My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Slack

I believe Slack is a highly effective tool if you want to reduce the clutter of email, and ramp up collaboration on projects, or resolving issues in a team context. Setup dedicated channels and you can subscribe to specific projects you are working on with others, or implement that channel that allows you to continually offer service training to your employees. Want to know when you receive negative feedback on your service or product? Setup integrations with the tools you are already using, have it fire into a channel for your team to see, and even send a notification to the app on a smartphone so you have realtime information when your customers are not happy.

  • Integrations are a plus. We use Zapier on campus to interface with other SaaS systems, CRMs and ERPs. The integration capabilities make it an effective collaboration and communication tool.
  • Slack provides multiple modes of communication. You can setup channels for specific topics, send direct messages to an individual team member, or setup groups.
  • The desktop app is nice in that it provides effective notifications, and makes it easy to share documents with other team members.
  • Multiple teams allow you to segment your communication and collaboration initiatives.

Cons

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

  • The sorting of channels is not my favorite. There are ways but definitely needs improvement.
  • Search is clunky. Not bad, but I find the UI for that piece to be a bit overwhelming.
  • Apps is a section I haven't delved into. Sounds like there are cool things to do or integrate, but its not advertised well.

Slack's usability is simple and intuitive for the most part. Conversations are easy to start or join, chatting is simple but featured, and sharing files can be done fairly easy as well. Slack also integrates fairly easily with common industry tools like JIRA. The mobile app does not allow users to easily switch between organizations though.

Alternatives Considered

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Slack is the jewel in the crown, the functionalities it has, and its versatility is far superior to others, the ability to share code is the best it has, and its mobile application works too well, so slack will always be the best option on the market. I also think that the price quality is the best because it is not so expensive, I also think it is a tremendous investment because if we take into account all the time you save to invest in other things and improve your productivity.

  • Slack collapsed all communication in a single place, which allowed us to speed up our work and management of different projects.
