Great Teams Love Status Hero
High performing teams from all over the world use Status Hero to stay in sync, communicate effectively, exceed their goals, and continuously improve. Here's what a few of them have to say about us.
Our team is distributed across three continents and ten time zones, so using Status Hero for our daily status sharing enables everyone to have normal lives, instead of having daily standups way early or way late in the day. Team members say they appreciate starting their day seeing everyone else's accomplishments and goals, and ending it with sharing their own. We're pretty good at collaborating asynchronously on specific issues, and Status Hero helps the team see the bigger picture of what's happening.
Status Hero has been a great add for improving transparency and productivity at PeerStreet. As a distributed team, we're able to have better insights into progress and blockers without the inconvenience, inefficiency and constant technical issues of a scheduled conference meeting across multiple timezones.
Status Hero revolutionized the way we conduct stand-ups! What was once 15 minutes of ceremony for us is now the most effective 5-10 minutes of our day. Team members can collaborate in a clear and consistent way while our managers and stakeholders can easily identify challenges and roadblocks. Everyone comes prepared and everyone is in the know with Status Hero.
As a 100% remote company with teams spread all over the world, Status Hero has proved invaluable in connecting everyone and providing the transparency that's vital in keeping everyone informed and focused on their goals. It's quickly become a core component of our operations strategy.
Status Hero is a quick, efficient tool for our team to check in and share priorities without impacting busy, daily schedules. It is the perfect solution for days when we are not meeting. As a supervisor I have appreciated the ability to roll up all of my staff's task lists and requests for assistance in one place.
Before, we just had updates as piles of text in a Slack channel that were really hard to go back through. Freeing up that information has been the biggest benefit for us. Great work with the UX - the whole app really does a good job of exposing functionality without getting in the way.
Status Hero is a perfect tool to plan your day as a team. It takes only a minute of time every day to check-in, and every team member knows exactly what his colleagues doing which really helped to boost our collaboration and prevent some "you should've told me!" situations.
Status Hero is our virtual stand-up and accountability space that keeps the team connected working remote and in different cities. No need to ramble on daily calls, it gives the opportunity to reflect on individual goals, while also offering visibility into co-workers' activities as a means to reach out and provide support when needed.
Status Hero helps our growing team stay up-to-date on what's in progress without drawing it out in yet another meeting. Team members can see who is blocked and engage in conversations about specific work items without the productivity impact you'd see if that occurred in a meeting, and the GitHub integration is fantastic for seeing how check-ins relate to their report.
Our team is spread out across multiple locations managing multiple projects. Sometimes getting everyone together at the same time for a stand up is a challenge. Status hero makes a virtual check in a piece of cake by integrating with the tools that are already part of our remote workflow. We can update at our desk or on the go and keep the rest of the team in the loop.
As the number of agile teams grew in our organization, our weekly scrum of scrums was taking too much time and not providing enough depth. Status Hero allowed us to streamline that process, provide greater feedback between teams and allow for that information to be shared with our entire engineering organization.
Status Hero has helped us truly embrace flexible hours by allowing us to move to asynchronous status reporting, and completely removing the need for daily in-person status update meetings. I have also seen a tremendous uptick in participation from my team since moving to Status Hero. The fact is that we like using the tool and it shows in our willingness to partake. We tried various tools in the past, but nothing comes close to the experience we have with Status Hero.

While setting up a new international team of engineers in three different countries, StatusHero helped in bringing transparency, visibility and trust in between the new members of the team. For managers, leads and architects, it provides an invaluable daily overview (and history) of the team's work, complementing physical standups.

Status hero helps us aggregate important data from the existing systems our developers rely on such as Jira & Github to the non-technical team members in our organization to give a clearer picture of the team's daily progress without requiring the devs to attend or fill out a standup. This has been a time saver for everyone that uses Status Hero and the cost is well worth the increased productivity time.
8 West Consulting have clients all over the world and status hero is a great way for us to ensure that our development team and product owners stay close to each others work. In some cases we have zero office overlap, but Status Hero allows everyone on both sides of the project to start their day knowing exactly where the project is.
As a newly hired CTO, who was moving his team to a more distributed workspace, I was looking for ways to minimize meetings, but increase team communication. Status Hero is a great way to keep updated across our engineering and product teams (onsite and remote), as well as see a summary of daily code checkins and JIRA updates.
With our team members all having to work from home Status Hero was able to help everyone keep up with what was happening on a day to day basis. The added feature of SMS reminders really helped us as we often are out at clients and being able to quickly update everyone from your phone is amazing!
For us, it is key to have transparency and accountability in our production process. Status Hero is helping us cut through the project management noise, helping us organize the day and have clarity on how leadership can collaborate with an extended team in different time zones. Status Hero has become a very important tool for us and fundamental for our success.
As a startup CEO I was already struggling with lack of visibility to what my team is working on pre-Corona, but now working remotely it would have been super hard, had we not discovered Status Hero. Now each person spends less than a minute on answering the Slack bot and I get a full overview of what people are up to and how they're feeling.
We're a 100% remote company (and always have been), and we've been searching for a means to track accountability and provide inter-project insight and transparency. Status Hero is just what we needed, and that it integrates so seamlessly with Slack makes it a home run.
Status Hero has been absolutely crucial as Sym adapts to the conditions of COVID-19. With teammates spread across four timezones, I don't know how we'd function without it! Daily standup calls are impractical, and it's difficult to remember to send manual updates; we already live in Slack all day so this is perfect.
