    Chanty

    Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Skype

    Skype is well suited for quick calls back and forth, in both video and audio, among team members who have it already installed and who know how to use it. It is less well-suited when trying to do a presentation for somebody who does NOT have it installed or who lacks internet speed.

    Pros

    Chanty

    • Notifications
    • App loading speed
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Skype

    • The instant chat function is great. Very straightforward, easy to use, easy to learn, no technical issues.
    • Video calls are pretty easy also, user friendly and a mostly stable connection with no issues.
    • Voice calls are easy also, eliminates the need for an external landline or the need to use your cell phone. Clear connections, not really any dropped calls.

    Cons

    Chanty

    • Ability to call group members
    • Ability to video members
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Skype

    • This is really small, but I'd love to see the emoticons updated to emojis.
    • Make calling free like some other communications app providers.
    • Grant the ability to not show that you're online even when you are. Sometimes you want to make a call, but you don't want other people to see you're online and start messaging you.

    I really appreciate Skype for its features and quality standards. It really helps in terms of virtual assistance in the lockdown period where we need to maintain Social distancing and need to work online.

    Skype is not as good as Facetime in terms of ease to glance at it and figure out how it works. I think that's a result of Skype trying to be too many things at once. A lot of the menu and UI could be streamlined, and I would jettison some of the additional functions that have been tacked on over the years to simplify. That being said, while some options are slightly hard to find, they all work flawlessly once found.

    I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

    I am not aware of the current support level for Skype for business, as I have never used even though I have the product.However, the support for Skype's personal paid users is not where it could be. Users who pay for Skype features do not have a clear path to reach out to support. So, rating 6, can be better as soon as I need to use Skype for business support and get a good experience. I will say that I will renew Skype for Business subscription, which is a significant inconsistency on my end. The explanation is that Skype for Business comes bundled with Office for Business, with no additional cost, so why not.

    It can be used on the phone via mobile application as well as on the desktop by logging in to the website. Easily installed and ready to use.

    Alternatives Considered

    Chanty

    In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.

    Skype

    Microsoft Teams provides basically the same services. Local number calling is not available (that I know of) but that only matters if you have any need to use it. Teams is a little more stable, especially with a lot of people on a call. Skype is easier to set up and to operate. Skype also has a larger install base.

    Return on Investment

    Chanty

    • Increased visibility
    • Increased opportunities
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Skype

    • Overall Skype is a good investment. We use regular Skype so its a product that comes with Windows PC's as a standard app. We dont use Skype for Business so this cuts cost overall.
    • Using the basic functions of Skype and not Skype for business does have some downsides but you do save money. There are many other apps we use as well as Skype in order to accomplish all of our goals.
    • The downside of course is that the more you want Skype to do, the more money it will cost the organization as a whole. It does have many more functions which you have to upgrade to Skype for business for. That is my only criticism.
