As we (team #2231) prepared for the 2021 build season, we looked for a project management platform that will assist us with the upcoming FRC season. That’s How we found monday.com. We soon realized that this platform is the best option for us and that it answers all of our needs. We reached out to monday.com and managed to recruit them as our sponsor, thus providing free access to the platform to all our team members.
After a few months of great experience, We decided to not stop there. Before the 2021 FRC season started, we presented the platform to FIRST Israel and managed to get FIRST Israel and monday.com to cooperate and provided every single team in Israel a free access to the platform. We even gave online lectures and supported teams.
After a successful year of using monday.com as our project management platform, and gaining more experience and knowledge about the platform, we realized the amazing potential for something bigger.
In the last few months, we contacted the international managers of the FRC program and reviewed the option of global cooperation. We talked online with Kate Pilotte, Senior Kit of Parts Manager (FIRST Robotics Competition) and now proud to anounce:
Starting with the 2022 season, monday.com will be provided globally as part of the virtual kit-of-parts!
In addition, using our experience, we investigated how monday.com’s platform could better fit with the FRC program special needs. With the assistance of our friends from teams GreenBlitz #4590 and Skynet #4416, we created a guidebook about the platform and it’s use in the FRC season, and various templates that would fit the community for best use of the platform.
We hope that this will bring out the full potential of the teams in correct and professional management, and would like to thank FIRST Israel, monday.com, and FIRST for the help and support along the way.
We wish you all the best of luck, and invite you to ask any question.
