Slack allows us to save tremendous amount of time by having the ability to create groupings of people relevant to a conversation, like the entire engineering team, a subset of engineering team, the marketing team, etc. Also, by pumping certain actions into specific channels, we get automatic notifications as to when certain events happen, like the production environment getting updated, certain background jobs finishing, etc. All with a history, and within the same dashboard.

Slack is our global office. It is just an extraordinary tool that allows us to seamlessly work across countries. It guarantees us business continuity, and brings the company culture to the next level. It is a great way to get work done.

Slack - Best Internal Communication Tools for Startups

Slack is an internal communication tool that helps companies stay transparent by funneling otherwise isolated conversations into one, easily navigated location. Slack creates channels for designated conversations, allowing members to stay in the loop and read archived discussions on the topic at hand. Slack stands out for its usability and stellar integrations, which make pulling files from other apps a snap. Slack also adds an element of fun to the package, giving users the ability to add custom emojis to the conversation to spice up the workday. Slack is one of the more expensive internal communications tools on the market, but its ease of use and integrations make it the most popular, as well.

Which startups use Slack?

Slack’s overwhelming popularity extends to companies of all sizes and stages--it’s used just as frequently by Seed-stage startups as by their enterprise equivalents.

How much does Slack cost?

Free to use for an infinite number of users! Upgrades add additional features, controls and integrations, starting at $6.67/user/month for the Standard package, and $12.50/user/month for the Plus package. By the end of 2015, Slack plans to roll out an Enterprise package that will ring in at $40/user/month.
