This release features a modern new user interface, upgrades to speed and
performance, and most notably, a brand new kanban board feature for
Agile projects.

Founded in New Zealand in 2008, ProjectManager.com has been a major
player in the project management software market with notable customers
including NASA, The United Nations, and Volvo. After raising $3.5
million in Series A funding, the company moved their headquarters to
Austin, TX to expand further into the US market.

CEO Jason Westland, who also founded the startup, says that this product
launch aims to make their powerful project management tools accessible
to more teams, and more specifically, hybrid teams.

“After being in the project management software industry for over 10
years, we’ve learned that every person works differently. Teams deserve
a hybrid planning tool that helps them get work done their way,” said
Westland.

“Hybrid project management” is a relatively new concept in the PM
industry, and refers to a combination of two popular planning styles:
Waterfall, which uses time-based project plans, and Agile, which
utilizes quicker projects, called “sprints.” The new ProjectManager.com
makes it possible to plan both Waterfall and Agile projects, right
within the same platform.

The new version of ProjectManager.com allows teams to plan their work in
three primary views: as Gantt-style project plans, Drag-and-drop kanban
boards, or simple task lists. Users can choose the view that best suits
their own work style, and switch between views seamlessly, making
ProjectManager.com ideal for organizations with different teams that
collaborate and work together.

“We see that companies often have different teams using different tools
to manage their work. Project managers will have one planning tool,
developers and IT teams will have a different software to manage their
backlog, and other teams keep track of to-do lists in a variety of ways.
Our new software brings all of those teams together so they can
collaborate, work, and plan together in one central place,” said
Westland.

ProjectManager.com offers a 30-day free trial for new customers, so
teams can try out the software and see all of the newly released
features at no cost.
