The challenge

When software company Pigment completed its Series B funding round, demand for its software solution grew, resulting in the organization tripling its headcount in six months. However, as is often the case, such rapid growth presented significant human resources challenges.

Pigment was already leveraging best-of-breed technology in each department, such as Salesforce, Outreach and Gong for its sales team. Still, the company needed one central platform for the entire organization to use for collaboration.

Pigment also realized that as new employees joined the team, its inefficient onboarding process was hindering everyone’s success. It needed to streamline onboarding by moving from back-and-forth emails, Slack messages, and static Notion checklists to a faster, more effective process.

"We wanted to make sure that all the different teams shared a common platform where we could work together and nothing fell through the cracks. We wanted to maintain high efficiency in our day-to-day operations as we scaled up in a remote first and global environment."

Solutions with ClickUp

A central hub for company-wide collaboration that scales

As Pigment searched for the right solution to centralize collaboration for the entire organization, a few key criteria were top of mind. Pigment needed a fast-performing, cost-effective platform that offered integrations with other tools, as well as features to assign tasks to multiple team members.

Before selecting ClickUp, Pigment evaluated other tools such as Monday.com and Asana. Unlike the other contenders, ClickUp checked all of the boxes.
