Harmon.ie, a company that develops Outlook add-ins for Office 365 users has announced today Collage, a new add-in that brings together information from different cloud services, social tools, and more to make the email client much more useful. The company calls its Collage the “first topic computing solution” that will help workers address information overload, all within Outlook.
The Outlook add-in can connect Office 365 users to various services and tools such as Salesforce, Yammer, Zendesk, and more, and the company says that its Collage technology leverages machine learning and Microsoft Graph to add topical context to your information. “harmon.ie Collage eliminates app noise and removes the need for workers to open multiple, process-specific applications and email chains by automatically organizing them by topic within Outlook,” shared the company. “The advanced, topic-driven sidebar allows workers to see the big picture while staying focused on the topic at hand—be it a specific product, customer, project, campaign or service.”
Collage works with Outlook on the Web, Outlook 2013 or later and Outlook 2016 for Mac, but be aware that you must have an Office 365 or Exchange email account to use it. If you want to try it, you can get the Outlook add-in on the Office Store.
