How would you pitch a tech product to your grandmother?

Please pick a product and pitch it to your grandmother (yes, yours! the context matters). I'm looking for good ways of explaining products simply. P.S. love you, grandma 😘

    The project management tool that grows with you

    A tool on the internet that you can use to keep track of your tasks and share your work with people.

    • Using Zenkit for a few months now and can't see myself going back to my old tool. The team has done a phenominal job of building an application that addresses the need of power users, light users, and everything in between.

    • Edited my review to reflect the awesome response time to problem I encountered. Incredible, hard working team and their app reflects the care and dedication they have put into Zenkit. Keep up the great work, Zenkit!

    Dailybot for Slack

    Product management bot for daily stand-up meetings on Slack

    You know grandma how you have to wake up every morning and write those refrigerator notes of tasks that need to be completed... and you put it on the refrigerator so everyone can see... this tool is like that refrigerator for us at work.. we write notes and provide updates on our tasks... and instead of sticking it onto the refrigerator, we put it up on this "wall"....
    • DailyBot is an App that integrates with Slack, enabling teams members to send daily reports about what you are currently working on, what did you do on the previous work day and whether you are facing any blockers. DailyBot eliminates the distractions and loss of productivity that are an inherent aspect of synchronous daily stand-ups by facilitating team members to report on their progress at their own convenience.

      This feature alone, makes DailyBot an extremely valuable tool for remote teams, where different time zones turns daily stand-up meetings into an inconvenience for some, depending on the time of the day.

      But DailyBot is not only about stand-up meetings or focused on geographically distributed teams, DailyBot is a toolkit of productivity enhacements that improves teams from the inside out, fostering communication and broadening the visibility of your companies processes.

      Good product, I like how it integrates seamlessly with Slack. The summary and how it's displayed inside a channel is what I like the most. Started using it at my team in order to complement our daily standup, and as an attempt to have them sooner in the morning.

    Hey grandma! Do you remember those distant relatives who used to come over for a few days and ended up staying for a month? Well, at last you can set a fair price for hosting them!

    Easily edit database data and structure

    Grandma, sometimes you cannot remember things, so just write everything down in a notebook, keep it safe. Then call your assistant TablePlus to read the book for you, and rewrite it if you want. Well, actually, TablePlus is an app and it works on computer only.

    "Have I eaten my breakfast?", grandma you don't have to ask this question no more cuz I have download this app for to track you daily acitivity!
    • I have enjoyed using this app for the past month but can't justify the subscription price until the app more significantly differentiates itself from competitors. (There needs to be a lot more integrations to justify the price.)

      Also, I believe that you should completely own your own data, and I don't like how CSV export is a "premium" feature.

      Other than that, the UI is very clean, and I think other habit trackers need to embrace "automated" goal tracking like this.

    • Developing good habits is one of the foundations of a good life, and it deserves well designed tools. I believe Nirow it's one of those tools and I look very much forward to its development. It supports a variety of ways to track habits both manually and automatically, fitting plenty of scenarios. There is no excuse to not to try it and improve your life 1 habit at a time ;)

    FollowUp Personal CRM

    The personal CRM for Gmail

    Remind yourself of who to follow up with and why, without having to use a fancy expensive piece of software for sales people.
    • angela
      angelaProduct Manager

      I've been using this product for 2 months to keep track of people that I want to continue to engage with in my network personally. For people I don't talk to frequently, I set a desired follow-up amount of time (2 weeks, 1 month, 3 months, etc) and then I never have to worry about "forgetting" to keep in touch with people.

      The app creates events on your Google Calendar and sends an email when you haven't been in touch with someone past the follow-up timeframe you set.

      One caveat for me is that it works on Gmail rather than Inbox, and with events and emails more than Tasks.

    • being lazy as I am this is first CRM that I use on day to day basis. no need to login into other system, everything is handy and simple, feature list is simple but powerful

    "Grandma, rather than waiting for my Skype call, I can submit daily activity reports. I can check which items mom cooked for us, send pictures of my room to prove I cleaned it, and share any information you wish to know about my day-to-day activities. I can even report things about mom if you want, for the small fee of freshly baked cookies ;-)"

      Such a huuuuuuuge fan! I use RealtimeBoard for so many things - both in and out of work. From client projects to internal business planning to operation processes to personal planning, I can't stop raving about how much I love RTB to everyone I know. I'm also super impressed by the constant product iterations and feature updates that are constantly being released. Bravo, awesome work guys, I'm absolutely gushing but it's well deserved.

      I'm not a designer, but I use RTB a lot to create simple sketches for some of my ideas on our products with comprehensive text descriptions. One image worths of thousand words! My sketches helps our designers and developers to quickly understand what I'm talking about and how my ideas connect to other products (thanks to unlimited workspace). I used to use Google Presentations for these purposes before, but RTB just stolen my heart! Good luck to the RTB team! Great product deserves fast organic growth! :)
