COMPAS provides companies with a playbook cloud platform

COMPAS provides companies with a playbook cloud platform

In their platform, teams can record operations and easily share, track and execute plays. Startups and global enterprises worldwide rely on COMPAS for guiding and executing their businesses in a unified system. More than 100 playbooks have been created to date, translating into 10k+ captured and executed business actions.

Knowledge management and plan execution: from obstacles to opportunities

Knowledge management and plan execution: from obstacles to opportunities

The COMPAS playbook is a key platform for all types of organizations because it enables teams to record their processes and ensures company knowledge is preserved for posterity. It’s also a valuable tool for tracking results and generating alignment across distributed and cross-functional teams.

COMPAS’s founding team decided to create the platform after years growing tech companies and consulting for businesses in the US and abroad. Many clients shared challenges in the areas of knowledge management and plan fulfilment. The team noted that most organizations were struggling to ensure their processes and good practices were recorded, since routine actions were often housed in employee’s minds as tactical knowledge. As companies grew, it became harder to track how different areas were executing their plans and projects. Other challenges such as staff rotation made knowledge management even more difficult to document.

The COMPAS team decided to create a product based on the playbook methodology, which helps businesses consolidate tactical knowledge into explicit knowledge, accessible to the entire company. Marketing teams record how they execute a campaign, HR staff document onboarding steps for new employees, and every team contributes to the playbook, so that knowledge generated inside the organization is recorded and easily shareable. As a long-time tech partner, COMPAS came to us and soon after we had assembled a team of designers and developers to create the platform.

How it works

Capturing “how-to’s
Company leaders and/or C-level teams create the playbooks, which are basically processes composed of different phases and actions in order to achieve a company goal. These strategic teams are responsible for capturing the “how-to’s” and making them visible on the platform.
Setup
Managers and other employees are able to access the playbooks and execute them by assigning owners, deadlines and tracking progress.
Report
Everyone on the team understands how actions are taking place and the achieved results. COMPAS also maintains an overall view where all business operations can be seen simultaneously.
Marketplace
In addition, the platform offers a marketplace for buying and selling info products, playbooks created by experts in accomplishing specific goals. In this marketplace, professionals encapsulate and offer their successful playbooks to those looking for solutions to operational challenges.

A 5-year partnership for building disruptive products

Our relationship with COMPAS goes way back: since 2015 we’ve been working together on cloud app development projects. The first app we helped develop was a software that supported companies in their global scaling initiatives. This toolkit provided businesses with different platforms, from evaluating foreign markets to tracking international expansion. After achieving success with these products, the COMPAS founding team decided it was time to pivot. They envisioned COMPAS as a full technology company and wanted to make sure their clients problems were solved through smart, efficient software.

The first version of the playbook platform was officially launched in May 2020 and since then we’ve worked on weekly iterations, publishing small changes and features on the fly. Thanks to the close relationship COMPAS has with their clients, we have access to user feedback every week and prioritize the next iteration 100% based on their needs.

Supporting the growth of disruptive businesses

Supporting the growth of disruptive businesses

It’s been an interesting challenge to translate the playbook concepts to a digital product that’s easy to access and understood by different professionals, across backgrounds and hierarchy. For that, we’ve relied on frequent user testing and our UX design skills to set usability principles and validate changes quickly.

Some COMPAS clients are VES, Vyla, Vtex, BluePrism, and d-Local, a fintech company that is the first Uruguayan unicorn.
