“Approximately two years ago we embarked upon the redevelopment of our leading traffic and financial management tool, and this release is a major step, and just the first of a series of releases we have planned for the remainder of 2011," stated fp founder and CEO Chris Wilson. "Having originally been developed in an early version of PHP and mySQL, Alon (our VP of Technology) had been pressing me, telling me we needed to redo the back-end of the system. I'm happy to report that we have now succeeded in putting the tools in place to allow the future development of advanced web interfaces such as easy loading of time sheet entry screens, views of staff utilization, and graphical components to represent current project loads."

Function Point has been strategically re-writing its workflow management software with a focus on providing small to medium sized creative and design firms a business tool that will help increase profitability and ease the burden of clerical and financial work for service companies who want to maximize their billable time.
