Imagine you have everything you need to get started with OKRs — the tools, the foundation, and the support. Now, imagine that all this costs you nothing.
As part of our OKRs4All initiative, we’re excited to announce the launch of Quantive Essentials — the most robust free-forever plan on the OKR market. No tricks, no trials that run out in 14 days, just a feature-packed software option to put you on the path to better strategy execution through OKRs.
We believe in the value of OKRs and the impact they can have on businesses of all sizes. Quantive Essentials is how we put our money (not yours) where our mouth is by providing value-packed OKR software to any company of any size in any industry.
To say we’re OKR fanatics is probably a bit of an understatement. We have an undying belief that OKRs are THE must-have for your business to achieve all it can. That’s not a marketing tactic: it’s a rallying cry to close the gap between strategy and execution.
OKRs strengthen your strategy through alignment, put data at the core of your decision making, and enable freedom in how your teams execute. Suffice it to say, we believe everyone should have access to everything possible through OKRs.
The results we've seen from helping over 500,000 users with OKRs spawned the idea of a free Quantive Essentials package. Take notes though: this isn’t some run-of-the-mill, stripped down, low-functioning version of our higher-scale software. Quantive Essentials started with a singular motivation — build an OKR offering that’s better than anything else you’ll find on the market, then make it free.
Essentials is the lean machine of Quantive, saving you time and reducing friction so you can achieve greater results as quickly as possible.
The Quantive Essentials package provides your business, no matter your size or industry, with the software to thrive with OKRs. Here are just a few of the standard capabilities in Quantive Essentials:
OKR Creation, Management, and Templates: create your OKRs (from scratch or a template) seamlessly through our intuitive UX and handle everything from updates to ownership.
Alignment & Planning Sessions: organize your OKRs in time-bound periods, establish relationships between annual and quarterly OKRs, and set OKR cadences.
Automations and Integrations: reduce time-draining manual inputs and make your OKR process simpler, richer, and data-driven.
User & Role Management: manage unlimited view-only users, assign custom permissions, and align anyone who does work for your business.
OKR Education, Resources, and Support: become an OKR power user with our expansive library of OKR knowledge and lean on us when you need help along your journey.
Let’s be clear: the “future of work" is now. Businesses that refuse to operate in the modern world will fail, but a modern world comes with a unique set of challenges. We believe Quantive Essentials will help you navigate the new era of business and solve the challenges that come with it.
The strategic gap between digital-first younger generations and experience-driven older generations can’t be ignored. OKRs close this gap through a purpose-driven, yet data-backed approach to strategy execution. As fast-paced execution drives modern business trends, flexibility and adaptation are requirements in your operating model.
Yet, operating quickly isn’t the magic solution for all businesses — managing uncertainty (like a global pandemic, for example) is crucial for longevity. OKRs keep your teams aligned with your organization’s objective regardless of the outside noise, with key results bringing focus to the initiatives that actually matter. Whether you’re a two-person startup or a two-thousand-person enterprise, Quantive Essentials primes you to achieve the best possible outcomes through OKRs.
We’ve talked a lot about our product here, but Quantive Essentials is all about you — your strategic evolution through OKR adoption, your path to better results, and empowerment through your data. If you’re serious about OKRs, we want to equip you to implement them with confidence and success. Our beginners’ OKR Fundamentals email course covers the history of OKRs and how to create well-crafted, evidence-based OKRs.
Quantive Essentials is the path to a less complicated, yet more in-depth work experience through the strategic capabilities of OKRs. As a pillar in our OKRs4All initiative, we’re focused on enabling your company’s vision better than any other offering on the market. You’ve got nothing to lose if you're ready to connect your strategy with the work that needs to be done.
