Watson Workspace  is a real time collabotation app with following features:
  • Group & individual persisten chat

but what is making Watson Workspace different between competitors is are the cognitive capabilities guarantee by Watson and the availability of Webhooks API, Graph API e Cognitive APIs that made ths team collaboration app an application platform capable to integrate collaboration and corporate Application like CRM or ERP

The cognitive feature available from start is named "moments" that allow users to summarize conversation in key points with 1 click.

  • French
