We've covered Tartu-based Weekdone winning the annual Estonian design awards, but apparently the company isn't just all looks; they just beat out the 400 other hopefuls in the region to win Slush's massive startup pitching competition.
For those of you who haven't seen our past coverage, or didn't see them up on stage at Slush, Weekdone provides a productivity and task completion solution for the web and iOS that gives managers the ability to see an overview of what they're teams are working on, and how they're competing their tasks. It's gorgeous and powerful, especially if you're using the PPP reporting paradigm, focusing on Progress, Plans, and Problems.
A team leader's job is to make sure people get things done, and you can't improve what you don't measure. Enter Weekdone, the Estonian productivity and task completion application that now announces it has launched on iOS and a major new web version. The app, and now mobile app, helps managers use popular management methods, such as PPP and OKR (or to the uninitiated, "Plans, Progress, Problems", and "Objectives & Key Results") to keep track of all the moving pieces.
Keeping an eye on your employees or team can still be messy, but Tallinn-based Talentag has launched a new employee status reporting service called Weekdone. Clearly there are a lot of competitors out there- such as Basecamp, Pivotal, or Asana, and we've even experimented with a few of these tracking solutions at the ArcticStartup office to help stay on top of things. But eventually all of them became more trouble than they were worth, and were difficult to fit into our workflow.
Jüri Kaljundi, co-founder of Weekdone, says that they see their strength in simplicity by giving updates on key items - something everyone has time to read.
