Introducing SaneData Dashboard for Teams

An average organization spends 28% of its time reading and responding to email. That’s a lot for something that’s not part of anyone’s job description.

Since you can only “manage what you measure”, today we’re announcing SaneData - a dashboard that can give you a comprehensive view of how your team is doing with email.  Now you can see what your team’s email time really looks like, and incentivize good behavior among your team.  What’s more exciting, we have already seen how this data (in particular the Inbox Zero score) encourages friendly competition among employees, leading to better productivity and lowering that 28% down to something more reasonable!

As Jesse Pujji (CEO of Ampush, a fast growing ad tech company in San Francisco) says: “SaneBox’s email efficiency and analytics suite is incredible!  It has made me significantly more effective with communication but more importantly, our team of ~100 people have gotten better/smarter/faster with email management.  The Dashboard allows for game mechanics and competitiveness to drive people to efficiency!”

The SaneData Dashboard lets management (and anyone else) view the following metrics: 

Emails Received: # of emails received by the team member during the time period selected

% Important: what % of received emails was important

Daily Low: what’s the lowest number of emails you had in your Inbox (go Inbox Zero!)

Inbox Zero Rank: AKA the SaneBox Score - this is a rank that tracks how efficient you are at processing email

Emails Sent: # of emails sent by the user

Reply Rate: what % of emails sent received a reply

In the coming months we will continue to add more metrics to help manage and optimize the time companies spend on email.

Heartbleed

As you all, know on April 7 the OpenSSL project issued an advisory (of which NSA has apparently been aware of for 2 years).  We deployed the updated OpenSSL libraries on Tuesday at 7am EST and renewed all of our SSL certificates.

We take security very seriously (take a look at the newly launched Security page where you can see if anyone has accessed your SaneBox account), but you should too:

a) Enable 2-factor authentication for every site that offers it (http://twofactorauth.org/)

b) Use unique and random passwords for all your services via 1Password or LastPass

c) Have a long and difficult to guess but easy to remember password for 1Password or LastPass.  Think of a phrase or refrain from a song.  “Billy Jean is not my lover, she’s just a girl who claims that i am the one” becomes bjinmlsjagwctiat1 - a 17 character password that’s impossible to break but you already remember it. But it’s critical that you never use the same password for multiple services – so if one of them is compromised, others are safe!

Introducing SaneSubjects

One of the top feature requests over the last couple of years has been to allow filtering by subject.

If an email subject contains (or begins with, or ends with) a specific term of your choosing, we can filter that email into your selected Sane folder.

Here’s what it looks like:

Introducing SaneFax!

When we started SaneBox 4 years ago we vowed to fix communication overload. Until today this revolved around email – after all an average professional spends 28% of their time reading and replying to email.  But we haven’t been blind to developments in communication: Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and, of course, fax.  After doing a lot of research and speaking with hundreds of customers it became clear that the volume of facsimile messages has been exploding in the recent years.  To address this growing problem today we are excited to announce our latest product – SaneFax.

 

As customers have come to expect of our products, SaneFax will be completely seamless. After entering your fax number on our site, SaneBox will act as a filter on your facsimile device.  Urgent messages will be allowed to go through, while less important memos won’t be allowed to interrupt your day.  Once a day you will get a digest of your unimportant faxes.

As always, training SaneFax is easy.  If an unimportant fax managed to pass through our filter, just send a fax back to the sender with “not important” written somewhere on the paper. Alternatively, if a fax is important just reply with “important” in the message. We’ll intercept it and adjust our algorithms on the fly.  It’s that simple!
