Build stronger customer relationships

Stay connected to customers and keep communication flowing by working together in a Slack channel.

Improve customer retention

Meeting in person may not be possible at the moment, but your relationships don’t have to suffer. When you work together in a Slack channel, you can keep a pulse on customer priorities, keep your customers engaged, and address their needs right away.

Customer success teams use Slack Connect to: 

  • Create personal connections with customers and work together on shared goals
  • Triage issues or customer feedback by looping in the right people from both sides
  • Share important information on new product launches to drive adoption
  • 60%

    Decrease in turnaround time for customer responses

  • 50%

    Fewer customer meetings for an account manager

A channel that’s shared with a customer looks and feels like a channel you use with your internal team. People from up to 20 different companies can join, so everyone can stay aligned and drive results in one shared space.

 

When our customers are communicating to us through Slack, they see us as real, genuine people, and it has a totally different feel than email does. We want our customers to feel like we’re on their team.

 

Thousands of companies already use Slack Connect to work better together

3. Wait for your partner to accept

Pour yourself a cup of tea. Once your customer clicks the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack, where they can accept the invite and set up the channel on their end.
