How to connect Slack and Microsoft Teams channels

Use Slack and Microsoft Teams in your workspace? Still suffering from silos? You’re not alone.

As collaboration and chat tools continue to enable the modern office, enterprises are usually left with two choices:

  1.       Force everyone onto the same platform, resulting in productivity loss and unhappy employees
  2.       Risk losing information and operate a disconnected workforce as users cling to their favorite chat tool.

What if there was a third option? Enter Mio.
