Collage: Topic-driven business information Corporation
Collage–the 1st topic-driven add-on; your most important information in Outlook… organized by topic.

Collage is the world’s first ‘topic-driven’ interface; it turns your Outlook window into the one place where all your important business information comes together…organized by topic. Simply view an email message and all related information from business apps, documents, or social updates appears in the Collage Outlook sidebar. Making sense of all your disconnected information has never been easier.


  • Increase Productivity - Workers spend the majority of their day in email. By eliminating the need to toggle between disconnected apps looking for information, Collage keeps workers focused. The amount of time to complete work tasks drops considerably.
  • Reduce ‘FOMO at Work’ - It has been shown that the ‘fear of missing out’ at work causes stress. Collage ensures you stay up to date on critical developments, thereby reducing workplace stress.
  • Focus on What Matters Most - Missing an important task can be catastrophic. Collage keeps you up to date with important updates and notifications in your email window, ensuring you can attend to the most important tasks. ‘Dropping the ball’ at work will become a thing of the past.
  • Integrate the Tools Your Workers Are Already Using - In the new Digital Workplace, workers sign up for the cloud services that best serve their needs; without the approval of IT. By incorporating cloud service updates and notifications within Outlook and filtering them by topic, Collage empowers users to select the best cloud service tool for the job without having to worry about having another app interface to monitor.


  • Automated Topic Discovery - Collage uses machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) to automatically discover topics contained in business app notifications, email messages, documents, and social posts.
  • Automatic Topic Matching - Collage employs sophisticated matching algorithms to pair topics across many information sources. By creating a set of common topics, Collage enables you to attain clarity in order to deal with the most important matters first. You can accept or amend Collage’s suggested topics to match your own naming conventions. ‘Uninteresting’ topics can be dropped so that they do not clutter the information stream. Machine learning helps refine the topics most important within your organization.
  • Take Action ‘in context’ - Click on an item in Collage’s information stream; the corresponding native interface is opened to the appropriate record, so you can take necessary steps. This currently works for Office 365, Salesforce, Zendesk, and Yammer. More services are on the way. Alternatively, you can click on an email message or social update in the information stream. Collage enables you to participate in the discussion by opening the appropriate email message, Yammer or Chatter form.
  • Follow Trending Topics - Track top topics in your organization to discover what your colleagues are working on… and what might require immediate attention.
