What users are saying

“I love using this tool. Since I adopted it as my standard project management tool, I finally feel like I’m on top of my tasks. Modus Operandi has helped me work better with others, especially students. I can keep track of the different assignments and tasks that I assign to different students and all of us can see the progress together and discuss it in a more efficient way. I highly recommend it as a very user-friendly, simple tool to start managing your projects.”

Jorge testimonial for project management tool

Cloud-based project management systems will cost you $10+ per month
(which adds up to hundreds of dollars a year)
and they keep you highly dependent on their software.

Then you have to pay to add another team member
or upgrade for access to premium features.

 You could also put in the time and effort to build your own project management tool.

Or you could do nothing.

Struggle to accomplish anything at work within a poorly organized system.


You can get Modus Operandi for a single one-time payment of CAD $25.

Get organized so you can get back to the important stuff.
