Allo
Allo is ideal for brainstorming, designing, and presenting information in a remote company. With its easy-to-use tools and modern, minimalistic, and non-intrusive interface these kinds of tasks can be done in Allo beautifully. However, it was difficult for us to have a detailed project schedule (with automatic reminders for tasks and subtasks). To sum up, Allo is a perfect digital paper canvas but currently, it lacks automation features.

Pigeon Messengr functions well as a general communication tool. In my experience, the only area it is not well suited for is transferring documents with specialized file formats. I also am not aware of what its auditability is like, but we are using it so it must be there.

  • Notifications - I can minimize the window while I'm working and new messages will pop up on my screen so I don't have to remember to check the channel.
  • Statuses - we always put up a status of what we're working on, I like how you can hover over user names and it will show you their statuses.
  • Overall look - I don't know if my company chose the color scheme but it's really sharp. Also love that I can use Dark Mode, easier on my eyes for sure!

Cons
Allo
  • more views for projects
  • more templates
  • task management options inside a canvas (deadlines, recurring etc)

Team Messengr
  • Sometimes a message will get broken up and I am unable to view it all at once.
  • It would be nice if it had a way to select a message as being unread. I like to leave messages unread as reminders but sometimes need to just read them first.
  • It won't allow me to upload a picture because it has to be of a very small size. Would be more personal if I could use a picture on my profile.

Occasionally, files can take forever to upload and download, and the calendar integrations also don't work sometimes.

Alternatives Considered
Allo
Miro is a direct competitor for Allo. It has more features and integrations but Allo appeals much more to us because of the easy-to-navigate and elegant interface, as well as speed. Infinity is an all-in-one project management app. It's ideal for detailed project management and keeping tracts of tasks (and other. items) but Allo is much better for designing and brainstorming.

Pigeon Messengr has everything in one, although there are some things that could be improved, what product doesn't? I prefer it over some of the other platforms because it is more organized for our business needs and communications, and it has several updates a month to make sure everything is working properly.

I have not noticed any issues for a company of about 400 employees. I imagine the channel functionality would enable fairly unlimited scaling.

Return on Investment
Allo
  • helps improve and maintain productivity
  • The windows app keeps the cpu very busy so can slow other application
  • team collaboration has been improved since using this program

  • Positive - less time wasted on emails
  • Positive - less expensive than having a chat tool and a video tool (and phones!)
  • Negative - sometimes tone is hard to convey in text, and this has led to a couple of misunderstandings
