Slack announced that SiriusXM is rolling out Slack companywide. SiriusXM expects to use Slack as part of its audio production, event management and marketing to bring together teams and applications.
The acquisition earlier this year of Pandora Media, the most popular music-streaming app in the U.S., expanded the employee ranks at SiriusXM. Together, SiriusXM and Pandora now reach more than 100 million people with their audio products and services. The introduction of Slack as SiriusXM’s choice of technology and productivity tool is a significant part of the company’s ongoing efforts to integrate its geographically dispersed workforce.
“Collaboration is key to our success, which is why we decided to use Slack as part of our efforts to bring our employees together,” said Bill Pratt, SVP and CIO at SiriusXM. “We see Slack as an important day-to-day productivity tool for our organization.”
“Slack is helping companies around the world transform the way they work. We’re delighted that SiriusXM has chosen Slack to help break down silos, foster transparency and improve business operations,” said Bob Frati, SVP of Sales and Customer Success at Slack. “Throughout this period of change, and beyond, SiriusXM’s investment in an industry leading technology platform will be critical to its continued success. Thank you, SiriusXM, for inviting us on this incredible journey with you.”
