[Josh Lee] That’s Swit

빠른 답변을 주고받기 힘든 이메일과 업무용으로는 기능이 아쉬운 카카오톡 대신, 효율적인 프로젝트 진행과 성과 향상을 위해 심플스텝스는 Swit을 사용하기 시작했습니다. Swit은 클라우드 기반 협업 도구로, 스윗한 기능들로 멀리있는 팀원들과의 원화한 커뮤니케이션 및 프로젝트 진행을 서포트해줍니다. Swit의 창업자 Josh Lee님이 Swit과 심플스텝스의 피트너쉽에 대해 이야기해 주셨습니다.


An Interview with Josh Lee, the founder of Swit. by Kat Choi

Swit is the love-child of a marriage between Slack and Trello. It is a cutting-edge team communication and high-performance task management tool born to help you love your work and the team.

Josh Lee, the founder of Swit, started his career as an English teacher in Korea. Dissatisfied with the standardized national curriculum which focuses on societal objectives without a much-needed conversation on the authentic purpose of student autonomy, he developed a user-friendly web-based app to help teachers create unique teaching materials equipped for student’s individual learning levels. Years later, this became the underlying technology for developing Swit.

Q. So, Swit! What is Swit and how did you develop it?

J. I used to be a heavy user of Slack integrating it with multiple apps like Trello and Monday.com. But I found using multiple tools on different platforms caused overlapped features with no interaction among the integrated products. This disjoint multi-app environment reduced team productivity and created unnecessary communication. Hence, Swit was born to bring everything you need to get things done together in one convenient place and to make your work collaboration a bit sweeter. Since most people spend 60% of their awake time at work, Swit was created to help you love working with your team.

[Hisun Kim] Let’s CoDo!

지난달 Personal Planning 2020의 스피커 김희선님 회사에서 개발하신 CoDo 앱에서는 social factor 를 이용해 목표를 성취하는 것을 돕고 있습니다.CoDo 에서는 accountability partner 들이랑 매일, 매주의 진행상황을 트래킹 하고 같이 힘내라 응원해줄 수 있어요. 작은 성취까지도 함께 축하하는 문화를 통해, 혼자서는 하기 힘들었던 일들을 루틴으로 만들어 줍니다. CoDo 앱이 만들어지게 된 계기가 궁금하지 않으신가요?


An interview with Hisun Kim, founder and CEO of Wildseed Tech. by Kat Choi

At the beginning of the year, you are all pumped up to set a goal that you are sure to achieve, from losing weight to reading a book a month to eating healthier. A month later, your life catches up with you and your New Year’s resolutions are long forgotten. Hisun Kim, the founder and CEO of Wildseed Tech, is a couch potato turned marathon junkie with the help of a simple but powerful social app called CoDo.

According to a study on accountability from the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD), you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed, you will increase your chances of success by up to 95%. CoDo app does just that, increase your chance of achieving your goals.

Q. What is the CoDo App? How did you come up with it?
H. Each of us may have experienced that it is tough to exert consistent daily effort in something, however eager we were at the beginning. The CoDo App uses the power of social to help you overcome mental blocks and achieve your goals. It has many features for you and a few trusted friends to check in your goal progress together, celebrate each step together, and stay on the course together. I transformed myself from a couch potato to a three-time half-marathon finisher in 2019, thanks to online friends’ support and encouragement.

“목표와 계획을 세우고 실패하는 것은 누구나 마찬가지예요. 누구에게나 어려운 일이죠. 한 가지 실행력을 높일 수 있는 방법이 있다면 나와 비슷한 목표를 가진 사람과 함께 하는 것입니다. 누군가와 함께 이야기하고, 서로 잘 하고 있나 체크해 주면 성공률이 훨씬 높아져요. Accountability 를 높이는 관계를 맺는 거죠.”  -김희선
