Our working environments are becoming more and more collaborative. Yet, the tools we use to manage this collaboration (usually email) haven’t changed much in the past three decades. Your day-to-day involves a lot to keep track of: deadlines, project updates, file revisions, and all the while you need to have substantive conversations with your colleagues to make good decisions.

Slack and Trello work together to help your team collaborate more effectively. Slack transforms your team’s conversations by breaking them out of the silo of email into conversational channels. And Trello helps your team manage business processes with its flexible “card” interface.

By streamlining your team communication and business process management, you have more time to get ACTUAL WORK DONE.
