Not really a tattoo-related post, but I wanted to do a little write-up on an extremely helpful app I stumbled upon. It’s called Sameroom.
My company uses Slack for employee communication, and it’s amazing. Not having to deal with constant one-off emails about things that don’t actually pertain to me is the absolute best. But there’s one drawback: my friends, SO, and other companies we work with use Google Hangouts/Skype/Facebook messenger to talk to me during the work day. I HATE switching between multiple messaging apps (on a normal day it’s around 5-6 separate clients). Usually I end up missing an important message or have a delayed response to something I want to reply to immediately.
This is where Sameroom comes into play and is a complete game-changer for me. Sameroom is a company that “speaks all the protocols.” For me, this means I can integrate my Google Hangout and Facebook messenger conversations INSIDE of Slack (my main chat-client), so I never have to swap between them. It’s customizable so it can be set up in any way you see fit. My company usually has around 10-20 projects involving external parties at a time, which can lead to a communication nightmare. With Sameroom, we have the ability to integrated their preferred chat client into our own with an extremely painless process.
