Co-founders Marc Boscher, John Espinoza and Eryk Warren struck gold when they came up with an unconventional solution to the perpetual business problem of cross-team collaboration. SaaS tool use is on the rise, with over 80% of companies using SaaS tools as part of their core business, according to Gartner in 2016. The massive proliferation of online tools to collaborate with causes as many headaches as they solve. Over the course of their incubation with Montreal’s Founder Institute program, the three co-founders created Unito: a project and task management “untool”.
Rather than building another project management or collaboration platform, they chose to create collaboration through easy-to-use app connectors.
Unito was launched to a private beta in October 2015. It featured automatic synchronization between Github, a popular developer tool for tracking code changes, and Wrike a well-known project management tool. Soon after, they connected Asana and Atlassian’s JIRA as well, and they’ve recently added Trello, Basecamp, BitBucket and GitLab to their list of integrations.
Unito will continue to add more integrations and is currently developing key requested features for popular tools like Trello and Asana. They’ve started work on syncing all 9 of their apps to other departmental tools such as Zendesk and Salesforce. Stay tuned to our blog to see what we come up with next.
