What is PollUnit?
PollUnit creates tools that facilitate collaboration, prioritization and collection of ideas and feedback, evaluation of graphics and photos, as well as surveys and collaborative arrangements within teams or with large crowds.
PollUnit is self-financed and independent. We are only committed to our users. Data protection is a must for us. We offer our tools Freemium - that means a limited version is free of charge.
The history of PollUnit
The two friends Philipp Großelfinger and Markus Huber had the idea for PollUnit in 2016. Philipp organized his wedding and Markus had to prioritize different product designs. Due to the so different requirements a concept for flexible coordination and distribution of tasks was created.
About half a year later the first version of PollUnit is ready for the public. On 10 March 2017, the two Munich-based went live with PollUnit.
PollUnit has a healthy and stable growth and is in continuously development.
We spend approximately 8% of our gross sales on planting trees with plant-for-the-planet.org.

We are constantly working on new functions and improvements. These updates are deployed many times a week. Several times a year we have a »Major Release«. Up to now these have been completely new functions as well as major architectural changes.
Many of our functions were only created because users told us their wishes. Functions that help all PollUnit users are usually implemented. This doesn't cost more than an email or a post in our support forum.
