GigJam Invitation Preview: A new way to work

A new product coming to Office 365 later this year that helps break down barriers between devices, apps and people.

What is GigJam?

It’s hard to take what you’re working on and share just a portion of it momentarily with someone else. This means you miss opportunities to accelerate work, get spot input or get instant closure on actions. For instance, you want the person across the table to help respond to an urgent customer email but you don’t want to hand over your phone in case they hit Send, navigate back or see who is on the cc: line. Similarly, you can’t selectively reveal a few clauses in a contract without leaving the entire file behind.

GigJam helps you spontaneously and momentarily involve others in your work. You just summon all the live information you need, circle what you want to share and cross out what you don’t and control what others can see or even co-work with you in real time. Now you can finally involve others inside and outside your organization to help you get work done in the moment.

Working without boundaries
  • Temporarily send over just the right paragraphs to your customer without leaving anything behind.
  • Summon your Outlook email and related Salesforce orders, hide the price, and beam the sanitized info live to their phone for editing.
  • Share a product photo with the person on your left, the photo plus a marketing deck with your colleague on the right, or pool all the information together on a 3rd person’s device.
Circle, Cross, Share
  • Just summon the documents, photos, calendar, email, and line of business information you need.
  • Circle what you want to share, cross out what you don’t.
  • Control whether people only see your live info or co-work with them in real time. It’s that simple.
Work, the way you want

GigJam removes the artificial boundaries between apps, businesses and devices. Now your phone can be a communal device, with each person free to summon, divvy up and share just what they want, for only as long as they need
