ZenHub Launches a Focused Experience for Software Project Managers – PR Newswire (press release)

Top vendor on GitHub Marketplace extends its lead as the collaboration tool of choice for startups and fast-moving enterprise software teams.  

VANCOUVER, July 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – ZenHub, the world’s leading agile project management solution for GitHub users, has launched ZenHub PM, a focused experience designed for software project managers.

ZenHub succeeds in the crowded market of project management tools by providing a focused, developer-first experience built into GitHub and GitHub Enterprise. By staying close to code, ZenHub’s project management tools ensure accurate and up-to-date data. ZenHub PM makes this information more accessible to project managers who are unfamiliar with GitHub by providing an easier-to-navigate option that doesn’t require them to learn a new tool.

“Some of our customers have thousands of developers on the ZenHub platform, using our Chrome and Firefox extensions to enrich their GitHub experience and bring project management close to code. ZenHub PM gives project managers their own focused portal while ensuring access to ZenHub and GitHub data that is always accurate and up-to-date.” Matt Butler, co-founder of ZenHub.

As attracting and retaining software developers becomes increasingly important for businesses, the world’s best companies are empowering high-performance teams to select best-of-breed tools and tactics, rapidly displacing incumbents. With the majority of ZenHub customers coming from competitors, user evangelism has enabled ZenHub to compete with industry behemoths like Atlassian, a suite of software collaboration and project management tools with a $7.8B market cap.

Since ZenHub’s launch in 2014, over 1,200 paying businesses—including NASA JPL, Docker, and Microsoft—have joined the platform. Company revenue has tripled in the last year alone.

ZenHub’s platform partner, GitHub, has been a similar beneficiary of this growth and upheaval, culminating most recently in the launch of the GitHub Marketplace, where ZenHub has steadily held a top spot as a featured integration.

“GitHub is home to millions of developers, using a variety of platforms. The latest release from ZenHub is a big leap forward and makes GitHub more accessible which allows teams to collaborate more effectively.” – Joe Wadcan, Head of Business Development, GitHub

Agile practices continue to foster high-performance development at software companies, and the practices are now being adopted in unconventional industries like banking and healthcare. With the average ZenHub customer seeing a 32% increase in company productivity, ZenHub allows even the largest of companies to move as fast as startups.
