Updatey focuses on helping you submit project updates and visualize them in a way your team, clients, investors or just about anybody can understand. Whether you’re building a website, constructing a house, launching a new business or writing a Hollywood film. If your project has a start date and people that care about its progress, Updatey would be best for you!
Put simply, the software is so great because it’s all to do with the beautiful simplicity that underpins the Updatey vision and approach to presenting a projects status to those that care. The longer answer though, is that there are a myriad project management tools out there that help people focus on the day-to-day and interact internally as teams. In Updatey’s eyes at-least, this is considered as ‘noise’ and can be difficult for clients and other external stakeholders within a project to understand and properly digest. It is not Updatey’s goal to become a fully fledged project management tool, but instead to work alongside them – bridging the gap between traditional project management tools and the reports/information that clients, and pretty much any project stakeholder (whether an investor, team member, reporter or client), craves but is less often provided with.
Project management tools such as The Big Picture help reduce the pain points of knowing what to get done and who should do it in order to increase employee productivity. Like many project management applications they combine that with project forecasts and timeline lists with action histories in a visual way that is lacking. Updatey says that’s not how we should explain where a project is and does a beautiful job in doing so. The screenshots of their soon to be launched startup show a design focus that makes you want to know more about a projects status.
Currently in beta, Updatey is expected to launch in the near future, but until then you can sign up on their home page for notification.
