Creately introduces a real-time visual workspace for online meetings, resolves WFH frustrations


Creately enables teams, working remotely to now replicate the same room like collaboration with a series of brand new product capabilities.

The most challenging part of working from home, is to do what you usually achieve in a conference room with a whiteboard at work – brainstorming and planning. Video conferencing and screen sharing is the default tool for most teams now, yet it blocks out any kind of collaboration as it’s just one person broadcasting their view.

The typical dynamics of being able to contribute to what’s on the common whiteboard or document is missed with the default formula of video conference + screen share.

Creately, a global leader in online diagramming and visual collaboration has added new capabilities to address this challenge.

With the capabilities that are being announced today, teams can now work on a shared, infinite canvas with Video Conferencing right inside the product where changes are synchronized to every participant in milliseconds. With over a 1000s of templates for flowcharts, mind maps, org charts, IT and more, Creately helps teams get on the same page much faster, visually.

“We want to give people that missing feeling of sitting next to each other and figuring things out. While being on a conference call, you can still draw, write and update visuals in a common space in real-time, making the connection between teams magnitudes better than simply being on a video call.” said Chandika Jayasundara, Creately’s CEO.

“We are extremely thrilled to share this with the thousands of teams that already use Creately and our wider global audience. We are also making these capabilities available in our Free version of the product as well“ added Chandika.

Creately’s customers use its powerful diagram and visual tools of Flowcharts, Mind maps, Organization charts, UML and Software design diagrams, IT network designs and more, to solve problems in all areas of business from marketing to research and development.

As widely understood, visuals are easier to understand and collaborate with, yet are minimally used by professionals due to the difficulty in creating them and sharing them. Creately’s core purpose is to convert each of its users to powerful visual communicators. 1000s of templates and an expertly engineered product with a refreshingly simple interface forms the foundation of its solution to this challenging problem.

With the new collaborative capabilities, Creately expects that millions of more users will be able to work in teams, to solve every-day challenges with effective visuals and insights. Marrying video conferencing, real-time previews and an interactive, infinite canvas provides an upgrade from the status quo of modern day meetings and collaboration.

Creately is also seeing significant demand for its product in large enterprises and is launching a new set of enterprise offerings along with this major announcement. The enterprise plans offer more user and data management options with added support and security options.

Creately is used by over 4 million global users and thousands of leading businesses worldwide for Diagramming and visual collaboration. Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia with teams in Sri Lanka and Singapore, Creately was founded in 2008 and is privately held. https://creately.com

CROWDFUNDING STARTUP, BEAUTY BACKER, INTRODUCES NEW “COVAID” CATEGORY ALLOWING SMALL BUSINESSES, IMPACTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS, TO COLLECT DONATIONS WITH ZERO FEES.


[Austin, TX]: Beauty Backer today announced COVaid, a new category on its crowdfunding platform. COVaid provides access to zero-fee fundraising for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and startups to keep their businesses afloat as the world fights the Coronavirus and offers a way for communities to support local small businesses.

Beauty Backer is a reward-based crowdfunding platform exclusively for cosmetics and personal care campaigns. To help other small businesses, who may not qualify for other forms of COVID-19 funding, Beauty Backer created a new category and made it accessible to all!

COVaid is a donation-based category on Beauty Backer, open to small businesses, entrepreneurs and startups of all industries – brick and mortar, direct-to-consumer and online. Jacqueline Gutierrez, CEO of Beauty Backer states: “We’ve carved out a very specific place for small business owners to raise funds without paying fees, we don’t want it to be difficult to get the support you need, we want to make it as easy as possible.”

Beauty Backer is not collecting any fees on contributions to businesses made through COVaid, however, Stripe processing fees will still apply. Gutierrez has reached out to Stripe, without response, to partner on this initiative in hopes that they will waive their processing fees.

COVaid allows these businesses to quickly set up a crowdfunding campaign and start collecting donations from family, friends, loyal customers and anyone else who wants to keep local businesses functioning, and serving the community, when social restrictions are lifted. Gutierrez says: “We want to be sure that our favorite hair salon, pizzeria or bakery is ready, willing and able to reopen when all of this is over. That they are able to raise the funds they need and keep 100% of the contributions.”

Campaign creators are verified by Trulioo, an external 3rd party verification company, before they are approved to launch a campaign to avoid potential fraud risks. Contributors should support local businesses or known brands and conduct their own due diligence to ensure safe transactions.

“This is an opportunity to help your neighbors. The longer they go without support, the more likely these businesses will close their doors and never reopen them, we’re trying to prevent that from happening.”  – Jacqueline Gutierrez, CEO – Beauty Backer.

Features and benefits of COVaid include.

  • Dedicated category for businesses experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19
  • Donation only category, no reward creation required.
  • Beauty Backer fees will not be applied to COVaid campaign
