Slack is integrating applications, instant messaging and services. It is changing the way we work. Launched in 2014, the idea behind this innovative platform is to help teams achieve greater results. This is through simplified collaboration and creative tools that drive results. The applications are programmed to act as helpful assistants known as bots.
As time goes by, the Slack bots are arriving in huge numbers. They’re becoming an integral part of workforces around the globe.
