Slack is a real-time communication platform designed for teams. The cloud-based solution brings group communication together into a centralized environment and replaces long email threads and status update meetings. Conversations are automatically indexed and archived, which enables users to pull up past files—including PDFs and Google documents—regardless of how long ago those files were shared and discussed. Slack searches within files, and it also allows users to share documents with virtually anyone.
In addition to its powerful messaging and document sharing capabilities, Slack also serves as a hub for integrated business apps. Organizations are able to integrate many of the tools they use every day with their Slack accounts. Pulling this data into a single platform saves time and increases efficiency for busy teams.
Email, voicemail, instant messages, text messages, and phone calls are just a few of the ways that busy teams communicate, but manually checking and responding to the messages coming from so many platforms consumes far too many resources for today’s busy teams. Slack is a cloud-based solution that replaces traditional forms of messaging, and brings all group communication together in one place.
Designed for businesses of all sizes, Slack is frequently used by leading technology companies such as BuzzFeed, Salesforce, Spotify, and eBay. Top features include real-time messaging, drag-and-drop file sharing, automatic indexing, and integration with hundreds of popular business apps. Slack offers its own native apps for iOS and Android, which means users are able to stay updated whether they’re working inside or outside the office.
