10 Zaps to Get Your Office Pumped


Google, JIRA, Zendesk, Trinet, Slack, Github, Marketo, Twitter – this is just a small sampling of the MANY applications we use on a day to day basis here at Hoopla. And I’m sure your office is no different… Companies nowadays use a large variety of applications, each of them specializing in their own niche market, and every one just as important to your business as the next. Unfortunately, not everyone or even every department has visibility into these different applications; so the sales team doesn’t know how much work went into building a new feature and the engineers might not know how many people are signing up for free trials of the awesome product they helped build. Well, what if I told you Hoopla has a created a way to bring all this data and all these milestones to light directly onto your office TVs? Amazing, right?? Well, it’s a simple as a Zap!
