This eliminates the need to use a separate chat tool apart from slack. Slaask was developed in San Francisco, C.A. and was launched in March 2015. It uses a customizable “window type” widget to give your customers a good live chat experience without dividing the browser screen horizontally or vertically.

With Slaask all your team and customer communications can be brought at a single place. It allows you to have more conversations, better reactivity and lesser tabs.
