What is Slack?

Slack is a team communication tool, probably the most well-known one in the space.

Like Microsoft Teams, it is a great way to chat with teams members - even via video, screen-sharing and screen recordings for later. Slack have grown into a larger tool since they have been purchased by Salesforce and now offer a handful of tools to embed Salesforce into the workflow for those use the CRM tool for their work.

Slack offers threads for chat, a host of integrations and smaller, more recent features like Huddles for non-video calls post-meetings.

  • Threaded discussions within channels for organized follow-ups

Best Suited for?

Formerly Slack was poor with a-sync, remote teams - not like specialist tools like Twist, but now it has very much presented features like threads, a-sync recordings etc. to address that, Slack is a great all-round tool with more customisation than Microsoft Team offers.
