Most people today in white-collar jobs likely started their careers using email to communicate at work. Adding documents as attachments to email messages was, and for some still is, a very convenient way to share information and drive work. Some also mark messages as unread to create reminders to act on later. This is a very simple To-Do system and functions well in an email-centric work.
As the use of documents exploded people started organizing them by creating named folders in their Windows systems. The simplest way to find documents when needed was to use the Windows search function. This too worked well as long as one remembered a snippet of the document name.
As simple as these systems are, they simply don’t scale in today’s online world. Now there is a constant flow of information not only through emails, but chat messages, social feeds, and documents on the cloud with unlimited storage. The documents are no longer just text-based but frequently include images and videos. Most people still use their memory and employ multiple searches across all these information silos to find information when needed. This is extremely inefficient and stressful.
Clariti offers a simple but elegant solution to this painful search problem. Automatically connect all related information in TopicFolders that can be named in ways that are meaningful to you. A TopicFolder can include emails, chats, documents and social feeds among others. TopicFolder preserves context that is otherwise lost when the related information is stored in silos.
Since the information is automatically organized in TopicFolders with recognizable names, it is extremely easy to find when needed. Additionally, Clariti provides the ability to Flag TopicFolders that are displayed prominently in the software and serve as reminders of work that is pending.
So even when the information is spread across many media and formats, when it is all connected, it collapses into manageable threads. You now no longer need to do multiple searches and connect all the dots in your head. The relevant information is now served on a platter, or should I say “in a TopicFolder”.
