Zenchat as a Microsoft Teams alternative

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform. It is designed to facilitate effective team communication. But what if important information such as actionable tasks are often lost in the conversation? What if teams are discussing something that needs a more complicated project management tool to manage?

This is why we’ve created Zenchat, a team messaging and chat solution with integrated task management. As part of our Zenkit Suite, Zenchat is deeply integrated with other products in the Zenkit Suite, including the original Zenkit Base (project management tool), Zenkit To Do (task management tool), and many more to come. That means team members can easily chat about any projects and tasks, and managers can use sophisticated views for more complex project management.

With Zenkit, we’ve developed an easy to use, yet powerful Suite that evolves and adapts to your needs. If you are looking for a full-featured alternative to Microsoft Teams, give Zenchat a try!
