In the beginning, Slack was just an internal chat box used by employees to carry on their daily tasks. However, in just a matter of time, the messaging tool became an overnight hit among businesses. Within just 24 hours of activity, the software managed to gather a total of 8,000 customers. For many companies, Slack has become indispensable as their employees use it to share files, communicate, and work remotely as a team. Three years from its launch, the company attracted 5 million users of which 1.5 million paid to unlock premium features. Even though it is probably the best workplace collaboration tool, Slack avoids stagnation and brings in more goodies for the professional environment.
Today, Slack launches Enterprise Grid. The company defines this new product as a Slack version specifically redesigned to fit big companies better. According to them, there is a big difference between how small and large enterprises use their tool for collaboration. The new version has been in the production stage for over a year now. This was enough time for the company to implement their most ambitious project.
Enterprise Grid intends to ensure quality collaborative measures for the professional environment. Besides the lift of the limit for the number of available workspaces, the business version comes with new and useful features. First of all, the company was focused on providing the best of digital safety in the enterprise software industry. This is why IT administrators will be able to manage new layers of security and identity control. The software can receive more support from services like OneLogin, Okta, MSFT Azure, LastPass, Auth0, Centrify, Bitium, Clearlogin, and Ping Identity/Federate. Moreover, customers will be able to enjoy tools for preventing data loss and integrate new HIPAA & FINRA.
The name of Grid fits the new concept perfectly. The idea behind this is to create a new level of productivity by allowing teams to interconnect with each other. Teams will still be able to work independently from the others, while still keeping an eye on others’ work. This strategy ensures that each workspace enjoys the perfect numbers of users and they do not get too crowded.
The company will not disclose the price for its new product. Those who are interested in this are welcome to contact the organization itself through their official website. This is how they will receive a customized offer to suit their needs best. Slack also intends to work with its customers on the integration part in their own professional environment.
