Startup Monday: Slack

Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events!


When it comes to the workplace, collaborating in a team is the norm. Although extremely beneficial, it requires continuous back and forth dialogue which can sometimes get a little hectic and disorganized when having to communicate through multiple online platforms. We’re all about efficiency and productivity here at ABCey, so today we’re highlighting Slack, a messenger app that is sure to improve your team communication, making it more simple and more efficient.

Team Conversations are organized into Channels. You can create different channels for specific departments, groups or conversations. Public channels are open for all members of the team, allowing them to pop in at any time and join the conversation. Private channels are for confidential projects that can be viewed by invitation only.

Direct messages:

Need to communicate to someone directly? Use the direct message function to send private and secure messages.

File Sharing:

Working on an event proposal or drafting a contract? Documents, images, pdfs, spreadsheets can be uploaded into a particular channel and team members can view the document and make comments on it.

App Integration:

Need to access your twitter feed? You can streamline the tools and systems you already use by plugging app notifications into particular channels.

Search and Archive:

Everything in Slack is archived. You can search for specific conversations or even content within a particular document that was shared on a channel.

Device Syncing:

Sync the desktop app with your mobile phone and you’ll always be connected to the conversation.


Slack is the perfect platform to organize your team communication and increase daily productivity. Planning on using this amazing app for your team? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter!
