New Pie Launched!
Yes! We launched a new Pie application.
We spent the last two years re-building PieMatrix Pie from the ground up. This includes a new friendlier user interface, new user experience, and many new features such as the new Agile and Process integrations to make true hybrid projects.
Big feature hits!

A pot-full of new features! (See below for the list.)
The new app look and feel
We had great feedback in the past for our first version. Our customers loved the “pie” paradigm and I decided to keep that look for the NEW Pie. The new application has a cleaner, friendlier, and more modern look.
Agile and Process for hybrid projects
One of our new great achievements is the ability for a project to be structured as a true hybrid using both process methodology and pure agile for scrum and sprints. These two approaches can now be used in the same project. You no longer have to use different tools, such as Microsoft Project for overall task planning and JIRA or Trello for the agile development part. Do both with the new Pie. You can set up different slices with either a set of process tasks or a kanban board with automated features for multiple sprints.

… And we have a New Logo
We re-branded the application and it’s now called “Pie”. Yes, we actually do have a trademark for “Pie”! The logo is a progression from the previous logos. The swishing pie layers or slices are designed to give an organic whimsical feel to mimic the usage of the app. The font is called Comfortaa and was chosen for its round friendly feel, again to express the feel of a delicious pie.
