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
Overall, Mattermost is a great option for teams looking for an enterprise-grade solution. It's easy to set up and use, has plenty of integrations, and offers advanced security features. While it may not be the right choice for everyone, there are certainly some compelling reasons why you might want to give this project management tool a try.
CollaborationInteraction with staffGreat way to engage staff and support each other
We collaborate as a team with great efficiency and ease, we solve any problem or need together through the Mattermost chat.Communication is made regardless of the distance where my colleagues are, it is very fast and does not slow down the progress of our work.We can create many channels and be more efficient, we enhance the internal productivity of each department.
It is very limitedAlthough it has an API it doesn't link to the services we use.It isn't customisable like podio.
Some of the features in paid plans could be free, however, they have much offered in free plan (self-hosted)The Desktop App we use on windows has some bugs, like when Mattermost is down and comes back up, the app needs restart
Mattermost works perfectly within our company as a way to communicate seamlessly. I have had no issues with the product and continue to use it often while on and off site. The mobile app allows me to continue to communicate with my team even when I don't have my laptop with me.
It's an extremely easy to use software, and I would recommend it to every company that is growing. I think they could improve their notification system, as it gets a little spammy sometimes and important notifications get lost. Also needs to improve the number of private chats that you are allowed to create.
We have not had to contact support for Mattermost ever. All that we have needed has been available in the documentation or website. One of our DevOps team members set it up in a couple of hours. The whole team was using Mattermost that same day. No support needed.
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.
Before Mattermost, we used Stride first, and then Slack as our communication platform. Stride got discontinued so it is not comparable, but Slack got very costly for us, with basically the same features as Mattermost - a matter of fact, the "reply" feature is surprisingly non-existent on Slack (you can reply by opening a different thread, but that is hard to follow in most cases), and not only exists in Mattermost but very straightforward. We have considered using Discord too, but then chose Mattermost for its open-source nature, and the possibility of running our very own self-hosted servers, with total control.
Encourages communicationEasy to useBefore crowdbase we never though of collaborating this way
It has reduced ticket quantity by a vast percentage, which has reduced costs due to less call being placed to the help deskIt has reduced email flow as well, which requires less management by Mail AdministratorsIt has made software developers within the organization very happy, as most of them are now ambassadors for Mattermost
