Work Breakdown

Create your project in a few minutes

Have your cake – and eat it!

Eating a cake in one go is difficult. Either there’s always some left over or it takes ages. So the best thing to do is to cut the cake into small pieces and then start eating it. It’s the same with project management.

Every project begins with a rough plan. You then divide this up until you get manageable tasks. Following this, you order the tasks and bring them into a structure that makes sense. At the end, you link the tasks and determine what needs to be done first. You’ll be amazed how a precise project plan develops before your eyes – as if by magic.


Someone has to do the work.

No resources = no project.

Merlin Project Express gathers all the people, companies, and materials involved in your project all in one place. Among other great features, you can drag participants from your Mac address book to your project and they’ll be available to use as “Resources” right away.

Want to know what costs a resource generates? No problem – enter the hourly rates or flat-rate charges, and Merlin Project Express will generate the costs for you automatically.


The smart way to store additional info

Just like an email attachment

Where do you add the additional info that comes with your project? Drag & Drop makes it a breeze to attach emails, texts, images, and much more besides to tasks in Merlin Project Express. You can also add costs and notes later on. And if documents change at any point, that’s not an issue. Merlin Project Express remembers all the different versions.

This way you can consolidate all your information in one place – in your project plan.
