Having celebrated our Birthday and released the new TeamLab version, we’ve decided to sum up the results of our first year in the market and tell you about our plans for the future.
So, what is TeamLab today? It is over 115, 000 users worldwide and 36, 500 portals created. TeamLab helps to manage more than 76, 000 projects with a total amount of 347, 000 assigned tasks. An impressive set of numbers for a fresh startup, isn’t it?
Our growth rate shows 300% increase in half a year: at the beginning of February there were 32, 990 users and 12, 002 portals. It’s pleasant to say we are keeping the same pace in summer that usually is a low season of business activity. Our geography space is expanding as well. TeamLab is popular in 148 countries on 6 continents.
But we understand this is still only a starting position if we claim to be a serious mature project. At least, there are no TeamLab users from Antarctica so far 🙂 To prove we’re quite determined in our “Conquer the world” campaign, we’d like to share TeamLab development plans for the near future.
Currently, our prime priority is the CRM module. To release this long-cherished toolset as soon as possible, we’ve made a decision firstly to introduce it in beta. This version will include several sections: Companies, Contacts, Deals, Tasks, Reports and personal to-do-list. You’ll be able to keep and track communication history, sort information according to assigned tags and generate reports. We’ve taken care of 37signals immigrants adding the ability to import data from Highrise. There’ll be some other pretty small features like currency conversion and customized forms for contacts, companies and deals.
Among the other upcoming enhancements you’ll be glad to see a long-waited calendar and the mobile version of the Project module. Tasks will be improved: users will be able to set tasks priority or assign them to several employees. We’re also working on TeamLab API, Gantt charts and Email integrated system.
A lot of things to do. But thanks to your support and constant feedback we’re full of enthusiasm and energy. The best is yet to come…
