Projity offers free OpenProj replacement for Microsoft Project

Projity Launches Beta Testing of OpenProj, the Open Source Replacement of Microsoft Project

28 Million Users Impacted by OpenProj’s Complete Replacement of Microsoft Project Through the Open Source Ecosystem; Projity Builds on SaaS Industry Leadership

San Francisco, CA August 7, 2007— Projity, a leader in on-demand software for the enterprise, SME and SMB markets announced today that the public beta of OpenProj, a complete open source desktop replacement of Microsoft Project, is now being beta tested in over 50 customer sites comprising over 500 seats. OpenProj, an important component to the open source ecosystem, takes the risk away for customers and allows them to use the product as needed, on demand.

Since over 28 million users have Microsoft Project installed on their computers, OpenProj offers another opportunity for project managers and anyone trying to manage any type of project. Instead of a $1,000 license fee for Microsoft Project, Projity customers can download OpenProj for free and use it anytime they want from their machine. Project teams can access the same documents and collaborate on projects as well which enables distributed project teams to save time and money.With OpenProj, users can utilize the program on Windows, Linux, Unix or Mac platforms through an open source alternative.

“The Projity team has received tremendous feedback from key industry leaders, who are already using OpenProj to satisfy their desktop needs,” said Marc O’Brien, CEO, Projity. “We have been working on this launch for a while. The Proijty team is excited to provide worldwide usage of a free and open source project management solution that is a complete replacement of Microsoft Project and other desktop solutions. OpenProj's familiar user interface and ability to open existing native Microsoft files makes migrating both free and seamless”

"OpenProj is an exciting addition to the range of professional desktop applications that are available on the free software desktop today. It's increasingly possible to run your business on an entirely open Linux platform, with full compatibility across free software applications and your legacy documents. Congratulations to the Projity team for this milestone release!" said Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu CEO.

OpenProj builds upon Projity's SaaS release, Project-ON-Demand last year. OpenProj offers a seamless migration for Microsoft Project files which open easily, and features a simple user interface. OpenProj’s value for the Linux, Unix, Mac, Windows and open source communities is compelling.

“Projity's release of OpenProj is an important addition to the open source marketplace. The project management area now has a full equivalent to the commercial software market. OpenProj is a terrific addition for users of OpenOffice and other open source solutions,” said Larry Augustin, SourceForge founder and venture capitalist.

OpenProj version 1.0 released

I tried OpenProj V1.0 and ... I love it.
The features are little restricted vs M$-Proj, but sufficient for the majority of your projects.

Well done
