Slack files for an IPO

Interesting. I do wonder what the next step for them is.

Pardon my ignorance.

How does Slack monetise itself?

There are a lot more options and storage limits on paid Slack. It cost a lot tho :cold_sweat:

They charge per user, which is pretty smart when you consider a lot of their users are companies like us! We had around 40 staff when I started here in 2016 and we now have over 700.

I believe the plan we are on is roughly £10 per active user per month.

Hopefully Tom’s on the right lines with his tweet :eyes:

As much as I’m not the biggest fan of Microsoft I would LOVE them to replace Teams with a good chat platform (Slack :yum:) :pray:

As long as they don’t restrict emojis it won’t make much difference

I wish my office would support Slack.

We’re big on Skype for Business - which is actually great for teleconferences (in my experience), but Slack for quick chats and virtual teams etc is just so handy!

Out of curiosity, what do Monzo use for emails and such? Surely slack is a pretty big overhead and not essential when there are many free or cheaper alternatives?

Reason for asking about email is because google hangouts Is decent and I presume no confidential user data is shared over slack so that can’t be a factor?

Infact I’m sure you guys could have your own in-house instant message and chat channel system created within a few days😂

Nearly every friend I have that works at larger tech company uses paid slack, and have become very reliant on it as the main messaging system.
