    The platform is well suited for different situations depending on who is using it and with what purpose. It can definitely be used by freelancers for business-related projects, by illustrators and designers for brainstorming sessions and sketches, by students for studying, and by educators for teaching and research. But I think these apps aren't suitable for large-scale projects like editing a feature film or creating an animated feature film.

    Google Chat

    Well suited for businesses of all sizes. HOWEVER, I would say keep the chat groups limited at the departmental level, ensure that your moderator or the individual responsible for the group keeps it on topic, and have your IT team monitor it from time to time. Google Chat gets used so much in our organization that we have rules and regs in our Employee Handbook regarding its proper use (and when used PROPERLY, it can be very effective).

    Pros

    Creativity 365

    • The apps are super easy to use.
    • Creativity 365 software pack encompasses a wide range of functionalities, overlapping between each other to offer a complete toolset.
    • It is great for capturing and highlighting important website contents with PDF Markup.
    • Write-On Video is very helpful to spice up my videos and mash photos and videos together to create new content.

    Google Chat

    • Google Hangouts Chat allows you to send and receive messages real time with emoticons that can help you express your mood.
    • You can download and upload image file that can be use for business process and more.
    • Google Hangouts Chat also allows you to make a calls to reach other users.What I like the most is the awesome screen sharing while on call.

    Cons

    Creativity 365

    • Since it's a content creation toolset, it would be great if there was a photo editing tool.
    Patrick Enderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Chat

    • I wish it was easier to turn the sound off, I hate being in meetings and my chat is blowing up.
    • Needing to "accept" a chat invite from someone within my org seems counter-intuitive.
    • Some people have trouble getting their notifications before midnight, somehow?
    • Prior to downloading the app, group messages didn't come up for me on my computer.

    It's not perfect. There are occasional glitches, drop-outs, and it takes a bit to get everything loaded and working. But it is significantly better than Zoom or GoToMeeting when you're in instructional settings. I know my teacher friends here like it and the administrators and parents seem to be satisfied too.

    I have not needed to contact the support folks for Google Hangouts Chat, so I can't speak to this with any accuracy. The online instructions are fairly clearly written, so it is fairly intuitive to start with. I did not feel the need to use the support people anyway.

    Alternatives Considered

    Creativity 365

    Airtable has a free version that offers basic functionalities that Creativity 365 does not offer. Airtable integrates with 25 different applications and software to make collaboration easier, while Creativity 365 only integrates with 13. Even though key features of Creativity 365 and Airtable should matter you should also carefully explore the integrations provided by each product. Very often you will already be making use of various kinds of SaaS software in your company and it’s much more beneficial to choose software that integrates well with each other. If you do that you will be able to guarantee an effortless transfer of data between your teams and software used, which can significantly reduce the time spent on migrating between one solution and the next.

    Prior to Google Hangouts, our company used Spark. Spark was not integrated into our email, therefore it couldn't be easily accessed in the same browser. With Spark we also couldn't search our emails for keywords in a conversation, searching had to be done manually. The one feature I enjoyed about Spark was a request to get a user's attention: If I had an urgent question and I wanted to ensure the recipient saw my message/question, I would request their attention and the message screen would pop up on their screen.

    Return on Investment

    Creativity 365

    • It has definitely reduced work load times, and allows me more time to work on important projects.
    • The PDF mark up and the ability to write text over videos has made presentations a lot more efficient to create and thus is time saving.
    • Using NoteLedge to take notes and add photos to those notes helps with being better organized.
    Richard Perroset | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Chat

    • In my work it allows us to report troubles that may cost loss of investment thru Google Hangouts Chat we were able to communicate on how to fix it.
    • I hope we can make it on our own choice of colors to heightened workers vibe
    • It is connected to your email
