Slack: Our Favorite Business App
Get ready to have your team communication skills boosted to the next level. If you’re not already using Slack, you’re missing out big time. Slack is a business messenger application that allows you to keep in constant communication with your team and tools just like a group chat does.
Here are some reasons why we love it!
1. Great for smaller startups
This cloud-based system is a fantastic collection app that is wildly popular among smaller startups. It boosts efficiency amongst your team, and allows you to do things like share ideas, discuss projects details, share articles, keep updated about the competition, and brainstorm.
2. Everything is in one place
You can easily organize your groups by channels (direct, group, and private) so everything is easy to find. Ex: #articles, #competition, #products, #projects, #passwords etc. You can even ignore channels that aren’t essential to the projects you are working on at the moment.
3. Instant Answers
Slack has real-time messaging that allows you to get answers, approvals, and opinions quickly. No more rummaging through your long list of emails; easily update your team without all the stress and frustration. You can even put up an icon that lets people know if you’re in a meeting or out sick.
We give this collaboration tool five stars. According to Slack, “We’re building the platform that connects teams with the apps, services, and resources they need to get work done.” They do just that and more.
