A UK software developer has secured £400,000 in funding for a new cloud-based project and task management app titled Allthings.
The company, also known as Allthings, was founded in 2013 by David Hay, Dee Ward and Ralph Hasselgren, who developed the app as a replacement for a simple to-do list aimed at individuals at home or at work. It can also be used as a project and task management tool for organisations or teams.
Allthings – which can be downloaded as a free version as well as two paid-for versions (Allthings Pro and Allthings Team) – was developed on a ‘shoestring budget’ and launched in June 2013.
It built up 4,000 users by word of mouth and the firm recently secured an additional £400,000 investment.
The app lets individuals manage their own workloads, can help managers and team leaders plan, prioritise and allocate tasks and track individual and team progress against deadlines. It gives real-time data on individual and team capacity, features a clear overview and the dashboard can be customised to suit each user via its Quick Lists feature. This shows what is most important to them or what they need to get done today, tomorrow or this week.
“Allthings transforms the way people and teams work”, said co-founder and director David Hay. “Our users tell us it increases communication and collaboration across teams, within companies and between businesses and their suppliers. And one of the real benefits our users love is that it does this whilst virtually eliminating email traffic."
