Clarizen

Empowering employees, powering projects

Jul 29, 2014


 

Clarizen Chief Executive Officer Avinoam Nowogrodski

Clarizen has unveiled a game changing solution to project management. Based on its robust growth around the world, the San Mateo-based company has attracted a host of early adopters in only nine years.

Developed mainly to raise productivity and profitability, Clarizen’s software can be found powering projects within more than 2,500 organizations in 76 countries across the globe, including more than a quarter of Fortune 500 companies.

“There are three microtrends happening in the market right now supporting Clarizen’s growth. The first trend is that enterprises have moved to using cloud computing. The second trend is social networking for enterprises. We see a lot of promise in this area because we are basically bringing a new type of collaboration for the workplace that drives results,” Chief Executive Office Avinoam Nowogrdski explained.

“Thirdly, we are also in the era of user empowerment, wherein users have a voice in the company. We provide a platform where employees can collaborate together with coworkers and truly be impactful for the company,” Nowogrodski added.

In Japan, where the ethos of kaizen (continuous improvement) is deeply ingrained, award-winning Clarizen has experienced huge success and is close to finalizing joint ventures with several companies in the country.

“We have partnerships in Singapore and other countries in the Asia Pacific. However, our current partnerships and potential partnerships in Japan are the most essential to Clarizen’s future,” Nowogrodski stressed.
