How Bots Are Going to Work to Increase Efficiency
Bots Streamlining the Global Workforce
Konsus is an on-demand outsourcing platform for business tasks. The company’s founders are in Norway, but the other 122 employees are spread out across 38 countries and 15 time zones. "With everything so distributed, you can only imagine what a nightmare it would be to get hold of everyone working on different projects, get status updates and schedule meetings," said Fredrik Thomassen, CEO and co-founder of Konsus. After trying different technologies, the company turned to Geekbot. Based on individual time zones, when employees first log in to Slack, Geekbot messages them, collects responses, and then posts on the Slack common channel. It even follows up twice with people who don't respond at once. "This has helped really speed up our processes and stay caught up on everything being done to make sure the business is on the right track," Thomassen added.
