Slack claims it is better than MS Teams

On the flip side, Microsoft Teams’ main competitor, Slack announced in October 2019 that it has 12 million active users.

In an attempt to alleviate the monopoly of Microsoft teams in the collaborative software market, Slack revealed that it is far more engaging compared to MS Teams:

  • Slack has over 5 billion actions during a normal work week
  • Slack’s paid customers spend more than 9 hours daily connected to their service
    • This includes spending about 90 minutes daily actively using Slack.
  • 87% of sU.S.-based users aid that Slack improved collaboration and communication inside their organization.

This news comes in light of the COVID19 phenomena where companies ask more and more of their employees to work from home whenever possible. That being said, having a good collaborative tool that will supplement the lack of human interaction is more crucial than ever.

This eventually leads to an increase in popularity for communication tools like MS Teams, Zoom, Hangouts, Slack, and others.
