Screenful Oy is a privately held computer software company with headquarters in Helsinki, Finland. It was founded in 2013 by Sami Linnanvuo, CEO, and Tuomas Tammi, CTO. Sami started development of the software in order to improve communications among stakeholders in software projects. He noticed that many project managers find difficulty in answering even the most basic questions related to their production process. The software as SaaS was launched in 2015. Integration with Pivotal Tracker also followed. Collaboration with Trello came next, and the Power-Up was launched in 2016. The JIRA add-on launch and the GitHub integration soon followed in 2017. As of June this year, there are over 200 Screenful customers from 30 countries.
