Collaboration tools are a necessity for any internal communications professional or business that wants an effortless hub of information. But with so many options out there to choose from, how do you know which tool is right for you?

Internal communicators have debated between Microsoft Teams versus Slack for some time. Both collaboration apps offer various advantages that can benefit your team.

At a glance, Microsoft Teams offers easy collaboration, compatibility with Office 365, security features built-in, various helpful bots, and flexibility. These mentioned features are obviously positive points that any business wants for their collaboration tool. But what about Slack?

Slack essentially offers the same benefits including offering email, instant messaging, and text messaging in one app, sharing videos, documents, and files, and keeping files secure and private.

On this curious topic, ALI Conferences asked our Internal Communications Best Practices group which app worked best for internal communicators. The results are as follows:

  • 79% of respondents said Microsoft Teams was the best app for internal communications.
  • 21% of respondents said Slack was the best app for internal communications.

Both Microsoft Teams and Slack offer a comprehensive list of features that will help your team collaborate and communicate.

Features like private and public messaging, searchable message history, video conference calls, screen sharing, file sharing, and more, help companies work closely together, even if they are not physically in the same office.
