TeamsID design and development inspiration: Slack

by Morgan

Over the past few years as we have built TeamsID, there have been a few applications and services that have been inspirations for us. Some of these applications we also used extensively to help our own development team work together.One of these “two-fers” apps that was both a design that inspired us as well as a tool that we used day to day (and continue to use) is Slack. So I’m proud to say that if you use Slack, I think you’ll find some instant familiarity with TeamsID and the ways it can help you and your colleagues be more productive.
