An Unexpected Product Hunt and Beta List Launch

Artboard 1

We’ve been working on Taskware for the past six months, we still have had a few weeks to go before officially launching & starting our marketing efforts. Last Sunday I got an email: BetaList featured us on their homepage. On Monday someone posted us on ProductHunt and we were featured.

Panic mode. ‘Crap, we’re not ready for this’.

Fortunately, our invite system is still up and running and we’ve started to invite people slowly. We want to make sure our servers handle everything well and our on-boarding experience is ready.

Being Open

Taskware started as an in-house task an team management tool at Ideaware. We shared it with a few of our clients and eventually decided to release it as a SAAS product. The app & experience has evolved since we built the first version a while back.

We’re committed to being very open in terms of what we’re doing and our growth numbers. This is our first open post, of many to come.

The numbers

320 people Signed up from BetaList and around 300 more signed up from ProductHunt. Added to our current waiting list, we now have around 900 invites to give out. Some of you have received them, the rest will be on their way over the next two weeks. We’re now averaging around 25 new signups a day.

First impressions

We’ve received great and honest feedback from our first group of users. We’ve also been working daily on small improvements for everyone to find the interface and experience top-notch.

Who we’re building this for

Taskware is a very easy to use task and team management tool. We’ve tried really hard to think different in terms of all other tools out there. We think startups, agencies and small teams will find Taskware very useful.

Here’s how it works:

What’s next

The team is working hard on wrapping up our last few items on our to-do list and roll out all invites. Everyone on our waiting list will receive a 30-day trial period.

Over the next two weeks we will roll out all invite codes. After which we want to be in touch with you and get your feedback & feature requests.

Our public release date is not set, but we are aiming somewhere over the next 4-5 weeks.

If you want an invite, please request one here.

Thank you!
