During the past decade, there have been several significant changes in the software development process. The workflow and technologies became more complex and team structures as well as communication changed in order to manage complexity. Furthermore, a myriad of tools flushed into the market to help. But what was meant to help, nowadays becomes a problem itself.

While software teams changed into closer-integrated, cross functional product-centric teams, this has not fully arrived on the tooling level, yet. Still, the workflow is spread across a larger number of tools and even though some of these tools already integrate with each other, it takes a lot of manual setup and their functionalities do not sufficiently address the need of tech teams.

While software teams changed into closer-integrated, cross functional product-centric teams, this has not fully arrived on the tooling level, yet. Still, the workflow is spread across a larger number of tools and even though some of these tools already integrate with each other, it takes a lot of manual setup and their functionalities do not sufficiently address the need of tech teams. As a consequence, gathering data and context for coding has become inefficient. Searching for and puzzling together information usually takes much time of developers’ days and wrong or missing information often causes blockers and unnecessary iterations.

This is what we created Zippeo for. It is the first software workflow tool that makes collaboration in software development teams more efficient by employing automation. There is no need to substitute the prevalent tools though. You just integrate the tools you already use and Zippeo starts creating context between the shared data and automates hand-offs between team members.

This is what Zippeo also differentiates from other workflow automation tools such as Zapier. As Zippeo focuses strongly on the software development workflow only, we can leverage the fact that technical assets always have similar relations to each other. UI designs belong to certain tasks or tickets, APIs and frontend components belong to certain UI designs and so on. While other workflow automation tools require burdensome setup as they are not as specific for a certain type of workflow, Zippeo can work for software teams out of the box. Simply plug in the tools you have and Zippeo starts linking your data.
