UberConference is good for calls, but it's not great for screen sharing. It can be fine if it's just a couple of people but if you're doing webinar stuff, we’ve found GoToMeeting to be better. Again, it’s hard in a highly-regulated industry. For internal IM’ing, we use Slack which we’ve been quite happy with.

Slack is really nice and the biggest thing for us is that it’s nice even when people are sitting in the same room. People might be working on two different things and it’s this great thing where we can post on the fly the great things people are saying or the small wins in press. We use it as a positive customer feedback and morale boosting tool.

We’ve tried different ones before like Skype, but Slack is so easy to use on every platform and across our international offices. We’ve had problems in the past with Slack on Mac or the smartphone, but now it’s so easy to use and works well with all our integrations to third party apps. We’ve connected Intercom to know when a sales opportunity is closed, the app store so that we know when someone is doing a review, and Google Analytics for tracking. It centralizes all the information anyone needs. It’s a mail killer for sure and very powerful.

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.

How 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.
