Many of us use basecamp and other "cloud" based tools for managing projects, lists of to-do's etc.

Wondering if anyone has found a good tool for managing design projects in the flow of a process where there are gates or decision points that are consistent in your practice from project to project and allow you to ascertain / check off / measure where you are as a team and the project/product at said gate points in a repeatable way. 

Or maybe a better question...

What needs to be there in a collaboration tool for design teams to measure their success and  aid in decision making / making sure you have not forgot anything etc.?

Check 5pm as a good project management solution ( It has an eay and powerful interface, great Timeline view, mobile edition and other strong features...

If you are looking into a visual solution, a whiteboatd-inspired one, check smartQ ( Makes it easy to visualize the workflow.

Hope this helps.
