GridIron Flow 2.0 Essentials Launch Now Offers Workflow Management, Collaboration, and Online Storage via Free Download

Flow 2.0 Premium Services Available for Time Management, Versioning, and Enhanced Online Storage & Syncing via Subscription

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - GridIron Software, leading providers of the Project Operating System for enterprise, announced today that GridIron Flow 2.0 Essentials has passed its public beta test and is now fully available for free download from www.gridironsoftware.com. Flow 2.0 Essentials provides a flexible creative environment for production teams and creative professionals; working in the background with the current operating system without intrusion or interruptions. Flow 2.0 Essentials increases productivity by focusing on effective project management, file tracking and file relationships, team collaboration on projects, and efficient time management. To extend Flow 2.0 Essentials free features, GridIron Software today also announced the Flow 2.0 Premium Services are now available via a SaaS model. The Premium Services, including Versions, Time Manager and Overflow, allow customers to subscribe to the services they need or take advantage of all three services in a suite bundle.

"We are pleased that GridIron Flow 2.0 has been well-received by the market," said Udo Eberlein, CEO of GridIron Software. "The feedback we have received from public beta users and press has been overwhelmingly positive and has helped us ensure high performance and consistent positive user experience for our customers. Users will spend less time on administrative tasks while management will have greater visibility and intelligence into project operations and asset utilization within their enterprise. This leads to greater profitability, efficiency and client satisfaction."

GridIron Flow 2.0 Essentials is the first cross-platform Project Operating System defining a new category of technology designed to help creative professionals as well as enterprises solve a variety of problems inherent to workgroups that lead to non-creative work, lost productivity and profits. GridIron's new Flow 2.0 product line addresses the most fundamental causes of these problems: working with disparate teams without tools to track their productivity, and no way to automatically track files, users and project relationships, and their dependencies.

GridIron Flow 2.0 leverages the cloud, creating a SaaS model product that adds capability without hampering the intrinsic workflow of the creative process.
