  10. 10. Secret Sauce Quote • “Butterfield’s big a ha moment, he says, was realizing that messaging was the only business platform that could truly sit at the center of all other software systems. This is true, he believes, because it’s the only software that everyone in an organization needs to use. By contrast, platforms like Salesforce, Zendesk, and Github, for example, are highly useful (and valuable), but are only applicable within the sales, customer support, and development departments, respectively. Because everyone must communicate, a platform like Slack can be the hub that connects the entire constellation of business services.”
