Crowdbase (discontinued)

I wouldn't suggest Crowdbasefor smaller companies, even for bigger companies a more integrated solution would be desirable. It may suit companies that want their collaboration separate from project management and CRM, but at least for our organisation it seems to make more sense to have most of our work tools in one place

Discord

Discord is a phenomenal tool for communication, especially when dealing with a younger demographic. With the ability to create servers, specific rooms, and to voice chat, Discord is really flexible. Because it's used primarily by the gaming community, sometimes it lacks in a professional presentation and can seem a bit more casual.

Discord

  • The amazing stickers and emojis.
  • No limit to the number of channels we can join.
  • The QR facility is a good one for easy joining.

Cons

Crowdbase (discontinued)

  • It is very limited
  • Although it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.
  • It isn't customisable like podio.

Discord

  • They can improve their UI for better user experience.
  • Sometimes sending a direct message to someone gets difficult in discord. They should try to change the functionality and make it simple.
  • They can work to improve functionalities like search since it lags most of the time.

I would say its overall usability is good, but it does take some getting used to and training on it. You cannot jump right in and understand it all. Someone had to explain it all to me and how the different functions and commands worked within the program and groups.

There is plenty of online documentation and knowledge base articles. As well as having an open API to be able to tie it into other products makes it a really viable solution for any business. I have never had to contact support, any questions which I have need answered can be found in the documentation,

Alternatives Considered

Crowdbase (discontinued)

Crowdbase's strength may lie in its ability to do just one main thing well, but for us this was a massive limitation. I know that it is not trying to be Podio and it is therefore unfair to compare the two but there are features that overlap. for us Podio was better suited.

Discord

For our gaming nights, communication is vital especially in our multiplayer games , and the only voice product that worked smoothly is Discord. Skype's sound would cut out and Zoom's security was poor. Also Discord allows you to join public servers and there are roles which protect members from the public. Skype, google hangouts and Zoom's file sharing and text mode is not good compared to discord

Return on Investment

Crowdbase (discontinued)

  • Encourages communication
  • Easy to use
  • Before crowdbase we never though of collaborating this way
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Discord

  • Discord has been such a bonus to our productivity. Instead of sending meeting links and starting lengthy email threads, we were able to quickly hop on a call with other people and get things done!
  • Some colleagues had to change their PCs as Discord was messing up their system due to the heavy system load.
