CENTENNIAL, CO - August 19, 2019. OnePager has been issued U.S. Patent Number 10,380,772 for its non-linear time axis technology, which was introduced in version 6.1 of OnePager Pro and Express.
“As OnePager continues to win users across a variety of industries, we are always looking for ways to improve our offerings,” said Nathan Black, VP Solutions of OnePager. “One recurring theme we kept hearing was, users wanted to 'call out' sections of their Gantt charts by making some portions of their timelines wider than others. We developed that technology in version 6.1, and this patent certifies you cannot find it anywhere else.”
OnePager works with Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, Excel, and other PPM tools to create rich, data-driven project timelines and Gantt charts in seconds, saving project managers time and frustration, while making it easier to communicate information about projects and portfolios.
Now, within those charts, OnePager users can change the width of spans of time on their timelines to be non-linear. For instance, they might make the third quarter of 2019 twice the width of the second and fourth quarters, to emphasize events taking place during Q3.
The full title of the patent is “System and method for non-linear and discontinuous project timelines.”
OnePager is the company behind OnePager Pro and OnePager Express, plan communications tools that create rich visual summaries and overviews for use with scheduling teams, senior management and other key stakeholders. Founded in 2005, OnePager has licensed its technology to Fortune 500 companies spanning multiple industries, in addition to numerous government agencies, and is a Microsoft Certified Partner.
