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

Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

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.
Benjamin Hale | TrustRadius Reviewer

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

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.

Return on Investment

Stride, from Atlassian (discontinued)

  • Stride helps with keeping your email inbox cleaner and more organized. More conversational messages can be done through Stride leaving our emails less cluttered and finding emails easier.
  • Stride assists with keeping a record of all your past conversations with all team members. Referring to previous communications help us keep track of current statuses of projects.
  • Stride helps us keep track of documents we've shared in the past with the team and retrieve them if we need to refer back to them later.

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.
