Plan, track, and organize your priorities across projects and devices

Appfluence LLC is a software company based in Palo Alto, CA. We are founded in 2010 by technology experts with extensive experience and interest in making a frictionless workplace. Appfluence has showcased Priority Matrix during multiple events at Stanford University, including the Stanford Product Showcase and the BASES product development accelerator Forge. Appfluence hosted booths at both MacWorld 2011 and mobile conference AppNation in San Francisco. Appfluence is a proud Stanford StartX incubator company, and has been repeatedly selected among the top companies coming out of Stanford.

As of January 2014, we have more than 81,500 paid customers, and Priority Matrix is used across the world in small and large companies. We're proud to help our customers fundamentally change the way they work and grow their businesses.

We're passionate about productivity because we ourselves are subjected to the same modern day information overload you face. We believe that through prioritization and focus, we can do less, achieve more, and live better lives. This is why we made Priority Matrix, and with it, we hope to share our vision with you.

Priority Matrix is not for everyone. In the end, Priority Matrix is just a tool, and both personal and team productivity is really about you and how you spend your time. If you resonate with us, send us an email and let us know what challenges you face.
