Tools /

Slack is a online collaboration tool, to chat on-on-one or in different channels (for teams or topics). Share ideas, ask questions and spend less time on formal emails and collaborate faster.

Look and feel?

Good, nice clean design


Innovative, but there are others alike


Easy, create an account and go!

Slack is very good example of a tool that makes online communication and collaboration easy. It is easy to set up, and once you have invited team members and set up a few channels (for groups/teams or specific topics) you are ready to go. And it’s free to use with limitations, and worth to subscription for the extra features and add-ons.

The cool thing about slack is Slackbot, a chatbot that can help you find your way in Slack, or store information (like your company’s wifi password!). And apparently Slackbot comes with some cool chatbot friends, like Captain feedback (for feedback technology with Slack), or Workstreams (for cool Kanban features to let Slack help you manage projects better) and Leo the office vibe bot (for mood measurement through Slack). This makes Slack more than just a company chatbox. Slack also has the workflow builder which you can use to smoothen your onboarding process. Integrate with other webapps (like Twitter or Zendesk) for even more features.

when scaling you will need to find ways of working with easy and fast collaboration, especially with remote work becoming more and more common. Slack is a great tool to help your team(s) collaborate and keep in touch with each other (formal and informal).
