Slack is a messaging tool designed for teams. Its ease of use allows you to create groups and give access to different members (inside or outside of your organization) and thus all communicate, just as if they were in the same office.

But what makes Slack so special? Here we tell you:

  • INTEGRATIONS. By having integrations such as: Dropbox, Google Drive, Twitter, Github, Skype and many more; Slack will likely become your company’s communication repository and file HUB.
  • WORK GROUPS. Segment chats into groups and each team can have its own channel, store credentials or specific information of a work team on a private channel, in short, you decide who can see what information.
  • CENTRALIZATION OF COMMUNICATION. Forget about the endless groups of WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook, using Slack and the daily mailing list is greatly reduced, all without missing any message of the conversation on any channel you use.

3 – Trello
