We use Hipchat to organize our team communication, we noticed that there are some actions that often repeat in the different teams. What we did was take all this small tasks and create tools that allow teams make decisions faster.
What it does
With Convergely you can
- schedule messages to be delivered some time in the future
- assign tasks
- annotate images
- create simple polls
- notify your teammates if you are blocked
Challenges I ran into
One of the main challenges is that we need to built our tools in a way that they help the team work better while not being a distraction in the conversation.
What I learned
We have learned a lot along the way with Convergely, and we are already adding more functionality around team communication.
What's next for Convergely
Convergely its planning to integrate better with the Atlassian ecosystem, we want to be able to schedule projects, messages and tasks.
