Do you know what a press clipping is? This method was frequently used in the era of print media. Companies used it to track where the name of their company was mentioned in newspapers. Press clippers were the people scanning the media for some clues on when and where their client’s name was mentioned.
Luckily, we’re living in a digital age and even though we still use newspapers as a valuable source of information, online media has become more important than ever.
Notify is a chatbot for Slack which does just that – it’s able to notify you whenever your company’s name gets mentioned. Articles, social media channels – Notify is able to track it and notify you as soon as you get a mention.
That way you’ll be able to respond to your customer’s queries in seconds and you’ll get perspective on how people see your company. Tracking mentions will enable you to position your brand better and give you valuable insights on where you are at the moment.
Daily or weekly standups are an amazing way to see what’s happening in your team. Not only employees get a better picture of the progress of some tasks, but they also learn about their co-workers struggles too.
However, sometimes holding a meeting can come with lots of distractions and disturbances. We agree, focusing on a large group of people is not an easy task sometimes. Another problem with standups is that some employees might be delayed from attending them or they just might call in sick and they lose the insight on what’s happening in the team.
That’s where Tatsu is coming in. It’s an amazing slack bot which helps you hold your standups without leaving your desk. All you need to do is to type “start” in your Slack channel and Tatsu will notify the channel that the meeting is starting and call on the first participant.
