After about eight months of struggle to sustain the market, we have decided to close down my current startup, ProtonDreams. I am trying to find a suitable buyer for the product along with source code & possibly IP as well. Or there can be some other arrangement that will mutually benefit both organizations. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions to me. You can send me emails on firstname.lastname@example.org. I can also arrange a hosted demo, if anyone is interested. The entire code base is written from scratch, without any open source code usage. The code can be easily maintained & extended.
Obviously I can't be too explicity about the product & technology but here in I have given good bit of product details:
Our product, AutoFlow is a web & mobile enabled project planning tool that seamlessly integrates with MS-Project & MS-Excel. It can also integrate with any other application very easily.
The main purpose of AutoFlow is three fold
- to allow project managers & other stakeholders to manage & control project from anywhere-anytime
- to allow resources to find out their assigned task without talking to PM & allow them to send in updates as & how the situation changes.
- last but most important... leverage single copy of MS-Project & provide access (View & Update) to entire organization.
- Increase accountability & control over projects
- Eliminate manual scheduling & tracking of tasks
- provide organization level or external visibility to real time project status
- reduce licensing cost associated with MS-Project
- available as hosted or on-premise
