Facebook makes Workplace, its slack competitor, available for use to any business

workplace

Facebook announced on Monday that they are making Workplace, their ambitious project aimed at giving competition to Slack, available to use for businesses. Any business will now be able to sign up and gain access to all its features.

Workplace, previously known as Facebook for Work, is a version of Facebook which helps organizations communicate and work more effectively. It is expected to give direct competition to services like Slack and HipChat.

How does it work?

Workplace is almost identical to regular Facebook, with the obvious difference of allowing communication with only other people at your company. Workplace, both in website and app version, is completely ad and distraction free, providing users with an ability to concentrate just on their work. Users will be able to see news stories from people they follow, engage in live chats, place group calls all around the world and conduct polls about their organization. All of this in the familiar user interface and environment of Facebook.

Instead of befriending people on Workplace, you follow them and can keep track of their posts and contact them through all conventional method available on Facebook like comments, chats, and voice/video calls. Live broadcasting and audio/video calls will be available on the platform on the coming weeks.

New features exclusive to Workplace

Workplace is not just a stripped-down version of Facebook, it is also introducing some exclusive features aimed at attracting organizations to this new platform. Some of those features are:

  • Businesses will be able to create multi-company groups. This will allow employees from different organizations to collaborate with each other on shared projects.
  • They have also built unique, Workplace-only features that companies can benefit from such as a dashboard with analytics and integrations with single sign-on, in addition to identity providers that allow companies to more easily integrate Workplace with their existing IT systems.

Pricing

Workplace is based on a monthly renewable subscription model. The pricing is dependent on monthly active users in an organization. Greater the number of employees that an organization has, the less it has to play for individual subscriptions. A breakdown of their pricing scheme is:

  • $3 per first 1,000 monthly active users
  • $2 per 1,001-10,000 monthly active users
  • $1 per 10,000+ monthly active users

Nonprofit organizations and educational institutes will be able to user Workplace without any charge.

Given the huge presence of Facebook in personal lives of employees, there is a big possibility that Facebook will be able to attract a lot of companies away from other competitors like Slack to their new platform. However, its success relies on the introduction of features geared towards boosting productivity in group projects; an aspect in which Slack and some other rivals excel.
