The popular task management, Workast, has $1.85 million in a seed round of funding with a vision of expanding its Slack based task management toolkit to few other messaging platforms as well. The funding was led by Greycroft Partners.
Workast’s Co Founder and CEO Guillermo Gette says, “Built on top of Slack we have been able to acquire users very quickly. One out of every seven Slack paying companies are using us.”
“Work management tools haven’t changed much in the past 10 years and many current products continue to push a model that hasn’t adapted to the way individuals and teams work and communicate in the workplace,” he said in a statement. “With Workast, we are providing a more effective and efficient platform to track the continuous interactions between individuals and teams — across all channels, from messaging to email to voice and video — in a meaningful and manageable way.”
Gette believes that the success of his company is largely attributed to its focus on conversational interfaces and building off that success; expect to see Workast integrate its task management features with Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, Stripe and even Cisco’s chat products.
Gette also revealed that Workast will soon roll out a premium label product, which will include reports and analytics, unlimited integrations, guest accounts, templates, custom fields and more
