Recent studies on team collaboration tools show that over 80% of companies use collaboration software in both the remote and in-office workplace.

With over 12 million active daily users and counting, Slack is among the most popular of these messaging apps. However, with the remote workforce rising steadily, most companies use more than one team communication and collaboration platform.

Instead of losing time constantly switching back and forth between platforms, use the below Slack integrations to streamline office communication and combine several business tools within the familiar Slack interface.
