About Epicflow

Despite the evolution of project management thought, there’s still a feeling in all of us that we’re not there yet. No absolute solution is in sight.

Modeling the complexity of multi-project reality is a challenge. Too many project management tools try to account for all factors. Often, enterprise products overwhelm and don't help.

Tool-less approaches take the other extreme, attempting to simplify but unable to deal with reality that doesn’t fit theory.

There are people with decades of research behind them; people with decades of experience managing multiple projects; people who push calculations to the edge; people who create amazing and intuitive user interactions. But a team that has all of these is hard to find.

Epicflow combines all of the above. It’s a science- and research-based analytical multi-project management tool that performs calculations in real time speeds. It’s beautiful and intuitive. It facilitates meaningful communication among CEOs, managers, and those executing. It allows companies to find harmony in projects and reach goals.

Epicflow helps you answer these questions:
What should I do today?
What task sequence has the highest pressure?
Do I have enough resources to finish my projects on time?
Do I need to hire or train resources?
How much pressure should I apply to achieve peak performance?
