UpWave

Productivity platform for managing teams, projects and tasks

4.7/5 (52 reviews)

UpWave Overview

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.

Manage development projects spanning iOS, server and web. Also use a board for hiring.

Pros

The interface is clear, versatile and doesn’t try to do too much. The recent templates were very useful. We use it to manage an iPhone app development and release along with hiring and some web development.

Cons

I’d like to use it at work but unlike competitors like Asana, UpWave isn’t know at all to IT so they are afraid of it. That’s not really a criticism of the software though. Sometimes I’d do ba a little more control, especially with comleteted tasks for managing up.

UpWave is a better looking Trello

UpWave is a solid contender to Trello, and the advantage I see is that UpWave can have the flexibility of having boards align any way you want, something that I found useful for having an important board. Notifications were solid on UpWave as well, giving me notifications within the app and to my e-mail. Would highly recommend UpWave to anyone looking for a Kanban type setup for their company's to-do management.

Pros

UpWave is a lot like trello and does it well when it comes to Kanban To-Do Boards. It's dead simple to use, just create a board(s) and then create tasks which are cards. Simply move them between the boards to track progress. The design of UpWave is super minimal, which is strikingly pleasant to look at if you're working within UpWave all throughout the day. Beyond the UX/UI and design, I really like how UpWave can align boards in whichever way you want, something that Trello does not have. You can align boards to the right and left, and also have one on the bottom, this might be useful for having eyes on a bug board, or support ticket board, or another board that should have all people have eyes on it throughout the day.

Cons

UpWave is super simple to use, and nothing to dislike.

Nothing but good. All systems have their issues however they fix them in a timely manner.

Pros

It's fast, easy to use and rather scale-able. The system supports multiple languages of which is quite important for a global team and the level of product support provided in my experience is unparalleled compared against other solutions of this nature.

Cons

It has been a rough few years as it has developed. There are/have been a few bugs along the way however when reported get resolved rather quickly.

We write very few emails (less to print is better also for environment), we use it as a sort of chat so every communication is very quick. We have a general control of the production at at glance even when outside or no at the office.

Pros

I looked for softwares to take production sites under control; write less emails; have a board where everyone could add ideas but also troubles faced at work... I found everything on UpWave; then let me say something about customer service: they are so kind and ready to solve every trouble we met.

Cons

Seriously,NOTHING! Every time I had a problem I wrote to customer service and they solved it quickly
