    Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

    Flowdock

    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.

    Pros

    Creately

    • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
    • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
    • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
    • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

    Cons

    Creately

    • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
    • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Flowdock

    • 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.

    I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

    Alternatives Considered

    Creately

    In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.
    Mike Eisenberg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Flowdock

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Creately

    • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
    • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
    Richard Crane | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Flowdock

    • 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.
