Chose Axero
I evaluated a number of platforms. Here's the list: Mango Apps, Jive, Jostle, Zyncro, Bitrix 24, Exo platform, Huddle, Confluence, Hip Chat, Wrike, Hive. Some of the other platforms were really nice but Communifire was the platform that best meet our needs.
Chose Axero
The customer service from Communifire was what initially hooked us - quick, honest and reliable. With the others mentioned above we did receive some good service, some poor service and at times virtually no service at all. As we progressed with trial accounts of each system …

Specific scenarios where Communifire would be well suited to an organisation, would be companies that are people focused and committed to frequent and open communication channels from both the top-down and bottom-up. It also would suit organizations that are committed to providing the staff opportunities to collaborate, share and actively contribute to company initiatives and planning. If these aren't elements of your organization's culture, the system would still work for you or those companies who just want to push information out and have an effective intranet. Communifire would cater to these scenarios just as well and is more than capable of providing that type of simple solution.

As one
of the great intranet software, Jostle has always helped me in staying
connected with the team members from different departments. The app makes me
feel so much at ease because I know what is happening in all the departments
and if everything is going in the right direction or not. My recommendation is
that this software is very appropriate for growing businesses where people are
not aware of their surroundings and their colleagues' work status. Jostle will
send them notifications on emails whenever they need to be updated regarding
any specific thing that is why I highly recommend this application.

Pros
Axero Solutions
  • Communifire allows people to connect easily through instant chat and messaging. It works similarly to other social media platforms like Facebook so its not hard to learn.
  • Communifire makes it easy to share news and events with our community and the presentation of this information looks very professional.
  • I found Communifire quite easy to configure to our individual needs. There were a lot of options to turn things on or off. This was important to us because in some areas of our community we wanted to allow our contractors many features and in other areas we wanted to really limit what was on offer.
  • We had a big list of things we needed a platform to do. Communifire ticked all the boxes.

Usability
Axero Solutions
This rating has a caveat - there is always room for improvement, and this team gets it. You always learn from customers how to do things better and easier, so it is a constant learning of how people use the site. Although the search engine is exceptional, most people do not use it as their first line of research. Much of the usability has to do with layout - and is not just a software usability item, so the rating is severely dependent up on the layout/options you choose for your usage. And their team will do anything in their power to get the results and layout you want. The areas that need improvement - and acknowledged by the team - are the administrative tools. There are a ton of options, and it takes a little to learn some of those. For most people, however, this won't be an issue, because the support team will always help you. This is always the case with more power. If there were fewer options it would no doubt be easier, but they give you the keys to all of the cars in the lot; so a little more to learn.

Jostle is the tool that is fulfilling our all requirements, I really appreciate the way this is going and giving services. It has smart features. Moreover, Instant messaging is also
available on Jostle. Jostle has made my life very easy as it has given me the
ability to curate all decisions be it minor or be it major to discuss online on
the dedicated platforms. The user interface is very simple and resembles Social
Media a lot so as nowadays more people are becoming used to Social Media so
this can also be a great factor in contributing to Jostle’s success.
