“Not only do I love not having to spend time and energy understanding how to use a productivity tool, I love how every member of my team doesn't have to battle the simplicity either. It’s helped me spend less time understanding what needs to be done and more time doing what needs to be done.” - Justin Chick, Hanley Wood
“We are a younger organization with fast growth and a lot going on. Busybot has helped us keep things from slipping through the cracks and organize our tasks internally.” - Tanner, Awardco
“It keeps me on target with my deadlines, and gives me a baseline to check my work and make sure no important elements of the job have been overlooked. We've used it in the early stages of a project and it brings to light a lot of issues that we'd encounter or think about much later in the project. Doing that lets us better raise the questions at an earlier point in time, before our hands are tied.” - Daniel Burlew, Skyline Windows
“I really enjoy the ability to keep and track all tasks within slack and within the busybot page. We have migrated all of our current IMs, task and project tracking from Skype, Basecamp and Jira to using Slack and Busybot, along with Google Drive for document storage. Really enjoying the consolidation and team collaboration capabilities. Busybot has helped us to quickly turn standard conversations into action items with just a couple of clicks. It is super helpful in allowing everyone to see what open tasks are still pending for each project or for specific customer needs. We now track 100% of our monthly production tasks, and all special project tasks, via busybot. It has increased our accountability and productivity.” - Eric Smith, Align Broadcasting (DataTech)
“We learned how to use it pretty much instantly and it felt like the tool was made for us. We began to find ways of structuring our personal and professional tasks, […] and suddenly, our life was finally organized. Busybot was the main reason that we increased our productivity. It seemed that most of our cognitive load was being used to remain organized, but after using busybot, we were finally free to focus on each task at hand.” - Gui Bueno, Biscos
