Redesigning async communication for remote work.
Building awareness is the hardest part of remote work. We're rethinking from the ground up how remote teams communicate and cultivate progress.
In an office, there's a vibe. A natural setting that puts everything in context. People are swimming in information (for better or worse). Momentum, innovation, progress—feel more tangible.
Tools like Slack were made to supplement in-office communications by streamlining information overload. They start to fall down however when shoe-horned into becoming a team's primary communication channel.
When working remote, sharing and acquiring new information is deliberate. It takes effort, often requiring over-communication. Video calls and synchronous chat are still essential tools in the toolbox for most. But what about your team's daily, ongoing communication cadence?
Instead of relying on skeumorphic digital experiences that poorly replicate the vibe in an office, what would it look like to lean in fully to the benefits of remote / async communication?
These are our requirements for the future of remote work.
We're building Slog to make it infinitely easier for async teams to share progress and build awareness. Easier to build off each other and create a culture of progress from anywhere.
