ZenHub Enterprise Launches Worldwide; Early Customers Include Imgur, Ikyu, and ICON Health & Fitness

Aug 7, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2015) - ZenHub, the leading provider of GitHub-embedded collaboration and project management tools, announced today the launch of ZenHub Enterprise - the first-ever project management solution to integrate directly into GitHub Enterprise. ZenHub Enterprise was engineered from the ground up to meet the security and deployment requirements of Fortune 500 companies, deployed on-site and behind customers' firewalls. It adds features like task boards, native any-type file uploads, and velocity tracking - directly into the GitHub Enterprise UI. Like GitHub, which in June opened its first non-U.S office in Japan, ZenHub Enterprise has seen rapid traction in both Western and Asian markets. Ikyu, a Japanese Expedia-like publicly-traded corporation, stated that ZenHub Enterprise "radically reduced" company spend. Yusuke Sasajima, Chief Engineer at Ikyu.com, attributes the savings to tool consolidation: "ZenHub Enterprise eliminates our need for third-party tools outside of GitHub. " Others prize the product's ability to promote productivity via collaboration. Imgur, the Andreessen Horowitz-backed photo sharing website, accumulates 60 billion+ image views per month. They adopted ZenHub Enterprise to encourage collaboration across their rapidly growing team. Imgur Director of Engineering Brian Kassouf said, "ZenHub Enterprise helps us move fast and meet the needs of Imgur's massive growth. " Product traction has also been seen in the fitness and manufacturing industry, with brands like ICON Health & Fitness (the world's largest developer and marketer of fitness equipment) as early customers. With portfolio brands including Reebok, iFit, and Gold's Gym, ICON was seeking tighter integration between their distributed teams. "ZenHub Enterprise increased productivity, preserving our competitive edge as an industry leader," said Chase Brammer, Head of iFit Product Development at ICON Health and Fitness, citing the product's ability to increase visibility into project status as a factor of increased output. ZenHub, the web-hosted product, has been proven to deliver massive return on investment for customers like Facebook, NBC, Sony, and Microsoft. While typically this product category gains most traction from management, ZenHub is remarkably popular with engineers - a cohort accounting for 63% of the company's customers. By allowing the entire team to collaborate within GitHub, ZenHub enables developers to avoid wasted time spent 'context switching' to different environments to update product roadmaps. The product saves an average of ~1.5 hours per day, per user, the equivalent of 40 workdays per year. Not only do customers experience high return on investment with ZenHub, but they also achieve greater returns on their GitHub investment: a customer survey showed that GitHub usage nearly doubled after ZenHub adoption. ZenHub is funded by Axiom Zen , an international startup foundry that creates, scales and invests in companies on the cutting edge of technology. Contact Information
