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

Troop Messenger

  • Jointly code helps two or more developers work on the same code. They can share the same code editor for writing and editing.
  • Any participant of the group call can add more participants to the ongoing group call.
  • Integrations that enable users to work on the apps within Troop Messenger.
  • Search filters help you find groups, text files, images, videos, and more in just one go.

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.
