Peter Coppinger & Daniel Mackey founded Digital Crew in 1998 and have made a living building websites, intranets and custom web-based solutions for clients in Cork, Ireland. At this point their company has a good reputation internationally and they sell website components online.
They spent some time reviewing and using project management software and tried several different companies and found many were very expensive, overly complex, and some were lacking basic features, they wanted something intuitive that doesn’t take time to learn and maintain. Something everybody in the company can use – not just the project manager.
So Peter and Dan set about creating their own Project Management software, their mission was simple – to make the world’s most easy-to-use, fastest and best Project Management System.
