Cloudswave Score for Slack
Rating based on 500 Critic Reviews
We love this method of communicating in the office. So easy to use. It has become a valuable tool in the way we coordinate projects with one another and with how information is shared.
Pros : Easy to use, easy to set up, based on old school IRC
Cons : I haven't ancountered any yet.

Slack Use Cases and Deployment ScopeOur entire company uses Slack - every single department, and especially the people and sales reps who work remote. It completely takes away the need for email, and as a growing startup our inboxes are already cluttered as can be, so this helps to take out some of the needless emails that can take up space. We use Slack for a variety of ways, from "general" channel, to joke channels, and department channels as well. We also use it for our morning conference calls, so people are able to speak and 'interrupt' with questions and comments in the Slack channel while not disrupting the conversation on the phone.
Pros : Ease of use. Literally everyone in the company knows how to use Slack.Customization. This might be a personal thing, but I love the customization! To add your own emojis, change the color of the sidebar, etc., it makes it personal since Slack is something I look at a lot throughout the day.Mobile access. The mobile app is great - and very useful for when I'm traveling.
Cons : I wish that there was more detailed profile options. Since we have no social intranet, we mainly use Slack for this, and it would be great to be able to have more of a 'profile' feel than what is currently there.

It's not one thing that makes Slack so great. It's all the things it does, in one place, in an interface that makes it fun and easy to stay in touch. It's a team chat app that'll help you do more, together.
