Spotted: Today’s employees are often overwhelmed with information dispersed across a confusing array of different applications. And manually searching for this information can be a time-consuming distraction. In fact, San Francisco-based startup Dashworks highlights that the average employee spends 13 weeks per year tracking down information across apps.
In response, Dashworks has developed software that aims to be the go-to place for all of the internal knowledge in a company. The customisable laptop start page centralises all the information that normally gets distributed across Slack, email, Dropbox and other channels. In addition, it also has the ability to broadcast company announcements, display FAQs, and share bookmarks.
Dashworks currently hooks into over 30 popular services – such as Airtable, Asana, Confluence, Dropbox, Gmail, Google Drive, Intercom, Jira, Notion, Slack, Salesforce, and Trello. Employees can simply type a question into the search bar and receive a response based on the knowledge gathered from all of those aforementioned channels.
To provide peace of mind that all of this collated data is secure, Dashworks explains that its product is SOC-2 certified, meaning it has been assessed by external auditors against five ‘trust principles’. All data is wiped from the company’s servers when a customer unsubscribes from the service.
Dashworks recently raised $4 million (around €3.5 million) in funding to support its further growth.
Other recent computing and technology solutions spotted by Springwise include a privacy-focused search engine with no adverts, and a de-identification solution that anonymises data used by AI applications.
