Userlane offers interactive step-by-step instructions intended to let users immediately use software at a high level of proficiency without any prior knowledge. Felix Eichler, co-founder and CTO, told us how his startup has fared in the corona crisis.
Userlane recently completed a financing round amounting to 10 million euros. The Munich company now wants to invest in their team, new markets and their product. In our #CoronaUpdate, Felix Eichler said about his company:
“Userlane’s vision is for any person to immediately be able to use any software – without going through training.”
The corona crisis hasn’t taken a toll on the startup, said Eichler. In terms of customers, the quick transition to working from home even increased the demand for the Munich company’s solution.
Corona as an “opportunity to develop beyond Munich”
Userlane also used the crisis to develop their own digital processes. Although the startup was already a fully digitized company before the crisis, the digital onboarding of new employees has presented a new opportunity:
“We hired people who are located outside of Munich and see that as an opportunity to develop Userlane beyond Munich.”
The co-founder is confident:
“The new remote-first situation is here to stay.”
