ManageWP: What Has Been and What is to Come

ManageWP logo

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun?

At ManageWP we are fast approaching the end of our first year as a commercial service. It has certainly been one to remember and I am delighted with how far we have come in such a short space of time.

With the above in mind and with the New Year looming close, I thought now would be a good time to update you on our progress to date along with what we have planned for the future.

Rapid Growth

In the last twelve months or so the ManageWP team has grown from 4 to over 20 employees:

Here are some of us!

Such rapid expansion was a direct consequence of two key factors:

  1. Our desire to develop all of the innovative new features that you have asked for
  2. Our commitment to providing an exemplary support system

Speaking of which, our average human support response time is just 39 minutes. And that’s not the whole story — in 33% of cases that first response also resolves the issue — something we are extremely proud of.

But in our case, pride doesn’t beget laziness. On the contrary; we will strive to improve our support system even more as the ManageWP service continues to develop. For instance, we plan to soon introduce direct telephone support to augment our online options.

New Features

In terms of the ManageWP app itself, we are planning to release the new dashboard within the next few weeks. You can have a little sneak peek here.

Beyond that, here are a breakdown of features we are currently working on and hope to release within the next couple of months:

What Else?

As you can see, there is plenty for us to be getting on with!

We will never stop working to make ManageWP and even better service for you. In fact, what you see above is barely the beginning. We have big plans for 2013, starting with fundamental improvements to the ManageWP app. We want to decrease loading times, remove unnecessary clicks, provide you with a more intuitive user experience, and make information more readily accessible.

We will also be working on new product features and a couple of completely new products to complement the ManageWP app.

2013 is going to be a really exciting year and we are honored to have you along for the ride. On behalf of the entire ManageWP team, thank you for using our product and best wishes for the rest of the year!

    Any idea of the sameorigin X-frame options problem will be fixed anytime? It’s the only thing preventing me from joining. Most of the smaller sites — these are the ones I want to manage through ManageWP — are hosted at bulk/budget hosts like 1&1 that don’t allow deactivation of “sameorigin”, so I can’t access each site’s WP dashboard in ManageWP’s dash.

      Hi Josh

      Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to override your hosting settings. The only thing is to change to a new host that is not as restrictive.

    Thank you so much for such a great product that makes many mundane tasks so much easier. You save me a lot of logging in and logging out of various wp-admins! And I’m looking forward to using the new features you’re introducing soon.

    Excellent — looking forward to “Client reports: monthly or weekly updates featuring all tasks performed”.

      Yes we figured out this will be very useful (and our users sent many requests for it too)

        this sounds like a great feature. any chance you could run a bulleted list by us so we might help provide additional insights, prior to release?
