log to keep track of changes and dedicated support. The Premium plan at $14.50 a month (per user) adds project automation features, advanced administration insights and unlimited storage, while the Enterprise plan offers all of this for an unlimited number of sites. Customers must contact Jira for Enterprise pricing.
