There are a lot of great reasons to structure your organization as a distributed team: more flexibility for staff, less financial overhead for the business, and a wider talent pool to draw for example. However, distributed work is not without its downsides:
- Decreased transparency
- Communications challenges
- Lack of culture
Still, for the growing firm or the established enterprise looking to expand, the benefits greatly outweigh the drawbacks. If only there were a way to leverage the benefits of distributed teams and compensate for some of the downsides. Now there is and her name is Alice.
Alice is an AI bot that lives in Slack and holds your distributed team together. Think of her as the Executive Assistant that has been with your company since its founding that your employees can turn to for help and guidance. Alice helps keep your remote workers plugged into the organization and automates many of the mundane tasks that sap your staff’s valuable time and creativity. By integrating with services such as Trello, Jira, and Github, she makes sure that you and your management team have easily digestible reports on all your projects’ statuses. Her daily agendas and weekly goals provide a great way for team leaders and firm leaders to set goals on both a granular and sprint level.
Need a specific integration? No problem, Alice can be customized for your specific need and she can talk with most popular project management and account management systems. Want to do develop a custom bot for your organization? Let us know!
