Microsoft 365 is an excellent tool for collaborating, managing documents, tasks, meetings, and much more. However, productive remote work requires stitching these elements into daily routines to reduce time spent in meetings and working on status reports, all while somehow improving visibility into your team's culture and work.
That's why we built Vineforce: to empower Microsoft 365 subscribers to accomplish personal and team goals faster by working more productively no matter where they are.
Becoming the #1 platform for teams that want to work anywhere requires a team culture supporting and rewarding personal growth. Before focusing on products or customers, we strive to build a culture that empowers people to become the best version of themselves through lifelong learning, teamwork, and eastery of their craft.
Vineforce guides you through a planning process that results in a balanced, goal-focused agenda of tasks, scheduled breaks, and meetings aggregated from all your Microsoft tools.
Vineforce provides a simple framework for creating and managing your goals with built-in success tracking that seamlessly integrates with Microsoft 365.
Vineforce helps build trust by providing insights into your team activities so you can monitor morale and potential obstacles to progress and identify issues before they become a problem.
Vineforce makes it easy to track successes by guiding you through an end-of-day routine with gentle reminders to update progress made on planned tasks and goals.
It all began at a Florida cleaning company back in 2006.
That year, our CEO Jason Murray took over a small cleaning company in dire need of a reliable quoting system for the sales team. He turned to Elance, the premier freelancing platform now called Upwork, to find developers to build the system. Finding the developers was easy; however, managing them was an entirely different matter.
By 2012, Jason was remotely working as a Microsoft SharePoint consultant, but he was still struggling to stay connected and aligned with his team. As a manager, it was a challenge. But as an entrepreneur, it was a business opportunity.
He pulled together a team from all over the world to get access to the best talent, and our global remote team stretching from Miami to India, Pakistan, and the Philippines was born. We grew. But so did our challenges:
Setting clear and measurable company, team, and individual goals
Allowing team members to see what their coworkers were working on
Enforcing the discipline of daily planning and aligning work to goals
Centralizing access to all their work, no matter which tools they used
Tracking progress without the need for meetings or status reports
We built Vineforce to solve these challenges and help our team become more productive while giving us the ability to work and recruit team members from anywhere.
