Slack is for real-time collaboration (aka chatting)

Slack is where we meet to discuss online, and is very similar to Skype and other instant messengers. Conversations are either direct (one-on-one) or organised in channels.

Slack can be accessed in a web browser but also has clients that can be downloaded for your desktop or mobile devices.

For a brief overview of how Slack works have a look at Slack’s own website.

Trello is for managing work

Trello is where we manage tasks in a workflow from need-to-be-done, through being-done, to done. It allows us to break up work in to smaller tasks and assign them to people that are included in the particular Trello board.

Trello can be accessed in a web browser but also has clients that can be downloaded for your desktop or mobile devices.

For a brief overview of how Trello works have a look at Trello’s own website.

Zoom is for online meetings

We use Zoom to meet online.

Zoom will most likely download a client automatically when you first join a meeting but it also has clients that can be downloaded for your desktop or mobile devices.

For a brief overview of how Zoom works have a look at Zoom’s video tuorials.

Mautic is our CRM

Mautic is our ‘Customer Relationship Management’ tool. It allows you to register, and DiEM25UK to manage the member base, through engagement metrics and email campaigns.

For an introduction to Mautic, have a look at Jonny’s tiny take.

The website is our public face
