Pinpoint Releases Engineering
April 16, 2020
launched an engineering operations dashboard for teams to increase
productivity and collaboration, and help engineers do more of what they
love without distraction, available immediately.
Software engineers, and the products they build, are the driving force
behind the economy. To execute their daily work, engineers require a
massive toolbox for coding, testing, and deploying products. While all
of these development tools are extremely useful, they’ve created
inordinate complexity and inefficiency for the individual people, teams,
and companies making software every day. Pinpoint’s goal is to improve
the business of making software from start to finish. It unifies all
engineering activity in a single, contextual view, solving collaboration
issues caused by data silos and disparate tools. Pinpoint’s data science
analyzes all activity to understand how a team’s work is getting done
across sprints and projects to help engineers identify what needs
attention, resolve bottlenecks, manage risk, and plan more efficiently.
“Engineering teams shouldn’t have to waste time switching between
countless tabs and tools to execute their work. We want to empower teams
to focus on doing what they love: building great products. We’re
determined to give engineers a solution they can’t imagine doing their
jobs without,” said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Pinpoint. “A lot of companies
say that they simplify work, but we’re building something totally
different. We don’t just aggregate data. We take that extra step to
answer ‘what next?’ so you have more time to get your real work done.
And it’s all in one, easy to navigate dashboard.”
Pinpoint integrates with the tools engineers already use every day –
like Jira, Azure TFS, GitLab, Github, and BitBucket – to show relevant
activity across their company, team, and people. Engineers no longer
have to jump between tabs and products to see and interact with issue
management content and source code repository details. Teams can drill
down into the specifics of an issue or pull request and see combined
content from all third-party integrations within Pinpoint directly.
Additionally, Pinpoint provides a holistic, interactive view of how work
is getting done, called Issue Workflow, to improve or reinforce
processes based on the data from your team’s tools.
more than ever, it’s critical to help engineers rethink how they
actually do their work and accelerate digital collaboration,” says
Haynie. “It’s one thing to manage 100 engineers in the same building and
it’s another thing entirely to manage 100 engineers in 100 different
places. Think of the remote work options for most jobs – Google Drive,
Slack, Zoom, etc. – they don’t suffice for software development.
Engineers need specialty tools for themselves, and as it stands, the
industry is about 10 years behind.”
Empowering engineers to do what they do best will lead to more
productive teams and faster product innovation. Today’s offering is the
first step in creating an entirely new and efficient software
development ecosystem. In short order, Pinpoint will connect with all
tools across the software development life cycle – from planning and
deployment to monitoring and response systems.
