Slack, or ‘Searchable Log of All Conversation and Knowledge’, has spent the better part of a decade changing the way that organisations communicate internally.
Based on simple chat and file sharing, Slack found fast traction with its intuitive look and feel.
Once the preserve of trendy companies, chat based digital tools quickly moved into the mainstream, bridging the gap between instant messaging and email. Such was the success of Slack that Microsoft considered an acquisition of $8 billion in 2016, before deciding to create their own competitor, Teams.
Though no longer the new kid on the block, or the only business in their space, Slack continues to grow both in reputation and usage. In the early months of 2019, Slack was valued at $7.1 billion amid rumours of a public listing. They have also increased integration of Office 365 tools into their platform, and purchased Atlassian who developed Slack rivals, HipChat and Stride.
