Whether you’re operating in a physical space, fully online or somewhere in between, the pandemic likely forced you to change how you run your business—from how you interact with customers to how your employees collaborate.

Many businesses looked to new technologies to weather the change. According to a recent Salesforce report, 71% of growing small businesses say they survived the pandemic because of digital tools.

While new software can help move your business forward, ensuring employees are actively using them is another story. Streamlining your tools in one place can help drive engagement, allowing your team to access its everyday tools where it’s already working throughout the day.

Our team partners with innovators across the industry to build integrations that bring your people and software together in Slack. Starting today, we’ve extended those partnerships to make the tools themselves more affordable too.

Access limited-time offers from 11 of our partners, including Asana, Notion, Zapier, Brex, AWS, Canva and more.

Read on to learn about our partners, their limited-time offers and how integrating them with Slack will help your team get a little more done each day.

Productivity essentials for a work-from-anywhere world

Too often, we’re forced to spend time figuring out how to do work instead of just getting it done.

These tools also integrate seamlessly in Slack, helping reduce context switching and streamline your process.

Spark discussion from anywhere, anytime with Loom videos

The Loom app

As organizations explore more flexibility to support a work-from-anywhere world, they’re also facing an unintended side effect: Workers feel like they always have to be “on.” To combat this, teams are embracing asynchronous work—allowing people to work when and where they’ll be most productive without the expectation of an immediate response.

Loom is the video communication platform designed for asynchronous work. Use it to record quick videos of your screen and camera and instantly share them in your other tools, Slack included! Instead of relying on scheduled meetings or long emails to stay aligned, Loom videos help you narrate ideas with more context and clarity in a fraction of the time.
