Ahead of IPO, the CEO of Slack mentioned his plans to replace company emails with it's popular digital team collobration platform which is going public with a a $16 billion valuation at a starting price of $26 per share.
Ahead of its IPO (which is technically a direct listing raising no new funds), the company boasts 10 million daily active users, who send a billion messages every week and 30% of accounts are paid accounts. It's another fact is 65 of the Fortune 100 use Slack.
Slack CEO, Stewart Butterfield compares email to Slack and finds email wanting. Email offers its users a “partial, fragmented view” of their collaborations with the rest of the company.
Slack solves this problem with a channel-oriented platform. Firstly, this creates more openness and transparency. It’s more accessible, and more team members see more of the same thing. Furthermore, it stores a public record of the company’s work.
In addition, when new members join the team, they have the written history of an entire operations and projects legacy to scroll through. That sounds wildly ambitious, but it’s not really when you look at the data and the culture surrounding the use of Slack.
