Making team communication efficient on email

How many times have you heard someone talking about ‘doing emails’ or feeling the frustration of sending the email and it disappearing into the etha, never knowing if you’ll get a response.

It’s no secret that email has been a bug bear for a lot of people and teams. In its current form, email doesn’t equip teams and companies for high performance. A necessary evil of the business world users continuously complain again and again about the same issues including email being a huge task and a bottle neck to productivity.

So much so that the media are always quick to jump on any kind of potential ‘email killer’. None of the options out there have done the job yet though – that’s where Loop comes in. Currently there’s over 2.5 billion daily active users sending over 269 billion messages and that number continues to grow. Loop can make every one of those messages work harder and here’s how.

For us it was about reinstating great teamwork. Whether your team all sit in one place, or like us is spread all over the world, collaboration needs to be seamless. You need to be able to loop in suppliers, discuss ideas in real time and flag potential issues easily. We want you to be able to focus on what you communicate, not the way you communicate.

Speed of communication

One of the primary complaints we hear all the time about traditional email platforms is that the speed of communication is a big issue. People want to communicate online and in real time – just like they do when they What’s App their friends outside of work. They crave this kind of instant communication in the workplace – especially when you add the day-to-day pressures of looming deadlines and responding to customer needs.

Let’s face it though, traditional email is a chore. What with formal greetings and sign offs, CCs and BCCs, signatures and attachments.
