As we all know, every organization generates hundreds and thousands of conversations through many disconnected apps like emails, chats, and social feeds. It may get overwhelming to keep all the information organized and quickly accessible when needed. Consequently, important information gets lost and communication suffers.
Though Microsoft Teams and Slack brings all communications like emails, group chat, and calls in one place, the related communications are not connected. Yes, theoretically, you may be using a single application for all your official communication, but all the conversations inside these applications will remain fractured making it hard to put together. Which means your conversations will remain disconnected though you will be technically using a single app. If you want to search for a presentation or a message from your colleague, you will have to search multiple channels to get the information.
Thus, when you use Microsoft Teams and Slack all your communication will remain disorganized, shallow, and chaotic. With multiple, simultaneous conversations happening every day, you will begin to lose track of things. Ideas will be proposed, discussed, and forgotten or worse ‘lost’. It will be impossible to refer back to a decision that had been made or to neatly preserve the information so that other teammates could find it later. According to an American Management Association survey, 83% of executives think their companies have information silos and it has an adverse impact on their business.
Clariti on the other hand not only brings all your emails, chats, online meetings, shared files, social feeds, and tasks in a single app but also links related conversations through topic-based threads. It facilitates focused discussions on specific context-based topics so that information naturally stays structured. For example, you may receive an email and you may you want to discuss with your colleague regarding that email. In Clariti you can start chatting from the email with another Clariti user. The recipient can see the context that you are referring to – without you having to forward the email! Later, both the email and chat get neatly arranged inside a Thread which you can name.

All the subsequent related conversations are automatically stored in that Thread. Few months down the line, when you want to go back and refer to a prior conversation or file, all you must do is remember the context and look inside the relevant Thread. In Clariti, no matter what was discussed and when it was discussed, you will be able to see the big picture in one view since all the communication is connected.
Clariti’s Thread makes it remarkably easy for you to have several conversations about different topics simultaneously, without losing track. By sticking to one topic per thread, you and your team can easily keep track of parallel conversations and stay up to date on what’s happening. Clariti makes sure that everyone in the team can find the information they need with clearly named topic-based Threads even years later.

Another issue with the disconnected but real-time apps like Slack is you have to be online all the time is to keep yourself updated on the latest developments happening within your team. Since all communication is disconnected, you would find it very difficult to catch up with all the conversations of the previous day without context. Moreover, these apps are meant to promote instant communication and they cannot be used to preserve history or promote transparency.
So, the compulsion to be online all the time and be constantly distracted by the pings and notifications can lead to more pressure, stress, and frustration. This will be felt more when your team is really big and spread across different time zones.

Clariti will allow you to focus on real work and catch up with your team when you are ready. Since all the information is neatly arranged in Threads, you can refer back to any issue even years later.
