Samepage vs. Slack at a glance

Chat messages are the center of the Slack universe. They help teams communicate faster and at a higher frequency. One comment after another moves work along in a linear fashion with files and images attached along the way. Most would agree that one of its greatest strengths is its comfortable and personality-rich design. Others love it for its integration potential.

Teams on Samepage have the option to orient their work around channeled chat streams as well, but they also have the option to step outside the linear boundaries of chat. Pages are the center of the universe on Samepage and they act as a canvas for teams to collaborate on projects, share tasks, develop rich content, and communicate in real time. This helps teams get all of their work done in one place and keep everything in context.

The advantages of using Samepage

Samepage costs less and does more. In fact, your team can get all of its communicating done in Samepage via direct messaging, team chat, and video calls - but it can also co-author documents, synchronize files, assign tasks, share calendars, draw diagrams, and much more. Samepage is a complete real-time collaboration tool, so your team can spend less time hopping between apps and more time getting work done.

Plus, Samepage is extremely easy to use. Its there as a simple mobile chat app when you need it, and its a powerful project management app for your desktop when your needs are a little more complex. You can also turn content from emails and 700+ popular apps into pages, chat message, and tasks in Samepage so you can keep your workflows consolidated in a single place.

Your All-In-One Collaboration Tool

Team communication via direct messaging, group chat, and video calling alongside project files, tasks, and real-time document editing. But the best part? It's just easy to use.

Kick back for a few minutes and watch our team of marketing superheroes take a project from beginning to end on Samepage.

After that, travel a bit further south to see a side-by-side feature comparison. While we admit it's slightly biased, it'll give you a good idea of just how capable Samepage is when it comes to meeting your team's productivity and collaboration needs.

Sometimes Chat Just Isn't Enough

Sure, a group chat is perfect for talking about the small stuff, but when you need something a little more powerful, you need a page.
