We’re here to make projects more successful.

Deployed was founded by practitioners, scientists, and software engineers to reimagine how we write scope and agree work. We officially launched in 2020 with funding from the Mayfield Fund and Microsoft Ventures as part of a Melinda Gates’ sponsored competition.

A new way of looking at projects

Using a patchwork of systems like Word, PDF, Excel, and email to get one contract signed creates excessive admin for service providers and procurement teams, and slows down projects from the start.

Deployed has a better way. Intuitive, collaborative, and flexible, Work Assessor and Work Author (our two flagship products) enable teams to author, edit, and publish work contracts that are 10x more likely to deliver on time, and on budget.

Our goals and objectives

Make every project successful

Everything we do is designed to launch successful projects with precise scope and clear Statements of Work.

Rewrite the language of work

We eliminate corporate jargon so that everyone understands the objectives of any project.

Value what happens before

Support our clients with insights and benchmarks so they can see immediate value and make better informed decisions.

Write good questions for better outcomes

Replace forms with intuitive digital interactions, designed with our users in mind.

Make best practice accessible

Statements of Work are technical documents. Enhance every text box with guidance, guardrails, and assisted writing.

Be independent. Always.

Build features that work for buyers and sellers of services and work to promote better collaboration.
