Say goodbye to emails & hello to digital collaboration tools

Digital collaboration tools

Maybe you’ve already reached the point where you communicate and collaborate via Confluence, Linchpin intranet, Jira, as well as with Hangouts Chat and other Google G Suite tools. However, you know all too well, there’s always that one person that hits “reply to all.” Maybe someone received a customer email, has attached their comments/questions, and has now forwarded it to 3 or 4 people? At first glance, it doesn’t seem that dramatic, right? Over time, however, it can snowball into a chaotic series of replies, forwards, and quoted emails.

AEC Linchpin: A behind the scenes look at our remote event

Last Thursday, March 19, 2020, we here at //SEIBERT/MEDIA were planning on holding our Atlassian Enterprise Club Day an in-person event in Wiesbaden, but the unexpected coronavirus pandemic has thrown us a curveball that we needed to adjust to. Rather than canceling the event, we converted it to a remote event. We live-streamed the event via our YouTube channel. After our live AEC show, several participants asked us about the technology that we used. We wanted to give everyone a more detailed look behind the scenes here in this article.

NGK Spark Plugs: a Google G Suite success story

NGK Spark Plugs is one of the world’s leading automotive suppliers.
