Wimi was founded in 2010 by Antoine Duboscq (22 years of experience in financial and strategical management) and Lionel Roux (15 years of experience in consulting management and technological engineering) following an observation : modern tools significantly improved individual productivity, but a great loss of time and energy remains when it comes to teamwork.
Wimi is a digital productivity solution integrating a range of essential services for teamwork: document sharing and Drive, task management, chat & channels, calendars, videoconferences… Gathered in dedicated unified workspaces. The company has 3 big ambitions which materialize in Wimi: • Increase teamwork productivity -> Time savings on documents and operational information access -> Decrease of inefficiencies -> Access in mobility -> Activities’ reporting and management • Accelerate high priority projects -> Projects performed in “agile” mode -> Instantaneous access to projects’ information -> Dynamic task distribution, comments -> Reporting and notifications • Animate, communicate and motivate teams -> Simplicity, conviviality -> Video and audioconferences integrated tools -> Screen sharing, chat, call -> Sharing and team communication spaces Wimi is consistent with a real wish of centralizing and make project workspaces more accessible in order to contribute to the improvement of the collective productivity. Today, Wimi is one of the rarest company in the world owning a documents synchronization technology (Drive) along with a full range of other teamwork services. Wimi is the European leader in the worldwide ranking GetApp (Gartner Group).
In 2015, the global market for company apps was at 7.1bn $ in terms of sales. The market for company collaboration software is estimated at 70M $ for 2019.
