Papyrs
 

Hi from us at Papyrs 👋

Thanks for your interest in our product! Here's a little bit about us.

We're a team of engineers and designers who love building great software. The idea that we can run a software service at scale improving the way people work all around the world makes this our dream job. We like to work on the future; the future of software, the future of work, and the way it is allowing people to get a lot more done, in less time, and with more flexibility (like working from home or remotely, as digital nomads or across different time zones and continents). This is what we focus on:

Reliability

We want our product and service to be reliable and dependable. This is always important, no matter what kind of product, and especially when it's something you and your team rely on every day, like an intranet or wiki. Yes, the version you see here is completely new. But our very first PapyrsV1 actually launched ten years ago! We're proud of the fact that we have customers that are still with us after ten years, without any interruption in service! Sign up now and we hope to hear you still like it in 2030!

Building the product we need ourselves

We dogfood our product and use Papyrs everyday to run our business. We have been a 100% all-remote company since day 1, so we put our decade-long experience with managing a distributed team back into the product.

Fast and personal support

Good support is part of the product. We all have our bad experiences with support that takes three days to reply (or not at all), simply refers you back to the website with an auto-reply or tells you the expensive contract cannot be cancelled because you didn't read the fine print. We believe helpful and personal support is part of what makes a product great.

Keep it fun and user-friendly

Too many people have to work with frustrating and boring software every day. They see all the innovation happening in the apps on their phones and consumer sites on the web. For some reason though, their business software is still so hard to use you need an IT department to set it up. When designing our software, we have a strong focus on user-friendliness and design: we want to empower you to do your work faster and make it more fun.

We love building and improving things

We don't believe in "Because that's the way it's always been done". Most of our time we spend on coming up with new ways to improve our software and service: different ways of doing things, automating more, drawing up new interfaces, making our code run faster.

Leadership Team

We're a completely bootstrapped & self-funded company, so by just focusing on improving our product we have been able to grow to where it is now without any outside investors. We're profitable, in this for the long haul and wholly owned by the founders, who still form the leadership team today. As a small and independent company this freedom allows us to fully focus on building great software and listening to the only real stakeholders we have: you, our customers.
