Annual Awards Program Recognizes Innovation in the Global Remote Technology Industry
SHELDON, Iowa, June 23, 2022 – Hibox, the first platform for businesses with AI-powered chat, task management, video calls all in one, today announced it has received the “Team Chat Solution of the Year” award in the 3rd Annual RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards conducted by RemoteTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout technology companies, products and services empowering remote work and distributed teams around the globe.
Hibox’s company chat is modern and visual with features similar to common daily apps. Users can share GIFs and emojis with co-workers to express themselves and as well as mention people in comments by typing ‘@’ and then their name. Hashtags can also be used to create discussions that can be seen in the search and filter box.
The internal chat feature is useful for both private chats or if a file needs to be shared with a group of people without spamming a stream. Additionally, Hibox’s chat is dynamic and intuitive when it comes to collaboration and organized conversations. Users can quote a message by simply dragging and dropping to add their own commentary as well as providing the ability to drag quoted messages to other streams to share with different teams.
Uniquely, Hibox utilizes Artificial Intelligence via a ‘personal assistant’ to help make the chat actionable. Based on patterns in messages, it can automatically suggest actions to be taken – such as assigning a task. Meanwhile, the notification center displays a history of everything that a user has been mentioned in, in order to see who ‘liked’ the message, or even a reminder if a task is due.
External integrations such as Dropbox or Google Drive in different private or public company chat streams also allows users to keep important business information in the same place, instantly searchable and always accessible – making file sharing in a conversation with teams simple.
Lastly, Hibox can be used either at the office or on the go with a mobile app for iOS and Android. Users have all their documents on their mobile smartphone, can chat with their team, and work on projects at any time.
“This award from RemoteTech Breakthrough is really special to me. I became the owner of Hibox after testing 5 or 6 other similar platforms. My team and I liked Hibox so much that I reached out to the owners to see if they would consider selling and they agreed – so here we are,” said Mark Trego, CEO at Hibox. “A well-loved feature Hibox offers is the ability to create and assign tasks while you’re chatting. This allows the conversation to keep flowing while no tasks or project goals need to be noted down and sent later. Hibox will continue to solve the need for a complete remote team communication and collaboration solution that’s both easy to implement and intuitive to use.”
The mission of the annual RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions and products in the remote technology industry today. This year’s program attracted more than 1,700 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“It’s just as important for remote workers to connect with fellow employees in order to be productive as it is in an office. Team chats ensure that employees can collaborate with ease eliminating communication barriers and fostering collaboration, ideas and even office bonding between workers,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards. “With Hibox, you can easily create user groups or projects via chats as well as share files and implement easy integrations. Hibox is truly the one tool any team needs to work remotely. Congratulations on winning ‘Team Chat Solution of the Year.’”
