When should I use Claap vs. Slack?

  • Claap: it helps you align stakeholders, providing more context & enabling people to make better, faster decisions.

  • Slack: helps you answer to short messages very quickly

  • Claap + Slack:

    • Claap > Slack: Start the discussion in Claap with the right context, continue discussion in Slack

    • Slack > Claap: a thread is becoming too long and requires to jump on a call? No need. Start recording a claap explaining the context and gather rich in-context feedback.

Remove Claap from Slack
