The Swedish cloud collaboration company focuses on challenging established software giants to gain additional market share. Projectplace’s new CEO rolls up his sleeves to further increase adoption and expand into new markets.     

Projectplace, the European leader in online project collaboration, today announced that the company has passed the monumental mark of 700,000 registered users worldwide. This is yet another milestone in the history of Projectplace. Despite hearing the odd champagne cork popping through its Stockholm headquarters, the Projectplace team is not resting on its laurels and already setting its sight on the next goal: breaking the 1 million mark in 2013. Imminent recruitment, both in R&D and in sales, and a focus on making the service even more intuitive and user friendly, will help Projectplace move from strength to strength its market-leading position.

“This is a significant achievement, made possible by the entire team that has been extremely committed to turning Projectplace into the European leader in online project collaboration” said Johan Zetterström, CEO at Projectplace. “This is just the beginning. Our plan is to supercharge and expand our leading position in the field of online collaboration through substantial increases our R&D and sales activity.”

When Projectplace was a small startup in the late nineties, businesses were still struggling to use the web for business collaboration. The young team had a vision to move all work routines to an online environment for collaboration in which projects could thrive and was influential in encouraging a wide range of organisations to adopt cloud collaboration.

“The market is now mature and cloud-based work solutions are becoming the norm. This is reflected by the speed in which our user base has grown recently,” explains Johan Zetterström. “Projectplace has been a pioneer in its space and has laid the groundwork for online collaboration. Now we have reached a phase in which the real work begins: fighting off established software giants who want to get in on defining the new way of working online.”
