Cloud Coach has added support for the Water-Scrum-Fall methodology to its PSA solution built on the Salesforce platform. The new functionality is available within all the Cloud Coach solution tiers, including the starter tier, which includes five free users. The new feature allows users to manage projects with a Gantt chart and a Kanban board.

Brianna Snook, Product Manager at Cloud Coach, said: “With so many organizations already running their projects as a hybrid of waterfall and agile methodologies, Water-Scrum-Fall ensures that everyone can manage projects in a way that suits their unique business needs.

“By combining classic waterfall capabilities, including dependencies, critical path, baselines and more, with agile kanban sprints, board processes and backlog management, you can deliver projects with accuracy like never before, without forcing a one-size-fits-all methodology onto already pressured teams.”

This is just the latest project methodology that Cloud Coach supports. Peter Lee, CEO at Cloud Coach, commented: “Many businesses have made significant investments in Salesforce but have yet to truly leverage the power of the platform within their organization for project management.

“By providing the flexibility needed to run any project with any team, Water-Scrum-Fall ensures businesses get more value from Salesforce, while also improving their project processes.”
