How It All Started?
They say, “Necessity is the mother of invention”.
We say, “Technology is the mother of disruption”.
You give us technology and look what we create! Zapty is a tool to disrupt the way productivity and collaboration has been ever imagined. Modern teams and working professionals no longer need traditional systems of communicating. And Zapty as a project management and collaboration software offers a disruptive potential to them making their work easier by managing chaos and also doubling up as a powerful knowledge hub for the team. It was the original brainchild of Arvind Agarwal and Sanjay Shah who realized a need for a comprehensive collaboration tool using a radically different approach very early on. Later, in 2016, Teja Shah, with her past experience around customer success in a successful SaaS company, joined Zapty to add a very customer-centric approach to an otherwise difficult problem. While there are several platforms available for collaboration, there are none that combine it all to give a seamless experience.
The idea took shape when Arvind and Sanjay were still working together on their previous venture, Skelta. Despite being a small team, they were growing at a fast rate (from 5 to a whopping 250 in just 5 years) and communication issues were rampant (excessive internal emails, team communication hassles, etc.). When Skelta got acquired by Invensys, Plc., the collaboration issues became exponential. They were now spread across multiple offices and integration challenges (work flexibility, transparency & accountability in communication, intensive collaboration, etc.) were at a peak. And there was not a single tool to tackle this!
The idea of creating a new platform, which would help them collaborate seamlessly grew stronger. So was born Zapty, with which you can converse in context of whatever you are doing: whether you are chatting with the team or working with a document or a task or even a project or a poll or an approval or any other work pattern and from anywhere. It prioritizes and keeps you on top of only those things that matter the most to you.
