Upwave overview

What is Upwave?

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.

Review Source: GetApp

We use the product for day-to-day projects internally and towards clients across a wide variety of different project types. Upwave have preformed great in all areas where we have used it, and we are looking forward to the upcoming features as well.

Pros
The flexibility to create all the boards that you like, and the ability to combine custom rows and columns makes the tool flexible and clean. Also, some great templates add to the impression as well

Cons
The lack of a GANTT-chart option and a portfolio overview solution is kind of limiting, but I know the team is working on this.

Upwave became the one stop shop for collaboration and tracking progress on projects. Also, the customer service team has been very helpful, offering tips so we are able to maximize functionality and productivity.

Pros
Upwave has replaced all of our other organizational software tools, and it has become a center for continuous improvement and innovation. The clean interface promotes accountability and drives issue resolution. Also, it is the perfect tool for managing stakeholder engagement. There is never any confusion because of channels of communication. As a result, our project teams have become much more efficient and productive.

Cons
The customer service team at Upwave addressed any complaints I had, tailoring the software to meet the needs of our team.

Pros
It offers a way to visualize your project progress in a really good manner.

Cons
The price you pay can be a really subjective matter especially if you are coming from the likes of basecamp to Upwave.

One of the most user friendly task management tools out there!

Review Source: Capterra

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.
