Internally we use Slack.

We could not live without Slack and use it for Customer Service. Our customers are entrepreneurs who are raising money, so when our customers join our community, we invite them to our Slack channel. We’ve created channels for bugs, geographical areas, brags, funding ideas, and everything you can think of that is both advice and customer service-related. There are 200+ women on there as we speak. There is mentoring and coaching and people can DM us about issues. It’s a very tight and active community of entrepreneurs!

We integrated Slack with Intercom and Stripe to get all of the notifications there. We also have our own Slack bot :)

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.
