September 1 2011 -- ProjectKoach 2012 release is available

"ProjectKoach saved us!
We saw right away that our delivery date was indeed weeks after what we thought.
On a daily basis, our developers could see what they needed to do to help bring the project back on track.
For each new request we received from our stakeholders, we could show them the impact right there.
ProjectKoach combines RUP and Agile to great effect. Don't leave work without it!"

-- Jas Madhur, Project Manager Sierra Systems

"As a developer, I found ProjectKoach most useful - it was clean and easy to understand. The energy normally dedicated to organizational tasks was now spent in development. I have not come across a better tool for relating development of use cases within a project plan. After the coffee maker, it’s the next best tool in the office!"

New in ProjectKoach 2012

read full press release

ProjectKoach 2012 introduces two features that will make your life as project manager so much easier: Linking with external process web sites, and use and creation of project templates.

Linked process pages are selected based on individual tasks, so that your team always have the right process at their fingertips without having to wade through, and interpret, massive process documentation. The bundled OpenUP for ProjectKoach process is a full version of OpenUP ready for use.

Project templates offer one-click project plan creation, which means that you can be underway with your new project in just a matter of seconds - literally!

The bundled project template for OpenUP projects links your new project automatically to the bundled OpenUP process web site, and a process model that helps you instantiate the full OpenUP process inside ProjectKoach!

User experience without limitations

With the plan editor, requirements backlog, task lists and bugs all in the same workspace you have full control and overview of your project data at all times. Editing requirements and iteration plans is as easy as editing other files in your workspace.

ProjectKoach's structured requirements backlog helps you organize your requirements just like in your file system, and it helps you keep track of new requirements as they arrive; whether you are using your favorite editor, like Microsoft Word for example, or one of Eclipse's built-in editor, the steady flow of new requirements is kept under control at all times.

And you plan your work simply by dragging-and-dropping requirements onto the iteration plans where you assign tasks and estimate and monitor progress. All in the same workspace.

The feature list doesn't stop there; there is a wealth of built-in features to make your project planning life easier! See the full feature list.
