ClickUp is new and sold to everyone. Its mission is to change productivity for every business, everywhere, and its $537.5 million in funding has led to a bloated feature-set. The result? It’s too confusing for small businesses and too simplistic for enterprise.
Teamwork was founded in ‘07 and designed its feature set around your client service needs. Every new feature is built, launched, and prioritized so it complements and supports existing workflows. This leads to software that’s intuitive, easy to use, and helps you painlessly manage all client work in one place. We even have a specific plan for agencies.
ClickUp is disorganized. Its approach to growth is haphazard: adding document features, chat, mind-mapping, and project management into one giant platform. This lack of structure hurts visibility into your projects: vital tasks and key priorities get lost in the chaos and you’re left feeling overwhelmed. Again.
Teamwork takes a scalable approach to growth. Our project management platform is clean, simple, and only includes what you need. This way, you can easily see the big picture. And, to help you grow, we built stand-alone options like desk, chat, CRM, and spaces that help teams do more without overwhelming the workflow.
ClickUp is unfinished and confusing. The paying customer is the ultimate beta user: live-testing the string of new features and building workflows on the go. This makes onboarding chaotic and unpredictable.
Teamwork is simple to set up. Made for – and tested by – thousands of agencies, everything you need to start is there the second you log in. And our experienced customer support team is there to help.
The right project management solution doesn’t just streamline the way you run projects. It creates peace of mind. And when you’re not stuck in the weeds, you can grow something extraordinary. Coincidentally, that’s exactly what Starburst Business Solutions did.
How do we stack up? ClickUp has basic project management features but it lacks structure. Scaling your agency, team, or professional services business with it is hard. Teamwork gives you the client-management power your business needs: everything is laid out to support you.
Right now, ClickUp is all about growth and user acquisition. When you raise a round of $400 million, investors expect major returns. To hit their target, they’ve kept their plans priced for growth. But all good things end… and unlike ClickUp, our plans are going to stay competitive. Because they have been that way since ‘07.

We’ve converted fully to Teamwork, using it for project management and internal operations. Teamwork gives us more agility: more real time updates, better communication paths and saves us time…
The short answer? A proven, convenient product that works and has been tested by client service businesses since 2007. We built Teamwork over 15 years: for most of that time, the company was bootstrapped. This meant we had to be selective: we built the features that made the most sense for you and for the product. ClickUp, on the other hand, prioritizes haphazard weekly releases to show “activity” to investors. These new drops frequently lead to crashes because they’ve not been fully integrated into the system. This makes it hard to see the big picture and feel prepared.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re reading this page, you probably have a pretty clear idea of which features your team needs to succeed. Most of our customers compare the features from their “wish list” against the features listed here under each plan. The plan that has the most of what you need or want is the winner.
