Berkeley, Calif., April 22, 2019 (press release) – Workep, one of the startups participating in the elite UC Berkeley Skydeck accelerator program and a Google partner company, is redefining the project management experience with the launch of the all-in-one project management platform for G Suite users. The platform allows for easy cross-enterprise collaboration, integrates seamlessly with G Suite and is extremely fast, flexible and simple to use. Workep’s said their single platform combines up to a dozen different business tools to provide an efficient solution for both internal and external project teams.
“The most successful work teams are filled with talented people located anywhere, collaborating with stakeholders around the world, and each brings unique skill sets, work styles, and ideas. Cross-enterprise collaboration is the strongest workforce today,” said Eduardo Alvarez, CEO, Workep. “With Workep we have created a collaboration tool that brings all of this together in one place and allows each person to customize the platform based on their needs. It is a powerful, productive yet really simple and, dare I say, fun project management tool which is completely integrated and automated with G Suite.”
During the launch, Workep mentioned that it has raised $1M in angel investments and has grown quickly and organically by word of mouth and online searches to more than 100,000 users. Companies like Vodafone and Norauto have adopted Workep’s platform to help with team collaboration. With a full array of views (Kanban boards, to-do lists, Gantt charts, and Agile boards) into projects, Workep will allow users to focus only on their assigned tasks. It is extremely flexible, saves employees’ time, and provides managers with an overview so they know what’s going on, who’s in charge of what, how resources are being used, as well as gain real-time awareness of any delays. Workep also integrates with Slack, GitHub, Zapier, Team Drive, and DropBox.
For interdisciplinary as well as geographically-diverse teams, Workep seamlessly centralizes the collaboration. For example, a marketing agency is overwhelmed with their day-to-day activities, with thousands of things to keep on track such as projects, tasks, clients feedback, iterations, files, due dates, resources and more.
Today, these workflows are spread among different tools and people lose focus and productivity breaks down. However, Workep can centralize all the information, allowing people inside the agency to collaborate, but also interact with customers and contractors without them needing an account.
With a single link, customers can follow up on the project in real time, eliminating the need to create and send reports and get feedback in any other tool.
The platform’s tools and features add to Workep’s intuitive ease-of-use and set it apart from other project management solutions, said by the company.
The solution includes:
● Fully and seamless G Suite integration (Drive, Calendar, Gmail, Hangouts, Contacts, Google Cloud)
● Customizable for each individual and their work needs
● Intuitive and visual Gantt Charts
● Wellness time tracker
● Budget Tracker
● Easy to share posts, links, and files in any task on the dashboard
● Ability to start conversation threads or video hangouts within the interface
● Project collaboration from anywhere in the world in web and mobile app
“Some studies show that as many as 70 percents of projects fail because people use multiple tools with a variety of different types of user experiences. This leads to fragmented information and broken workflows and actually makes things more difficult, so coordinated collaboration is crucial,” continued Alvarez. “Just as G Suite brings one single user experience to everyone, Workep keeps everybody on the same page and is integrated with tools they already use so everyone can be more productive.”
