2020 - BIRTH
December 2020: Birthed by Research
Towards the end of the year 2020, following the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies were getting used to the new normal of working remotely. On December 1st, 2020, Mr. Emuobosa Onerhime shared a survey with companies he had helped to setup email and web services in 20 years.
Based on collective feedback and research on their needs, they all requested help with software to optimize their operations and manage the people they work with. On December 7th, 2020, Mr. Onerhime registered the domain name "webworktools.com" to secure it prior to future company registration.
2021 - FORMATIONS
January 2021: Pilot Product Launch
Every day, Mr. Onerhime conducted tests with various popular technology giants. In fact, he was setting up Microsoft Azure while people were celebrating the New Year on January 1st, 2021. In the first week of that same year, he started developing web-based apps to get a better understanding of user expectations while testing products by the giants.
To formalize this research, he had to set up a company, so he invited two friends to support him as stakeholders. While he built the product, they engaged in review and contributed to the setup.
On January 29th, 2021, Business Suite CRM was launched by the founding team.
February 2021: Formalizing Research
On February 2nd, 2021, Web Work Tools Limited was incorporated by the Corporate Affairs Commission in Nigeria with Registration No. 1751338. Following this, the pilot product was regularly reviewed and tested by prospective customers for months.
Suggestions were shared for improvements.
July 2021: Change in Memberships
By July 2021, the research team members working with Mr. Onerhime left the company, so a new member joined afterwards. The pilot product was discontinued, and then a strategy for partnerships and social advocacy was introduced.
We started exploring a partnership opportunity with one of the technology giants being researched.
October 2021: First Global Partnership
We found that Zoho Corporation was the best cultural fit for customers, so we requested engagement with the giant as a Workplace Partner. On October 28th, 2021, Zoho Corporation signed with Web Work Tools Limited to engage the company as an Authorized Partner. After training and support, Zoho Corporation extended its partnership with Web Work Tools Limited for the provision of individual Zoho Workplace products, Zoho Sites, and Zoho Assist.
Web Work Tools Limited started serving customers with Zoho Products in December 2021.
