“TX Chrono is a must-have tool for every software organization standardizing on Visual Studio Team System and Team Foundation Server,” said Leo Matveyev, President of SoftInform, Inc., a developer of enterprise search applications. “TX Chrono allowed my technical team leaders to manage their scarce resources more efficiently.”
“Every team leader wants to gain the control over his or her project that is necessary to assure the success of his or her teams,” said Andrei Yurkevich, CTO of TeamExpand. “TX Chrono can help project managers gain visibility over project-related activities, increase productivity, and ultimately accelerate release cycles.”
“Traditionally, users of Microsoft’s application lifecycle management (ALM) tools suffered from a lack of timesheet reporting capabilities,” said Alena Semeshko, TeamExpand Evangelist. “TX Chrono solves the time reporting limitations of Visual Studio Team Edition and Team Foundation Server.”
