Free Download CQPIM WordPress Project Management Plugin

CQPIM is a full-feature project management plugin for WordPress. Designed from the ground up by our web solutions agency in Brighton, UK, it was originally created as an in-house solution for managing our own clients and team members…

We’re Re-Branding!

We’re currently working on Version 4 of the CQPIM plugin, and have decided to drop the name CQPIM and go with something a bit more memorable, something we can build as a brand.

Not only that, we’re pushing out over 25 new features / improvements and streamlining the plugin to make it better than ever before. We’re also finally biting the bullet and developing two brand new add-on plugins for WooCommerce and Automatic Subscriptions, which will follow after version 4 of the core plugin.

We’re excited to say the least, and we hope our growing number of amazing buyers and supporters are too!

CQPIM – Complete WordPress Project Management

CQPIM is a full-feature project management plugin for WordPress. Designed from the ground up by our web solutions agency in Brighton, UK, it was originally created as an in-house solution for managing our own clients and team members. As it grew, we realised that there is a serious lack of PM plugins for WordPress, so we decided to launch it for sale, and since then it has been hugely expanded based on feedback from the Envato community.

The plugin aims to combine every aspect of project management into one place, and includes many features that will help both freelancers and agencies to get their projects organised and their communications clear, so that everyone working on the projects knows exactly where they are, at any time.
