Bananatag Amplifies Employee-HR Collaboration with New Tech Capabilities
Today, Bananatag announced game-changing new features for better employee communication in large companies.
World-class companies rely on world-class employee communications tools to engage employees.
According to a survey, the mismanagement of internal communications can be a costly event for any business. While the global workplace moves toward a ‘deskless’ environment and contactless management, businesses without strong internal communications infrastructure could lose up to $62 million USD annually. HR Communications platforms are key to building the next-gen social enterprise– the future of work beyond 2020.
Remote workplaces no longer pose the hurdles that were once found to affect their performance and effectiveness. Today, managers and decision-makers in the companies find themselves relying on a wide range of communication tools — email, web messaging, chatbox, virtual assistants, and social media, to stay connected with their employees and effectively communicate within seconds.
From booking appointments to scheduling meetings and team huddles online, there is so much going on with the current crop of HR Tech solutions offering workforce communications. Bananatag is one of these hot startups in the HR Tech domain working cohesively to enhance employee experience with great Cloud solutions.
Today, Bananatag announced game-changing new features for better employee communication in large companies. Known for its employee email solutions, the HR tech startup unraveled new and upcoming features for Slack, Microsoft Teams and other collaboration platforms. The new integrations would allow sending and scheduling messages from Microsoft Teams and Slack–letting organizations manage their multichannel internal communications from a single platform.
Most HR teams still use email communications for their review and feedback management. We know that email trends are evolving, even as the latest Customer Experience trends from B2B and B2C also influencing internal communications.
At the time of this announcement, Bananatag CEO Corey Wagner said —
“The global events of 2020 underscored the importance of providing timely and accurate information to employees. Now more than ever, leaders are realizing how essential it is that they are equipped to reach the right employees with the right message at the right time–especially during a crisis, when seconds matter.”
Employee communications via email are likely to further evolve as users prefer leveraging customized, pre-built templates to choose their messaging style. In most cases, due to lack of customization, employee messaging lacked the tone and “directness” that showcase the human side of the business.
With Bananatag, users can demonstrate their messaging skills through ‘real-time editing’ features, similar to the functionality Google Docs is known for, to the world of employee email. Users can see who else is editing, what they’re working on, and add comments–live–within the email designer. Bananatag also supports version history, letting users easily switch between current and previous versions of their email. These features are ideal for HR and Communications teams that need to collaborate quickly to disseminate timely, branded, measurable emails.
A reliable and transparent employee communication platform could dramatically cut down production time.
Bananatag’s new Microsoft Teams and Slack integrations represent another significant transformation for the company, bringing a multichannel experience to their popular email platform. Users can select the best channel for their messages, whether that’s an email distribution list or a particular channel on a chat platform.
This joins Bananatag’s current integrations which include the ability to design and send measurable, on-brand employee communication directly from Outlook or Gmail.
These new features are already being rolled out on select Bananatag plans, and are available for anyone to demo now.
Currently, Bananatag is the platform built for Communications and HR teams in large organizations to reach thousands of employees with modern, measurable employee communications. Used by over 550 companies around the world–such as IKEA, Samsung, & HR Block–Bananatag lets users collaborate to design, distribute, and measure email communication, as well as send and schedule messages on Microsoft Teams and Slack.
