How Keypup helps development agencies

Development agencies, design agencies and freelancers often have to work on their clients development tracking instances. Keypup consolidates all of them. Discover how this is a massive helper.

Team WeDesign
Team WeDesign. They are part of a development & design agency. They work on multiple client accounts at the same time and have many client-driven development activities to run in parallel.
Gabbie is the team lead

They work on their different clients' tools such as ...

Of course, they need to access specific individual Jira sites and GitHub repositories for every single client.

3 client projects are in progress. All hands on deck!

The team has to switch constantly between the Jira sites of the 3 clients to update progress and see requests and work to do.
They also need to switch between the 3 different GitHub repositories to produce the code and action Pull Requests.

Everyone is working on the 3 projects. Tracking all progress and activities is uneasy across a total of 6 different app instances.

Organizing and optimizing resourcing is hard!

Paul is the engineering manager. He struggles with allocating the limited resources of the team so that all client projects are delivered on time.

Because he cannot see a consolidated view of all activities required across all 3 client projects, he cannot properly manage priorities and due dates and spends his time juggling resources across all projects.

Tracking progress and achieving deadlines is hardeous

Gabbie faces the same situation, but has to explain delays to her clients. She is unable to provide firm, reliable deadlines to the clients, because she has no consolidated view of all activities across her team, as an ensemble.

She knows every project is impacted by the others, because their resources are not unlimited.

But she doesn't know exactly how, to what extent and the overall consequences for each client.

The developers struggle to meet all requirements, on-time and with good quality

Sanjit and her colleague Mina are overwhelmed. They keep jumping across all 3 projects to try and make them all progress, but priorities keep piling up, and they feel more like firefighters than developers.

In the end, they are late on almost all items, and the worst to them is that they rush in producing poor-quality code.

They also duplicate some work because they address all 3 client projects items separately and sequentially.

They have almost no visibility on their total workload and on all tasks they need to perform. They can only see tasks and activities for each client in their respective tool instance.
Working with Keypup looks like...
Everyone sees progress at a glance across all projects.

The team connects all client instances to their Keypup platform

By doing so, the team does not see 3 different projects in 3 different Jira instances and 3 different Github instances anymore.

They see all their activities, Pull Requests, Issues, discussions and comments at once in their one Keypup platform.

Organizing and optimizing resourcing is simple!

Paul, the engineering manager, can now allocate and optimize resources quite easily, because he can see all activities that need to be performed at once, without needing to jump between instances.

Through the Keypup board, he can also check the activity loads of all team members individually and re-allocate tasks accordingly, taking into account at once all clients and all projects.

Tracking progress and achieving deadlines is easier

With all client projects gathered on the one platform, Gabbie can now see all progress made in parallel at a glance.

This way, she has a consolidated view of all activities, and a proper view of all deadlines, progress and status.

The Keypup Agile board is also updated automatically as developers progress and merge Pull Requests, so Gabbie has a real-time view of all development items.

The developers can focus on delivering items properly

Sanjit and Mina now see the entire pipeline of activities to perform. This way, they can organize their work properly, consolidate activities, and address all priorities smartly having a view of all work to perform.

The Priority Inbox also allows them to identify clearly and automatically how many issues a given Pull Request fixes. This is very convenient to help them reduce the pipe of issues in the most optimized manner.

Delivery is organized, clear and Sanjit and Mina do not have to bother updating the tools with their progress - Keypup does it automatically from their repositories.

Better organization, faster delivery... the team grows!

With a more fluid delivery across the team, it's easier for Gabbie and Paul to schedule the work, forecast the workload and ... take on more clients and more projects!

As a result, the team is now growing and welcoming Evan as a new developer!
