You didn’t know you needed it until it happened: Slack just got even more efficient.
Remote businesses all over have been using Slack as their go-to means of checking in, and it’s easy to see why. Slack is basically the patron saint of in-house communications apps, which means it’s just about perfect for businesses where employees are rarely in the same place; what, you ask, could possibly make such an efficient program MORE efficient?
Well, in this case, Brisbot.
Brisbot is an automated office mom of sorts. This AI–built specifically for integration with Slack–is able to answer frequently-asked questions such as “what’s the wifi password?” and perform multi-step tutorials, making it more or less Slack’s very own Siri.
Save man hours
Slack is already all about saving man-hours and making the most of the time you spend working, and Brisbot takes that concept one step further. It’s not as if most offices have someone waiting around to answer any questions the workforce might have–that would be a waste of a paycheck.
Therefore, Brisbot occupies a difficult-to-fill niche: in-house employee service.
Rather than asking fellow employees for feedback regarding system basics or work-related regulations–questions that they then have to take the time to answer, which is never conducive to productivity–you can simply send a query Brisbot’s way, and it will give you quick and concise feedback. Better yet, if the question hasn’t been asked before, Brisbot will ask for a routine answer for the next person who asks. This allows you to customize Brisby to your heart’s content.
Save jobs too
Brisbot is an excellent example of an AI eliminating a common productivity problem without cutting down on employment rates. Its mere existence signals a rise in awareness regarding the smallest of productivity breaks; employers are realizing that the biggest wastes of time and money come from little, day-to-day setbacks much more than highly-visible lapses in efficiency.
The bottom line
If you use Slack, Brisbot is a must-have. If you don’t, keep Brisby’s philosophy in mind; if you can find daily time-sucks and eliminate them as you go, you’ll see a remarkable upswing in efficiency as a whole.
