GForge Group Reboots with Free Beta of Their Redesigned Collaboration Solution for Software Development Teams

GForgeNext builds on the foundation of flagship product GForge AS, melding 15 years of experience in project collaboration, thousands of projects and work hours, distilling it all down to what development teams need now, and going forward.

Des Moines, IA, May 09, 2016 --( The GForge Group, announces this month a free private beta for GForgeNext, an all-in-one project collaboration solution for software development teams. GForgeNext ( is built on the foundation of the company’s flagship product GForge Advanced Server. With the public beta, software development teams of five or more will be able to manage deliverables and milestones, source code and collaborate efficiently.

"We believe in great software, but even great software companies don't always get their best ideas to market on time. And like you, we know that time means everything," said Tony Bibbs, GForge Group CEO. "With GForgeNext, we took GForge back to the drawing board, making significant improvements while trimming as much fat as possible."

"The release of GForgeNext forced us to be honest about what we are good at, and where we have fallen short. Similarly, we had to identify how we could improve on our successful features, while keeping an eye on innovation. When GForgeNext comes out of beta we are confident it will be clear that our goal wasn’t to simply add a slick interface or keep pace with similar solutions. GForgeNext is a combination of over a decade of experience with new ideas that help our customers get their products to market faster."

GForgeNext currently delivers the following core features:

* Project Tracking. Stay on task, and on time, with project tracking for teams. GForgeNext provides an integrated view of the entire project.
