The day has finally arrived – you have no idea how hard it’s been to keep this secret from you!
The fruit of over 12 months work, the first stand-alone product that we’ve built since we first started work on Teamwork.com all those years ago, presenting Teamwork Chat (beta).
The Origin Story
Every day we come to work to build great software, software with one purpose – to make the lives of our customers easier. When we started Teamwork.com the basic principle was a fast and easy way to manage all the daily tasks that make up a business. As business has evolved and become more complicated we’ve continued to try and build and develop the features of the platform according to what you, our users, have asked. Some feature enhancements that you asked for and we considered, are so fundamental to how business these days is done that we decided to develop them as separate, stand alone products.
And today, we’re releasing the first of these – Teamwork Chat (beta), a brand new way for your team to communicate in real time.
Teamwork Chat (beta)
We wanted to give you a tool to help them communicate with your team that was faster and more efficient than email and more in keeping with the way they use software to chat in their personal lives; and that’s what Teamwork Chat (beta) is all about – on a basic level you can think of it as a business grade version of WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.
Another critical aspect for us was ensuring that the results of these conversations could be quickly actioned and turned into actual work that needs to get done – so we’re working on giving users the ability to push tasks and information from Teamwork Chat into your existing Teamwork Project Manager account. Ending the era of talk with no follow-up action forever.
Teamwork Chat (beta) is available for Windows and Mac today with iOS, Android and Linux apps coming soon and is available completely for free to any current Teamwork.com user. A stand alone version will be available when the full product launches, for now, you can simply log in using your existing teamwork.com credentials. You can find out more and download the Beta apps here at www.teamwork.com/chat
