We created Yakk to fix a huge problem that we have faced in every project we have ever worked on:

All projects use email as their principal method of communication and collaboration

So what's wrong with email?

  • Email requires context switching which has been shown to greatly disrupt your workflow.
  • 40% of time is spent dealing with emails that add no business value! That's the equivalent of coming into work on Monday and not doing any actual work until Wednesday!.
  • Email is an unfiltered stream of data that requires your attention to decide if it's relevant or not.
  • Searching email is slow and inaccurate.
  • Email is often used as an excuse, i.e. "I emailed Melanie the other day... she's dealing with it now!".
  • File sharing via email is incredibly frustrating and wasteful.
  • Email infrastructure is incredibly expensive at scale.

We were just like you: Frustrated trying to cope with the firehose of email we received every day and decided to do something about it.

We are a small, dedicated team whose goal is to rid corporations of unnecessary email-based communication. This is our contribution.

Our rapidly growing list of clients are over the moon with the results they are getting with Yakk and that makes us happy.

Please give it a try and let us know what you think... we would love to hear from you.
