    Chatter

    [Chatter] is the tool that makes our relations
    stronger. It provides advanced ways of communication. I have trained my many
    team members because of the easy features and functions of this tool, It is very user-friendly. Give it a try if you want to improve your relations with your
    customers. It will surely enhance the productivity of your organization.

    Hiver

    Any work environment where more than one team member is able to address certain customer requests. We used to use Groups, but then it was confusing as to whether or not someone responded, and we needed more transparency between team members. Another example is a person emailing with a billing question. We used to reply and add the billing department's email address or forward the email to billing, but with Hiver, simply assigning it to the billing HIVER Inbox allows anyone to reply directly to the customer without the issue of either the customer or team member remembering to reply all or accidentally replying only to the team member forwarding the email.

    Pros

    Chatter

    • Chatter provides us with a live internal conversation for all to see without the noise that other mediums have i.e. e-mail.
    • One of the main features that really works well is the 'Groups' that you can join. We have multiple groups set up to not only distribute procedural changes and communicate news etc, but also have conversations around upcoming tasks in the months ahead.
    • Chatter works really well in instances where we need to look over historical conversations that have been had and the sentiment of those conversations with our shareholders, often using hashtags.

    Hiver

    • It's easy to set up, and manage ongoing.
    • The customer service and support is amazing- I get check ins, quick responses to enquiries and extras from time to time.
    • It knows what it's doing- it's here to take the issue of gmail not being the best when it comes to shared inboxes and it has provided the perfect solution!
    Megan Shorter | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Chatter

    • Groups does not have the private messaging functionality. Since most collaboration takes place in Groups, private messaging would allow for relevant conversations to be contained and not reside separately.
    • On a Group index page, there are two boxes for Information and Description. These content types seem redundant. You could replace both with a content type called About the Group. There could also be another box listing the Owners for quick reference.
    • On the main index page, the newsfeed has the same look and feel of most social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Jive, IBM Connections, SharePoint. There could be an alternate display of tiles that shows People you interact with most frequently, Files you access most often, most recent Topics, etc. The display could be something like Delve in Microsoft Office 365.
    • On the main index page in the right rail, it would be useful to have the ability to incorporate RSS feeds to gather outside content. Many departments heavily leverage RSS feeds to compile competitive intelligence and cultivate general awareness.
    • For user profiles, can we combine Feed and Overview into one consolidated view? It would save users a click to find relevant information about the person. Also, the Contact module should also have the person's phone number for convenience.
    • The Files feature does not allow for real-time, concurrent document editing. You have to download the document, make your edits, save, and then upload a new version, which only allows for one editor at a time.
    Joseph C. Chang | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Hiver

    • There is currently no way to create a support ticket unless related to an email already received. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to take a call and create a support ticket within HIVER based on the call in the same manner that we can create a ticket from an inbound email.

    Chatter can fulfill at least 85-90% of our business requirements in an easy-to-use platform. Usability is a key requirement and we have had our share of bad usability experiences. In our experience, even the most novice users were able to pick up Chatter in a relatively short amount of time with little/no assistance.

    It is easy to use but the impact of it feels like it is a bit antiquated. It does not feel collaborative and real time. Chatter is more akin to email versus Slack or Hangouts where it feels like problems are being solved as you are communicating.

    If I ever came to a situation where i needed help they do a very good job of getting back to us quickly to explain our error or why we are not seeing something. The support is quick to help provide groups or teams if you seek. Fortunately it is user friendly so I rarely need support

    Alternatives Considered

    Chatter

    Skype is used more for audio calls. Chatter is used to track updates on items of interest in Salesforce. Chatter is deeply integrated with other Salesforce products. No other competing products come close. Slack is a traditional project management tool. So it does not compete with Chatter. Because of its close integration with Salesforce, it is a unique tool for Salesforce users.

    Hiver

    Hiver was the only option we looked at. There didn't appear to be many alternatives in the market

    Return on Investment

    Chatter

    • Chatter has closed deals faster, and brought us in revenue at a quicker rate in turn.
    • Chatter has left some things undone simply because people didn't see it and it has cost us a few deals.
    • Overall, Chatter has brought us a cleaner, more efficient Salesforce process and brought in revenue because of organization.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Hiver

    • Hiver has increased the efficiency by which we address emailed questions and concerns.
    • Hiver increases transparency between team members.
    • Information pertinent to one or more team members is searchable by all applicable team members making it easier to research a situation that otherwise could have been stored in details across separate member email histories.
