Magic Integration Tools to Support Business

Outsourcing help to agencies isn’t the only way to make sure a job gets done economically. Virtual assistants are another good option. Magic Assistants can be found with a wide range of skills and qualifications⁠ — and many of them work with a variety of integration tools to perform tasks more efficiently.

Get things done how you want them to be using the tools you already have. Here are 15 Magic Integration tools you can use to readily add VAs to your daily operations:

1. Slack

Slack is a cloud-based team collaboration app that features:

  • Public and private group chats
  • Direct messaging
  • Audio and video calls
  • Contextual search
  • File sharing

You can also customize it for your productivity using a rich collection of settings, chatbots, and integration tools (e.g. Asana, Dropbox, Google Drive, MailChimp, and Zoom). With real-time and asynchronous messaging, it’s great for hybrid and all-remote work settings.

Delegating work through messaging tools is made easy with Magic. Simply mention @magic to chat with your Magic Assistant.

2. Telegram

Telegram is a free and secure messaging app that boasts a straightforward interface, reliable performance speed, and end-to-end encryption. It can be easily deployed on every platform across iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Linux, macOS, Windows, and popular web browsers.

There is a wide range of Telegram features you can take advantage of, such as:

  • Secret chats and self-destructing messages

Integrate Magic into this messaging app by sending a message to our Telegram bot and confirming your account by entering your phone number. Text the code sent to you to finish setting up. Chat with Magic Assistants instantly using your phone or desktop computer.
