For making inboxes obsolete
Last year, Slack moved closer to its dream of killing office email with the launch of Enterprise Grid, a version of its workplace-messaging platform that offers separate spaces for different teams, along with cross-company channels and a unified directory. Another new product, Shared Channels, connects teams from different organizations to collaborate. With more than 9 million weekly active users (2 million paid), Slack’s annual recurring revenue has reached $200 million. “Whole companies want to use Slack at a scale we never anticipated,” says Noah Weiss, head of search, learning, and intelligence.
