The second day of the conference (but for us, already the fourth) of our entrepreneurial research began in the company of one of the biggest. Cal Henderson from Slack, a business solution for IT, marketing and the like, a solution that has quickly expanded among users (two-thirds of their users were even in the hall present at the conference — a coincidence?). Cal gave us a quick insight into their mode of operation and growth, and it was here that we found they have quite a few things in common with 3Gloco. A coincidence? 🙂
“If you work in companies with hundreds of employees, it’s far more difficult than if you are working in a small team where the entire team can participate,” he said, revealing, first up, a benefit of startups.
Today, communication is different than it used to be. For example, ten or twenty years ago, we all communicated via e-mail, when talking about online communication. There were no social networks like today, especially not for business purposes. “Today, if you are organizing, say, an evening, socializing with friends, you probably do not send them a mail, but do it through a social network. This has become a trend and an even bigger trend will see business integration, in the same way,” says Henderson. It’s really just the beginning; it may be difficult to suddenly persuade people to stop e-mailing and start messaging within an application. But that’s only true at the beginning, once they start … they can’t stop.
The key to modern ways of communication within companies is that it can be adapted to all types of employees, even in companies that integrate several different sectors, from IT, sales, marketing, recruitment … “ Each area brings together different people and very often communication stops. There is some noise when one group has to communicate with another, and another mode of communication is used in a circle of self-styled collaborators. When we find a solution that is adopted by all groups, we have succeeded. The mode of communication is what makes businesses more successful. Teams work better in an environment where communication is common, more than one-to-one,” adds Henderson.
3Gloco is for small businesses, what Slack is for multinationals
If they had met before, they would have thought that they already knew the 3Gloco platform that came with the December beta edition. Share a deal will enable just that — professionals will not only do the job, but they will connect, coordinate, and talk — in a group! Imagine — and this is the truth! — Today, the biggest companies are buying really cheap tools in order to be able to operate effectively. They try to connect them, but of course it does not happen, unless they again give tens of thousands of euros to create their own platforms. And this is only done by multinationals.
