The Role of Messaging Apps in Your Support Stack
The rise of messaging apps is fundamentally changing the way your support team communicates internally as well as externally with customers. Slack is the fastest growing SaaS application in history and is quickly becoming the communication and notification hub of your team. Our own survey of over 80 support teams revealed that 82% of teams used Slack. Perhaps more surprising was that the average number of Slack bots installed per team was over five, indicating how entrenched and utilized the app is internally. Much like your ticketing solution, Slack is another destination that is sitting open for your support team all day. But it's not without its challenges that affect the productivity of your team.
