Wimi was born with the idea that the efficiency of teamwork is still far below its full potential today. When Lionel Roux and Antoine Duboscq (founder of the startup studio adVentures) created Wimi in 2010, they had already jointly accumulated more than 30 years of management, entrepreneurial and consulting experience. Both believed that while it is true that Office automation tools have significantly improved individual productivity, far too much time and energy was still being wasted on basic teamwork tasks.
Five years ago, it was clear that no solution on the market was adequately addressing this issue. Back then, companies were instead designing specialized tools like file and task-sharing modules. Of course anything was better than nothing, but those specialized tools were clearly incomplete and it quickly became difficult to juggle such a wide range of disparate tools. Instead of trying to work with what was available, Lionel and Antoine decided to build their own tool with a single objective: facilitate teamwork by covering all essential workflow needs through an intuitive interface. Wimi was founded on the belief that teams can boost their productivity and benefit from the full power of their teamwork with a fully-integrated, user-friendly tool.
