Specific characteristics

ClickUp is a beautifully intuitive project management platform that eliminates the need of using more than one tool for your organization’s workflow. ClickUp’s core purpose is to remove the frustrations, inefficiencies, and disconnect caused by the current project management ecosystem - and to accomplish this with beautifully intuitive design.

Competitive advantages

Built for teams of all sizes and industries, ClickUp’s fully customizable and proprietary features make it a must-have for agile teams that want to keep everything from design to development in one organized place.

The platform allows deep modularity in the form of add-ons called ‘Clickups’, allowing rich customization for each team individually. Proprietary features such as Assigning Comments and mocking up images make it an incredibly effective tool for keeping everyone on the same page. ClickUp’s flagship feature lies in the three Dashboards: List, Box, and Board. Each Dashboard provides a fundamentally different way of viewing and managing tasks, making both high level and low level perspectives viable in one intuitive location.

With ClickUp’s modularity, it’s finally possible to have a Sales project with a simple interface and a Development project with a complex workflow - all in one place.
