Stride, from Atlassian (discontinued)

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

Front

No matter if you are the sender or recipient, Front will make it easier for you because [from] the beginning it shows you different ways to organize your daily emails. When something new is coming, you will still have the power to control what is going to happen with that email, whether you assign it to yourself, or send it to a colleague, but never missing an interaction.

Pros

Stride, from Atlassian (discontinued)

  • Stride is great as a chat tool with your team members online.
  • Stride allows us to share documents and files with one another.

Front

  • I call them "sticky notes" but Front calls them Comments. It's a way to collaboratively make comments on messages sent to joint inboxes for folks to coordinate a response before it goes back to the sender.
  • When exchanging with someone using the Comments feature, someone can create a draft reply and then share it before it goes out. It also includes the typing indicator letting you know they are not just replying, but specifically working on a draft reply. These things are really great for individuals, or teams, that don't sit next to each other.
  • Tagging. It's a fairly simple concept, but very useful for classifying notes and being able to manage, what could be, a messy inbox. Additionally, the ability to have your own personal tags really allows the user to manage their own messages in a way that works best for them.

Cons

Stride, from Atlassian (discontinued)

  • Dark theme would be nice
  • Better integrations to 1 on 1 chats, some software only works in group/room chat
  • Platform is going away in a few months, so letting it run longer would be nice.

Front

  • Commenting doesn't translate across all threads, meaning you end up with two threads in your inbox that contain the same information, but only one has commented - very confusing.
  • When copying text from other sources and pasting into email draft, it looks uniform in the draft, but when received, the formatting is different.
  • Emails sent sent, archived, and deleted natively in Gmail do not always sync with Front inbox.

It's very easy to understand and use by new customer support agents as well. Be it a technology, product, or marketing person, we have trained most of the company folks to read and respond to customer conversations in their free time with the help of the Front app. It is also easy to set up for an admin and manage his/her team with communication rules.

The support is good, and it's definitely prompt, but still lags when it comes to technical requirements, as I guess they are slow in developing newer features fast. So no complaints in terms of responsiveness, but yeah, at times it's not very helpful when you need certain features or are blocked on things which can't be unblocked.

Alternatives Considered

Stride, from Atlassian (discontinued)

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.

Front

Zendesk is by far the market leader here and offers a tremendous solution. It is, of course, very expensive -- especially if you require multi-brand support. Many of the other solutions (except Groove) offer some flavor of multi-brand support but they are not as good as Zendesk. For example, the HappyFox multi-brand solution breaks down when it comes to FAQ setup -- the setup is extremely cumbersome and not worth the effort. The other area to watch out is with mobile support. Zendesk offers a clean and intuitive design on any device automatically out-of-the-box. Others, like Cayzu, are solid, but lack mobile support at this level -- probably a deal-breaker for most.We started using Front before we realized how important a live, robust FAQ resource would be for each site that we support. As we've learned firsthand, it would have been much better to integrate these features from the outset -- and hence we should have chosen something other than Front. If you are just supporting your customers with a single email address and don't have an extensive FAQ or knowledgebase, then Front could be a great option for you.
