Grouptrail is a project management platform with a twist: they are Portland-based, eco-friendly, built by a certified B Corporation, and they have a cycling team. Why do they have a cycling team? Something about a wheel in their logo and they like to ride bikes. We also like to ride bikes, so we decided to help sponsor their cycling team (we even join them a few times a year for their recreational rides).
Grouptrail isn’t just project management for work; it’s a way to keep track of all your projects underneath all the hats you wear: work, home, school, play—whatever it is. It’s the perfect solution, say, if you build eco-friendly picture frames during the week and race cyclocross on the weekend, or if you’re a full-time employed college student doing freelance writing on the side.
But as good as the Grouptrail product is by itself, our real love is for the people behind it and the philosophy they bring to their work. As a certified B Corporation, home-brewed right here in Portland, they embody the same triple bottom line policy that we do here at Plywerk: people, planet, and profit. They also share our commitment to sustainability. Furthermore, Grouptrail is available in both free and paid versions, and with the paid version, a portion of your monthly dues is donated to charity.
