Which is the Greater Project Management Tool Between Workplace or Slack?

Share this:

 With the rise of startups, several project management tools come in which teams can collaborate in a virtual environment. There are several available all over the internet, both free and paid. But two competitors stand at the pinnacle: Slack and Workplace by Facebook. 

Which is the greater project management tool?

A few months ago, I initiated a transition from using Slack, the seemingly ubiquitous chat client, to using Workplace – the office communication platform made by Facebook. The workplace is now fully up and running at my company, and I wanted to make all internal communications go through Facebook Workplace. The workplace is undoubtedly cheaper than Slack and it allows everyone across my company’s network to communicate with each other without switching between instances.

As the project manager/CEO of my own Digital Marketing Company, optimizing efficiency is a key part of my job. As a result, I am very interested in apps for productivity and platforms for team communication. When I decided to pick the Workplace over Slack, I had a few important things in mind.

Slack is the current leader when it comes to team chat and collaboration. Its feature that allows you to integrate over 600 apps was a definite plus, and its ability to create chat rooms and instant messages made email outdated. Chatbots helped organize company data, including keeping notes and making reminders.

Workplace however has several benefits derived from the massive platform of the social network

of 1.7 billion active users. The app’s interface resembles the main Facebook site, so most employees will have little trouble getting started with this tool. Users can also post updates in Facebook’s newsfeed format. Although slack offers video chats, Workplace is the only one so far that allows users to live stream events.

When it comes to pricing, Slack has a freemium option, however, this option has several limitations, and the most annoying of them all is the email threshold. Slack will start hiding your messages once you reach the 10,000 messages, starting from the oldest until you register for a paid plan.

I have 3 companies in total, all using Slack. Each company has an average of 30 channels each and 50 personnel. It took only months before we consumed the 10,000 threshold limit. And that’s 30,000 messages since each company has its own slack.

On the other hand, the Workplace has unlimited messages in its free plan. Offering live video streaming for conference calls as well as voice and video calls via both PC and mobile.

Though slack also offers a mobile app, it lacks the call functionality that the workplace offers. The last straw is the price. Slack asks for a staggering eight dollars per active user per month, while Facebook Workplace only asks for three dollars for the next 1000 active users. Lowering its price per user the more people you have in the tool. Since I plan on scaling sometime soon, the Workplace is definitely the better option.
