Mendix, the leading agile application platform-as-a-service company, today launches sprintr™, the first social collaboration space dedicated to assisting employees and project teams across the enterprise. Sprintr combines the best of social collaboration and project management tools to facilitate employee engagement and co-creation. Now in beta, project teams no longer have to cope with heavyweight, administrative project management tools.
Sprintr is simple and easy to use; signing-up takes less than 10-seconds using a corporate email address. After joining, users can create projects, send invitations to fellow stakeholders and start a conversation. Project pages are furnished with a name, description and a logo, and members can stay up-to-date, share and discuss thoughts on a project page.
“Sprintr simplifies the collaboration process by breaking down traditional organizational boundaries,” said Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix. “In most organizations, project teams are geographically dispersed, resulting in inefficient communication, adding complexity to any project. Sprintr eliminates this problem and facilitates true business collaboration online.”
Team members can also establish milestones within projects and use planning tools to manage them. As each milestone is added, completed or changed, team members are notified and kept up-to-date. Sprintr organizes thoughts and ideas so project teams don’t have to.
Faster Feedback, Forever
With sprintr, teams can organize end-user feedback and incorporate it directly into their planning. This user-driven functionality enables teams to get instant feedback and course-correct quickly, resulting in better business practices and happier customers.
For software teams, a feedback widget containing a simple pop-up form can be easily embedded in any website or web-based application. This widget enables teams to get instant user feedback on any application. Stakeholders can then evaluate the feedback, via a built-in voting mechanism and either reject it, put it on hold or add it to the project backlog.
