Email is the universal communication tool for work. It's where you discuss work, answer questions, and talk to all of your customers, vendors, and partners. But email wasn't made for business and hasn't evolved to help you work with a team. So you're dropping the ball, missing important context, and relying on many siloed apps that make you less productive as a whole.
