Software Description:

Geekbot is a slackbot assistant that helps users set up real asynchronous stand up meetings within Slack. The solution helps staff stay organized, up-to-date and aligned with the rest of the team. It only takes a few minutes to set up an initial standup with team members.

Geekbot creates a non-intrusive process to help teams stay focused on tasks. Each department can have its own timeline which is helpful for complex projects. Multiple standups break down information and distribute it to the right people directly.

Some of Geekbot's default set of questions include:

  • What did you accomplish yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • What obstacles are impeding your progress?

Users can adjust and customize questions for each standup to better fit the department or team, as well as set a personalized tone. Geekbot can understand simple chat commands such as ‘login’, ‘report’, ‘off’, and primary users can choose who has privileges to edit, and who will be limited to reporting.

All information is distributed through Slack as well as inside the dashboard environment, where users can perform a variety of added actions such as report filtering and additional insights. Users can download standup data by clicking the ‘download CSV’ link manage their email summaries and more.
