Slack

Slack is well-suited for organizations that are looking to improve communication and transparency between departments. When users want to see what is going on in a department, they simply look through that department's channel history. Slack is also great for users that are frustrated with the amount of emails they receive. When we switched to Slack, the amount of emails I received reduced 75%.

Great tool for collaborating on a project or communicating about a specific issue through a designated channel

Usability

Slack9.5
Based on 7 answers
The system does seem to hang quite a bit, completely unrelated to my internet connection, which can get a little annoying when you are in the middle of a conversation and cannot respond and the conversation moves on without you or creates a lull in the discussion that gets everyone off topic.

Alternatives Considered

HipChat is the first chat tool that I learned and still use to this day. I am most comfortable with its interface and the team I use it with is trained to communicate there consistently. Slack was introduced to me later as we expanded into working with other teams within our organization. I have not found too many differences is the features, but I am still working to be as comfortable and knowledgable with the interface.

Return on Investment

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