Hey PH! This launch is a big step in a 12 year long dream. As frustrated young project managers, we were driven crazy by how hard it was to just get work done together, and to see overall progress. I'm beyond proud to share our answer - our existing project management platform now has powerful *predictive* analytics, based on all your Hive data. That means you don't just know who's busy this week, but who will be overloaded next week. We'll be working hard to keep making Hive a better platform to work in. Your comments and questions are super welcome and help us do that! Thanks in advance for your feedback πŸ™ John and the Hive team P.S. We are excited to offer the first 100 visitors who sign up for Hive with the code "PRODUCTHUNT" a free customized dashboard so they can get exactly the graphs they want.

@johnfurneaux Do you think that tools like this become most useful at a certain scale? e.g. when your team is >50

@abadesi Great question. I thought that would be true, but then we switched on the 'individual' dashboard, and it is *fascinating*. I found out that I am most productive on a Wednesday, and need to do *much* better on Monday mornings! Even in a team of 5 people, it can be super helpful to see how long it is taking to get things done, and where the bottlenecks are. Is that useful?

@rrhoover @abadesi Happy to give you a red carpet tour! πŸ‘‘
@johnfurneaux @abadesi tbh, I'm allergic to project management tools as I've found many teams waste time adopting new processes in search of a problem (if that makes sense). Sometimes the best tools are the most lightweight. But I'm open minded! :)

I was getting swarmed with so many different platforms to coordinate work within my team... Well, that was before I found Hive! Now, my team is able to access all our tasks and files in one place. There, we have the ability to keep track on the progress we've made and delegate work more efficiently.

My only quibble previously was that the messaging was a little slow. However, after reaching out to the support team (They reply super fast btw), I was given the assurance of an improvement in performance some time during the week. To my surprise, I noticed an improvement the very next day!

I would recommend Hive to anyone out there who is in search of a productivity tool to replace all the clunky apps that they are currently buried in.

Pros:

Easy to get onboard. Improved team productivity and all my apps were now in one place!

Cons:

The ones I found were fixed by the Support & Engineering Team within a day!

Our company has only been using Hive for a short period of time, but it's already proven an invaluable tool!

It's been fantastic in cutting down admin time and getting people up to speed across projects. The only issue we've faced so far is transferring the mass of data and projects from old management tools across to Hive, but now that everything is in place I wouldn't think of looking back.

I would recommend Hive to any business juggling multiple projects and want everything stored in one simple app.

Pros:

Quick and easy set up; easy to master;

Cons:

Transferring projects from old obsolete programs

On-boarding with Hive was incredibly easy. Especially as a busy employee, you want to rely on tools that make your workflow easier and quicker and not add another layer of learning. I loved how I didn't have to toggle between a million different tabs and the communication between cross-office, global teams was made seamless!

Pros:

Easy to onboard, communication is super easy and it's great for tracking project status

Cons:

None!

Adopted Hive for the back end of our brokerage a few months ago and already I cant imagine doing my job without it. Extremely malleable, allowing you to get exactly what you need out of it without being overly difficult to use or confusing. On top of that I seriously can not speak highly enough of the support team who manage to impress me with each interaction I have with them.
