The company's latest round of equity funding raised $150 million and saw the company valued at $1.9 billion – nearly four times what it was judged to be worth at its previous round of funding a year ago. It's a clear testament to monday.com's success so far, and an exciting sign of what's still to come. With plenty of long-term plans for the platform, and now the cash to channel into making them a reality, the future is looking bright for Monday.com.(opens in new tab)

monday.com feature focus
Whether you're a studio manager or simply interested in how this tool might help boost efficiency within your immediate team, monday.com is worth exploring. Let's take a look at how the platform works.
The tool centres around flexible and customisable project boards. The owner kicks off a project by building a design board that includes all the specific columns they need. When the project kicks off, the board is populated with design requests, and team members create their personal backlog to work through. Stay on top of progress by dragging-and-dropping different tasks to the appropriate group, assigning requests to different team members, and using the different views to keep track of what's going on.(opens in new tab)
The ability to add automations is just one of the handy features to make things even more efficient. For example, you might want to automatically notify the colleague who requested a task when you've completed it.
monday.com knows different teams have different needs, so you don't need to worry about shoehorning your process into a specific format. Project boards are highly flexible to suit the needs of the project. Individual team members can customise their own workflow by creating specific groups tailor-made for their process.
If you are struggling with anything within the tool, you can rest assured – there's 24/7 email and phone support, with a 10-minute response time (much better than industry standard).
