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

Nextcloud

Nextcloud is well suited in any collaboration scenario where users wants to share comments and resources as well as organize events or work together.
It is also very well suited for non-profit organizations as it is free to use and very simple even for non-tech users.
I can't imagine scenarios where it might not be appropriate as running requirements are minimal (php, mysql) so even a single user could find benefit to use it as an alternative for basic icloud or gmail use (files with desktop and mobile clients, calendar and address book).

Nextcloud

  • File sharing (internal, public or federated).
  • One software, many activities (files, address book, calendar, chat, edit, email) ...
  • Groupware, sharing between users or groups is really easy and finely controlled.
  • Integrations and many apps.

I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

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.

Nextcloud

Even excluding the budget and privacy concerns, we selected Nextcloud for its simplicity of use and the UI is very clear.
It just does what it is supposed to do.
  • No license.
  • Much, much ease of use.
  • Not opening several windows.
  • No un-useful services.
  • No automatic update.
  • Control over data.
  • Open-source software.
  • Integrations.
