Merge multiple channels

Send messages to Office 365, Slack, Source and SMS, all using one convenient platform.

Merge Multiple Channels

Put your employees’ preferences at the forefront of your messaging.

With Reach’s multiple-channel integration, you can seamlessly add platforms like Office 365, Teams, Slack and more to your internal communications, all from one platform. Your employees will never miss an update again once they can choose how they prefer to receive company messaging, and your engagement rates will get higher, too. That way, you’re not spamming—you’re simply communicating the right way, every time.

All of our features are backed up by our proven 7 principle methodology, so that Reach is grounded in the foundations of effective communication.

Synchronize Channels

A variety of channel options

The more channels you connect, the more ways you can get in touch with your employees. Reach currently integrates with Office 365 (and as a result, Microsoft Teams), Slack, SMS, and IC Thrive’s Source intranet platform.

Synchronize with ease

Using Reach’s seamless integration with Office 365, you’ll gain back precious hours in your day that you would have spent painstakingly organizing your employees. We’ll integrate all of your team members as part of our onboarding process. The best part? After that, your system will sync and automatically update.

Employee preferences

Some of employees may prefer to receive a company message via text; others might hate the idea and opt for the classic email option. With Reach, each individual employee can set their own order of channel preferences, including for urgent messaging.

Strategy selection

Choose to send each message as either “normal” or “urgent,” with options to use a specific channel, send in a specific order if it doesn’t reach employees the first try, or send according to employee preference.

This comes in handy in cases of crisis communication. During an emergency, time is of the essence. Not only do you have to get your message across quickly, but you also need to make sure your employees receive it. By selecting the “urgent” strategy option with Reach, you can blast a message directly to employees’ mobile phones, or to every channel they have connected.
