Trello Marks 10 Millionth User, Launches Business Class

Project management platform Trello hit a huge milestone recently when it logged its 10 millionth user. This milestone came at the same time as the launch of their Business Class, a new tool for teams.

Business Class offers all new product and backend features, including tools to surface activity and important info, key integrations with services including Salesforce, Github, Google Drive, and Slack. These features should make it easier for teams to use Trello to collaborate and more effectively manage projects and priorities.

Trello was founded in 2011 by Michael Pryor (no relation…that I’m aware) and Joel Spolsky.  It offers a visual, flexible, and collaborative way to manage projects and stay organized. They currently count teams from Conde Nast, Lonely Planet, Instacart, and Expedia among their clients.

“Instacart has a lot of moving parts, and the entire company relies heavily on Trello to share ideas, track issues in product, and collaborate across teams,” said Max Mullen, co-founder of Instacart, in a statement.  “We’ve used Trello since founding the company, and our use of the product has evolved as the company has grown, which is one of the main reasons we’re such big fans.”

Business Class maximizes the benefits for teams with enhanced control, and insight into team activity across all boards. New features include:

  • Board collections: All new user interface for Business Class aggregates and highlights boards, allowing users to filter based on number of members, categories, and most starred.
  • Integrations (Power-Ups): Trello now plugs into the broader enterprise ecosystem with a platform that streamlines the workflow between essential services including Slack, Box, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Dropbox, Twitter, Evernote, Salesforce, Github, Mailchimp, Help Scout, and
  • Priority support: Priority response times from Trello’s support team.

“There’s no substitute for the sense of clarity and control you get when you see a big, intimidating project broken down into individual, achievable goals,” said Michael Pryor, CEO of Trello in a statement.  “We’ve built the new Business Class based on the specific needs of teams who are rapidly adopting Trello as a central tool for their daily workflows.”

The launch of Trello Business Class was made possible, in part, by a $10.3M funding round in July 2014 led by Index Ventures and Spark Capital. A video highlighting the new Business Class features can be found here.
