Collaboration & Consolidation
Useful tools, social networking and emails have exploded in recent years and it’s easy to find yourself weighed down by the everyday rigamarole of logging into multiple accounts in multiple locations. If you’re anything like most businesses these days, then you are probably juggling between multiple web applications, email accounts, social networks which can be a little painful.
Slack is probably one of the best collaboration tools on the market at the moment and it has been designed to basically declutter your life by integrating all of your accounts into a single easy to access hub. This is done by integration with multiple web applications i.e. Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Enquiries, News Articles and much more.
Not only is Slack a brilliant one-stop hub for consolidating all of those accounts you hate continually logging into so much. It’s also perfect for communicating with your team across multiple projects and departments, through Slacks easy use discussion tools and features.
They brighten up our day and help us communicate with each other on a somewhat personal level. We all love animations and emojis and especially in the workplace. Slack lets you use animations and emojis within your team channels and discussions, giving you the freedom to express yourself to your team.
After all, who wouldn’t want to see a cat animation on a Monday morning!
Useful slack bots
Another great feature to take advantage of is the ability to recognise and praise your team through the GrowBot integration which highlights any team member you send a /kudos command to. Great for motivating staff when they close deals or hit targets.
BirthdayBot integration is a simple yet useful bots which reminds everyone within your team of birthdays.
Another very useful integration that is completely free and great for adding reminders and tasks to your to-do list. As well as reminding yourself and your team of any upcoming deadlines or business events.
