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.
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.”

Building systems in Coda helped Appetiser shift to a fully remote team without losing steam.
“For new team members, we created, 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.””
