Crowdbase

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

Microsoft Teams

It is best in screen sharing and improving regularly. Audio and Video calling quality is top notch. But doesn't work well with slow internet connection. Call drops are frequent. Notifications are quick and can be easily viewed at the bottom of the desktop without having to open the application. Integration with outlook is not as good as skype for business needs much improvement in this area.

Microsoft Teams

  • Lets employees know who is online and makes it easy to contact them for questions.
  • Able to see if someone is busy and should not be disturbed which helps save time in trying to contact them or hunt them down.
  • Allows specific groups to be created where we can share ideas and brainstorm without having to interrupt other employees in the office.

Cons

Crowdbase

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

Microsoft Teams

  • Lack of rollout plans from MS that businesses can use to improve user adoption.
  • Slack still has more connectors.
  • Meetings could more intuitive and most of the screen is just pictures of people.
  • The desktop application is very large and absorbs a lot of system resources.
  • Multiple users cannot share screens at once, one at a time only.
  • Can't choose where to put files from conversations, they automatically are put in a Teams SharePoint.

I have deducted one point just so beacuse the GUI of Teams is a bit difficult to understand for a first time user and thus the user takes quite a lot of time to understand the same and use all its features and Secondly, the software is pretty heavy and thus it takes some extra time to do some tasks as compared to other products.

Getting support for any MS Product kind of feels like pulling teeth. I have looked for support on the slowness of Teams to try and resolve it, but there is nothing really out there even from the MS reps other than deleting the hidden appsdata folder for Teams or uninstall/reinstall the software or just use the web-based Teams app.

Alternatives Considered

Crowdbase

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.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is very similar to Slack in that they are both chat clients that also leverage team communication. While we use both Slack and Teams at my organization, I find myself sticking to Teams for the most part due to its already built-in integration with the Office 365 suite. Also, Teams is our main communication tool for the IT department. Slack is used in our organization for communicating across teams that are outside of IT. Also, daily tasks like Scrum are used in Slack.

Return on Investment

Crowdbase

  • Encourages communication
  • Easy to use
  • Before crowdbase we never though of collaborating this way

Microsoft Teams

  • We were already paying for Office 365 but now we got a great collaboration tool to go along with it.
  • We are able to stay connected with employees across the United States and no longer have to fly people back to headquarters for meetings and conferences, saving on transportation and lodging costs.
