What is Slack?

Slack is a messaging app that gives you one platform for all your communications, offering real-time messaging, file sharing, archiving, and search. It’s built for modern teams so you can have all your communication in one online location, instantly searchable, and immediately accessible from whatever connected device.

Slack works with more than 1,500 external apps and services, giving you one fully flexible and extendable platform. It has several internal and external sharing options so you can receive and share files with anyone. It offers advanced search, filters and sorting that make it easy to get the right files that you need. You can set filters by variables such as recent type, relevance or file type.

The solution comes with fully native apps for iOS and Android to give you full mobile functionality. It also has read state synchronization like for instance when you read something on your phone, your in sync laptop will know about it and automatically mark those messages as read.

Overview of Slack benefits

Modern teams require responsive and unified communication hub that not only collates all channels they are using, but also stores their conversations in robust databases to make them easily searchable and available at any moment. Whatever action you perform with it is completed since on an intuitive and easy-to-use dashboard. There is no need for complex installations, maintenance or training since the platform is fully cloud hosted.

Slack is built around a channel format that allows you to quickly go from asynchronous to synchronous communication, giving you real-time response. Its centralized and searchable archive of messages is made available not just to people on your team today, but also to those who’ll get on board later on. Other helpful features include open communication channels, private groups, internal and external sharing, flexible browsing, and many more.

Slack is one of the most extensively integrated platforms around, which is why it is the communication and collaboration platform of choice by teams from top global companies. The system will blend and work with almost every leading software out there that you use such as Dropbox, Zendesk, Google Drive, MailChimp,GitHub as well as all major social networks. Slack also has a strong SMB following and orientation because you can start off with a robust free plan with no restrictions on time and number of users.
