Unison – Clear Up Team Communication

Unison is a web-application that offers a faster, more organized way for teams to work together. Aimed at reducing group email and improving visibility for management, Unison helps teams efficiently move their projects through the pipeline from beginning to end.

Rather than relying on email for group communication, Unison relies on a series of online “rooms.” Create separate rooms for each of your teams or projects, and you can privately share status updates, files, and feedback. Each room you create will contain multiple topics, with comments underneath each. Rooms are private, which means only the people who’ve been personally invited to join a room are given access to the content you’ve posted. In fact, non-members can’t even see that a room has been created unless they’ve been invited to join. Rooms sync immediately across smartphones, tablets, and computers, so your team stays connected throughout the day.

Unison hasn’t forgotten the importance of one-on-one discussions, either. Users can chat privately through the platform via text, voice, or video at any time, and those conversations will sync immediately across all mobile devices. In addition to communicating with members of your own team, you can use Unison to communicate with people outside of your company (like clients or freelancers), as well.

Practical Uses:

  • Manage multiple group projects at one time
  • Stay updated on the status of a project while traveling
  • Host a video chat with a colleague
  • Seek advice about a task you’re working on with your team

Insider Tips:

  • Post text, images, or files in any Unison room
  • Room creators can edit rooms and add new participants
  • @mention a teammate by name to get that user’s attention
  • Unison supports both video and voice calling

What we liked:

  • Only room members can see a room and its contents
  • Discussions are automatically organized by topic
  • Conversations are synced instantly across all connected devices
  • Users can collaborate with people both inside and outside of their companies

What we didn’t like:

  • Nothing
