Below is our recent interview with Eric Lammerding, Senior PR Manager at ClickUp.
Q: What is ClickUp? Briefly describe how it works?
A: ClickUp is an all-in-one productivity platform, and the only tool that can replace all other workplace apps across an organization. ClickUp provides everything from project management to chat, docs, time management, wikis, goals and OKRs, and dashboards, all in one customizable platform. Plus, while most productivity software only works for certain teams and forces users to work how the platform dictates, ClickUp empowers organizations to bring all teams, including development, marketing, sales, finance, design and more, into one platform and lets their users work how and where they want.
Q: Why is ClickUp important? Tell us something more about your workplace productivity platform?
A: ClickUp is all about saving people time. In today’s fast-paced work environment, too often people waste time jumping back and forth between countless workplace tools, and as a result people and businesses are not realizing their true productivity potential. By moving all work into one platform, we are able to save everyone at least one day every week and removing the headaches involved with using too many tools. Plus, with built in automations and integrations, we are able to remove much of the busy work from work, and allow people to focus on projects that really matter to their bottom line, while also freeing up time for everyone to explore new growth opportunities. Finally, we believe the future of work is one in which all teams within an organization are able to work together in one platform, rather than working in silos and trying to connect disparate systems that don’t integrate well together. With a customizable, all-in-one system that works for everyone, businesses of the future (and today) are able to realize unparalleled alignment, efficiency and productivity.
Q: Can you tell us something about your pricing?
A: ClickUp starts out free forever for everyone and we have tiered pricing models from there depending on feature usage, including an Unlimited plan starting at $5 per user per month, a Business plan starting at $9 per user per month, and an Enterprise plan. More details are available on our website at https://clickup.com/pricing.
Q: You’ve recently raised $100,000,000 in Series B funding; can you tell us something more?
A: As the only all-in-one productivity platform that works for all users and all teams, ClickUp is at the forefront of making people, and the world, more productive and efficient. It is our vision that one day all work will live inside of ClickUp, and we are excited about our new $100M Series B funding round, which is helping us achieve this vision even faster than we could have imagined when we first founded ClickUp. With this funding, we are making massive improvements to the product by planning to launch improved versions of nearly every feature we have, and hiring the very best people to help us continue to fulfill our vision.
Q: What are your plans for the future? Do you have any new features in the pipeline?
A: Following our recent $100M Series B announcement, we are continue to build upon our platform and adding several exciting new features to our platform. These include streamlined task relationships for cross-department transparency and work alignment, expanded Goals and ‘Events in ClickUp’ integrations, and a first-of-its-kind native email integration and automation that bring email directly into ClickUp and saves users countless time of having to jump back and forth between their tasks and their emails.
