When names are chosen carefully, they have the ability to inspire and unite a team in ways that nothing else can. Since 2016, we at Signeasy have dedicated time and effort to name our projects, both large and little, and we encourage you to do the same.
In fact, the process has now emerged as one of our favourite aspects of the project-starting procedure. It goes further than that, though, when it comes to project names. Around 56 percent of those who worked at Signeasy indicated that it helped them develop a special connection and relationship with the project, while another 44 percent claimed that it helped them become closer as a team.
We’ll get into the meaning of it all later, but first, let’s go back to the beginning and see how it all started:
The beginning of it all
We were hard at work on an intriguing new feature called ‘Document Fields’ when you read this in late 2016. However, we were aware that we needed to come up with something that would rekindle the team’s excitement for the project, even if it was only in the back of our thoughts. We had a lightbulb moment when we realised we should start giving our initiatives names.
The idea was to choose a name that would accomplish the following:
define the project’s relevance or impact on the world
excite our employees about the upcoming voyage on which they will be participating
give members of the team a sense of belonging as they work together towards a similar goal
While we began by calling our internal projects after the world’s highest mountains, it didn’t take long for us to understand that this could become a little tedious and repetitive after a while. As a bonus, we thought it wouldn’t hurt to incorporate a little bit of our brand personality into the project names.
From that point forward, there has been no looking back.
Project names have shown to be a valuable tool in the following five ways.
It has been amazing how much our project names have helped to inspire and unite our group of individuals. Do you still not believe us? We recently conducted a company-wide survey to learn more about the significance of internal project names for Signeasy workers. The results were interesting. Here’s what our staff had to say about the situation:
56 percent of respondents stated that having an internal project name aided in the development of a special connection and link between them and the project. Internal project names, according to 44% of respondents, helped them get closer as a group.
Internal project names, according to 30% of respondents, instilled a sense of ownership toward the project.
Twenty-six percent of respondents stated that it gave them the impression that they were working on a high-priority project.
12 percent of those who used it claimed that it helped them recall the details of a project with ease and gave context for a conversation while working on a project together.
At Signeasy, we have a long list of our favourite project names.
Since the beginning of the endeavour, we’ve come up with a slew of creative, amusing, and unusual project names to consider. A few initiatives that are currently in progress at Signeasy include the following:
(1) Skateboard – The goal of this project is to allow users to sign documents on the mobile web without the need to download an app on their mobile device. With a 48 percent approval rating, this is the most popular project name among our employees at Signeasy.
(2) GoldenPass – The team working on this project is currently developing a 14-day free trial for new customers on iOS devices, which will be applicable to any subscription plan. This is the second most popular project name at Signeasy, with a 22 percent approval rating.
(3) Boomerang – This term refers to a recurrence of a phenomenon. This project, which is based on the notion of credit refills, is dedicated to providing customers with one new credit every month on their iOS devices. This is the third most popular project name at Signeasy, with a 19 percent share of the market.
(4) Returning to one’s hometown – When Signeasy first opened its doors, it was a little more than seven years ago today. While we take great pleasure in developing a worldwide product from India, it was only with Aadhaar eSign that we were able to develop a solution that was specifically for the Indian market. And it is for this reason that we have appropriately titled this initiative — Homecoming. This is the fourth most popular project name at Signeasy, with a 15 percent share of the market.
If you’re looking for a way to inject a little excitement and fun into your internal initiatives, we highly recommend that you experiment with some imaginative names.
