Streamline communication

Save time throughout your day by doing all your work in one productive place. Keep messages on track and avoid the back-and-forth between external emails and internal conversations.

Adapts to your work

You and your partners can both customise your shared channel to fit the way you work. Talk as a group in real time, integrate apps for even less context switching and use direct messages for one-to-one conversations.

Helps you work smarter

Unlike siloed inboxes, you can quickly find and reference the contents of a shared channel alongside all the conversations at your company. This means that you always have a reference of past decisions and their context.

Gives peace of mind

Admins can rest easy with full control and visibility over which channels are being shared with other organisations. Everyone collaborates in a space protected by the industry standards-exceeding security of Slack.
