How Plato saved $200K a year with Coda.

Quang Hoang, CEO at Plato, shares his experience working with Coda.
THE CHALLENGE
Scale a promising startup without breaking the bank.
“We had 3 months of runway left and had to lay off half the team. We were burning through cash with too many SAAS services, and none of them were helping us to be more productive.
I always had the feeling we could achieve more, but we didn’t have the right written culture to scale.”

“We needed to develop our execution path and find product-market fit at the same time, which meant we had to find a way to centralize our workflows and documentation.”

THE SOLUTION
Coda helped Plato optimize their resources and money spent on tools.
“We built an execution path on Coda. Our entire team adopted the new workflows, and the cost savings were huge. Our engineering team standup went from daily 30-40 minute meetings to only 10 minutes by using async updates in a Coda doc.
The time to onboard new team members is less than half, now that we only having to introduce one tool as opposed to 7.”
