We give executives simple, clear, beautiful visibility into the status of everything important their people are working on. And by doing this, we substantially reduce information overload for executives.

UpdateZen, a mobile-first status reporting solution, provides CEOs, executives and business owners the easiest way to stay updated on the key things their people are working on. In so doing, UpdateZen significantly reduces information overload for these executives. UpdateZen has launched today and is offering a free 30-day trial to new users. The application significantly reduces the amount of non-critical information executives and team leaders routinely receive, and presents them only what they need to know.
UpdateZen’s simple interface consolidates all project updates and presents them in one easy place. A team leader can easily view all of his or her team members, as well as each project the team member is responsible for. Team leaders can sort through updates by team member, by project, or only view projects with new updates. UpdateZen caps each update at 250 characters so that only what is absolutely essential is communicated, and busy executives can avoid lengthy email threads, chat boxes, cumbersome shared spreadsheets and weekly status reports.
“While there are great project management and team collaboration solutions out there, the one user they do not successfully engage is the executive. The reason is that these solutions are far too involved, too complex, and include way more information than the typical executive wants or needs. UpdateZen is the antithesis of these solutions," Paul Ruderman, UpdateZen’s founder and CEO, said. “They do everything. We do one thing and we do it really well. We simplify status reporting. That’s it. We give executives simple, clear, beautiful visibility into the status of everything important their people are working on. And by doing this, we substantially reduce information overload for executives.”
As new updates are posted, team leaders easily receive and acknowledge them with one tap, enabling their team members to keep things moving forward. After acknowledging updates, team leaders have the option of leaving feedback, also capped at 250 characters – keeping all communication concise and instant. Additionally, a team member’s update can be seen and acknowledged by multiple team leaders, allowing all executives and managers regular visibility into a specific team member’s updates.
UpdateZen was developed to simplify status reporting in the office and brings consumer-level design and ease-of-use to its enterprise-grade application. The user interface is minimal, beautiful and easy to navigate. No training is required. It is available as both an iPhone app and on the web, and will soon be available as a native Android app as well. UpdateZen is available beginning today, and is offering the first 1,000 customers a 25 percent lifetime discount. Monthly subscriptions are $14.99, while a yearly subscription is $149.99 and includes two free months.
