How has Slack benefited your company?
I am a small business owner looking into using Slack for my company. I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on how it has benefited their company? (communication, everyday work flow, etc)
Thanks in advance!
Communication on Slack is real-time and SUPER fast. The threaded messaging and tracking of the communication is superb. The workflow for everyday projects and collaboration can’t be beat. Integrations with Google Drive, etc work excellently to provide more cloud services and team collaboration & sharing. Slack also has multiple other integrations ranging from timers to project management to gifs.
Benefits have been: super fast communication (web & mobile), collaboration on projects, multiple channels for various project/needs.
I agree with previous replies about the benefit of real-time communication. Specifically for me, I manage a small team in a larger office that uses Basecamp, so for us, Slack helps us do two things really well:
1) Communicate team-specific messages or ask questions about Basecamp jobs without further cluttering inboxes
2) Build team morale – two of our members don’t sit with us, so we use Slack to keep connected and keep each other’s spirits upd uring the day.
It’s streamlined communication for my agency. We have a channel for each client as well as potential clients so we can segment our information, documents, etc. throughout the team and don’t have to worry about things getting lost in the shuffle. If we were having email chains in the way that we use Slack, it would be a nightmare.
