Hey '19: Another year of making work easier with Troops

By Dan on Dec 30, 2019 7:14:30 PM

When we started Troops we told people we wanted to make work easy. Turns out, when you’re building a company from scratch, it’s anything but easy. But over the past year, the Troops team kept marching on towards our mission and we’ve made great progress with hundreds of partners and thousands of people using Troops each and every day.

At Troops, we still want to make work easy and make work more human. As we enter a new decade, more than ever, the tools we use at work and the software we interact with to do our jobs should adapt to humans instead of requiring humans to adapt to outdated, hard to use software.
