My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Stride

Stride works well for those looking for just a communication tool. However, there are a lot of similar programs out there that offer more interesting features without being overwhelming. The simplicity works for and against Stride. Smaller groups would find Stride useful, especially if they are not concerned with the public rooms

Cons

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.
No photo available
  • Private group chats. Rooms can be seen by others in the organization. Some matters do not need to be public.
  • User Experience/Interface. Not intuitive to use.
  • Simple. Missing a lot of features such as emoji, gifs, and connection to other applications that make other programs more fun and useful to use.

Alternatives Considered

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Stride falls short in almost every regard. While Stride is affordable, Slack and Ryver offer vital integrations that increase efficiency and are more enjoyable for employees to use. The features of Slack and Ryver that add personalization of chat (private vs. public) also add a layer of efficiency and flexibility that are hard to pass up for the simplicity and affordability of Stride.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration

  • Increase in communication across company.
  • Doesn't have integrations like other applications so it is less efficient.
  • No extra features to act as distractions.
