[prMac.com] Melle, Germany - In Melle on November 9 2009, Merlin, the most successful project management software for Mac, turned 5. What an exciting time, from the humble beginnings to a full range of products available today for project managers. Started as an internal solution for organising the consulting activities of ProjectWizards, Merlin became the leading project management software for the Mac user.
Five years in project management oriented software development and continuous product improvement are almost an eternity in information technology scales. What a great reason to celebration its success. Everyone purchasing Merlin 2.7 or another Merlin product between November 9 and December 31 2009 will automatically be entered into the big birthday event. First prize is a cruise for two people with Celebrity Cruises. A contract-free iPhone 3GS and an iPod Touch are included among others prizes.
Frank Blome, CEO of ProjectWizards: "When we decided to bring Merlin to the market there was no project management software available for the Mac or Mac users to fulfill our high standards. Ultimately, it paid off for us and our customers that we have uncompromisingly contributed our practical project management experience into Merlin's software development. With the attractive prices of the '5 years Merlin' birthday event, we do not simply want to celebrate, but also thank our customers."
Meanwhile, Merlin has grown into a complete product range for professional project management and consists of the following applications and optional modules:
