Trello Case Study

Sprout Social


This case study of Sprout Social is based on a September 2020 survey of Trello customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“My team used to have weekly stand-ups to chat through the progress of our work. Now that we’ve switched to a remote environment we naturally have more virtual meetings. We’ve had to reevaluate how we spend our time and with the use of Trello, can now limit the number of meetings we have regarding specific projects. We can turn to Trello for updates rather than hopping into meetings. "

Trello Customer Testimonial

It is a volatile, interactive, agile shared digital workspace where everything happens in real-time. Trello provides a transparent space to manage not only work items but the communications between teams as well. The notification system and integrations are great – all that in a fast, fun, and user-friendly way. Absolute winner to me.
