—Pyxis Studio, the company behind Urban Turtle, the leading Agile planning tool for Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS), announced today that it has transformed Urban Turtle into an “application platform” to better match dynamic and growing client needs. Moving forward and exclusively for TFS 2012, Urban Turtle will be a gateway for managers and developers alike to purchase software solutions on demand—all within TFS 2012.
At the core of the new Urban Turtle platform is the ability for companies, development teams, or individuals to purchase applications based on their goals and objectives. For instance, managers seeking to track project progress can purchase Urban Turtle’s newest add-on, a dashboard for TFS, without leaving the application. The dashboard offers configurable widgets, including an innovative Sunset Graph that project managers will love.
“The new Urban Turtle platform allows clients to extend TFS with incredible ease. Once initial software is installed, users pick and choose the applications they need and customize them, if need be,” says Dominic Danis, Product Director. The result allows users to avoid costly and time-consuming software acquisition and installation delays. Clients can now get the software they need to be successful—when they need it (24/7).
To support this new direction, and building on Urban Turtle’s hugely popular planning and task boards, the team has already introduced several new applications, including an estimation board to improve and speed up the estimation process and Fast Track, a highly configurable board that allows teams to manage interruptions (e.g. support tickets) and simultaneously maintain sprint commitments.
“This is just the beginning. Our team is committed to developing SMART innovations for our growing client community,” Dominic continued. Moving forward, Urban Turtle will regularly introduce new and valuable applications. More than ever, the team is dedicated to delivering awesome software to help Agile teams around the world be more successful.
