Say goodbye
to e-mail

Email is for handshakes
but NOT for working together in a team.

Say goodbye to e-mail

Why email is bad
for your business

Are you still using email for your company’s internal communication?
If so, then it’s most likely decreasing your team’s productivity.

When Ray Tomlinson created email, it revolutionized the way we communicate. We were finally able to stop relying on phones and snail mail. We were free to get in touch with people from all over the world with just a few clicks.

But that happened in 1971 – over 50 years ago.
Since then, we’ve discovered that email, especially when used for business collaboration, has its flaws. The major ones include:

multiple queries

Multiple queries
in one email

People try to be ‘productive’, so they send you multiple questions on different subjects… in one email. Making it even more difficult to process.
reply all

CCs, BCCs, Reply All…

Just to make sure you don’t offend anyone important or leave someone out, you include almost every team member in your email…
buzz and noise

The buzz and noise
of unwanted mail

…and you also get copies of everyone’s emails, too. Even when the described matter doesn’t concern you at all.
Inbox infinity

Inbox infinity

Without proper everyday maintenance, your inbox will infinitely grow with tons of open and unprocessed emails, causing you to forget about stuff that needs to get done and creating delays.
mixed and lost

Important stuff gets
mixed and lost

Even the most important emails can get lost in your Junk, in other folders, or in a never-ending pile of newsletters and ads.
email are not secure at all

Not secure at all

Emails travel through the web and are stored on servers unencrypted and in plain text. Basically, anyone can get ahold of your confidential business correspondence.

So, let’s say it out loud:

Email is not good for your business. It’s a blast from the past.

The good news is we’ve got a solution

that will help you finally ditch email…

…and boost your team’s productivity.

Use email just for handshakes

When communicating internally with your team, you should use email exclusively for handshakes, not collaboration.

Why handshakes?

A handshake is the beginning of your teamwork. It’s the initial point.
When you start building your team in Nozbe, you send invitations to your colleagues using their email addresses. They accept the invitation and create their accounts.
And that’s a handshake.

Then, you start collaborating with them using tasks and comments.
And you never have to send emails to each other again. It’s that easy.
