We are pleased to announce that Gartner has selected WeLoop as Cool Vendor 2020 in the Digital Workplace. 

“Cool Vendors is one of Gartner’s hottest programs and most read research profiling smaller vendors, and it provides clients exposure to new and innovative technologies and services.”

This recognition confirms the vision we have on the future of the digital ecosystem, more specifically on the evolution and importance of the digital workplace. WeLoop is part of the digital environment of companies, allowing any employee of any company to flourish through the use of the business tools available to him.

Thanks to its strong collaborative and community aspect, WeLoop distinguishes itself by gathering in a community, all the users of the same application so that they can co-create the application of tomorrow that will meet all their expectations. 

Being recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner is also a unique opportunity for a startup such as WeLoop to prove its value in the eyes of all to be the essential collaborative tool for project management. Yes, we’re cool! 

Our customers, large groups such as Thales, GRDF but also startups such as GoJob, and our partners such as Microsoft support us and believe in our project and this recognition has only strengthened the support they give us.

WeLoop is also an incredible team that is being built on a daily basis but also people who believe deeply in a common project and it is thanks to this team that Gartner has identified a potential in WeLoop.

How do you define a “cool vendor”?

According to Gartner, a vendor should be considered as innovative or transformative for products, services or initiatives.  The criteria by which a vendor is defined as “cool” are:

  • Innovative – the vendor has developed technologies/products that enable users to do things they couldn’t do before.
  • Impact – the “vendor” offers technologies/products that have or will have a commercial impact; it is not just “technology for technology’s sake”.
  • Intriguing – the vendor has attracted Gartner’s interest and curiosity over the last 12 months.

Why is WeLoop a cool vendor?

“Employee enablement is critical to the success of digital workplace initiatives, but it is rarely programmatically managed and governed. In this research, we profile four emerging vendors who promise to optimize the enablement of digital workplace applications.”

Cool vendors in the digital workplace are emerging solutions that are challenging the digital workplace market by providing tools to continuously improve the interaction between end-users and application managers.

In this report, Gartner provides important insights for digital workplace leaders to ensure that the use of the digital workplace is also optimized through metrics management, user feedback and training.

In addition, Gartner presents key findings and recommendations for application managers looking to improve the use of applications in their digital Workplace. 

It is within this context that WeLoop has been selected as the 2020 “cool vendor” in the Digital Workplace category. 

“The Gartner 2019 Digital Workplace Survey found that employees who are dissatisfied with workplace applications are twice as likely to want to leave for a job in another organization than employees who are satisfied with their applications”

Indeed, WeLoop changes the game in the application co-creation process as it is the first community software that takes into account the voice of users.

Our customers are reinventing the way they build and improve their business applications, including user feedback on a permanent basis. Users are delighted to finally be listened to, to feel involved in the improvement of their work tools so that it is built according to their needs. User satisfaction, usage and commitment are KPIs that are quickly increasing thanks to WeLoop. 

WeLoop is also a tool for application managers because the prioritization and qualification of user requests is now facilitated by a customizable Kanban and data collection.
