We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

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.

Pros

Avaza

  • Avaza is great for project management. I use it to organize client roadmaps by task and deadline. You can also easily time yourself for specific tasks.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

  • I found this the smoothest app with advanced features that helps to express all feelings and knowledge properly. Its various tools and automation programs increase the collaboration with my clients.
  • I use Mattermost to interact with my team members and clients without any disturbance and interference.
  • It has an authentic search function that creates filtering automatically and provides amazing services.

Cons

Avaza

  • More introduction to the features provided
  • More detail on how to work with the day/week functions for time logging
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 an extremely easy to use software, and I would recommend it to every company that is growing. I think they could improve their notification system, as it gets a little spammy sometimes and important notifications get lost. Also needs to improve the number of private chats that you are allowed to create.

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

Avaza

Avaza's time tracking capabilities are much more detailed than Upwork's. Upwork focuses on simplicity, using a simple on/off button and a spot for taking notes about each project, but Avaza gives you more to work with, allowing you to add detailed notes and specify tasks.

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

Avaza

  • Avaza helps keep us organized, and helps us provide accurate estimates for existing and prospective clients.
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
