Businesses are relying on Slack now more than ever.

The well-known platform offers an easy way for teams to communicate and share files from anywhere, it automatically indexes and archives all of your content, and even reduces internal emails. (Thank you, Slack!)

Over the past few years, this startup has revolutionized the way teams communicate on a daily basis. But perhaps the most buzzworthy topic regarding Slack is their remarkable growth rate.

Earlier this month, TechCrunch referred to their rapid growth as “insane, with daily user count up 3.5X in a year”. They even provided a timeline of Slack’s impressive daily active user (DAU) and paid seats growth. (click here if you want to check it out!)

So, it wouldn’t be unrealistic of me to assume your teams already use Slack. Even if they don’t use it, you’ve probably heard of it or read about it because this powerful tool provides a great deal of value for millions of users everyday. It’s especially handy for SaaS Sales and Customer support teams…
