Roy Mann is a Co-Founder and the CEO of monday.com.
Today’s a big day. We’ve begun a new chapter of our platform – monday 2.0 – announcing that it is a work operating system (Work OS), a new software category that addresses the needs of our modern way of working.
Why do teams need a Work OS?
The future of work is already here. We’re all using new, advanced technologies at work. We have tools for nearly every need – and they’re available in a snap.
Yet we’re still working the same old way.
Work discussions have moved to chat and messaging apps. Rather than writing and receiving letters, we’re writing and receiving hundreds of emails daily. Spreadsheets fill the gaps in between our specialized tools. Long meetings? Still there, though some are now via video conference.
The picture’s no different for enterprises, where teams are still using clunky and rigid systems – like ERPs, CRMs, and SCMs.
We’re still bogged down, struggling to keep up with the speed of business.
So why are we still working this way?
Because the tools we are using can’t manage every process and initiative and are typically disjointed, they are slowing us down. This creates what we call a “whitespace”, consisting of ill-managed or unmanaged work.
Actually, here at monday.com, we’ve learned from our teams (we have more than 100,000) that more than 50 percent of their work used to live in this “whitespace”.
Imagine what all of us could do if we took control of this whitespace? We could be more engaged as a team, make decisions based on data, not guesses, and do the work that requires our talents.
Eliminating the Whitespace
A Work OS eliminates the whitespace.
It’s the foundation upon which any team can create their own custom application to suit their exact needs, allowing them to manage every workflow, project or process – simply and code-free.
The Work OS provides teams with a set of building blocks, which they can drag and drop to create applications that: capture and process data, automate manual grunt work, connect between tools to bridge data silos, and analyze important insights, at a glance.
Instead of status meetings, you click a button on your Work OS. Instead of emails, you communicate in context on your Work OS. Instead of switching between tools, all your data lives in your Work OS. Instead of time-consuming and error-prone repetitive tasks, you automate them with your Work OS. And you have no use for spreadsheets.
And that’s why today, we are marking a huge milestone: monday 2.0, the evolution of monday.com into a Work OS.
With monday.com as a Work OS, teams can now focus on the work that makes the biggest impact, because teams aren’t scrambling to manage the work in their whitespace.
A Work OS for every organization
The monday 2.0 platform release is our most significant move yet to empower every team in every organization to exceed their best in all aspects of their work.
Now, every team can create the applications it needs for everyday work. And when several teams in an organization use monday.com, they can achieve even more together.
As part of this new release, we’re also excited to introduce monday Apps, which opens monday.com for developers to build whatever they need on top of the platform.Developers will now have infinite possibilities to create and package custom widgets, workflows, integrations, and more for internal or commercial use. monday Apps will open up a myriad of new functionalities for any business to totally eliminate their whitespace.
The future of work is already here – and with monday 2.0, it’s more accessible to us all.
