For most project managers, ease of use is a primary requirement for tools which help them manage multiple projects and teams. Using tools which are complicated or difficult to learn is a drain on a company's time and resources, and so any tool used should be easily accessible and learnable by employees across multiple devices, and should have a minimalistic design, a drag-and-drop interface, easy functionality, and smooth maintenance and support features.
One of the main components of project management is collaboration, and any project management system used should be one which makes it simple and easy for teams to collaborate on large projects. The system should allow you to share documents, files, status, timelines, and tasks easily and quickly with a large number of people. Also, communication should be easy and quick between both remote and in-house teams.
