    Beekeeper is one of those gems which can not get replaced by any other application that easily as it comes in everyday use. Being an SDE I can say that it get used a lot in creating, updating or deleting any data also sharing files is really fast among users. It is suitable if you have a vivid project and need to store huge database and contacts and interaction is daily requirement . It takes sometime to get load but that does not make it any less suitable.

    Flowdock is well suited for small teams and to environments that doesn't need too much reliability. I think it has some management problems that can make your life difficult if you have to manage a big amount of users. If you want just a tool communication with basic features (without using any integration or robust features) it can be suitable for you. You should try Flowdock using its free version for a small team and compare with others similar products. Flowdock delivers team chat and collaboration features, but is not necessarily the best product. Maybe some usability problems that disturb me won't be so relevant to you.

    Cons

    Beekeeper AG

    • It takes a few seconds to a minute to get load with all the tables and database.
    • Its UI could be a bit better and it has room for improvement.
    • Sometimes it lags that could be resolved as well.

    • One thing a little bit annoying is that a lot of links to others Flowdock sections (preferences, external services, etc) will open a new window/tab. Each click may take you to a new window and you can get lost easily.
    • There isn't a quick access list to members of your organization to start a private chat. I took a while to find how to do that. The interface and usability could be better.
    • There isn't an app for Windows Phone.
    • Sometimes you try to load some conversation and it doesn't show anything. It is not frequently but happens sometimes.

        I go with the flow because I'm a newer employee and Flowdock works as advertised. If it were my decision to choose a team communciator for the organization, I'd recommend we go with Slack for its robust features and ever-changing/evolving software integrations. Slack is the outright innovator in the space and will continue to hold that role for some time.

        Slack is a similar software.
        Private chat or channels are well implemented in both softwares and both are also very easy to setup.
        Besides of some usability problemas I think Flowdock is still better than Slack in this user experience and design.
        The second point is the price. Flowdock is half price of Slack ($3/month). If you are a student or a non-profit organization, you are able to get some special license.

        • Our company uses it by default.
        • I enjoy the ability to communicate outside of text messages...keeps the conversation on in it's own bucket.
