Communications channels are evolving, from SMS and chat to voice, video and email the enterprises collaborate internally and engage externally leveraging all the cloud can offer. In addition to the development taking place, partnerships and integrations are enabling a future forward approach to productivity and communication.

Windstream Enterprise announced its OfficeSuite UC and HD meeting applications can now integrate with Slack. Slack is growing in popularity as organizations structure workflow and teams differently, and the communications platform is providing a more collaborative and effective approach to team work.

While email is not going anywhere, it’s not always the best internal communications method. Whether it’s inbox restrictions or overloads, there are limitations on what this reliant channel can offer. Now, OfficeSuite UC customers can easily access the communication and collaboration capability of Slack.

“The benefits of collaboration within an organization are many and that’s why one of Windstream Enterprise’s top priorities is to meet the needs of our customers by aligning ourselves with best-in-class collaboration tools,” said Austin Herrington, vice president of product management at Windstream Enterprise. “With this integration, customers will be able to extend OfficeSuite UC’s already-robust capabilities to Slack using the app’s native slash commands, thus enabling them to maximize their return on investments in both services.”

Slack is gaining momentum as a preferred tool for team collaboration, and now Windstream is making a robust addition to its armory of business tools.
