Crossroads ♥ Slack, Wunderlist & Metabase
We're big fans of tools that simplify and streamline our workday, whether it helps us prioritize, communicate or analyze.
Also known as the "email killer", Slack has quicky come to be our favorite medium for internal communication here at Crossroads. Using their wide range of integrations, we keep our various teams interconnected and constantly aware of what's going on in the building. Digital communication has never been easier!
Wunderlist is the unsung hero of todo lists. With their intuitive tools for grouping, sorting and sharing tasks, as well as their awesome integration with Slack, the gang at Wunderlist really has produced a wunderful (see what we did there?) application, that lays important groundwork for collaboration here at Crossroads. Furthermore, their spot on mobile app makes it super easy to jot down that heureka idea when you're on the run!
Metabase almost deserves a newspost of its own – the BI-system that makes data accessible for all amployees, whether or not your SQL is "fluent" or not. Our team members runs hundreds of BI reports a day that helps them consume vast amounts of invaluable data in an easy-to-digest manner from data sources such as our ERP, e-commerce systems, Google Analytics, our customer service helpdesk and more. In addition, thanks to our friends at Picler, we've installed a real time dashboard running Metabase on a 48 inch screen in a prime location at the office. This makes it easy to check out sales of the day, or the current number of active customer support tickets on your way to the water cooler – awesome!
