Email at work has certainly become a pain point for many employees. Notably, startups like Slack and HipChat bill themselves as email killing apps which can replace your traditional inbox with chat channels. While the verdict is still out if email's days are numbered, a French startup is trying is introducing an Office 365 add-in to help make your inbox more manageable.
Keluro's approach is focused on eliminating CC'd and forwarded emails from your inbox. Rather than letting your inbox fill up with CC'd clutter, team members can simply use the Keluro add-in to intelligently archive messages in shared channels. Organizations can create custom archive channels for projects, customers, or departments.
These channels can then be shared across teams so everyone has an archive to refer to when they need to track down some information. The archives can then be accessed either directly from Outlook Desktop and Outlook Web Access, or from Keluro's mobile app or Keluro's website.
Here is are some of the conveniences Keluro features on their website:
- Save time spent on cc’d and forwarded emails by introducing shared channels.
- Onboarding new team members becomes a breeze with a shared archive.
- Never again lose information in inboxes of employees that left your organization.
- Store messages from business partners outside your organization in a knowledge platform.
Keluro also boasts they have a smart algorithm to suggest shared channels for certain messages, and an "adaptive organization, archiving and visualization of emails ensures you stay on top of the most relevant information, all in one place." You can see Keluro in action in the video above.
