    Nice post Alyssa. I’ve used GoalEnforcer myself and it’s really good software. Certainly it can be improved but I liked it better than GoalPro. IMO GoalPro is more old school whereas the new ones take a more visual approach of things.

    I am going to try some of the other ones you mentioned, they all look hot!

    GoalEnforcer rocks! I’ve been told that there is an iPad version coming soon. I can’t wait!

    Goalscape is the best by far – proper PM functionality with a great visual format. There’s an online version too and I think they are doing an iPhone/iPad app.
