Before starting ClickUp, the team behind the startup says they encountered dozens of products which suffered from major performance issues.
With web-based applications, the startup believes, slow load times can be lethal to online businesses and require tremendous investment to prevent.
Zeb Evans, CEO at ClickUp, said, “When you have a project running past due, are 15 minutes late for a meeting, and then have to wait 30 seconds to get something basic to load… it’s enough to make anybody go insane. We wanted to minimize frustration and build something that’s a breeze to use under stressful conditions, which is crucial for this industry.”
The fast performance, while important in preventing frustration, is also a major feature in normal settings, giving users a taste of efficiency they couldn’t otherwise experience.
Zeb said, “Once you’ve tasted an ultra-high speed version of something it really changes things. For instance, after you got your hands on high-speed internet, you could never possibly go back to dial-up – it’s not a matter of inconvenience, it’s just totally unusable.”
Angular 2 was picked to be the framework for the project after a multi-week process of discussion and testing by the developers and management early in the project’s life.
