Slack: A New Solution in Business Communication

By supertech01 | Published December 18, 2014

Business communication and collaboration solutions have come a long way since the web and email became a routine part of corporate communications. With web meeting solutions (i.e. WebEx, GoToMeeting), messaging solutions (Lync, Skype, Google Messenger) and data sharing (SharePoint, Dropbox) dominating the corporate scene, Slack has become a new player in the market.

Search and Device Sync

Slack’s messaging and collaboration applications reside across most device platforms, so whether you’re in the office or on the go, messages from colleagues are easily accessed. The conversations and shared workspaces are also fully searchable, making it easy to find any subject matter in the organization.

Integration with Other Services Makes the Difference

To get data flowing, Slack was wise to focus on integrating many of the key corporate repositories of content like Twitter, ZenDesk, Dropbox, Github, Google Drive and others. With this, things like documents, presentations, and spreadsheets can be easily absorbed into the system for collaboration and share review.

API at the Core

At its core, Slack built a highly flexible API (application programming interface) to get data both in and out of the platform. That way, searching Slack from other tools and retrieving collaborative conversation in something like is a readily-approachable endeavor.
