How can I improve team collaboration and productivity?

EtherMeet captures important call events so that team members can stay focused on their daily work. Even if you miss a meeting, EtherMeet captures important information so you can easily review the most important parts of the discussion at a later time. 

EtherMeet also allows meeting participants to capture the most important topics, tag team members outside of the meeting, and route those call parts to them in Slack so they are directed to the appropriate team member to review.

How does EtherMeet compare to other video conferencing software?

While video recording is available on video conferencing solutions like Zoom and Bluejeans, TherMeet has two important characteristics. 

1) Real Time Call Part Routing: EtherMeet allows users to route call parts in real time with an “@mention” to users in the Slack channel to watch, listen, and reply – or join the active call. only EtherMeet uses artificial intelligence to track the most important topics in a call. We call this our Delorean feature.

2) EtherMeet provides Artificial Intelligence to learn what is important for members of the Slack channel based on what is said in the calls, and what is typed in the channel over time.  This contextual learning provides great accuracy and relevance for keyphrase extraction and summarization of each call – as well as smart alerts and search across calls in a channel.  We call our AI system “Channel Minds.”  Each Slack channel has a unique Channel Mind.
