“Now, not only can employees see information that they need, but they can also actually interact with it by leaving comments, sharing sentiment reactions, and even completing a task in an external application without ever leaving their Akumina Intelligent Activity Stream.”
“For many organizations, remote work is here to stay; and businesses need a digital workplace hub to connect their distributed workforces,” said David Maffei, President and Co-Founder of Akumina. “On their October earnings call, Microsoft shared that there are more than 115 million daily active users counting on Microsoft Teams as their primary collaboration tool. We were able to anticipate the growth trend in Microsoft and in Teams, specifically, and invested heavily in ensuring that our software can work seamlessly with or even inside of Microsoft Teams.”
The most recent Akumina release has been hailed as their most prolific yet, with features like Intelligent Activity Streams, which surfaces interactive information from hundreds of supported application integrations, all in an infinite-scroll, Facebook-like interface. Users receive sponsored communications from their employer through intelligent content targeting, engage socially with colleagues, subscribe to personally-relevant content, and provide feedback directly to their leadership team, all within their personalized Intelligent Activity Stream, which now can also reside within Microsoft Teams.
