The team has honest billing practices and creates incredible value for the cost.

As an offshore vendor, Product Crafters has saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars compared to the cost of domestic firms. Also, their great suggestions have made the software better.

Maxwell Murphy, CEO at ProcessBoard.io

This story begun in 2016. Maxwell Murphy had an idea of the app to manage recurring tasks in a better way. He already co-founded #1 e-commerce site in USA in magic tricks niche - PenguinMagic.com. And Our friend engineer developed very first version of it and introduced us to Maxwell.

We started working remotely on improving an initial version of an app. We had weekly calls and reports. Soon we started talking more often. After seeing progress, the founder decided to increase the team. We brought another front-end developer and QA.

Maxwell likes to travel, so trip to Ukraine was interesting for him from both perspectives - fun and business. Two weeks after discussing it I've meet him in the airport in Kiev. The same day we were in our Khmelnitsky office. This is a great practice for decision makers to visit remote team. We brainstormed most challenging ideas together immediately started implement them. During this time, we developed Organizations feature in app. Basically, it opened app for businesses. It allowed to model organization processes and assign them to executors. Their manager can review performance easily and avoid micromanagement. Also, we added Stripe support to allow in-app billing. Also, we came up with new landing page angles. And I helped Maxwell to prepare marketing materials on TV-grade equipment here to do the basic production. It allowed him to save extra money. Later we hired English teacher who helped creating content for process library.

Maxwell liked Ukraine so much that he decided to stay here for some time. Soon after short a visit to US, he returned back and spent with us overall 3 months. Which is maximum limit for a foreign citizen.

In 2018 we've implemented all features. Later, Maxwell not only gave us 5-star feedback but also recommended our team to his brother Matt. Now we already gain 3 persons team-size for this project. But this is beginning of the another story..

Core Features

Process

The essential part of Process Board is a 'process'. You are able to model any real-world process and bring it to digital format to be able track it. Each line in a dashboard is a process. Each rectangle shows the progress of that process on a particular date. If a user completed all process steps, it will be green. Otherwise it will be red.

One more amazing feature allow you sharing the entire activity group to another person with just a couple of clicks!

Flexible process control

Each process may have unlimited number of steps. Each step here may be a checklist item for very simple actions 'buy a milk' or a text item for more detailed answers 'What particular steps have I accomplished after reading a monthly report?'
