CEO Gray Skinner says Screenbot raises relevance of workplace sharing and for many companies displaces email use entirely.
Droplr, the original fast and easy file-sharing service announced the release of Screenbot, a brand new app allowing teams to communicate visually in Slack. Slack has completely revolutionized the way teams are communicating, even eclipsing email for many enterprises, but up until now sharing screenshots, annotations and screencasts has been a cumbersome, multi-step process. Built on top of the powerful Droplr API, Screenbot brings all these essential forms of modern collaborative communication right to Slack teams.
“Screenbot has the potential to completely revolutionize the way my team communicates. Instead of having to send paragraphs of text to explain what’s on their screen, they can share a screenshot in a single keystroke,” said Jason De Santis, design support for Campaign Monitor. The phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ rings true when you’re chatting with a team member.”
Screenbot was conceived when Droplr realized how many times a day they were sharing screenshots and annotations on Slack so they decided to build a solution. Four months later, Screenbot was getting rave reviews from beta testers and today they are thrilled to be releasing it to the public.
“Droplr identified the value of desktop sharing and built an app for it. With the release of Screenbot, we are providing yet another tool to serve modern workplace communication,” said Levi Nunnink, CTO and founder of Droplr. “In a future where anonymity will continue to dominate the way we work internally with teams and externally with customers, Screenbot eliminates confusion and enables users to get their point across efficiently while increasing productivity.”
Screenbot will be launching as an official free Slack Integration. A pro upgrade is available for $5.00/month, which includes a pro subscription, unlimited sharing, custom themes and domains and privacy settings for sensitive data.
Droplr is the original simple sharing app that thousands of creative professionals and businesses rely on every day to quickly share what they’re working on. Droplr was founded in 2009 and continues to be the market leader in simple sharing.
