Using personal chat solutions for your official communication
It’s Valentines Day. You were about to forward a lovey-dovey message to your better half, but you accidentally send it to your boss. Probably because all your official contacts were mixed with your personal contacts on your personal IM app. Now you’re not looking forward to Monday because there’s going to be hell to pay.
Email threads take way too long to solve issues
You’ve sent a team mate an ‘Urgent’ email two days ago. The person’s on leave and you haven’t heard back from him yet. Sounds familiar?
Email is no longer the best medium for instant communication. People usually check emails two to three times in a day. They treat email as a means of communication, but don’t let emails hinder their other official tasks. Considering this, email is a good option to have conversations which are meant to be online and are not time sensitive. But what about discussions which are meant to happen in real time?
- Servers are down: Does anyone know about the cause for this?
- Can we have a quick video call in 5 minutes?
Do you look like this? Looking at your computer awaiting an email revert. Confused whether recipient has received the email or not? Whether the other person has read it or not? Should you call now?
Conversations meant for real time often start with emails and end with phone calls. But not anymore! Flock is the ideal solution to this quandary.
Tracking vs Alerts
Does you work setup look like this? Is continuously tracking social activities on various channels a part of your job? Are you busy enough to warrant a multi-screen setup or do you settle for continuously switching between multiple apps just to track activities?
Flock is now equipped with webhooks that collate all your notifications on Flock itself. It’s like training Flock to get work done for you. Notifications from multiple channels like Facebook, Twitter, etc will be presented to you on Flock.
No more tracking, get alerts.
This ‘mantra’ leads to increased productivity. Time spent on tracking can be alternatively spent on other tasks, increasing your throughput.
Here are few ways in which people are helping themselves with getting alerts:
