The results

The problem

Appetiser needed fully customizable software that could support them through growth. They were solving for remote collaboration, a team that was growing exponentially, and a never-ending list of targets to hit. Shostak considered Asana, Airtable, Trello, and JIRA, but found that pre-boxed solutions were too rigid for their needs.
There are some great one-size-fits-all tools out there, but we needed something that could be moulded to Appetiser’s unique strategy.

The solution

Building systems in Coda helped Appetiser shift to a fully remote team without losing steam. Shostak worked with Coda to build a doc for automating and tracking new member onboarding, which reduced a one-week process to a three-day one without compromising effectiveness. They also customized an OKR system to help with time management and task-level results.

Appetiser built an agile system that reflected their team's unique strategy.

There’s a distinct advantage to working with a tool that’s as agile as your team. Coda allowed us to meet the challenges of a growing company and ever-expanding team head-on.
