Why is it useful?

Slack is used for collaboration among businesses. Slack is not used by all of our colleagues or contractors. If they don't have access to Slack at the time, contractors and coworkers can still receive essential information and tasks on their phones thanks to Slack's integration with SMS.

  • Labor companies — communicate with field contractors who may not have Slack or other communication tools.
