It’s 9:00 and you’ve just come to work. One of the first things you probably do is go through your emails, and check the multiple tabs you opened on the previous day. Then, you'll move over to cards moved and created on Trello and check updates on Asana. And finally, you'll hop onto a team communication tool and other project management apps.
If your routine looks like this, you're probably a product manager.
Innovating on a product and simultaneously handling multiple projects is no cakewalk. And we realize that it can get a little overwhelming when you have to use multiple tools and software to make sure everyone in your team is on top of things.
But here’s the silver lining. With Flock, we’ve made all of this easier for you.
Wondering how? Here’s a roundup of everything that you can do with Flock to be a more productive product manager.

Ace marketing and communication

2. Read website traffic with Google Analytics, on the go
Numbers never lie. And who better to turn to for reliable numbers — than Google!

3. Handle email marketing with MailChimp

With Flock’s integration with Mailchimp, you can receive Flock notifications every time a user subscribes or unsubscribes from your mailing list. And you can use these timely updates to further sharpen and inform your user retention strategy.
With Flock as your team communication and collaboration tool, there’s so much more that the Flock universe has to offer when it comes to external apps and integrations.
