Doorbell Arcade Notifies Employees Through the Functionality of Slack
Workers at Redpepper's offices are informed via the messaging platform when a visitor has arrived at their lobby
Offices are extremely busy, making it easy for visitors to sometimes feel unwelcome even when they're there to meet someone. The company Redpepper, a brand building service, have had this issue as their lobby bears no receptionist. To reconcile the problem, they've hacked an iCade arcade game where visitors scroll through 8-bit figures of employees and choose who they're there to see then promptly notifying them via a Slack doorbell in the messaging system.
The system works exactly as any arcade system. The visitor first begins on a start screen, which was modeled after the city they reside in, Nashville, with their company name at the top. There were no existing Nashville 8-bit models, thus they had to create their own.
