As the enterprise collaboration space continues to grow, partnerships and integrations are becoming increasingly important in order to truly streamline workflow. At Symphony, we know that you spend time in any number of applications each day, so it’s important for us to support the work that you do in all of them. And who better than to integrate with for productivity than the original enterprise collaboration tool: Microsoft Office™?

Here are a few new capabilities to look out for with our new Symphony for Microsoft Office™ integration...

Escape the Email Avalanche

Some conversations linger much longer than they should in email chains. With Symphony for Microsoft Office™, you can move email conversations into real time by bringing them into Symphony with a single click.

Dude, Where’s My Co-Worker?

Knowing where co-workers are and when they are available is a fundamental issue that we all face every day in our dynamic workplace. Can I reach Anna via chat? Is Jason out of the office? Is Katherine in a meeting? Knowing the best way to reach someone saves you valuable time in your workday.

When your colleagues are in a meeting, their online presence is updated in real time in our platform. The same goes for out of office events. This lets you know immediately what the best way is to reach, or leave a message, for your coworkers.
