There it is, staring you down, that giant red box constantly reminding you: you have 161 unread emails. They’ve all hit your inbox in the last two hours. And the worst part? Three-fourths of them are from your internal team.
If you’re in the business world, you know all about the nightmare that is a flooded inbox. Fortunately, the Kinetic team discovered a technological wonder that’s changed everything for us. It’s called Slack, and it has truly transformed the way our team works.
But don’t take my word for it. Let’s look at what the Kinetic team has to say about the Slack app.
THE OWNERS SAY:
“Slack has been truly life changing for us as owners. We can see where every project stands by reviewing the channels, and thanks to integrations with Dropbox and Outlook, everything’s in one place. It’s a serious timesaver and makes it easy for us to stay connected with everything that’s happening inside the agency.”
OUR ACCOUNT SERVICE TEAM SAYS:
“Slack is great, especially in the era of working remotely, because it allows the team to efficiently communicate and collaborate. Having different channels for each job helps keep us organized and allows us to quickly refer to messages, documents, and links related to a job. The ability to quickly jump on a call and screen share for internal reviewing purposes is also so helpful in terms of getting projects finalized and ready for the client.”
OUR COPYWRITING TEAM SAYS:
“Revisions have never been so easy! Slack gives us quick, easy access to everyone all the time. Say one of us is working on a draft. We can send it through and get feedback within the hour. That streamlines the revision process and allows us to produce and proof our projects more efficiently. We’re in love!”
OUR DESIGN TEAM SAYS:
“There are a ton of reasons to love Slack, but the best thing about it is how it lets our team be more collaborative. We can have back and forth chats, huddles, or meet and screen share over a video call. The screen sharing feature has been a real game changer, because we can show the team what something looks like in real time and get instant feedback that allows us to make changes as they come in.”
OUR I.T. DEPARTMENT SAYS:
“No more subfolders! No more crowded inbox! We get a lot of requests for help, so access to Slack allows us to screen share and troubleshoot more easily. Even better? Everything that’s currently sitting in our Slack channels would be in our inboxes, and it’s easy to lose track of things. Slack keeps everything organized, and it’s easy to sort through and find something if we need to refer to it again.”
When something isn’t working, change it. When something’s working well, celebrate it. We’ve found that Slack has revolutionized the way we work as a team—and whatever helps us be better deserves some serious praise.
