The first Happy Tools product is a Happy Schedule, a calendar-based time management app.
The WordPress parent company Automattic has launched Happy Tools for companies with globally distributed personnel.
The company is planning to turn internal tools into actual products with new work collaboration tools. The initial Happy Tools product is a Happy Schedule. It is a calendar-based time management app built to assist in managing the scheduling of employees and handling the support queries raised inside the organization.
Happy Schedule is similar to Google Calendar instead of SAP product. For example, you can select and drag it to create an event or reminder. You won’t be required to fill it during the start and end time.
Matt Wondra, Automattic product lead for Happy Tools, told TechCrunch,
“Ideas about releasing our internal tools have been kicking around Automattic for years, but it’s been about finding the right moment and the right product to lead with. When we started building Happy Schedule a year ago we realized that designing a tool for our own scheduling needs also filled a clear gap in the [workforce management] landscape.”
Further this year, Automattic will start releasing other products to the mix that includes a “customer chat tool”. It will also feature integration with Happy Schedule.
She further added,
“No other product out there gave us the flexibility and visibility we needed to comfortably schedule a globally distributed team. Since it was a greenfield internal project, we could engineer it from the ground up with public release in mind. And it just made sense to launch Happy Tools first into an industry we know so well — customer support.”
Automattic, the enterprise behind WooCommerce, Wordpress.com, and Jetpack, has launched a new suite of products focused on the ‘future of work’. It continues to release new products for communication, collaboration and work throughout the years.
