INTRODUCTION TO CHISEL LABS, INC. AND OUR WEBSITE/PLATFORM
Chisel Labs is a B2B SAAS platform that enables Product Management. There are three important aspects of crafting amazing products – building the right product at the right time, aligning the team, and building deep, direct customer connection. Many software tools in the market allow Product Makers to manage their roadmaps. However, they fall short of providing great tools to align your team or building a great customer connection. Chisel Labs was founded to provide a cohesive platform to drive these three aspects of Product management.
