April 26, 2023 — Connecting tools is an essential part of streamlining and improving workflows and boosting productivity. In fact, over 80% of enterprise business leaders say data integration is critical to ongoing operations.Similarly, at ARInsights, we understand that analyst relations (AR) teams require different tools to perform their jobs and collaborate with each other effectively. Life is so much easier when those tools work together, right?

To help you increase efficiency, our product roadmap has been full of high-impact, easy-to-use integrations, like our Google Workspace and Microsoft Outlook connectors. And now, we are very excited to announce the launch of our newest integration — ARchitect Notifications for Slack! With tens of millions of people — and 77 of the Fortune 100 — using Slack to communicate, share ideas and connect their teams every day, we know this will be a useful integration for many of our customers!

With this new integration and without leaving Slack, you can now get automatic notifications about:

  • Analyst and influencer profile updates (e.g., Who’s changed firms? Who’s now covering what?)
  • Changes tracked in ARchitect, including to influencer interactions, projects and more
  • Important coverage from analysts and influencers (of your business, competitors, industry, etc.) in their research, quotes in the media, blogs, tweets and LinkedIn

You can also stay organized by connecting notifications to any Slack channel.

To get started using this tool, you enable the integration from within ARchitect. To do so, follow along to this tutorial video:

The steps are:

  1. In ARchitect, click the Notifications bell in the top right of any page
  2. Click “Manage Notifications” on the right side
  3. Select the “Settings” tab and click “Get Notified Via Slack” in the Slack Settings area
  4. Log into your Slack account and choose the channel to receive notifications
