100efforts was designed to help teams and professionals spend their time better with effective estimations of efforts. The application offers a helpful service, but it is not something that everyone is searching for. That might explain why 100efforts has gone largely unnoticed so far.

100efforts is a unique productivity application that helps users manage all aspects of use cases and requirements. The service is not quite like other productivity applications. Some users may not find anything of interest, but those that must work with requirements and use cases can appreciate the ability to link both and hold ongoing discussions in a centralized location. The application saves time and lets teams work more efficiently.
100efforts uses a pleasant green color scheme that is deepened by a gentle textile texture. While the green elements are attractive and the application is well-organized, it seems to be lacking in the area of variety. Productivity-minded users may not mind so much because the interface is practical and allows the user to work quickly without obstacles. Others may desire a little more modern eye candy with their productivity manager.
