Loach: The Ultimate OKR Management Solution for Scaling Teams

The Visionaries Behind Loach

Loach is the brainchild of Frank Smit, a seasoned entrepreneur and the former COO of OBI4wan, where he propelled the company's growth from a modest team of five to an impressive force of 75 employees and €10M in revenue. Frank’s firsthand experiences with the challenges of aligning team efforts with strategic goals led him to create Loach—a tool designed to bridge the gap between daily tasks and quarterly objectives.

About Loach

Loach is an innovative OKR (Objectives and Key Results) management platform designed specifically for scaling companies. It helps teams align their day-to-day tasks with the broader, strategic quarterly goals of the organization. This alignment ensures that every team member is not just busy, but also productive in a way that directly contributes to the company's success.

How It Works

  1. Set and Align Quarterly OKRs: Loach features a user-friendly OKR wizard that aids in creating and aligning company-wide objectives. It provides a clear overview of all OKRs to ensure every team member understands the company’s direction.

  2. Plan Weekly Tasks: The platform allows teams to break down OKRs into weekly tasks, making large goals more manageable and keeping teams focused on immediate actions that drive progress.

  3. Track Progress: With Loach, tracking progress is simplified through weekly check-ins and an intuitive dashboard that offers a comprehensive view of both achievements and areas needing attention, ensuring goals are met effectively.

Solving the Customer Support Problem

Loach addresses the customer support dilemma by empowering users to self-manage their progress through intuitive tools and resources. The platform’s simplicity and the proactive alignment of tasks reduce the need for extensive customer support, allowing teams to focus on achieving their goals without confusion or delay.

Target Customer

Loach is ideal for executives and teams within scaling companies who need a reliable, clear, and effective method to manage and achieve their objectives. It’s particularly beneficial for organizations transitioning from small startups to larger entities and needing structure to manage growth effectively.

Monetization Strategy

Loach operates on a subscription-based model, providing different tiers to cater to various needs and sizes of organizations. This strategy ensures that as companies grow and their needs evolve, Loach can grow with them, providing more advanced features and capabilities at each tier.
