The newly launched product Hibox, by Joincube Inc., integrates group chat, tasks and videoconferencing with Artificial Intelligence for enterprise communication and automatically recognizes tasks in chat messages to convert them into trackable projects.
“When working on our previous venture, Joincube, we experienced first-hand the challenges of running a dynamic team split over different countries and time-zones,” said Spencer Coon, COO and Co-founder of Hibox. “E-mails are too slow and important information often fails to get the attention of people who need it in time to meet our tight deadlines. We built Hibox as a tool that delivers company information instantly and organizes our work with tasks so everyone knows what needs to get done next.”
Hibox is designed to streamline internal communication regardless of whether the team is located in the same office, or on other sides of the world. With Hibox, instead of emailing a colleague and waiting for a reply, users can open a chat directly with them, share files, documents and photos within conversations and see when messages have been received and read.
Hibox differentiates its messaging app even further by automatically recognizing tasks with Artificial Intelligence. This is made possible by a proprietary algorithm that applies Machine Learning to recognize patterns in users’ behaviour and identify when a chat message sent is likely to be a task (ex. “Could you send me the latest version of the presentation?”). Users are then given the option to easily convert that message into a trackable task with a simple click, making sure no to-do’s are left unfinished.
“We have achieved remarkable success with our previous product Joincube, reaching over 5000 companies in Latin America,” said Mariano Rodriguez, CEO and Co-founder of Joincube Inc.. “With Hibox our biggest challenge will be to build on this momentum and expand our market with a truly global offering. Unlike competitors such as Slack and ChatGrape, Hibox is designed to be used by real businesses of all shapes and sizes, not just tech-savvy startups.”
Hibox was created in Latin America by the same team that launched Joincube, the leading enterprise social network in the region with offices in Buenos Aires, Santiago and São Paulo.
