Knowpher™ is a project management app, custom developed by and for FileMaker solopreneurs, freelancers, and subcontractors. Brad Stanford of Two Story Systems, created Knowpher because he needed a way to manage his clients – all types of them. He had clients that ran the gamut of large development houses down to individual people.
Contrary to the regular advice found on this site, Brad needed a custom app because of how he had to work as a subcontractor. He received payments in all different methods, at all different times, and sometimes they were partial payments. He invoiced the same way. The large development houses all had their own tools, none of which he could use with his clients. So, Brad developed Knowpher out of necessity. When the pants don’t fit, you make new pants! Brad could now see all of his priorities in one place at one time. Furthermore, he could link to the tools the development houses used for reference.
Since Susan consulted with Brad on his project management set up, Brad reached out to see if his app would work to serve the community of people just like him. And, she agreed that it would! If there’s anything our owner remembers from being a project manager: a lot can go wrong during custom software development. You need a way to manage yourself and your clients to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.
No surprise, every size development company — from freelancers working in a basement to firms the size of iSolutions, MainSpring and Soliant — struggles with the chaos of project management. That’s why Knowpher is flexible, customizable, and full of value. Brad’s and Susan’s in-depth understanding of the project management pain points associated with this industry is what guided this FileMaker project management app’s development. Those big companies have their solutions. This one is for the independents!
Get Knowpher and Get Beyond the Chaos
After moving back to Texas from Chicago, Susan worked at a FileMaker Platinum Business Alliance development company as a project manager. She first met Brad at that company. Furthermore, they were both from Texas. And they’ve crossed paths consistently ever since. They’ve always worked well together and have a shared philosophy to serve others.
Whether it be a tool like Knowpher, project management consulting, or the project management service itself, it is Beyond the Chaos’ passion to help people through chaos, and into a more tranquil, less stressful place. Two Story Systems uses FileMaker development and design to serve the same purpose.
Managing projects isn’t easy. But, our experience helps folks get to where they can manage their projects instead of their projects managing them. Knowpher is your first step, as an independent developer or solopreneur, to get beyond the chaos.
