The last missing pillar of internal communication - One to One and group messaging!

We have been quite silent over the summer months while we were cooking up a whole new area of the ahead intranet.

🔽 Top-down communication

We have you covered here with News and Pages

🔼 Bottom-Up communication

You and your colleagues can shoot away in Stories!

🔁 Bilateral communication

Here's where the new feature comes in!

It targets our customers that do not have a messaging system in place for all their employees - in the new messages section they can now search for colleagues and write them a message or create groups with several colleagues to organize work-related things quickly and efficiently.

The conversations overview gives you access at the most recent conversations

You'll have a new place for messaging-related notifications in the command bar, showing that there is someone who wants to get in touch with you.

Now you can get in touch with the author of some page for questions or to give 1:1 feedback, or you can create a group to message all the people working in the same department as you. The people search you know and love from the search bar will help you find the right people:

Find people by name or even by location or department

Once your conversation is active, start messaging and have realtime conversation with people of your company.

Realtime messaging from within ahead

Naturally, all of this also works on a mobile browser.

If you're interested to see it in action, get in touch with us.
