If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Slack, what would you say?

How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?

My company has been acquired so we are going to align our systems with our parent company. At this point, I am not sure if we will continue with Slack or instead move to another solution. I have suggested that we continue using the same tools, but at this point, I am not sure. In my opinion, this is a good product and I recommend it. Slack is much better than Microsoft Teams. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

From my perspective, this is a good product and I definitely recommend it. My advice for anybody who is implementing this type of product is to first consider what it is that they want to achieve, and then make the decision about which product to implement based on that. If you're trying to pick between platforms, like Teams versus Slack, I would recommend Slack for a variety of reasons. Even if you are using Teams already, I would suggest using Slack in addition because you can't go wrong. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is considering Slack is that it is a great tool. For us, it's difficult to talk with other departments, so this was the ideal solution. Overall, we really liked it, although it would have been nice to have videoconferencing support. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is researching Slack is that it is easy to set up and quite helpful for daily common things. We use only the free license but it is enough for us. If we continue to use Slack after the current crisis ends then we may buy more features and add-ons. For now, however, we have what we need. Overall, we are satisfied with Slack. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The mobile app needs improvement. It consistently misses notifications.
