3 Reasons Why Your Small Business Needs Team Chat

Team chats are a part of work cultureOver the past few years, team chat applications have infiltrated into every single aspect of our work lives. Many of us instant message our coworkers, assign new tasks, get updates, share files or screenshots and even give reminders – across a variety of different apps and windows. Evidently, there's a drastic rise of team chat applications especially ones that offer an alternative collaboration environment, (hint: Slack and Slack Alternatives) outside of the traditional IM chat windows or inboxes.

There are a hundred different ways to talk to your team — from email and traditional phone calls to video conferencing and DMs on social, even SMS can work sometimes. So why have team chats gained so much popularity? What has made them the de facto medium for day-to-day conversations in different kinds of teams? As a small business owner, if you are not yet convinced about team chat and its capabilities, these 3 reasons will help explain what makes it one of the most relevant tools in the collaboration toolkit today:

Because it’s the most efficient way to improve communication in your small business

Team chat helps improve business communicationsEmail is time consuming. People don’t realize how much time they spend over sending emails back and forth throughout the day. According to productivity experts, email encompasses ‘work about work’ rather than work itself. For knowledge workers, instant messaging helps in uninterrupted focus while getting important work done. It offers a single platform where you can chat with coworkers in real time as well as asynchronously. If used wisely, team chat creates a productive workspace, facilitates teamwork and helps cultivate a modern corporate culture.

You can use chat platforms for real-time collaboration, sharing important files/screenshots as well as managing projects from a single chat window. With the ability to have group chats, one-on-one chats, or escalate to audio calling and so forth, team messaging drives in best value for small businesses.
