I’ve written a number of times about Tali, the voice-driven time-tracking application, most recently in January, when it announced its integration with the Rocket Matter practice management platform. Today, I have three more updates to report about Tali: a partnership with the Ohio State Bar Association, integration with Google Assistant, and a soon-to-be-released integration with the team-messaging application Slack.
The partnership with the OSBA makes Ohio the first bar to have an affinity relationship with Tali. OSBA members who purchase Tali will receive a 10 percent lifetime discount off the price. The partnership will also open the door to other forms of collaboration between Tali and the OSBA, according to Matthew Volm, Tali’s cofounder and CEO.
Also new is Tali’s integration with Google Assistant. Until now, it worked only with Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled devices. Now, it can be accessed through any Google Assistant-enabled device. This includes both iOS and Android devices, as Google Assistant has apps for both. Here is a brief video showing the Google Assistant integration.
The Google Assistant app also includes chat capabilities, meaning you can chat with Tali using your thumbs through the app. Here is a video showing time entry using chat.
Volm said that Tali will also soon be available on Slack, Once available, users will be able to interact with Tali and log their time directly through the Slack workspace, just as they would through am Amazon Echo or Google Home device. It will work with any Slack application for Macs, PCs, tablets and mobile devices. Here is a video showing the Slack integration:
“We’re really excited about this, as this allows us to expand beyond voice but still apply conversational UI to solve the problem around time tracking,” Volm said. “It’s a great solution for firms of all sizes that are already leveraging Slack as a productivity tool (or considering using it).”
Volm said that Tali is looking for law firms and organizations that want to beta test this functionality. Anyone interested should e-mail him at email@example.com or chat with the company through its website at www.telltali.com.
