Boost Staff Engagement With Timely, Relevant & Effective Instant Messaging

Get Started!

Instant Messaging (IM) is a game-changer for getting work done. Keep staff up-to-date faster and better than before. Maintain collaborative, meaningful online discussions.

Why Choose Instant Messaging?

Team Collaboration has never been easier. With IM (also known as Chat) no-one is left out of the loop. Timely decisions can be made without delay. And there’s no more drawn-out, puzzling email chains to contend with. Message lag and associated apathy is reduced.

Instead, real-time content attracts engagement from staff. Social aspects such as #hashtags, @mentions, personalization and emojis appeal to staff, increasing user adoption and enjoyment.

Move away from one-sided, one-way communications to more collaborative, idea-generating group discussions.

MyHub’s Intranet Instant Messaging

MyHub’s team chat application is designed for the modern workplace. It will keep you and your colleagues connected – regardless of device or location. A key part of MyHub’s social intranet software solution, our IM tool is fun and easy to use.

MyHub’s targeting features ensure only relevant content is sent to staff. This noticeably reduces email overload while providing useful, circumstantial information. Tagged channels, threads and messages ensure previous discussions are simple to search for, saving time and improving fact recollection.

Knowledge Management and idea-sharing freely take place in open forums, while your confidential conversations are visible only to those invited.


We Make It Easy to Chat on Every Platform

“I find instant messaging great for quick decisions, building rapport, and ‘chatting’ with my co-workers. In many ways, it’s even better than having an in-person desk chat, as you can add funny emojis and more!”

What Is Instant Messaging?

Instant Messaging – also known as IM or Team Chat – is a popular form of real-time communication. Used widely across almost every type of organization, staff use Instant Messaging to send short-form, text-based messages between their computers or mobile devices.

While it resembles the speed and immediacy of a phone conversation, its text-based format can also provide helpful features such as Search, Tagging, and Attachments.
