Task Management Software Brightpod

Task Management Software BrightpodWho are we?

We are the team that provides marketers a stress free way to manage all their marketing campaigns in one place. We are behind the major task management and collaboration tool for marketing teams – Brightpod.

Our founder is Sahil Parikh and we’re a team of 7. We’re also the team that created the popular project management tool, DeskAway.

Whom do we cater to?

We cater to all kinds of marketing agencies and marketing teams across the world.

What do we offer to our consumers?

We provide marketers with a task management & collaboration tool that cuts through the chaos in their lives and helps them focus on what they do best– growing their client’s business.

Brightpod helps teams plan campaigns, track progress and collaborate among themselves.

What motivated us to start up?

We found a large number of marketing and creative teams using DeskAway, which is a general purpose project management tool, and hence never completely perfect for them. A lot of feature requests for a tool with marketing centric features gave us an opportunity to design an app for marketing and creative teams.

Clients are spending more and more money on Digital marketing, as a result of which marketing firms have more work than they can handle. This is where Brightpod comes in.

What’s in a name?

“Bright” stands for “smart” and “pod” stands for a “close group, workplace etc.”. Do you notice the brain in the logo? :)

How do we see Social Media?

Social Media is way for people to connect and for brands to personalize the way their customers perceive them. There’s no question about brands being on social media anymore. It’s a necessity that all brands should embrace!

Our What The **** Moment

Someone once asked me if “Brightpod” was related to an Apple product.

Industry as we foresee

The future of the Indian Social Media industry is promising. As more and more brands become aware of the benefits of social media and start monitoring what their customers say, I see a rise of expert social media marketers and agencies to help them make the most of the social web. I also see consumers using more of social media to connect with brands and to get recommendations about the best products and services and users to demand better customer service on social media.
