QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - Websystems Inc. is proud to introduce recurring tasks in its online project management software product, AceProject.
Recurring tasks aim at automating repetitive task creation, just like Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook do with events. Unlike recurring events however, recurring tasks are more collaboration-oriented than events, and fit perfectly in a project management context.
"Recurring tasks had been requested often for some time. Due to the feature's complexity with regards to analysis, development and integration it was always pushed back while there always seemed to be other priorities, until now," says Stephane Camire, Software Analyst for Websystems.
Among other benefits, recurrent tasks empower team members to create a periodicity in order to set up tasks that occur every day, week, month or year. AceProject then takes care of automation and ensures those repeating tasks are created in accordance with the periodicity.
The feature went through an extensive private beta program for several weeks. "Everyone was thrilled about task recurrences. It's not surprising, considering the fact that it's one of the most requested features in the product's history," says Michel Deslandes, Customer Service Representative for Websystems.
Good implementations of recurring tasks are uncommon in online project management solutions and very few products offer this capability to the level of AceProject. Most of the time, what is offered are online calendars with recurring events, which are limited from a collaboration standpoint, non-editable recurrences or no recurring tasks whatsoever.
Daniel Raymond, Websystems' founder and owner, is confident that recurring tasks will reinforce AceProject's competitive edge: "We continue to push forward and offer our clients great functionality for a great value. Our online project management offering keeps getting better and better. After more than 10 years AceProject continues to grow due to its commitment to quality and improvements such as recurring tasks", says Mr. Raymond.
