Every company has its own ever-growing list of acronyms and terminology that are designed to save employees time and improve recall of the underlying meaning. Unfortunately, acronyms are so common in our language that their meanings are often misinterpreted. And, as well as being hard to stay on top of, they can also lead to confusion and anxiety for new staff members.
According to The Muse, while some of us have the guts to ask for clarification when we have no idea what’s being said, others cringe at the thought of asking potentially “stupid” questions.
Using an Acronym bot, staff can privately look up phrases they’re unsure of, familiarize themselves with popular company terminology and submit new acronyms for review to be added to the directory.
This allows users to look up any company acronym from a database. If the acronym exists, they get the meaning. If it doesn’t exist, they have the option of adding it if they know the meaning or submitting it for review to a database manager if they don’t.
