  • The brainchild of Stewart Butterfield, an ex-founder of Flickr, Slack is all about speed, collaboration and integration - users create a team, start a discussion or search an old one, share documents and generally centralise their communications from a private hub screen. Various channels are kept separate, so if you stray off-topic it\'s sensible to jump channels.<br /> <br /> Unlike other such platforms, Slack isn\'t really about workflow, and nor does it include video calling and suchlike, but it knows this and integrates well with other platforms and apps, including <a href="">Google Drive</a> and Google+ Hangouts, Dropbox, Twitter, IFTTT, <a href="">MailChimp</a> and <a href="">many others</a>, though most tellingly, also rival platforms with a different focus, such as Trello, Zendesk and Asana.<br /> <br /> Slack is available in various flavours, but Slack Lite is completely free. There\'s also an app for the <a href="">Apple Watch</a> that lets you know when you\'re messaged, mentioned or otherwise needed by Slack.<br /> <br /> <strong>Read also: <a href="">Why the evolution of enterprise messaging is a big problem for Microsoft</a></strong><br /> <br />
