At Triggre, we always focus on improving. That is why back in 2017, we launched a whole new version of Triggre. Following this big release we expanded Triggre with a range of cool features over the course of 2018.

Moreover, we have upgraded our trial process to a version that’s even cooler than it was before. All in all, it was a productive year for our team. Please allow us to briefly share our 2018 release highlights!

From creation to launch: Triggre never sits still

In 2018, we have created and launched many interesting things, which we collect under our release notes. But since we just started a fresh, new year, we will list some of our most mention-worthy releases of 2018 below.

  • New document editor
    Quickly create professional, great-looking invoices, inventory lists, letters, and other documents based on the data in your application. Embrace Triggre’s document editor and design your documents in an innovative, easy way.
  • E-mail attachments
    After creating and uploading documents within Triggre, you can attach those documents to your e-mails. This can be PDFs that you made in the document editor, files uploaded by your co-workers or customers or files that you have uploaded before. It’s all possible!
  • Jumping between user flows
    We can image that you’d want to reuse a user flow at a different spot, without recreating all its functionalities from scratch again. In 2018 we have made it possible to jump from one user flow to the other, just by using a simple button.
  • Connection between Triggre and Zapier
    Ever heard of Zapier? It’s a platform , which allows you to connect web applications with each other, in little workflows. Triggre can now connect with Zapier, which means that an action in Triggre can make something happen in another application – and the other way around!
  • Designer lines
    When you design your application, you create connections in your data model and flows. When holding your mouse over items or selecting them, unconnected items will fade out, to provide more insight into the things that are and are not interconnected. Check out our video for an example.

Let the new year begin

We are very proud of the way in which our product continues to help our customers automate their processes. We are confident that we can expand 2018’s positive developments in 2019, and we look forward to another fruitful year!

In my previous two blogs, I discussed Triggre’s highlights and milestones of 2018. In this last blog of our three-part series, I’ll share my outlook on 2019, which – in my view – is very promising!

Positive developments, solid foundation

2018 was marked by positive developments: we have welcomed new customers in industries we hadn’t worked with before, we’ve expanded our team, and there is an ever-growing interest in Triggre, which has led to the growth of our company. All in all, we’ve laid a solid foundation to keep expanding next year.

As for me personally, I’ve been spending an increasing amount of my time on attracting new customers. When I started working at Triggre, this was always what we aimed for. So in the past year, I’ve enjoyed gathering more knowledge in this field and bringing my new experience to my other tasks as well. It allows me to be a better Triggre representative and share a lot of in-depth information with my prospects.

2019: the quest continues

In 2019, I am going to focus even more on attracting and welcoming new customers. This has to do with the increasing interest in Triggre, which I believe is directly related to the growth of our marketing footprint, but also with the fact that our current customers are satisfied and want to stay with us in the long term.

Our high customer satisfaction rate has fueled Triggre’s quest to keep growing. The increase of revenue related to our growth, we plan on investing in our product. Because our idea box is far from empty – there are many options and features we’d still like to enrich Triggre with. Continuous improvement and expansion: that’s what we strive for. Not only in 2019, but for years to come!

P.S.: We’re hosting another introduction session of the Triggre Academy on the 13th of February 2019. Would you like to meet us, find out how our software works or see if it’s something that can help you? Sign up here and we’ll tell you all about it.

2018 has been marked by several milestones and ambitious plans for the new year. In this three-part blog series, I provide my perspective on the past and coming year. Today, part two: hands-on demos, on-the-go applications, and testing Triggre’s security measures in practice.

Building mini-applications on the spot

As a Guide, I often hold demos for potential customers. What I’ve noticed over time is that people understand the concept of Triggre very quickly – they can easily see the benefits of creating an application without the hassle that IT is traditionally associated with.

But I regularly found myself explaining to them where to start. What are the steps that lead to a fully-fledged application? Which steps can you skip when you automate a manual process? Such questions often required further explanation.

Therefore, we switched from merely showing the final result to broadly sharing how and why Triggre works. As of 2018, we follow this with a question: ‘Can you give us a fairly simple example of a (dragging) process you’d like to automate?’ Then, we build a small yet tangible application on the spot to demonstrate how Triggre works in practice. Sometimes, we do this in person – other times, through Skype. Because in 2018, we also started giving more and more online demos.

Automating on-the-go processes

A growing number of people use Triggre on their mobile devices. Our applications have always worked on smartphones and tablets, but the ‘mobile user trend’ has led us to further simplify applications so they are perfectly aligned with mobile users.

For example, one of our customers has made an application with Triggre that allows all on-the-road sales managers to create contracts from clients’ locations. It only takes a few clicks to register the agreement made, put together a contract, and have a PDF version sent to the client automatically through email.

Passed with flying colors

Our first two healthcare customers put Triggre to the test. In healthcare, the handling and security of personal data is more important than in any other industry. It was a great practical test that we passed with flying colors: we didn’t need to make a single adjustment to our software. In other words, our security measures are as thorough as we’d designed them to be!

2018 has been an eventful year for Triggre. In this three-part blog series, I’d like to look back on the highlights and glimpse into the near future – or, 2019 – from my perspective as a Guide. Today, part one: new customers and industries plus considerable growth.

New customers, new industries

In 2018, a range of new customers have embraced Triggre, some in industries which we hadn’t worked with before – for example, a paper factory. This was interesting, because most of our customers want to automate office-based processes.

But as it turns out, the optimization of production and manufacturing processes isn’t all that different – which was emphasized by the car manufacturer that we also welcomed as a new customer. Using Triggre, they have designed a comprehensive application to optimize the entire process of creating electric cars for elderly people: from manufacturing to ordering parts and providing maintenance.

External, internal, and personal growth

With a flow of new customers – some of which approached us on the recommendation of other companies that are using Triggre successfully – we needed an extra Guide, a Triggre expert who helps our customers navigate the process optimization waters.

Triggre’s growth has also affected me personally: besides being a Guide, I took on sales and business development tasks in 2018. This has enabled me to explain even better what Triggre can do in terms of process optimization – knowledge I happily share with both prospects and customers.

Step-by-step learning approach

Another 2018 milestone was the launch of our new product’s trial, which has been requested and used extensively. It teaches users how to create an application with Triggre step by step, providing a clear online explanation. This approach fits perfectly into the philosophy of the Triggre Academy, which was born in conjunction with our new website.

Through the Academy, people learn how to create an application with Triggre based on a step-by-step, hands-on method. Its purpose is to set up a community of creators who can turn great ideas into useful results, using their Triggre backpack of knowledge. After completing the first program, they can either leave it at that or continue to learn. Ultimately, it is possible to reach the level of a Guide and teach others how to use Triggre!
