Within your team, you’ve likely already got a smooth flow of communication. You’ve established a structure because it’s necessary for efficiency, and generally, you know who needs to know what information, and when they need to know it. But communicating beyond your team? That’s where things get sticky.
Our latest product updates were built with that exact issue in mind. The release includes a new alerting system for Microsoft Teams, AI-powered digests, and some custom reporting—all designed to help you spread the (important) word more efficiently.
But why does that matter? And how do you pull it off without wasting anyone’s time?
We believe that the more people have data for decision-making, the better. Which is why, at NewsWhip, we’re doing everything we can to make that data available.
The demand for data (on demand)
If you often feel like you’re drowning in a sea of notifications, you’re not alone. It’s kind of amazing we get anything done, considering at any given time, on multiple devices, we’re getting an email about a mega sale at a novelty candle store we went to once, an Outlook reminder is prompting us about a meeting that’s about to start, and our favorite coworker is sending us a meme on Slack (or, aware of what we’ve just launched, Teams!).
To truly capture what remains of our limited attention, we need clear information in real time. It’s not just: the more data the better. It’s which data, how it’s shared, when it’s shared, and with whom it’s shared. And we think when used well, data brings three benefits to your team and its stakeholders — accountability, confident decisions, and speed.
1. Accountability within teams and beyond
All that said, we’re designing NewsWhip with your limited time and resources in mind.
Our latest release includes a Microsoft Teams integration, directly sending any updates within your chosen parameters to the Teams channel you select.
To get started, simply create a Teams channel with whatever stakeholders are relevant to the specific topic, question, theme, or project. Decide which types of alerts you want, sit back, and wait for the notifications to trickle in. No need to constantly check your email or communicate updates manually—this integration delivers the information you want to exactly the people you want, in real time.
With all your stakeholders on the same page, making unified, effective decisions will be more efficient than ever.
2. Confident decisions come from Custom Reports
It’s safe (and probably obvious) to say that the key to making decisions with confidence rests in data to reinforce those decisions. And for bigger, impactful decisions, you might just need more detailed information than you normally would. We want you to have that data at your fingertips.
Enter our Custom Reports—curated by NewsWhip’s team of experts and powered by NewsWhip data. Custom Reports empower you to gather and package the data you need in whatever format you require. A micro examination of a particular topic at a specific time? Easy. A macro look at several topics and public engagement? Done.
Ultimately, Custom Reports give you flexibility when it comes to analysis. They provide the ability to dive deeper into the data that matters to you, and the option to ignore the data that doesn’t. So you can have just the data you need to make confident decisions.
3. Act quickly with AI digests
Time is of the essence, communication is key, etc. Annoying clichés, perhaps, but they exist for a reason. When it comes to making decisions for your organization, data has the power to harm or help that process. Too much or clunky data can lead to analysis paralysis, but organized, relevant data can help you make decisions faster than ever.
We’re always working to refine how our data is presented, making it as intuitive as possible. So that it can be shared and understood without extensive context or explanation, saving you and your team precious time.
In November, we’re adding the power of AI to our digests for a balanced and in-depth view of any topic, in as little time as possible. Our new digests will include AI-powered smart summaries of search topics and dynamic timelines showcasing media and public interest trends to help you make quick, informed decisions.
Data that works for you
Having the information you need at your fingertips, structured exactly as you need it, and provided in real-time will not only make it easy to get all your stakeholders on the same page, but will help you make efficient, informed decisions with confidence.
