How Appetiser grew from $2M to $8M in 2 years with Coda

Appetiser's founder and Director, Jamie Shostak, shares his experience using Coda to grow Australia’s top app development company.
THE CHALLENGE:
Appetiser needed fully customizable software that could support them through growth.
“We found ourselves in a moment where we had to solve for remote collaboration, a team that was growing exponentially, and a never-ending list of targets to hit.”

“There are some great one-size-fits-all tools out there, but we needed something that could be moulded to Appetiser’s unique strategy. “
Jamie Shostak, Founder & Director of
Remote growth must-haves
⚡ Lightning-speed onboarding
↪️ Adaptability
✏️ Ability to assign tasks, track goals, and manage projects

Also considered
Airtable, Asana, Trello, and JIRA
”Asana and Airtable were too rigid . . . you had to fit their box. Whatever was going to work for us wasn’t going to come out of a box.”

THE SOLUTION:
Building systems in Coda helped Appetiser shift to a fully remote team without losing steam.
“For new team members, we created onboarding.io, a Coda doc that helped us automate and track onboarding. In that particular case, Coda made it possible to reduce a one-week process to just three days while increasing effectiveness.
We also worked with Coda to customize a system that gave the team an overview of how they were spending their time on OKRs, and what results they were getting on a task level.
There’s a distinct advantage to working with a tool that’s as agile as your team. Coda allowed us to meet the challenges of a growing company and ever-expanding team head-on.””
