Pilot and Onboarding

Our 3LO integration is designed to be fast and unobtrusive, eliminating the need for any extensive implementation within your organization. Within less than one day, you and your group managers can begin reaping the benefits of Acumen, and be warned - it's highly addictive!

If your team is larger than 10 people, you’ll need to book a demo with Okay before you can sign-up. After the demo, you’ll also need an onboarding session to be taught about metrics and charts, what they mean, how and when each member should use them, etc.

The extensive education required for Okay means that not everyone will openly embrace using it.

Get exactly what you require, no more no less. Data is cool, but it can be detrimental if you don't know how to use it. We are here to help you solve your problems, not create new ones. We provide you with trend analysis, alerts, benchmarks, and actionable tips to help you make the most of your engineering talent by going beyond just benchmarks and processes.

Okay provides a never-ending list of metrics and charts, that requires being fully educated on Okay’s terminology to understand. 

This tool is good for managers that want to play with raw data and connect the dots themselves. But if you’re looking for actionable tips and insights, this might not be the right tool for you.

Here, there is no room for compromise. We are SOC2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 certified and GDPR compliant.

The only certification Okay has is a SOC2 compliance certificate.

Did we say cut the bullshit? $10 per developer, no weird limitations, unlimited team members, projects, and repos. Oh, and you can pay monthly and stop whenever you want.

Is your team larger than 10 people? Of course it is. Okay will cost you $25 per engineer per month until 50 users. If your team exceeds 50 you’ll need to pay for an enterprise subscription.

Your people are the key to your delivery success. Get a full scope of the dynamics at play within your team, pinpoint your stars, and make data-backed decisions.

Keep in mind that Okay is all about project management. If you're looking for a shallow summary of your project's status and the people behind it, it could be worthwhile for you. Just don't expect any tools or insights that’ll help your team improve and perform better.
