Efficiently manage tasks at scale

Assign, execute and verify tasks on a large scale with one app | Sebastian Starzynski - Taketask

How is Taketask helping people?

Sebastian: Taketask is a task management application where we allow the users to design the processes. It’s a no-code platform, but the important thing, it’s an application for mostly deskless workers. Not for people that work not in front of a computer, but they work somewhere in the field, in the store, in a factory, or this kind of job, you know? So we mostly use smartphones to communicate the tasks, guidelines, and other uses we send to our client’s employees.

What are the Taketask solutions?

Sebastian: The field where we are operating, the deskless workers, is a field that is not well saturated with this kind of digitization tools because most of the tools are dedicated to office workers. So this is, this is the first thing. The other thing is that in those fields, there are a lot of changes at the time, the processes are changing, and the people are also changing. There is lower retention. So people need to adjust to this new environment.

And, of course, this is stressful for them because when you are a new employee, it always happens that you forget about something. So we give these employees a place where they can see the guidelines very user-friendly and then report it to the managers so they know what’s going on. And the employees feel safe and secure that they know where they need to go when they do not know what to do next or how to do so.

What are your current industries?

Sebastian: We are mostly in retail. Our largest clients are in retail. We have implemented it in other industries like production, such as food quality in restaurants and some smaller companies. That’s because we started mostly with big enterprise clients. Now we also entered some smaller companies with our new SaaS offering. And these are companies like installation companies.

What are the best Taketask features?

Sebastian: I think where we stand out is hyper-personalization. We understand that the office work is much more unified and stable. Each shop is different, and each place where our clients and employees go is different, and we allow for digitizing those differences. And then, based on those differences in the system, craft the tasks properly. This is very hard to achieve because the world can be different in different places, but I think we can achieve it quite well.

What is the price for Taketask?

Sebastian: We have plans for enterprises and SMBs. The biggest difference is that for enterprises, it’s a separate system. They are paying for the servers, and thus they also pay less for the system and the user. In the SaaS version, the server costs are included in the pricing. So there are three plans. The starter one is $14. Then there is another for $25 and another one for $30. Generally, it’s based on what kind of features the company needs so we can adjust their pricing.

What are the Taketask integrations?

Sebastian: We do not have embedded integrations for someone who can plug into Google Calendar, but we have integrations for our enterprise clients. These are many different systems. We do it for enterprise clients because, with small clients, the possibilities of different software that you could integrate with task management apps are enormous.

You can import an Excel file with all the details like characteristics of your locations, your users, the parameters of equipment you are using, et cetera. The problem is that if you have this personalization, it is really hard to define what will be the data source. That’s why Excel is the most convenient and flexible tool, and that’s why we use it.

How competitive is your industry?

Sebastian: There are a lot of companies doing this. If you define a market leader by the number of users, companies, and revenue, we are not the market leader. We started a bit later and took it a bit more difficult to make a low-code application because we are not a low-code. We are at completely no code. So our clients do not need IT guys to deliver different processes.

And that in enterprise clients, it’s unique. Maybe for SaaS, it’s normal, but for enterprise clients, this is something new. And so we decided to go for this very robust system; unfortunately, we did not have enough funds to boost our sales. Now we are getting there, too, to some revenue level of a hundred Ks where we can get the series A round, and then we will be able to boost ourselves faster.

What is your story, Sebastian?

Sebastian: I’m a serial entrepreneur. I founded my first company when I was a student. It was a market research agency. During that time, companies were not called startups; they were simply companies and had to earn from the beginning. So I started to utilize the resources I had, which were my college friends, who were going to their cities, and they were collecting data from me and getting back after with the questionnaires, and I was getting some people to type it in. Then, I sold the service, which is how I built the first company.

The second one was a consulting company. We were selling pieces of training from the professors from our university. You know, this was the very beginning of the real capitalist economy in Poland. I was a student with no capital or experience but I founded four companies during my studies. In one of them, I started implementing and getting subway restaurants to Poland, a completely different business. But then, I focused on B2B and IT services.

What’s your favorite software?

Sebastian: I mostly work with CRM, and I use Pipedrive. Some friends are coming to me and asking me how to utilize more from Pipedrive, so I’m showing them. Although I know I do not know all the hacks over there, for my particular need, it’s enough. I generally like software. I was at a conference yesterday, and they were sharing regular business cards; I got like 40 of them. So I needed to find software to scan business cards, so I just downloaded an app, and now I have new software for scanning business cards.
