About

Now, we’re all Grouptrail, all the time.

Since 2004, our platform has evolved from a focus on project management to customer relationship management to group messaging to a visual database for tracking people and processes. At its core, Grouptrail has always been a collaborative database tool for workflow management.

Just like you, we’re constantly evolving. And adapting our app to better serve what you need. In launching v8 of the app, we streamlined a ton of features and functionality, as well as our name.

What started it all?

A decade into our corporate careers, like many others we were frustrated with all the wasted time and unsatisfying collaboration systems out there, draining our creativity, not encouraging it.

Whatever they are called (file sharing programs, intranets, knowledge management tools, project management software, content management systems), most were uninspiring, overly complicated, not comprehensive enough and had minimal support.

Why can’t these systems be simple to use, adaptable for anyone and cost effective?

It all seemed like common sense to us that people would want something like Grouptrail.

Grouptrail is powered by FMYI, Inc., a software company headquartered in Portland, Oregon and founded by Justin Yuen.

Justin had just left Nike where he was a Senior Manager in Corporate Sustainable Development and started to pursue this quest.

Nike believed in it too and helped get the company started. And for that, we’re eternally grateful to Nike.

So began our journey in 2004.

What do we believe in?

Like our network of partners—customers, contractors, vendors—we care more about producing outcomes than simply reaching goals.

Recognized as a pioneer in social collaboration software and featured in TechCrunch, Bloomberg, the New York Times and other publications, we are committed to serving leaders and managers driving measurable change.

As a company, we’re passionate about empowering and inspiring people in their shared mission to make a difference. We think of our customers as teammates. You’re always welcome to contact us. Or call us: 971-222-3016.

Our team likes to work smart and play hard as part of a full life. Probably like you.

We also believe in being a force for good. FMYI [For MY Innovation] has been a Benefit Company since 2014.

That’s the Grouptrail way.

Grouptrail is a proven and tested platform hosting over two million workspaces worldwide for education organizations, nonprofits, government agencies, and companies — of all sizes.
