    Does anyone feel there's a lot of switching cost to test out group chat apps, especially at work?

    In my experience, it's challenging to get enough people onboard to see if it would be a viable alternative for the whole group. It's also hard to override old habits / build new habits of where you're talking to people.

    This looks great for a small team that's willing to test out and abandon if necessary. That's a specific kind of group, though.

    Why are there two wordmarks?

    What differentiates this from Slack?

    How is it "chat for work"? Does it need to be tied in to some central enterprise server?

      @even, here is a quote from one of the founders of Pie to your first question.

      Good question :) As a tech startup ourself we think Slack is great, but it’s a product that's obviously tailored to tech-savvy people. Pie is a lot easier to use, has less software engineer focused bells & whistles - and has a simple design with a more mainstream appeal similar to the best consumer messaging apps out there.

      So basically we don’t really compete with Slack as we’re after a not-so-tech-savvy audience :)

      It's not tied to an enterprise server. Like Slack, you can join by invitation or by being on the same @domain.com. You can create groups, or conversations with your coworkers. The visuals are quite nice, and its free. Go check it out.
