In order to deliver value to remote teams, it is important to deliver real engagement. This means focusing on a chat experience that genuinely builds rapport, creates meaningful conversations, and recognizes important team contributions. One of the biggest barriers to accessing this level of engagement is making it work with the teams already demanding schedule. It is always difficult to find a balance between work tasks and company culture. This is why many companies do not provide easy ways for team members to connect during business hours.
Finding this balance has been a consistent challenge for our team. Making sure that our service does not conflict with already proven team events has been key in seeing our engagement grow. We are continuously working on ways to build better admin functionality in order to deliver a configurable system that provides valuable insights.
Our latest product update was focused on providing additional flexibility around chat activation and scheduling. Now as a Slack admin you can turn on/off any of our chats, choose which channel you would like to see it in, and choose which day of the week you would like our Slack bot to start conversations with your team.

ChatFox is a Slack chatbot that builds remote team culture. Remote teams that only engage through projects, tasks, and deadlines do not foster a culture around shared values and goals. Build a strong remote team culture, improve remote team productivity, and eliminate team member isolation. Use ChatFox Icebreakers to build rapport with team members, use ChatFox Coffee Chats to have meaningful conversations with people across your organization, or use ChatFox Shout Outs to recommend a colleague and endorse their skills. Unlike other remote team solutions, ChatFox looks at remote team culture from a strategic perspective and has created engaging chats for your team that provide management with insights into remote team engagement, skills, contributions, and mobility.
