McKinsey Global Institute released a study that says “the average office workers spends up to 42% of their time looking for files and searching for documents.” But now there’s an app for that. The enterprise and team messaging app ChatGrape is launching publicly this week. It claims to be a “more intelligent” Slack or HipChat.
ChatGrape COO Leo Fasbender told TechCrunch the app reduces the “look-up factor” – “when linking to and referencing external information, such as a document, calendar entry, or code repository update, from within the app’s chat box.” Users can also preview files and information as part of the look-up process which also saves a lot of time. ChatGrape is backed by Betaworks and Zynga founder Mark Pincus.
