Slack to Jira integration.

Nextup is a Slack Jira integration designed to save time, increase productivity, and foster effective communication in teams.

Nextup’s team came up with their idea when they first tried Slack. Surprised to learn that integration to Jira was not available, they decided to build an integration they could use themselves. After they built the product, they thought other teams might want to use it, and released a public beta. 

In March 2017 they came out of beta, and today they have teams all over the world using the product and telling how they love using it.

The challenge

Nextup needed to scale their development resources. They needed a flexible and smart bot for managing meetings. Also, there were plenty of tasks connected to their existing products’ development.

Generally, the goals were to increase their team’s throughput, integrating us, and to launch a new product.
