What is HeyOrca?

You probably have some experience in a tech company or project. The success of the outcome heavily relies on effective communication and "being on the same page" which is facilitatated by tools such as Jira, Confluence and Github that centralize the efforts of the team. Marketing teams are similar: they work on multiple projects like ads or social media and have to manage those project from ideation to distribution. HeyOrca is a web based tool to make sense of this chaos: bringing the marketing team and their clients together in one place to communicate, create and deliver. Think of it like Jira for marketing teams.

  • Testing staging environment to ensure core functionality before release
  • Testing after release to confirm release health
  • Documenting project requirements to qualify project results
  • Communicating with the Customer Success team on product changes that should be communicated to the customers
  • Optional: Automating manual tests
