Trusted by Great Teams

“We were writing half-page status reports for each project and had OKRs in spreadsheets and PowerPoints that we shared at company and organization-level meetings. We realized we needed a tool instead of trying to put everything in Google Docs."

Mary Grossi, Senior Director of Program Management, New Relic

“We tracked our OKRs in Google Sheets and would revisit them as a company each month during team meetings. Overall, the process was really clunky and there was really poor visibility and a lack of tracking into how we were progressing as a whole.” 

Elliott Easterling CEO at TrueData

“Our OKRs were at a sufficient level of complexity and managing them in a spreadsheet wasn't going to cut it. We knew that beyond defining our OKRS, we really wanted to create visibility and accountability around tracking them.”

Seth Trudeau, VP of Product at ALG
