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

    Slack

    Great for both in office and remote environments as a supplement to internal email. Whereas email communication can be slow and crowded, Slack allows for quick communication that is well organized. Great for corporate, internal communication that can also be utilized for outsourcing operations. For long and detailed announcements, especially ones involving legal implications, Slack should not be utilized over email

    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.

    Slack

    • Excellent in terms of tracking new and upcoming orders for business.
    • Create various channels to manage your team and departments.
    • The User Interface (UI) is friendly.
    • Portable and to use. They both have software, website and application.
    • Excellent in terms of fast communication with employer, team and co-workers.

    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

    Slack

    • Reflecting the availability status of an individual based off of integration with other products e.g., Microsoft Outlook. Currently, it does indicate that there is a meeting on Outlook but syncing the status takes it a step further.
    • Search feature can be made better with the ability to search based on a certain criteria like a Person etc. This feature is not as mature as it can be.

    Slack works incredibly well and allows our whole remote-first company to work together from all around the World. The flexibility, ease of use and scalability of the solution means that we can continue to grow and make use of the team with a minimum of effort. I can see no obvious reasons why we would migrate to a different tool other than perhaps cost, but whatever savings would disappear in migration/setup time and the initial productivity loss.

    Everything just works. I think the navigation and usability is quite intuitive. I have never had to look up any information or google how to use a feature of Slack (both in the desktop form and on the mobile app). I've never heard any complaints from our other employees either. I have been asked to remind people how to set up reminders, ironically. Although that itself is really simple too (you type "/remind" and then the reminder details).

    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.

    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

    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

    Slack

    Discord is highly functional and has very good support for voice and video chat. However, Discord feels aimed more at actively getting people together on the app itself. Discord wants you to be there with everyone, while Slack wants you to keep in touch. Discord feels like it's aimed towards building communities; Slack feels like it's aimed towards helping people communicate. It's a minor difference, but it makes Slack feel like a better option for work and planning.

    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

    Slack

    • Slack has significantly improved team collaboration and communication, and as a result, a large number of users are now able to communicate more effectively.
    • It's easier to handle remote work with Slack because it's so simple to do so. On small projects, better communication and collaboration are essential.
    • When it comes to business environments, Slack is the best. Saving time by automating routine tasks is one benefit of the technology's existence.
