It's pretty funny -- I work on a Slack integration, and we used to have a tool built in (called Operator!) that allowed customers to ping us directly in Slack when they needed help. After we started using Intercom, that became basically obsolete, but I really missed having that interaction actually in Slack, where I spend 95% of my day (instead of switching over to the web). Now that Intercom lets us have customer conversation right in Slack (and qualify and close them too) I pretty much have everything I need. Great integration, what a pleasant surprise!

Pros:

Works exactly as expected, reduces context switching

Cons:

None that I've seen yet, but it's only been a day!

Um... this looks heavily "inspired" by Chatlio, even down to the channel naming.
@jeberly First thought we had when seeing this. I'd use a word stronger than "inspired". There are so many interesting ways to do Slack integration, it feels lazy.
