Amsterdam, The Netherlands 12/04/2018 – Social intranet platform Happeo announces a global integration with Slack, the world’s leading collaboration hub, and Google’s new tool, Chat, to give the Internal Communication department the help they need to drive conversation to the most suitable channels.
The integration allows selected posts from channels in Happeo to be directly sent to one or multiple channels in Slack, or Chat. This way employees get to choose where they continue the conversation. The integration creates a two-way communication stream, bridging the gaps that isolated Software as a Service (SaaS) tools can create.
“Information silos are the death of any company’s growth” says Perttu Ojansuu, CEO and founder of Happeo. “Communication within companies and teams doesn’t scale when conversation gets lost or becomes inaccessible. Centralizing company communication and work into an ecosystem of tightly integrated platforms is the future; we call it the Intranet of Things. Our integration with Slack and Chat is a step closer to that ideal. This means employees own the conversation – and the place it happens – keeping them happy and engaged.”
Modern-day technology has disrupted the way companies communicate. Email gets lost in a box, instant-messaging conversations are fleeting and traditional intranets don’t push conversation enough. Different communication platforms serve different communication needs, making integration the only way to prevent information silos.
Mike Klein, Principal of internal communications consultancy agency Changing The Terms says: “In my research, internal communicators around the world are calling for more integrated solutions. For those fortunate enough to be G Suite customers, Happeo offers unprecedented integration – working across Gmail, Docs, Calendar and now Chat. Adding an integration for Slack users makes it an even more compelling proposition.”
Happeo is the leading all-in-one digital workplace platform that empowers internal communicators to connect with employees in entirely new ways. The platform brings together intranet, collaboration and social networking into one unified solution. Large enterprises and fast-growing organizations, such as Randstad Sourceright and Groupe Chantelle, use Happeo to reach, engage, and listen to more than 220,000 employees worldwide and unlock the value of employee engagement.
