Cookpad is the largest online recipe sharing service in the world with over 98 million monthly users. It is available worldwide in over 60 countries and 17 languages. The Cookpad team was on information overload and needed a better way of organizing and sharing design ideas—Cacoo to the rescue.
Cookpad hadn’t found a sufficient solution for managing and sharing files between teams. Drafting applications and presentation design tools weren’t cutting it, and important information was getting lost in the process. Cacoo enabled them to streamline this system, plus it allowed them to better track their feedback loop.
Cookpad’s infrastructure department regularly creates and updates a large volume of server and network design documents. Previously, they used an installed drafting application where everyone worked together on a file server, but the process left a lot to be desired in terms of version control and sharing capabilities.
Their membership department faced similar issues developing campaign page mockups to promote services to paying members. They were stuck using a presentation creation application which made it impossible to tell which file was the latest version after repeated edits.
They needed a better way to manage files and versions while allowing for easy sharing between teams.
