    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.

    Skype is useful for collaborations across distances, including work from home, as well as a more convenient way to communicate with a large group of people. Skype is also useful to communicate with specific parties quickly, rather than relying on cellular service in areas where not as available. Skype is less useful if the team does not use computers , tablets, smartphones, etc in daily workflow as it would rarely be used.

    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.

    Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

    • Quickly check a user's status and communicate with them.
    • Video conferencing is breathtaking, and the voice quality is excellent.
    • It's a very user-friendly site with straightforward responses.
    • Cloud, hybrid and on-premise deployment options are available for document sharing via chat.
    • The video conferencing quality is excellent, and it is possible to organize your groups in a professional manner.
    • This tool is easy to use and integrates with Calendar to view team members' schedules.

    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

    Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

    • Skype's UI leaves a lot to be desired, especially considering newer platforms like Zoom, Teams, Slack, Meet, and so on. It's slow and lacks many features that are now de facto in the newer communication apps.
    • Skype calendar also is often buggy - meeting times do not get updated on the calendar even if the correct time does come up on the Outlook calendar.
    • It does not give you the option to mute chats - oftentimes, you want to keep some group chats on mute without leaving them entirely.
    • Closing off a chat before it's saved will remove it from Skype history. You'd need to go search for it on Outlook mail.

    The software is simple to install and configure. It is rather simple to explain for correct use. It is possible to profile users for the different functions offered. It is integrated quite completely with Outlook and with Active Directory security. It performs all communication functions well with one or more interlocutors and the possibility of granting control of your computer is convenient.

    Skype for Business is fairly user-friendly and has a good UI. It has strong audio and video conference call capabilities. It's easy to conduct meetings with various stakeholders across different locations and timezones. The chat and share a file or share my screen functions work seamlessly. If your company uses Office 365, then I would highly recommend it.

    I have only had to reach out to the Support team at Skype for Business once with an issue, and I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by the quickness and thoroughness of their response. The wait time was short and my question was dealt with politely and clearly, so I would say the support team has it together.

    Skpe for business is utilized company wide in regards to my company. Everyone not only uses it, but uses it often. It is an effective way of communicating. It also integrates very nicely with outlook and all conversation history is pushed to a folder within the outlook system. We also have it so that if someone misses a message, they are sent an email reminder saying that there is a message that went unread.

    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.

    For the below reason I will always choose this app over its competitors: Better audio and video quality, Little to no disconnections or freezing when on a call/video conference Integrates well with mailbox/ calendar/ one drive, and SharePoint is easy to use

    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

    Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

    • Skype for Business has enabled a migration in part away from fixed line telephony and introduced the user to mobile working with a headset which cannot be overstated as being a game changer.
    • Being able to schedule Skype for Business meetings through Outlook has meant meetings with colleagues without a meeting room has been a great enabler.
