Yes, we know you are not as thrilled as LastPass is with this trust-transfer transaction. Acquisitions are intrinsically unsettling and raise questions about pricing, data privacy, security, development, vision, values, and other core issues. Since businesses usually tend to recoup the acquisition costs from the newly acquired customer base, acquisitions generally scare users.
“To be persuasive, we must be believable; to be believable, we must be credible; to be credible, we must be truthful.” — Edward R. Murrow
Although Murrow was specifically referring to the practice of good journalism, his shrewd statement can also be applied to the practice of good business, in which credibility and trust are the bedrock of every healthy relationship.

When it comes to building and distributing software, both development and testing go hand in hand. To put that in project management terms, both tasks and bugs go hand in hand. A developer has a set of tasks to be ticked off before a feature can be released. And during the development stages, code issues are discovered either by the developer or by the tester and are logged as bugs.

Here is where we come in and give you our new Task and Bug Linking feature that couples your task management with bug tracking.

We want you to be the salesperson who make a difference to your clients. Read more
