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!
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.
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.
