1. To build a piece of software that supports all the basic operational needs of an early stage, software-as-a-service (SaaS) start-up. We believe a single, integrated platform is a simpler solution than supporting a handful of software solutions, giving your team more time to focus on growing your business.
2. To prove that there's a better way to build a business - one that results in more engaged employees, who are more fulfilled in both their personal and professional lives. As we build Outseta we're embracing self management and the other principles shared in Frederic Laloux's Reinventing Organizations. If you don't have time to read the book, you can watch an overview video of its core principles here, or read more on our blog.
Software today is, increasingly, a commodity. The companies that we work with tend to be those who care deeply about who they do business with, and those that the items below resonate with. Here are some additional links to help you figure out what we're all about.
