Ryver is an amazing product - the result of a 3 year, $9MM effort.  It is a very serious product for a huge new category I call Team Communication Software.   Compared to Slack, there are things about Ryver I believe are superior. Other than features...

The promise of Ryver is not “be less busy.” It’s “get more done.” It is not about less communication. It is about more communication - a lot more. In his book, "Team of Teams" retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal argues that organizational hierarchies must radically change to adapt to today's more complex environment. A sports team on the field is not a hierarchy. Every player has to be aware of everything happening. Every player has to adapt to the constant flow of change taking place on the field. A team has to TALK - and talk constantly. Email no longer facilitates team communication. Our inboxes are overwhelmed. The “signal” is lost in the “noise.”
