At Hanzo, we’ve focused on collaboration tools for the last few years—and, as it turns out, we weren’t a moment too soon. The upsurge in remote work due to the coronavirus pandemic means that more workers than ever are working from home. Online collaboration tools have taken the place of meeting rooms, offices, and water coolers. When it comes to collaborating on documents and spreadsheets, many teams are using Google Workspace (formerly G Suite). But even with Google Vault, it’s surprisingly challenging to collect just the data you need from Google Workspace when you’re managing ediscovery for a litigation matter.…
For the last several months, the Hanzo team has been building artificial intelligence models using grant funds that we received from Innovate UK’s Sustainable Innovation Fund.

For our part, we’re looking for ways that we can extend Hanzo Hold, our purpose-built Slack ediscovery tool, to address the new workplace risks that accompany the abrupt transition to remote work. …
If you—or your child—have ever been in a live performance, you know that it hardly matters how much time and effort the cast and crew have put in: the moment that curtain goes up, everything changes. Actors who know their lines perfectly well in a quiet room or at a table read will suddenly be tongue-tied. Props or wardrobes that seemed flawlessly designed and executed will turn out to be unexpectedly untenable. That’s why directors insist on dress rehearsals—they know that pressure can unravel the best-laid plans.…

At Hanzo, we talk a lot about the collaborative content companies generate in communication apps like Slack. However, instant messaging isn’t the only way collaboration happens, and Slack isn’t the only place where team members work together.
