Version 6.3 of the project management software in-STEP BLUE has been released. The software helps users with process-based project planning and controlling as well as with version-secure management of all project results, like requirements, changes, test cases, etc. The functional scope of the WebApp has been expanded substantially in the new version.
The new release of in-STEP BLUE offers users improved activity planning in the WebApp, which enables an overview of deadlines and costs with a Gantt chart. When planning resources, immediate notifications help prevent overloading an employee and notifications can also be attached to employees’ planned hours. Navigation in team planning has been simplified. Multi-project branching is now also an option to allow requirements and test specifications to be easily transferred from one project to another.
