Make better use of managers’ time, integrate remote workers, and replace low-content meetings.
Communication consumes a huge fraction of time for managers and knowledge workers, and the workplace chat revolution has done nothing to reduce communication load.
Ironically, for some, email has now become the place for well-thought-out communications while workplace [chat] software has been inundated by thoughtless meme and emoji sharing.
Worse, chat communication on Slack or Microsoft Teams is disruptive, chaotic, and ephemeral.
The [chat] software goes from helping you work to making it impossible to get work done.
Zulip’s unique topic-based threading combines the best of email and chat to finally make efficient communication possible.
Akamai’s Zulip Enterprise deployment connects over 2000 users around the planet. The threading model of conversations provides a large number of participants the ability to engage in real, ongoing, and substantive discussions, without the overwhelming experience of many other chat systems. This coordination across far-flung teams has had a significant, positive impact on the happiness and productivity of our personnel, regardless of location or seniority.
In fact now it seems strange to me to just fire off messages in Slack with no subject – that's chaos, madness. The genius of subject lines is that you can quickly and easily catch up on the messages you missed in your off-hours... This feature alone saves me hours a week.

Zulip is the only nice project chat I ever used. Discord, slack, etc wasted my productivity for years, zulip actually increases it.
We’ve been working remotely since 2016 and have learned a lot since we started. You can read about why @zulip is the most important communication and knowledge management tool in our company: https://t.co/by7QPpVlU7#remote #Monadical #remotework #communication #knowledgebase— Monadical (@MonadicalSAS) August 25, 2020
Zulip’s unique threading saves me well over an hour a day in working with our distributed team of engineers and PMs across 7+ time zones. We tried Slack, Mattermost, and other team chat products that claim to support threading, and nothing handles synchronous and asynchronous communication so intuitively.
It’s so refreshing to see and use @zulip Another level of product design. Which really delights. A singular experience, unfortunately, in years.— metamn (@metamn) April 23, 2021
Congrats and keep up the good work!
#Zulip @zulip is truly a bastion of hope and joy in the chat-software space. #FOSS, better than #Slack in multiple ways, and just all around a joy to use. Their threading model is awesome. 4.0 was just released: https://t.co/hm23FBh3jL— Stephen Gutekanst (@slimsag) May 14, 2021
Zulip is everything Slack is, but it's smarter and more powerful.
