Extract from Brad Harris’s article “Webinar Recap: Managing the Vast Volumes of Dynamic Slack Content for Ediscovery With Ease”
As the coronavirus pandemic has left most knowledge workers clocking in from home, we’ve seen a rapid acceleration of organizations using collaboration tools like Slack to keep their teams in touch. But while collaboration tools have significant benefits for team communication, they’re not without risks.
At Hanzo, we often hear about unexpected challenges that organizations encounter when extracting discoverable data from their Slack channels and other collaboration tools. To help explain those challenges and demonstrate a solution, I recently presented a webinar on how to “Manage Vast Volumes of Dynamic Slack Content for Ediscovery With Ease.”
Here’s what was on the agenda.
Benefits of Collaboration Tools Like Slack
How do you keep your employees connected when they can’t be physically near each other? By giving them collaboration tools that include everything they need for at-a-glance coordination on shared work, including instant messaging, integration with other productivity and project management apps, and in-line file attachments. Companies use these collaborative tools to improve productivity, often with great success. We’ve heard of organizations reducing the volume of emails by about 50 percent and reducing meetings by 25 percent just by adopting a collaboration platform. With shared channels through Slack Connect, companies can even replace their external emails with Slack messages.
