It’s official: the Elements blog is live
As part of the new identity revealed March 20, for Elements, a Valiantys company, we are launching a new blog to talk about our apps, share user case examples, and provide you a peak behind the scenes of the company. The new identity and product names reflect how our apps work together like building blocks you can assemble to fit your needs in Jira or Confluence. We will of course continue to publish content on the Valiantys blog (after all, we we’re still part of the Valiantys family), but we are excited to create this new space to showcase how our apps augment the functionality of your Atlassian tools. It’s been more than 10 years since we got started, and our growing number of apps and the team that supports them means we were ready for some more space!
How we got started
Valiantys began building Jira plugins in 2008, and one of the first products was VertygoSLA, an app for managing service level agreements in Jira. Four years later, Atlassian acquired the technology from Valiantys and used it to build Jira Service Desk, it’s fastest growing product. We went on to develop four additional apps that help teams work smarter and collaborate in Jira and Confluence. In 2018, we formalized the creation of Valiantys Software, and we are confident in reaching our next goal of becoming one of the top ten editors in the Atlassian ecosystem by 2020. The new Elements brand reflects our identity as a software publisher and is a visual reminder of the connectivity between our different apps.
Jira and Confluence apps: Smart tools to boost your team’s productivity
Today, Elements sells three apps for Jira: Connect (formerly nFeed), Copy & Sync (formerly Exocet), and Checklist; and one app for Confluence: Spreadsheet.
A new name, some new faces, but the same Agile team
Back in February 2018 Alexandre Alquier described on the Valiantys blog how our team works and our Agile process. In the year and a half since then we’ve changed our name and our team has more than doubled from 8 to 18, with full fledged departments in QA, Support, Marketing, and Development, but we are still focused on developing software as an Agile team to help you work faster and smarter. As part of the Valiantys family, we regularly talk with consultants about their experiences on the ground helping companies implement Jira and Confluence, and that means we never lose touch with the day to day challenges of our clients.
What we’re working on
Top of our list right now is a focus on user experience: new Elements Connect 6.0 version with a revamped admin interface, UX redesign of Elements Spreadsheet, and we’ll continue to make our users our top priority, whether they’re Jira admins or Confluence end users. We also have some webinars planned for the coming months, which is a great chance to see some use-case demonstrations and ask any questions. Our team members will be at events across Europe this fall, so come out and meet us.
We’re also working on taking Elements Connect to the Cloud. If this is music to your ears, send us an email to learn more.
