Convo is a platform for work conversations.
The dynamic in which teams communicate in the work environment has drastically changed in the past few years. In some cases, Slack and Google Hangouts have replaced the need for e-mail or even traditional phone calls. Convo is a Slack-like platform designed to help companies more efficiently communicate with each other. It’s available on both web and mobile, offering a simple news feed with all work-related conversations. The news feed will be familiar to anyone with a Facebook account, as you can even “like” and comment on each post. While those posts are more generalized, you can also send private @mentions to specific members of your team.
Convo has a few other features that set it apart from a mostly text-based platform like Slack. On Convo, for instance, you can highlight and annotate images that’ve been posted. You can also organize and join different groups, and integrate third-party apps like Google Drive or Twitter. It’s a full-service software for the modern business, and the best part is that it’s free for up to 20 users. Companies with 20+ users pay $9 per user per month, and there’s also an “Enterprise” option with custom pricing for unlimited features. For such a relatively affordable price, Convo is worth trying out to better manage your company’s communications. E-mail is already starting to seem outdated.
