Atlassian recently announced it has acquired Trello, one of the fastest growing project management services available with over 19M users. In a blog announcing the acquisition, Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes said: “Trello will become an important part of the Atlassian portfolio, offering a fun new way for teams to organize the often messy range of information that feeds into great teamwork.”While the Atlassian Suite originated to help software teams build better software in a more collaborative way, Trello has targeted business teams. Bringing these two together empowers organizations to break down silos and bring all teams together in the pursuit of the company mission.
At ServiceRocket, we help organizations all over the world learn, implement, and adopt disruptive technologies to connect people, break down silos, and help organizations create collaborative cultures. We partner with companies like Atlassian and Workplace by Facebook because we believe in the power to connect employees and create an open, collaborative environments that help teams get more done.
Just as people have different communication styles, and teams learn and operate differently, organizations also need different tools and platforms for collaboration. Efficiency and alignment are the key outcomes. As a recent Atlassian study on business productivity indicates, in most organizations, a staggering 60% or less of work time is actually spent productively. Better, more flexible work systems free up your teams’ cycles to do actual meaningful work.
Today’s companies need modern, collaborative tools that empower people to communicate, share, and work better together. Platforms like the Atlassian Suite + Trello, and Workplace are helping businesses become more connected and more effective. ServiceRocket is proud to create technology including add-ons to increase the impact of these platforms, as well as training and implementation services to help today’s teams get more from Atlassian and Workplace.
With Trello joining the Atlassian family, we look forward to helping more teams get more from their productivity solutions in order to work more effectively.
