Workast is a task management tool for Slack that allows teams to create and assign tasks easily and set due dates without leaving the chat interface.
With Workast, Slack channels and conversations are turned into to-do lists, so teams don't have to waste time setting up projects or boards.
After the success of their Slack-based bot, Workast was looking to create a stand-alone web application from scratch. We designed and developed an MVP that included key features like user settings, task details, to-do lists, and a dashboard.
We developed the web app using Angular and Node. The new iteration of the product mainly focused on helping users quickly see their tasks and manage workloads from one place.
Currently, Workast has over 150,000 app installations and more than 44K active users. After releasing the MVP to the market, the startup raised a $2M funding round in January 2018.
