Here at Timyo, we have a great team that just happens to be spread out across the globe. Since we don’t always have the luxury of just poking our heads over a cubicle and shouting a request to our teammates, we need to make sure that we are very clear with our communications. When we started building Timyo we wanted to solve many of email’s problems. We are very busy people and just like every other busy person out there, we receive (and send) a ton of email every day. So, while we have been busy solidifying Timyo’s core features, we… Continue reading Timyo helps teams be more productive
There has been a lot of news lately about “AI”, “Machine Learning”, and “Deep Learning” – okay, so maybe not in “everyday” news, but in the news that I (and many other geeks like me) follow, and there are huge steps being made in these areas of study. It’s an exciting time to put your trust in robots! …or at least cede some control to our inevitable robot overlords. The addition of a simple tool But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. These robots still have some serious learning and tweaking to do before they can think for… Continue reading How our last update helps your email with personalization and automation
In our last two posts, we took a look at how Timyo can help you work with colleagues, and how it can be used by managers to keep things running smoothly. This week, we’ll look out how Timyo helps you with your most important interactions—those with clients, customers, and other contacts outside of your company. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. If respect is important within the workplace, it is absolutely essential outside of it. Whether you are dealing with potential clients, current customers, or any of the many other people you interact with for your company, nothing conveys respect better than a careful consideration… Continue reading How Timyo Brags About You to Clients (So You Don’t Have To)
When a new app launches, unless it’s from a big company with a very large team and very deep pockets, that app has had many features pared back, simplified, or axed completely. And even if that app was created by a big company, I can pretty much guarantee that it is still missing some features that are planned for future versions. The basics of gardening As the head of a product, you have a vision of what you want your product to be and you can see way down the road to the beautiful flower that you know is going… Continue reading Multiple email accounts, much greater speed and more personalization!
For entrepreneurs, the moment a product goes live brings very specific, intense emotions—not unlike what you experience when your kids are born. On the one hand, a product launch is a culmination, the moment that so many other moments and years have been building toward; on the other, it is a commencement, the beginning of a whole new adventure. For the past two years, we have worked with passion and enthusiasm to write out the first lines of this adventure. Starting from scratch, the blank page, is never easy, but it has been an immensely rewarding experience that we would recommend to… Continue reading Founders’ Note: 3…2….1 Launch!
“When one door closes another door opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” This quote from Alexander Graham Bell, is meant to positive and illustrate the fact that we can’t linger too long in the past, especially when there is a brighter future right in front of us. I just recently learned that the email productivity app, Mailbox, will be shutting down in the near future and to be honest, I was a little shocked. I mean, these guys were acquired… Continue reading What the late Mailbox App scratched, Timyo reaches far beyond
Before jumping into the nitty-gritty details of creating an app, or even the broad strokes of what that app should do, the product vision needs to be very clear. What is the one-sentence reason for this product existing? If this product really takes off, what do you hope to accomplish with it? With Timyo, before we started on anything, we had a very clear vision of what we wanted to accomplish: introduce the notions of time and clarity into email, in order to save time and improve everyone’s lives (well, at least everyone that uses email!). Pretty simple, right? Once… Continue reading How To Do An MVP When An MVP Isn’t Actually Viable
