Communicators using Bananatag can now also reach employees using Slack.

To support the expanding needs of professional employee communicators, Bananatag now offers an integration with Slack (in beta).

Our initial Slack integration beta allows you to:

  • Send employee communications to Slack (through Bananatag)
  • Draft and schedule multiple communications for Slack
  • Reach employees on any Slack channel

By allowing you to manage, schedule and send communications across email and chat, Bananatag is moving towards a multichannel experience on our platform, app.bananatag.com. The first third-party employee communications platforms we will be supporting are employee chat platforms like Slack and Microsoft Teams.
