A few years ago, we set out to improve communication practices within individual teams. Distributed teams were becoming the norm, and e-mail inboxes everywhere were getting cluttered with notifications from a growing number of web-based tools. If you wanted to reach your team members, you would crank up the ol’ email client.

Fast forward to 2015. Flowdock is a powerful tool that helps teams and organizations introduce a big positive change in their communication practices. It reduces the need for meetings by allowing you to communicate across the organization when needed, not during the next sync meeting or free calendar slot. The team inbox in Flowdock receives all activity notifications from your team’s tools, keeping your personal email inbox a much happier place.

Today, we’re launching a new product: Flowdock Enterprise. Flowdock Enterprise includes all the wonderful qualities of Flowdock, and builds on top of it with enterprise-grade security features, improved administrative controls and full enterprise user management integration, including single sign-on and automatic provisioning and deprovisioning. We are launching with out of the box support for OneLogin and Okta, and support any SAML 2.0 compatible SSO provider.

Other highlights include custom data retention policies (choose exactly how long discussion data should be stored for) and an even stronger enterprise level security framework based on the NIST 800-53 Rev 4 industry standard. See our enterprise features page for a comprehensive list. We will keep growing the feature set of both Flowdock and Flowdock Enterprise based on your feedback. We currently have lots of good stuff in the pipeline, specifically notification improvements and configurability.

If you want to see Flowdock in action and hear from our customers and partners, sign up for our Collaborating across teams webinar series.
