The WizyRoom numbers

No comments

Research says that 50 to 60 % of the knowledge worker’s time is spent orchestrating work rather than actually working. This includes two hours a day looking for information, another two hours on email, about an hour scheduling meetings, and an hour and a half attending those meetings.

WizyRoom wants to cut down on this chunk of inefficient time. We want to do this by making most of the files you need available inside the app; cutting down on emails; replacing at least some of the time spent in meetings with chat conversations and efficient task management; and building chatbots to connect employees with the data inside enterprise IT.

It’s still early days, but these are the numbers we have been getting from research done on WizyRoom’s first users:

Percent decrease in internal email: 90%

  • Conversations in chat groups have almost eliminated email among team members.

Percent reduction in tabs: 30%

  • Docs, spreadsheets, links, and notes are filed in the chat room where these files are needed, easily searchable at any time. This has cut down the need to shift from one browser window to another.

Percent reduction on time spent searching for files: 50%

  • An example is how the marketing department of one company now files all their blog articles and emails in one chat room, instead of keeping individual files in different folders in the company’s Drive.

Percent increase in task management efficiency: 33%

  • In our own customer success usecase, resolution time of customer tickets was reduced more than 30% because tasks are assigned and attended to more easily.

Percent reduction in looking for enterprise information: 80%

  • Conversational chatbots will give the info needed almost instantly, instead of employees having to look into different files and software to get what they need.

How WizyRoom increases efficiency with Drive file sharing

No comments

How much time do you lose every day trying to find the files that you need?

When you’re looking for something, you probably use the search bar in Google Drive. This usually works great at getting you what you need almost instantly. But sometimes — especially if it’s a shared file created by a colleague and you can’t remember the file name — you spend at least a few minutes searching. On certain occasions, you give up and just email the person who shared the file with you.

You ask, “Can you share file X with me again?” The few minutes of searching can extend to a couple of hours waiting for the colleague to respond. By that time, you would have moved on to another task. Some more time passes before you can actually get to that file you were looking for. Talk about an efficiency drain!

WizyRoom offers you the solution to this unproductive situation. The task management and chat application makes the organization of your documents, spreadsheets, images, and forms easier.

All your team members will create or add the files relevant to a topic inside the chat room devoted to this topic. This way, when you’re looking for a file, you only have to go to inside the chat room, and click on the Drive tab. Find the file you need in the list, or use the search bar. Not sure what chat room to go into? Search all rooms.

If every day you only had one difficult file to look for (and often there are 2 or more), you save from a few minutes to a couple of hours by using WizyRoom.

Take control of your Google Drive with WizyRoom

No comments

WizyRoom saves time and takes away confusion because it allows you to create and share Google Drive files right inside the chat rooms, where you work with your team.

In the chat thread, you can do any of the following: create a note, add a task, create a Google Calendar event, add an existing file, and create a new Google Drive file.

The result of any of these actions is automatically shared with members of the chat group. For example, you add a Google Doc inside a chat group by clicking Add Existing File or Create Google Drive file in the chat stream. This file is then instantly accessible to everyone inside the chat group. Your team members can make comments about the doc by clicking Reply beside the chat message.

Clicking this Reply button will also open the threaded conversation about the file. You will find this in the right sidebar. Never lose the flow of discussion again!

To make working together easy, everybody can find files, notes, tasks and events right inside the room. Go to the Drive tab to find all files. Tasks are of course in the Tasks tab. The tab labelled More contains links, notes, upcoming events, and emails clipped into the chat room using the WizyRoom Chrome extension.
