Introducing Papr: A task assistant that keeps your projects up to date
A new AI-powered personal assistant that lets you manage tasks with just one chat. Now available on Microsoft Teams.
We’re excited to announce the launch of Papr, a task assistant that keeps your projects up to date, and its availability on Microsoft Teams. Using Papr, task owners and project managers can focus on building products customers love while letting Papr handle the tedious side of task management. With just one chat, Papr allows you to create new tasks, assign tasks to co-workers, update existing tasks and view your tasks. Papr connects with existing project management tools, starting with Wrike, a collaboration tool used by thousands of companies around the Globe. To get started with Papr, add it to Teams here.
Our team is made up of top-notch product leaders and engineers who have worked on speech recognition, autonomous cars and other fun problems. We’ll tell you all the details about how we got together some other time. For now, just know that we all hated hearing ‘can you update your task in X tool’ or ‘take a look at Y tool to see what tasks I’m working on’. We’re all about agile and leaving the tasks we’re working on to update something in a tool is the opposite of agile. We wanted a better way, talked to a couple hundred potential customers and they felt the same way. This helped us realize that the problem was real and decided to build Papr to solve it.
“We’re excited to see the integrations our ecosystem partners are creating for the Microsoft Teams platform, built on Office 365, enhance the overall experience we’re delivering to our users,” said Bhrighu Sareen, General Manager for Microsoft Teams at Microsoft Corp. “Papr’s experience for Teams enables people to achieve more through a task assistant that keeps their tasks up to date.”
Papr lets you focus on completing tasks by simplifying the task management process. With a simple chat, Papr helps you add new tasks, view relevant tasks and update them. Plus, Papr is powered by AI. This means that it understands natural language. Just like any new team member, Papr takes some time to ramp up to better understand your intent during a conversation. The more you use it the faster it ramps up and the smarter it gets.
Teams users can get started with Papr by going to www.papr.ai and clicking on ‘Add to Teams’. Once Papr is added, it’ll walk you through the setup process. This includes connecting Papr with a project management tool – today we support Wrike. After you connect Wrike to Papr, or create a free Wrike account if you don’t already have one, you can start using Papr by saying things like ‘add a task called Create architecture document and assign it to @john due in two weeks’ or ‘view tasks due next week in the #BetaLaunch project’.
