TeamLab user success story #2: How I found a ‘cheaper’ project management solution close enough to my perfection

We are continuing our series of case studies from TeamLab active users and today would like to introduce Erik van der Zijden from Netherlands, co-founder of DigiRedo.

1. Erik, what do you use TeamLab for?

I use TeamLab for a variety of business cases. First and foremost for my own company, DigiRedo. With about 7 people we are passionate about implementing new media. We have some 40 projects which are pending for this year and we use TL to manage these. These projects vary from video production, website building to training and consultancy. Finally I’m using TeamLab at some of my customers, a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company (parent company 100k + employees).

2. Did you use online collaboration tools before?

Yes

3. How did you learn about TeamLab and what made you choose it from other platforms?

I don’t know exactly where I learned about TL. Most probably on some sort of blog. I’ve been using many, many SaaS solutions for online collaboration. Last year we have been introducing a platform from a large vendor within that pharmacompany. Costs involved: $50K. I was looking for myself for a ‘cheaper’ solution but had a specific set of requirements. TL meets about 75% of those requirements. Not perfect yet, but close enough to give it a try. I will however monitor other platforms closely but hope TL will grow closer to my perfect platform.

4. How often do you use TeamLab?

Almost daily

5. What would you call the most useful TeamLab feature?

Project Management and the ability to share stuff online.

6. What is the overall TeamLab impact?

The overall impact is that now we have most correspondence about a project in a central place. People are now already referring to TL as a central hub.

7. Have you noticed any significant changes in the way your work is organized?

Not yet specifically, therefore it needs to be integrated much more with other systems such as my GTD system, calender, mail etc. But what I do know is that discussions about pending projects with my bizniz partner happen in a much more constructive and organized way.

Thank you for participating in our interview, Erik.

  • Hi there,

    any news from the bugtracker? When will the launch be?
    Would be a great feature!

    Regards,
    Oliver

    • Oliver, for the near future our first priorities are email integration in SaaS and development of a paid package edition for Windows servers that'll include all the features SaaS provides. As you may conclude, the introduction of a bug tracker is not in our urgent plans. But you can submit your request in our special feedback form so that other users can vote for your idea. If your comment receives a considerable number of votes, we'll take it into consideration and adjust our plans to the needs of TeamLab community.
