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

Mattermost

Mattermost is a fantastic alternative to Slack and Microsoft Teams in terms of cost-effectiveness, simplicity of maintenance, and control over your business data. We chose Mattermost because our company's structure is cost-prohibitive for Slack and Microsoft Teams. Mattermost allows us the user control we need to attach external guest users to specific projects, as well as the security of knowing exactly where our business data is stored. A self-managed installation of Mattermost may not be as effective when applied to large, rapidly scaling teams as that may require more IT support than available - however they do provide a paid, managed option.

Mattermost

  • It's open-source! So our devs could adequate the tool to our necessities.
  • It works particularly well in every navigator.
  • It also works well in mobile phones, even when you choose not to install the mobile app (this is a BIG plus).

Cons

Alma Suite

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

  • Audio/Video capability, implementation could be better (such as what current competitors have)
  • Customization could be better, with more options, such as theme, layout, and notifications
  • Some users have trouble with distinguishing between Teams and Channels, and are unsure of hierarchy or how to organize.

Mattermost works perfectly within our company as a way to communicate seamlessly. I have had no issues with the product and continue to use it often while on and off site. The mobile app allows me to continue to communicate with my team even when I don't have my laptop with me.

It's very easy to use. Only at the point of configuring it will ask for some details. Apart from that, it is going to be a smooth process for anyone who wants to use this as their communication service. I am totally comfortable with using it in our organization

We have not had to contact support for Mattermost ever. All that we have needed has been available in the documentation or website. One of our DevOps team members set it up in a couple of hours. The whole team was using Mattermost that same day. No support needed.

Alternatives Considered

Alma Suite

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

  • Mattermost is very similar to Slack and has the advantage (in our case) of being entirely on-premises, and entirely free. The feature set is similar, and it has filled the original need that Slack was suggested as a solution for very well.
  • Teams is potentially a better choice for groups whose Microsoft licensing already includes it, or who want the range of direct integration with other Microsoft products.

Return on Investment

Alma Suite

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

  • It has reduced ticket quantity by a vast percentage, which has reduced costs due to less call being placed to the help desk
  • It has reduced email flow as well, which requires less management by Mail Administrators
  • It has made software developers within the organization very happy, as most of them are now ambassadors for Mattermost
