RVW BOT helps businesses earn more employee reviews on sites like Glassdoor, Indeed, and Monster. Our app relies on Slack to operate. We decided to build RVW BOT this way because Slack is one of the most versatile ways for any company to organize communication among its employees. It also makes app integration easy. But what if you aren’t using Slack yet? We know that RVW BOT provides excellent human resources benefits to companies of all kinds. If you’re on the fence about whether to start using Slack, here are some reasons besides our app that may help you decide.
Using Slack for Consolidation and Simplification
One of the most important ways that Slack helps businesses is by facilitating many types of communication in a single location.
Email, text messages, chats around the water cooler, and instant messages each serve different purposes. The messages you send with them have different lengths and formats. You send them to different people.
Slack makes it possible to engage in all these different forms of messaging using a single application.
It allows you to send messages to the entire company, to specific teams, and to individuals, and any combination of individuals. It keeps those messages on file so you can find them later. The messages can be formal and work-related, or random stuff that helps you to blow off steam.
Instead of cluttering your email with internal communication, you can dedicate it to customer interactions. Slack saves you the trouble of needing to use a separate chat or messaging service to send short and fast messages between coworkers. That means keeping your phone number personal or at least client-facing as well. It’s a big win for privacy.
The Power of Integration and Collaboration
Once all the messages are in one place, it makes more and more sense to use them in productive ways. You can easily track multiple teams remotely. Beyond that, though, Slack makes it easier to get the actual work done, too.
We’ve already mentioned how it integrates applications. Not only does that work for apps like RVW BOT, but also with job-critical tools like Google Drive. That means you can share and work on collaborative documents using slack. There are many other possibilities, too.
Slack also provides voice and video chat options. If you have a lot of information to convey, you don’t often have the time to type it all out. Slack gives you the power to have a meeting without even getting out of your chair. That means using your time and office resources much more efficiently.
Of course, Slack also has a smartphone app, which means that employees who use it can receive urgent push notifications. If your business deals with a lot of employees on the go, and a lot of time-sensitive jobs, then it’s ideal.
Slack provides different pricing options for its full range of services. Depending on the type (for- or non-profit?) and size of your business, you may find it better to buy one rather than stick with the free version. Even the free version offers many of the features and benefits you need, though.
The key takeaway is that Slack makes it easy to keep all your company’s internal digital communication in one place. At the same time, it makes that communication more effective.
