Slack

I don't know a better remote collaboration platform, and I've tried many. Slack works perfect for giving the feeling that you and your co-workers or teammates are in the same time and space, unlike some de facto office applications in my opinion. This for example is shown in how much better the response times are on Slack with our team than any other application. The main problem is that for some users, starting to use Slack seems to be too challenging and difficult

I think it is well-suited for populations who value social media and being connected in this manner at work. If the population does not value this type of open interaction, it will be underutilized. Many of our baby-boomer generation staff have a hard time seeing the relevancy of a site such as this.

Pros

Slack

  • The communication channels have an excellent notification system. Notifications in Slack are one of the things that make it a very beneficial software, because I can be attentive to any movement of the chat channels, also, I can know when I am being mentioned in any of the channels.
  • The transfer of images is completely effective, it does not diminish the quality of the images that are transferred through the chat channels.
  • The application for mobile devices is very complete, I have general access to all the chats that exist within my company, in addition, I also have the ability to reply to messages from this application.
  • The communication channels can be accessed by any employee of any sector, this facilitates the communication of the various sectors and achieves that all sectors can share information between them.

  • I think it helps people crowd source an organization for information and resources that may not be easily found.
  • The subjects feature is a great place to develop communities of practice where links, files and communication can be shared.
  • As long as the search engine is optimized / working effectively, it can be a powerful way to access sites and resources across the organization.

Cons

Slack

  • The main problem we have in Slack is that conversations sometimes get out of control and there is no way to regulate this, there is no configuration that controls the amount of messages or the general volume of messages that can be in a channel, which causes our employees to have long topics of conversation that disrupt productivity. I would like to be able to regulate this with some Slack configuration.
  • Slack's search system is one of the features that doesn't work successfully. This search system has a long delay when I insert a word in the search, it takes a long time to perform the search, in addition, it does not show all the results of the searched word, it only shows the most outstanding and most recent results.

  • The profile finder is glitchy and rarely comes up with solid results.
  • The site sometimes has glitches, such as subject pages not loading and complete content not appearing on the screen until you refresh or give it an abnormal amount of time to load.
  • The "USAID Search" option should appear first for the search results. It is not intuitive that it is the last search option to select. Often users don't even clearly recognize that they need to select types of search results.

Slack works incredibly well and allows our whole remote-first company to work together from all around the World. The flexibility, ease of use and scalability of the solution means that we can continue to grow and make use of the team with a minimum of effort. I can see no obvious reasons why we would migrate to a different tool other than perhaps cost, but whatever savings would disappear in migration/setup time and the initial productivity loss.

Everything just works. I think the navigation and usability is quite intuitive. I have never had to look up any information or google how to use a feature of Slack (both in the desktop form and on the mobile app). I've never heard any complaints from our other employees either. I have been asked to remind people how to set up reminders, ironically. Although that itself is really simple too (you type "/remind" and then the reminder details).

I've never had to contact support for Slack which is a great testament to its ease and use. Adding people outside of the organization takes a little getting used to, but ultimately allows for greater collaboration between FTE and contractors. There is no clear alternative to this software, so it's the best we can do for now.

It always helps if you communicate to everyone in the organization how important it is to drop whatever other chat tools they are using and jump quickly to Slack. They will all fall in love with it.

Return on Investment

Slack

  • Slack has helped us to embody one of our company's highest principles, "Care for each other like family, but act like a high-performing team." Because the majority of our employees are remote, Slack has been utterly vital in helping to foster camaraderie in our smaller teams.

  • I feel that it has connected colleagues who would have never met in our global organization.
  • I has created a division in the organization between the users and those who oppose its existence.
  • It has been a great place for communication-oriented departments to get their messages out, advertise events, etc.
