zero email

A goal of eliminating internal email between employees. Emails sent between members of a project with multiple conversation threads become fragmented and unwieldy when users forget to "reply to all" instead of the immediate sender.

Using various collaboration and project management tools, everyone in the project is kept up-to-date and working together on a single thread of information. The only email in a Zero Email initiative is between external suppliers and customers. See blueKiwi ZEN.

blueKiwi ZEN

A collaboration platform from blueKiwi Software. Designed for internal messaging and collaboration within an enterprise, blueKiwi ZEN is touted as more efficient and less time-wasting than sending email. Atos, the parent company of blueKiwi ZEN, created a three-year Zero Email campaign in 2011 to have all 76,000 employees worldwide adopt the software and eliminate email for internal projects.
