Though Slack brings chat, audio and video calling in one place, the related communications are not connected. Slack also does not support email communications.
Clariti is a productivity tool that not only brings all your emails, chats, calls, online meetings, shared files, social feeds, and tasks in a single app but also links related conversations in a TopicFolder.
In Slack channels all content appears as one long chat stream. You cannot do topic-based discussions without the information getting lost with the rest of the chatter.
Clariti automatically keeps all related communications including emails, chats, calendar events, to-dos, and calls connected as if it is one conversation. This makes it easy to keep all topic-based discussions organized.
In Slack, if you want to chat about an email, you have to copy/paste the contents of the email in the channel and then chat about it. A recipe for fragmented conversations.
In Clariti, when you receive an email, you can chat from the email. The recipient will see the chat next to the email and understand the ‘context’ of the chat. You do not have to copy/paste the email contents or need to forward it.
In Slack, in order to create a To-do, you have to integrate a separate app. The To-do is not linked to a specific chat and lacks context when triggered. You have to search your prior chats to know why you set up the To-do.
Clariti allows you to create To-dos from emails, chats or social media feeds so you always know the “context” behind the to-do. There is no need to search when a To-Do reminder is triggered as all the information is available linked to that To-do.
In Slack, you cannot easily share emails with your team. You have to copy/paste the contents of the email in the channel to do so.
Clariti’s “Instant Share” lets you share emails including the attachments with multiple participants with one step. There is no need to copy/paste or forward the email creating duplicate content.
Slack channels are rigid. Once a channel is formed and participants selected, all the participants can see all the chats. You cannot selectively chat with few participants without creating a separate channel.
In Clariti you can start a group chat and add members as needed. Existing members can be removed and new members added based on the conversation flow. So, users are alerted to join a chat only when necessary.
Slack is one of the most expensive SaaS software to own. Besides paying for per user subscription, you will also have to subscribe for all the integrations.
Clariti is free to own and you pay for only certain premium features. Since Clariti has all the features like email, chat, calls, social feeds, to-dos and shared documents in one place, you don’t have to spend on integrations.
In Slack, you can integrate social media feeds in Channels through integrations. But the feeds will be distracting as not all channel participants may need to be on top of them.
In Clariti, social feeds (Twitter) can be downloaded by each user as needed. The user can then share relevant feeds with their colleagues when necessary. This makes tracking social media productive, instead of being a distraction.
