Slacking Off at Work

AIM5 Applications, Integration and Mobile

Location: 102B, Wisconsin Center

MONDAY, 3:00 - 3:45 p.m.

SLACK. It's no longer a bad word at work. Slack is the communication platform that will change how your team works. In this session we'll explore how Vanderbilt University implemented Slack in their Web Communications office, integrated it with their help desk, project management system, code repositories, and how it completely changed the culture of the office. (Oh, and there may be some incoming Slack messages from some of our friends in Milwaukee ... and some at home!)
