The weekly content produced by the Twilio marketing solutions team requires the input and approval of external writers (contributors), marketing managers and key management stakeholders. Keeping everyone involved in the loop at the right time, without micromanaging or overwhelming anyone, started becoming a huge challenge.
The content creation, approval and publishing process were all initially managed manually in an Airtable workspace. Managers would constantly need to check for any changes, which team members they needed to assign tasks to next, or to remind themselves to submit their approvals.
There were two key pain points:
Twilio turned to AhoyTeam, to set up automated workflows delivered seamlessly to Slack that could be triggered based on specific changes in their Airtable workspace.
With simple notifications, management is now up to date when new content is approved and launched. Marketing Managers are notified of to-do tasks to review and approve content directly from Slack, exactly when it matters and is needed. Team-wide messaging to Slack in #channels is giving everyone a quick look into what’s going on, without ever having to leave Slack or nudge coworkers over DM’s.
Thanks to the AhoyTeam workflow automation, the Twilio marketing solutions team is able to save valuable time and get content from initial drafts to approval and publishing faster, without ever needing to leave Slack.
