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

Slack

Slack is best suited for scenarios when you need to start a conversation with any person you know or don't know. Because notification are quite fast and possibility of getting replies on DM is more than any email.Also Slack it's less appropriate for cases when you need to share large files/codes, because you can't view all the data without downloading it in your system.

Pros

Chanty

  • Notifications
  • App loading speed
Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Communication with members of a project ( via channels features where you can create specific dedicated groups for project members only)
  • Third-party app integration ( Integration with Asana, Gmail, JIRA, GIFy, etc.)
  • Daily Huddles - This has been one of the latest addition to the features, and this has been liked by all of our team members. It makes running daily huddles super easy, considering the WFH environment that we are in.

Cons

Chanty

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

Slack

  • You can have a voice call with you team. But, it's better to have a video call function.
  • Sometimes it's hard to find the direct message in threads.
  • When opening the software and app. The refresh rate after logging in is slow.
  • If you manage 2 businesses. You can't manage them in one platform because you need to create a separate Slack link for it.

As useful as Slack has become within our company, I feel fairly confident we will continue to use Slack as a communication tool. They continue to improve their software and add value to its use within our office. Customer service delivers, which is an absolute must. Looking forward to how they improve.

As long as you use the basic chat features and nothing more, it really is super easy to understand and use. Once you want to take advantage of some of the more advanced features and capabilities, that's when things get complicated. Anyone who has use SMS or a chat program before will be able to figure out the basics though, so rolling this out should be relatively straightforward and not required exhaustive training. Teaching chat etiquette is something else though.

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've never had to contact support for Slack which is a great testament to its ease and use. Adding people outside of the organization takes a little getting used to, but ultimately allows for greater collaboration between FTE and contractors. There is no clear alternative to this software, so it's the best we can do for now.

It always helps if you communicate to everyone in the organization how important it is to drop whatever other chat tools they are using and jump quickly to Slack. They will all fall in love with it.

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.
Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

Slack has expanded functions and much better connection. Slack is heavily customizable whereas 3CX and Google Chat are standard across the board. To my knowledge 3CX and Google Chat do not have the thread function, expanded reactions function, group channels vs group messages, profile photos/titles for users, or customized viewing preferences

Return on Investment

Chanty

  • Increased visibility
  • Increased opportunities
Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Positive -> Easier collaboration as and when required with the ease of use of the tool.
  • Negative -> Too much communication (partly because of the ease of use) which might result in introducing a lack of structure and makeing it overly informal.
