UpWave

Productivity platform for managing teams, projects and tasks

About UpWave

Upwave is a productivity platform designed to help enterprise teams collaborate on projects, innovation processes and daily tasks. Users are able to manage tasks and projects in a visual manner using intuitive visual boards that are based on sticky notes, and easily drag and drop tasks between columns to visualize progress. Upwave keeps all information in one place and makes it easily accessible for everyone in your team on all devices. Users can also easily invite external collaborators.

Upwave enables users to define their own board structure with columns, rows and cards in order to organize what each team member is doing. Cards allow users to describe a task or an idea, and complex tasks can be divided into small subtasks with deadlines, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks. Users can communicate in one place and assign tasks, comment, upload files and get real-time feedback from the entire team. Workspace admins are able to create teams for different departments, project groups, external suppliers, and more, and set permissions for secure involvement of outside parties such as customers, contractors, or partners.

Upwave provides clear overviews over the activity level and engagement across teams to help keep track of task completion over time, the number of tasks started vs completed, and to see which projects have the highest activity level. The team calendar shows which tasks are being worked on, what’s coming up next, and who’s responsible. Upwave integrates with popular third-party tools including Microsoft, G Suite, Dropbox, Zapier, Adobe Creative Cloud and Slack.

One of the most user friendly task management tools out there!

We were looking for a tool to keep a track of all our tasks and the person responsible for them. Now we are on top of our delevirables and we can even estimate how much time a simillar task would take in the future.

Pros

The software is extremly easy to figure out and intuitive. Tasks can be assigned to an individual or to a team in a few clicks. Their neat UI with different color theme for tasks of different priority make it very easy to find the most pressing tasks first. We now have a much better idea of what our employees are spending their time on and their effeciency at completing tasks

Cons

The platform is quite simple and easy to use, and this is one of its strengths. However, it does lead to it missing out on features that are available with more established players like Asana.

We use the product for day-to-day projects internally and towards clients across a wide variety of different project types. Upwave have preformed great in all areas where we have used it, and we are looking forward to the upcoming features as well.

Pros

The flexibility to create all the boards that you like, and the ability to combine custom rows and columns makes the tool flexible and clean. Also, some great templates add to the impression as well

Cons

The lack of a GANTT-chart option and a portfolio overview solution is kind of limiting, but I know the team is working on this.

Pros

It offers a way to visualize your project progress in a really good manner.

The price you pay can be a really subjective matter especially if you are coming from the likes of basecamp to Upwave.

Upwave became the one stop shop for collaboration and tracking progress on projects. Also, the customer service team has been very helpful, offering tips so we are able to maximize functionality and productivity.

Pros

Upwave has replaced all of our other organizational software tools, and it has become a center for continuous improvement and innovation. The clean interface promotes accountability and drives issue resolution. Also, it is the perfect tool for managing stakeholder engagement. There is never any confusion because of channels of communication. As a result, our project teams have become much more efficient and productive.

Cons

The customer service team at Upwave addressed any complaints I had, tailoring the software to meet the needs of our team.

I am absolutely satisfied with Upwave! I have never used such a programme previously and was amazed by having my personal and work plans so accurately shown in cards and marked with colours. It is much better, than writing your plans in countless diaries or notebooks, making notes, which are usually lost among many pages or forgotten. Upwave provides me with opportunity to visualize and systemize our team tasks, and now it is for everyone obvious, what one has to do. When you put a tick for something done, it gives moral satisfaction and motivation to move on. Upwave is my first experience of using such an app, however I am already delighted with it and grateful to the whole staff of the company for a high quality product, friendly attitude towards students with their university projects and overall support and helpfulness. I will use Upwave willingly in my professional activity and would be glad to recommend it to my friends and colleagues.

Pros

Successful team management and work progress is based on comprehensive visualization, which Upwave enables you to manage easily and effectively. Smart design, a wide range of photos for your boards, stylish colours and tinctures help to create a unique workspace, which is esthetically enjoyable. The system is easy to deal with and the mechanism of changing cards or other details is simple. Especially convenient is the connection to other services, such as Google Drive, Google Docs, etc. It is really greater to have everything in one app, vivid and organized online, than to buy millions of notebooks or write long messages in chats with tasks for your team members. The idea with ticks and columns to show the progress makes users feel satisfied with the results and observe the completion level of the work. Notifications are also included in the system and can be send via e-mail to remind team members of their deadlines.

Cons

As the head of my small student team, which is occupied with publishing a faculty newspaper, I can say, that this app has no cons. All functions and features I need to organize our joint timetable are available. May be, in the future it would be useful to add more languages, especially Russian. I speak English, but not so good at computer terms, while their understanding is necessary to install everything correctly. That's why the process of deployment took a little bit more time. Although it is anyway not a problem, as Upwave managers are always ready to help and answer all the questions.
