2016: Another Great Year at Teamwork.com

Posted   Company Product News

As we close out 2016, we want to give a big thank you to all of our customers. Your feedback has moved our success beyond the goals we set ourselves at the beginning of the year. None of our success would have been possible without you!

Here’s a recap of the milestones from this year.

In January, we set the foundation for Teamwork.com’s entire year. We built structure and systems that would support our entire team and ensure that each update and feature release was exactly what our customers needed.

We celebrated Teamwork Chat’s first birthday, and we also scooped an award for Company of the Year from our local Cork Business Chamber. Since so many customers requested EU hosting, we gave it a top priority so we could offer it this year. In the midst of it all, we threw a little party for Teamwork Desk’s first birthday, too!

Over the next few months, we continued to add features to Teamwork Desk and Teamwork Chat. We know we were a little quiet on the Teamwork Projects front but for good reason. By this time we were in throes of re-engineering the app to get it released by Summer. We knew this would define Teamwork Projects beyond 2016, so we dove into late nights and early mornings to get it all done.

In June, we released the brand spanking new version! Nine months of non-stop revisions and updates were complete, and we were ready to move on to building new features you’ve been asking for — that’s really the fun part for us!TKO In Teamwork Projects

As we moved into the third quarter of the year we had our sights set on one particular milestone and that was to launch our EU hosting option. Having started work on that back in February we were beyond happy to be able to tell our users that we now offered European hosting across all three of our products. We’re proud to be one of the first companies in the industry to offer this service.

Ambitious plans require excellent people, and we have them. In 2016, we added 30 new team members, making our company 73 people strong. We needed a great HQ for this expanded crew, so we built one, completely kitted out with two slides, gaming rooms and an office design that helps us all produce our best.

Teamwork.com 2016 Updates

It’s nothing like the first office we had in our startup days, which you can see here in an interview with co-founders Daniel and Peter.

Now we’re at the very end of 2016. As we look back at these milestones,  we would like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to every single one of our customers for your loyalty, your patience, your feedback and your positive words that keep us going throughout the year.

We love creating these products for you, and after a little time over the holidays with our families, we’ll be back to offer you more in 2017.

From our team to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy and successful new year.

We’ve been blown away by Teamwork, but hope data security and business-class activity auditing can become a focus and reality in the new year.

It’s not just about where the data rests, it’s about data in motion as well. Securing historical usage for administrators is very much missing in almost all aspects of the tool, but could be a great area for growth in the new year. We hope it becomes a focus.

TKO was a huge win this year. Congrats on a superb new framework, the slides at HQ, and the employment drive.

You need a store so we can buy swag and spread the word!

Keep up the excellent work guys – we love your system for our growing agency.

If you can develop this to help manage capacity/utilisation more in 2017 that would be amazing – forecasting assigned tasks vs capacity based on each person’s anticipated available hours (daily through the month as a top line summary) would be the icing on the cake!

Hi Chris,

Good to hear from you.

We have some big plans for 2017 🙂 Resource management is definitely up there, hopefully we will see it soon.

Best regards,

Adrian

Look forward to it. Keep up the good work!

It would be nice if your resource management lets us manage physical assets as well as team members.

For example we currently lend out equipment to potential clients – it would be nice if we could manage that in our TWP. If the asset management was generic enough we could use it to manage all sorts of things (meeting rooms, 3D printer use, pool vehicles, etc). We currently use google calendar, but it would be better if it was asset focused and integrated into project!

Hi, having the whole project snapshot mapped our – incl tasks, risks, roles and deadlines would be great. Also adding WBS chart option – visual link between tasks – people and deliverables..
