    Hi Robin,

    Hiri is just for companies. It only works with Exchange and Office 365. The video is more of a walkthrough than a teaser. But you can see a teaser here :-)

      No support for Google Apps for Business?

      Slack is killing internal email. I can actually control notifications where as with email I have no control over what I get. Based on the video I fail to see why this would be better than Slack. A few people have pointed out the complexity. Perhaps make a shorter demo that focuses on the core.

        Hiri is not 'better' than Slack. Slack serves a different purpose. It's like saying Skype will kill email. Each tool has its place. We actually encourage users to use IM for certain types of communication.

        As for x killing email - business email is still growing rapidly. See

        Just a quick comment on Slack. It's somewhat difficult to get people /companies to use Slack unless they see its value right away. We've tried to use it in our company and it hasn't take off. Email will stick around for a while, and Slack serves a slightly different purpose.

          One thing to note is that adoption of Slack requires adoption of at least the whole team (if not the company, for even more benefit). However, it looks like you could sort of use this Hiri alone but will realize addition benefit as more adoption happens.
