Your time matters.

The ability to perform deep work is becoming increasingly rare at exactly the same time it is becoming increasingly valuable in our economy. As a consequence, the few who cultivate this skill, and then make it the core of their working life, will thrive.

Who is Rize for?

Rize is for anyone who greatly values their time and wants to improve their overall productivity. Some use cases include:

  • Marketing managers who need to manage their time between multiple concurrent projects, teams, and deadlines.
  • Software developers and designers who need to prioritize focus time and minimize distractions to deliver high quality work.
  • Startup founders and entrepreneurs who need to validate how they spend their time so that they are prioritizing the right things.

How does Rize track my activity?

Rize is a macOS and Windows app that automatically captures time spent on your desktop's focused window. For websites, it will connect and request the current url to help categorize any time spent in browsers.

For meetings, Rize allows you to integrate your Google Calendar to capture time in meetings even if your focused window is not the video call. This is helpful if you are presenting or multi-tasking.

What platforms does Rize support?

Rize is currently available for macOS (Mojave 10.14.6 or later) and Windows (Windows 10 or later). Support for Linux will be coming soon.

On macOS, Rize supports all major browsers including Google Chrome, Safari, Brave Browser, Microsoft Edge, Arc, SigmaOS, Mighty and many more.

Rize tracks time spent on unsupported browsers, but is unable to categorize any activity by URL within the browser.

How does Rize protect my data?

Your data is hosted on Amazon Web Services, protected both physically and electronically. Your data is only accessible through your personal password-protected account, and any data is encrypted at rest and in transit. Our database generates backups of our data at least twice a day for redundancy.

Our team has engineering experience from top technology companies like Twitter and Periscope. Security is not an afterthought for us; we design, develop, and ship code with security as a top consideration.

How much does Rize cost?

In addition to the free tier, the paid tier of Rize costs $9.99 per month when billed annually and $14.99 per month when billed monthly. Both include a 7-day free trial with full access to the product. You can cancel your account at any time.

What happens when I stop paying for my subscription?

If you decide to stop paying for Rize, you can retain access to your account and all of your existing data. However, any new activity going forward will not be tracked.

Who is building Rize?

Rize was created by Will Goto and Macgill Davis. Together, they previously cofounded and ran a VC-backed startup for 3 years with over $3.1 million in funding.

Will has a background in front-end software engineering and design with work experience at Twitter, Periscope, and numerous early stage startups.

Macgill focuses primarily on back-end software engineering with work experience at Twitter and Peer. Previously, he cofounded and sold a company called GuideHire in Boston.
