Slack + Rimeto: a business communication leader reimagines the company directory

Bizcom leader Slack has acquired Rimeto, a builder of world-class enterprise tools, to help them provide a whole new concept for the typical company employee directory.

Rimeto is a powerful cultural tool that helps strengthen employee ties to each other and to their work…a key concern given today’s work-from-home struggles to stay connected. We all want to understand the people we work with and have context around their lives. Employees with weak social ties to their colleagues aren’t as happy or productive as employees at companies with a thriving, healthy culture. And the typical enterprise directory in use today is about as connective as a phone book – and usually less informative.

Rimeto offers an enterprise-wide, searchable directory that automatically integrates information from across your company and delivers rich profiles of every employee and their skills, experience, and current projects. It’s a natural fit with Slack. Channels make it easy to find the information you need and understand what your team is working on. The point is not only to make it easy to find the people you need to connect with, but also to better understand the humans you’re interacting with.
