Trello Customer Testimonial

We have a Trello board for our front desk student staff, giving them the info they need to answer questions, and giving them projects to do that are daily, weekly, monthly etc. Our social media intern has a Trello board, which maps out the themes of the weeks of our academic calendar. And for our staff, everyone loves Trello, using it for our own project management and to-do lists.

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. "
