We are excited to announce that in recent months we have been optimising UpWave for our Latin American customers and are delighted to be officially launching in the region for spanish and portuguese speakers.
Our minimalist, elegant planning and collaboration tool is pure Scandinavian design at its best. In less than 6 months we have brought UpWave’s unique style and approach to help teams in more than 30 countries across 100s of industries get more done together everyday. And at a price less than half of leading competitors, UpWave’s ease of use and value for money is helping us grow fast in the Latin American market. Our team is already expanding, with new members joining UpWave to help us spread the word across the region and we are all looking forward to meeting more new customers.
A new form of collaborative work is being born in Latin America
The region is going through a digital transformation as businesses adapt to the modern workplace. Latin America and the Caribbean are home to upwards of 57 million SMEs, this recent rise in the region has played a big part in explaining why demand in Latin America for solutions like UpWave is exploding. As IDC FutureScape noted recently, by the end of 2017 one in three CEOs of the Top 3,000 Companies in Latin America will have Digital Transformation at the center of their corporate strategy.
So, why is demand for dedicated tools growing so fast? Bear in mind that 82% of business leaders told us that their use of collaboration tools and technologies has improved time savings since deployment.
UpWave is cloud-based, meaning no matter where you are you can stay up to date in real time with your colleagues. When a tool like UpWave brings value to your your business, it is well worth the money. Teams all over the region are realising this need right now, so we are happy to help.
Online collaboration is only going to become more important, and with UpWave being so easy to use, such great value for money and with a new, Latin American friendly look, we are ready to support businesses across the region make the transition to the future workplace. By 2018, at least 40% of enterprise IT spending in Latin America will be cloud based, reaching more than 50% of all IT Infrastructure, software, services, and technology spending by 2020.
UpWave is was designed to support teams of all shapes and sizes, but small to medium-sized businesses have been a key part of our growth. And these SMBs are becoming a more important part of the global economy than ever before, 38% of worldwide SMB IT products and services revenues coming from this group of companies.
Can a productivity tool improve your life?
In a world where demands on our time seem to be ever increasing, many of these companies and their teams are meeting the same problem, how can you effectively plan and track your work?
The truth is email and spreadsheets were not designed for the modern workplace. There is a growing need for dedicated planning and collaboration tools and UpWave hits the sweet spot between simplicity and power – easy enough for anyone to use, but still powerful enough to run your business. And with a beautiful design that can be customised the way you want, it doesn’t hurt that it’s seriously good looking.
“Our customers around the world tell us they are facing the same problems at work every day. With all these emails and spreadsheets, how can I keep track of who is doing what?” said Kjetil Moløkken Østvold, CEO at UpWave. “UpWave is a platform that gives you a shared perspective across all of your projects. It’s easy enough for anyone to use and flexible enough to support you the way you want to work”
With all of this excitement and opportunity, and such a positive response to UpWave’s Scandinavian style and approach, we are really happy to start bringing a little Nordic zen to our friends across Latin America.
