Ninety: A Natural Extension of EOS®
What may look like instant success results from years of slow and steady growth – topped off with an exciting infusion of forward thinking. About five years ago, Sagefrog co-founders Mark Schmukler and Suzanne Morris took their EOS-run agency to the next level, hiring EOS Implementer® Mark O’Donnell to help them focus on growing their business. At his suggestion, Sagefrog also became early adopters of EOS-licensed Ninety software to help them get more real work done and thrive.
“At first, we saw the value in having software to help us with Level 10 Meetings™,” Mark says. "Now, Ninety has become a natural extension of these weekly meetings, ensuring all data, issues, and action items are accounted for."
Ninety not only helps Mark, Suzanne, and the entire Sagefrog team run effective meetings, but they also rely on Ninety to help make everything in their company run better, from their Scorecards and Rocks to problem-solving, documenting processes, improving transparency, and more.
“Ninety allows us to run EOS in an elegant, streamlined, automated manner.”
Hybrid Workplaces Thrive with Ninety
Ninety has allowed the Sagefrog team to run their hybrid workplace with ease, giving employees and clients access to in-person structure and support with daily flexibility and autonomy.
Mark says, "When you're working in more than one location, you want a software that's easy to use and effective. Ninety is that software for us at Sagefrog."
Sagefrog employees recently rated their agency with a score of 95% on the EOS Organizational Checkup™, 15 percentage points higher than the EOS-graduate requirement of 80%. Another impressive achievement, along with the growth, performance improvement, and quality of life gained – all credited to EOS, Sagefrog’s Implementer, and Ninety.
