We've tried just about every project management plugin for WordPress, and a bunch more outside of it, and hands down Zephyr is the best we've come across. Simple and intuitive, yet with tons of features, functions and configurability if you need it. Not to mention that Dylan is extremely responsive and helpful. Didn't really need the pro version, because even the free version is extremely fully featured, but bought it anyway because developers like this are absolutely worth supporting! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Dylan has been one of the best developers we have worked with and we have worked with several having built our own in-house project management platform. I highly recommend Dylan and his impeccable passion for coding. Great product looking forward to what Dylan is going to do next.

I am used to Confluence and Jira when working at the site of some customers (global players, not the "normal ones"). As freelancer I dreamed of a quite similar functionality as of Jira for my own purposes that fit my requirements, like sharing projects via frontend with my partners and smaller customers. I am pretty happy now because Dylan's Project Manager does not only provide the looked for professional functions but even allows to configure the tool to my liking that it can reflect my own design on the frontend and, therefore, to my customers. That is, I can stress my professional competence indirectly also by a professional interface. Also, Dylan provides a very pleasant and quick support! With kind regards from a small but beautiful valley in good ol'Germland Jens

We have tried many plugins for our team management and Zephyr is by far the best. Very easy to use, all the feature we needed for our different team, the interface is very nice and clean. Good job!

This plugin took the place of multiple other programs we were using at a big annual cost. Very easy to use and support was lightning fast. Highly recommend Zephyr! You won't be disappointed!

Very easy to use, accompanied with Android app, Dylan is excellent with support and plugin updates. What can I say - if you are looking for fast, simple project management application - look no further! Even some of advanced options are included, to name custom fields as example, and some more announced to come soon.
