"For over 15 years I have been in roles of managing people and projects from product development, collaboration partnerships, to M&A and investments at companies like Unilever, Agilent, Eli Lilly, and Omnicell. While I thrived in working with and managing multi-functional, multi-organizational teams — effective collaboration was always a struggle. Chasing people down by phone and emails, hosting 5AM calls, and coordinating teams across the globe became obstacles to getting work done. The tools available were static and siloed - which weren’t much help.
I imagined a solution that can facilitate real-time collaboration, offer interdepartmental visibility, and centralize all relevant information for easy access for me and my teams. This became the inspiration for me to create ManageUp PRM.
