We tried a different team communication software (
), but it didn't work as consistently well as Slack. We really like Slack for our internal team communication, and even for communication with outside organizations we work with. It's pretty easy to set up a Slack channel and invite others to it for easy back and forth. Huddles, even with video and sharing work pretty well now, though there are still a few hiccups every now and again.

If you don't have a huge budget and want something that works with minor quirks here and there then Zoho Mail is definitely something you should look into. For half the price of Google G Suite or Office account you get 5GB of storage per user and can send up to 25MB emails without restrictions. Great for small businesses in my opinion. I have had some issues with their spam filter, but we use
and just shut off the one that comes with Zoho Mail. Zoho's spam filter isn't horrible but you should definitely use something in addition or instead of what comes with Zoho.
Read full review Pros Real-time discussions between team members like a chat application Direct integrations with calendar and video call applications Intuitive shorthand for emoji inputs and Markdown styling Smart copy-paste UX for media files and external links that detects the type of assets being pasted Read full review Its easy to use in Mobile A fresher can easily use Super admin pannel is also easy to use Read full review Cons I'd like to see further ways to organize my chats. Right now, it's very linear. Maybe folders inside folders. Being able to transfer any videos recorded in Slack between slack conversations without downloading and uploading. Aka, a Slack link for the video (like loom). A cheat sheet of available commands (like starting a zoom chat) --I'd love to know what all my company has enabled.

It is a bit uncomfortable, I would prefer that it be activated automatically The filter to search for information is not very accurate and unfriendly The way to manage the storage capacity and to buy more space for the mail is not very friendly Read full review Likelihood to Renew
As useful as Slack has become within our company, I feel fairly confident we will continue to use Slack as a communication tool. They continue to improve their software and add value to its use within our office. Customer service delivers, which is an absolute must. Looking forward to how they improve.

As long as you use the basic chat features and nothing more, it really is super easy to understand and use. Once you want to take advantage of some of the more advanced features and capabilities, that's when things get complicated. Anyone who has use SMS or a chat program before will be able to figure out the basics though, so rolling this out should be relatively straightforward and not required exhaustive training. Teaching chat etiquette is something else though.

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.

I have spoken with Zoho several times and their support is always friendly and helpful. I have always been asked for security pins and codes when seeking assistance which helps me to feel my accounts are secure and I have never had to wait on hold to speak with someone for more than 5 minutes. They always seem to have someone available to help. If you call asking for instructions on how to do something they gladly walk you through the process and if you just need something done and don't have time to do it yourself they will happily customize whatever you need without you having to spend all day with it.

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.

It depends on the company size, if the company is small its better to use other messengers which are more lean and simple, slack in my opinion is very useful once you can use all of it's benefits as an integration with the other services which are very strong, we have integration with Google, Automation, our internal services as Okta

• We were using
for little time since it does not have the adequate functionalities to address the business problems we have or improve the quality of collaborative work between departments. • The main reason we decided to implement Zoho Mail. It is because this service is much more complete than any of the ones currently on the market. It is perfect for teamwork and increases the fluidity of collaborative work between departments.

Integrations with Google Drive and Gmail are another great time saver. Sharing files allows us to collaborate faster and better.
