One can never discount how important communication is within an organization and teams. It’s the brick-and-mortar that helps employees become more productive, engaged, and even motivated at work. Based on Press Services’ data, 85% of employees become more engaged at work when internal communications are effective.
This goes to show how crucial communication is—but it doesn’t always go that way when it comes to communicating between teams, especially when these teams are remote. There can be a lot of reliance on communication and productivity apps to make it easy to communicate. But even then, it always seems like employees tend to fall into the trap of seeing too much to process. Whether it’s through email or group communication apps, employees would still have to keep up with how their teams communicate with each other.
Fortunately, this is a concern that more and more leaders and organizations see as vital for their companies. Digium has released a report stating that businesses that adopt a unified communications phone system see a 52% increase in workplace productivity, which, naturally, leads to a 25% increase in operating profit.
And to make things even more interesting, according to Ultimate Software, 92% of employees believe that having the technology to improve their efficiency at work directly affects their job satisfaction. It only makes sense, then, that teams and organizations begin using technology to support their daily productivity and, more importantly, prevent themselves from drowning in too much information at work.
This is the goal TheGist has created for businesses: they want to leverage generative AI technology to increase productivity by simplifying information creation and consumption with just a click of a button.
Getting TheGist of It All
TheGist’s algorithm works well to go over previous conversations and instantly create a summary for employees. This means that employees don’t have to go through hundreds of posts or messages in threads because they immediately catch up with their team’s important discussions.
Mainly used in Slack, the summaries TheGist creates are for the employees only and don’t have to be shared with other team members. And they can make use of the Daily Digest for selected channels, which they can also customize depending on their needs.
But more interestingly, employees can integrate TheGist with their Gmail accounts. They only need to connect TheGist with their Gmail by signing in with Google, connecting their Gmail account, and approving permission.
And what it does is that it uses AI to quickly go over employees’ unread emails and cluster them into categories. Important emails are placed in the Priority category, and each email is summarized. Other categories can also contain subcategories and can all include batch actions such as “mark as read” to help employees clear out non-important emails quickly.
Regardless of what employees use, TheGist is always focused on privacy, and it never saves any personal data. With their infrastructure being hosted using AWS managed services, all their applications have the highest standards through AWS compliance with dozens of security frameworks and standards.
A Modern Approach to Streamlined Communication
All over the world, more and more companies are choosing to go remote, and this can be a great help for companies, especially because it already improves their productivity (77% of employees, based on the Remote Collaborative Worker Survey). Fortunately, with tools like TheGist, teams all over the world will no longer have trouble with information overload, missing important information, or having to juggle multiple communication apps.
And in a time when communication with teams is more important than ever, making use of TheGist can vastly improve their productivity. Whether it’s organizing how employees communicate or preventing information overload, TheGist is here to stay.
