teams. By default, a Global team is created. The owner can create many other teams, each with their own objectives, KPIs and projects.
When inviting another user, the owner assigns that user a

Each of these users, can then invite other users too.
Invited users get to use ALL features.
What exactly do you mean by $9 per team per month?
When the team leader logs in to use Kippy, he/she will be asked to subscribe by providing their payment details (e.g. credit card) via the online popup (integrated with www.stripe.com).

I am still not convinced or do not understand how Kippy can help me?
We believe Performance Management can help you, your teams and organisation in a number of ways - safety, cost, quality, people, delivery, etc.
Kippy can help you identify your corporate objectives and the related measurable KPIs, to track if you are moving in the right direction, at the correct speed. And if you're not, Kippy helps you to quickly identify and resolve issues across your organisation.
By putting down the framework and process, Kippy helps you mature your organisation - ensuring you focus all your effort on the same objectives - and all pull in the same direction.
By devolving responsibility for maintaining, updating and reporting across your organisation - Kippy helps share the load - so you get quality information - without the labourious admin and bottlenecks.
But that's OK .... if you're still not convinced .... we can still help.
Instead of trying to effect Performance Management improvements yourself, contact us and we can help you get set up on Kippy and hand-hold your organisation through the initial set up and integration.
We can even arrange Performance Management consultancy through our vast global network of partners.
