ActiveState introduces Firefly

Earlier today Vancouver’s ActiveState launched Firefly, a hosted project management and collaboration solution for managing commercial software development projects.

With Firefly, software and web development teams in large enterprises and small-to-medium sized businesses can become more productive, more efficient and deliver higher quality software projects on time. Firefly simplifies project management with built-in systems to track and manage features, bugs and team tasks. Managers can set clear priorities, understand dependencies and gain visibility into project status and progress.

Established in 1997, ActiveState creates and provides professional business solutions and tools for corporations and developers who use dynamic languages including Perl, Python, and Tcl. Its open source language distributions – ActivePerl, ActivePython and ActiveTcl – are renowned for their quality and relied upon by companies and developers worldwide.

ActiveState is owned by its employees and Pender Financial Group, a private merchant bank focused on technology in BC.
