Workflow to your destination

Workflow to your destination

We were delighted to introduce our second Birmingham Slack Community Chapter event, ‘Workflow to your destination’. The event was hosted by our very own CIO, Karl Nicholson, who is a volunteer leader of the Birmingham Community Chapter.

The Slack Community Chapters are regional social groups organised by a volunteer who engages with their local community and like-minded individuals with a common interest for Slack, the intuitive business communication platform. The Birmingham Slack Community Chapter Channel is free to join by anyone who is interested in how Slack is helping to shape the future of work.

Karl was joined by two fantastic speakers in this session, Thomas Boudier, Technical Product Marketing Manager at Adaptivist, and Jordan Egan, Commercial Account Executive at Workato.

Thomas’ engaging presentation focussed on Slack’s Workflow Builder, showcasing how businesses can automate routine processes, such as automating travel requests,  onboarding welcome messages and alerting Dev Teams of any required bug fixes, as just a few examples!

Thomas’ insightful presentation was followed by Jordan Egan, Commercial Account Executive at Workato, who was demonstrating Workato’s intuitive Workbot solution for Slack, a chatbot that helps businesses to monitor and interact with business applications from within Slack, enabling tasks to be completed “more efficiently and faster in the new way of working”.

We were then joined by one of our talented Automation Engineers, Juweria Farah, who provided an insightful demonstration of, ‘Beyond Workflow Builder’, showcasing how we use Workflow Builder to develop more intricate workflows. Juweria presented a live demonstration of ‘Leavers’ bot’, a live use-case demonstration of a workflow designed to help enhance returns and collection processes, a fundamental improvement for those operating in a remote-working environment.

The webinar was finalised by an engaging Q&A discussion between the viewers and panel.
