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 for Business

You may be wondering why to choose Skype for Business and pay for Skype when there is also a free option. The free Skype doesn't come with features that would be helpful to a big group as it only has the capability to connect less than 25 participants in any one meeting. If you have a large group of employees that need to meet, Skype for Business is definitely worth the upgrade.

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

  • It offers work tools that manage to maintain a stable connection and quality in each individual and group call.
  • Allows sharing the computer screen for excellent communication.
  • It is a tool that adapts to the current business dynamics that requires it to be efficient in communication through rapid and assertive communication with clients or interested parties.
  • Video calls for the organization of work meetings have become a common experience in smart organizations because they understand that in order to adapt to a constantly changing world they must use more effective work tools.
  • You can make individual and group video calls, send images, emoticons, text messages, voice messages, share files, share the screen in two or group with other communication tools.

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

  • Having multiple Chats/Conversations open, make Skype unresponsive from time to time. Sometimes it has tendencies of crashing even on high-end machines.
  • Grouping chats - Works well, however, there is no option to group appointed meeting conversation with other regular conversations/chats that were not initiated by calendar event.
  • Should be able to have some themes to choose from. Microsoft is going for a dark theme in Windows insider program. Personal Skype already has it why wouldn't Skype for business have it? It is pleasant to the eye, at least in my opinion and for my eyes.

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 great for instant messaging, with some minor issues. It has an acceptable quality for audio and video conferencing. Its integration with Microsoft Office is a big plus.The one that is a real setback is the screen sharing during conferences, which can be really annoying to watch if it doesn't disconnect too often.

As every team has strengths and weaknesses, I believe that every team can improve on points such as speed, practicality, communication. I haven't had many occurrences for which I needed Skype support, but the ones I did have were well attended to and got resolved.

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.

Skype for Business

I have used Google Hangouts previously, and I believe that Skype is a better service. It is intertwined with the calendar. Also, when installing it as part of the Office 365 package, it is only a second install. I also like how it saves the messages within Outlook. Skype for Business also uses end to end encryption. This makes all business communication more secure than Google Hangouts

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.

Skype for Business
