How It All Started – Or The “Making of Merlin”


“Back in 2002 when I founded my consultancy under the name ProjectWizards, I opted for Apple. I did this for security reasons and because of the outstanding quality of the computers even back then. On top of this, with MS Office v. X there was a good basic supply of software around. However, when it came to project management, ProjectWizards’ main activity, there were no satisfactory applications for Mac OS X. Following my own evaluations, I therefore decided to get a project management software solution developed. This was the beginning of Merlin.”
