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.

Slack

When there's a team that spans time zones and continents, Slack is the perfect tool for communication & collaboration. It houses a workplace directory, so any employee can be searched for by name. Sending a direct message to any individual in the company is as simple as finding their name, then typing a message & hitting send! Essentially, it's a hub for all communication -- individual, team, and company-wide announcements can be quickly & easily disseminated using Slack.

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.

Slack

  • Slack is a solid chat tool that works across a variety of platforms, with a very low barrier for entry: new users can be invited via email, and can use web-based, desktop, or mobile versions of the application.
  • Slack has really captured the zeitgeist of digital culture, including strong support for customizing look and feel (including custom emojis), and a plethora of integrations with popular web-based tools, including Pivotal Tracker and GitHub on the productive side, and Giphy.com on the fun side.
  • Slack continues to refine and improve their product, with new features being rolled out just about every month.
  • Slack offers a great value in their free version of the app, with most of the tool's functionality available for no cost.

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

Slack

  • The sorting of channels - it's a bit confusing, could be better sorted, it would make it easier to search and make it more agile.
  • Search - It could also improve, it is not bad, but in some cases (rare) it is difficult to find the term that you want.
  • Heavy performance in other operating systems - At least in Linux, Slack seems to do a little more machine performance than when it is used on a computer running Windows.

We've been thoroughly impressed and hence will renew the application for sure as it's meeting and at times exceeding our exceptions in getting things done. A surely shot application that is recommended for a startup, a small company and also very large enterprise and also for multiple open source projects.
Given the points stated, it's a renew for us.

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).

  • Slack's help page offers almost everything you need to know about using Slack.
  • It provides options like getting started, using Slack, profiles, preferences, administration and customization of workspace, and roles and rights of the users, a tutorial for the integration of tools into your Slack workspace.
  • Slack also gives an option to contact them where we can report bugs or ask questions by attaching a file and sending a query.
  • The customer support is quite good, whether you are a free user or paid customer, the responses from the support team are very quick and, of course, you get added attention if you are a paying customer.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Atlassian actually ended up shutting down HipChat and partnering with Slack, but these are areas in which I think Slack outperformed HipChat:
  • Better UX
  • Ability to edit messages once they've been sent
  • More functionalities and integrations with different tools
  • Ability to share channels with other organizations
  • Better mobile app
  • Dark mode

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

Slack

  • I believe this has increased productivity amongst the team in that we can get immediate responses to issues and questions, allowing us to have a better continuous flow of work
  • Having an easy to use tool like this speeds up on boarding, as new team members can easily learn. They also will have access to all existing resources within the tool
  • We have been able to customize communication groups to include those appropriate, eliminating unnecessary noise regarding areas not relevant to particular team members.
