For more than 12 million people, Slack has become the tool they open first thing in the morning to get the workday started. And it’s become the leader of the team collaboration industry, simplifying people’s work and boosting their productivity.
But not everyone is completely elated with Slack. Some prefer not to pay a premium for unlimited search functionality (the free version caps it at the most recent 10,000 messages). Others prefer a self-hosted solution, which Slack doesn’t offer, to gain more control over their team’s communication.
Remote teams are becoming more mainstream, and because of this more people are looking for affordable team chat tools that meet their needs.
