Project History

  • SaaS app for improving building operations
    Analyzed market and differentiating features, prioritized, gathered requirements, and led cross-functional teams (UX, design, and dev) to build features. Led integration of third-party software. Defined, tracked, and analyzed key KPIs.

    Facilio is a B2B SaaS startup in the real estate tech space helping infrastructure and operational execs manage building operations efficiently.

    As the second product manager in the startup, I created processes to keep track of KPIs and prioritize features. I implemented third-party software integrations into our product by handling partner relations, defining, and prioritizing use cases.

    I also led one out of three product offerings of our platform. I recognized that the adoption was very poor for this offering. I visited some customers and analyzed how the product is being used by the end-users. Finally, I improved the adoption from 30% to > 85%. I also handled alpha customer relationships to test the MVP of new features.

    I collaborated with the sales and marketing team to create content and help them present our product's value-prop to potential customers.
