Likelihood to Recommend

Deltek WorkBook

My recommendation very much depends on who the colleague is. I would recommend WorkBook if it is an accountant, project manager or someone similar, and if the setup is done within WorkBook and passwords, etc. are being used within WorkBook only. I would tell IT Managers to avoid the application and think twice in terms of access management etc.

Slack

When there's a team that spans time zones and continents, Slack is the perfect tool for communication & collaboration. It houses a workplace directory, so any employee can be searched for by name. Sending a direct message to any individual in the company is as simple as finding their name, then typing a message & hitting send! Essentially, it's a hub for all communication -- individual, team, and company-wide announcements can be quickly & easily disseminated using Slack.

Slack

  • Slack is a solid chat tool that works across a variety of platforms, with a very low barrier for entry: new users can be invited via email, and can use web-based, desktop, or mobile versions of the application.
  • Slack has really captured the zeitgeist of digital culture, including strong support for customizing look and feel (including custom emojis), and a plethora of integrations with popular web-based tools, including Pivotal Tracker and GitHub on the productive side, and Giphy.com on the fun side.
  • Slack continues to refine and improve their product, with new features being rolled out just about every month.
  • Slack offers a great value in their free version of the app, with most of the tool's functionality available for no cost.

Cons

Deltek WorkBook

  • The integrations on IT level are not great and should be improved.
  • Change of IP's that's used for logins are being changed without reporting it to super users.

Slack

  • The sorting of channels - it's a bit confusing, could be better sorted, it would make it easier to search and make it more agile.
  • Search - It could also improve, it is not bad, but in some cases (rare) it is difficult to find the term that you want.
  • Heavy performance in other operating systems - At least in Linux, Slack seems to do a little more machine performance than when it is used on a computer running Windows.

We've been thoroughly impressed and hence will renew the application for sure as it's meeting and at times exceeding our exceptions in getting things done. A surely shot application that is recommended for a startup, a small company and also very large enterprise and also for multiple open source projects.
Given the points stated, it's a renew for us.

Everything just works. I think the navigation and usability is quite intuitive. I have never had to look up any information or google how to use a feature of Slack (both in the desktop form and on the mobile app). I've never heard any complaints from our other employees either. I have been asked to remind people how to set up reminders, ironically. Although that itself is really simple too (you type "/remind" and then the reminder details).

I don't need to be very technical to use the Slack or to integrate tools into Slack. Adding an app (integration) is seamless and the platform walks me through the process. I can communicate with my colleagues quickly either with chat or by using the call feature to phone them. If I ever have a product question, I can quickly go to one of our product channels and search for related questions or pose a question that our experts monitor. These features have made me more effective in my day and in managing my customer base

Atlassian actually ended up shutting down HipChat and partnering with Slack, but these are areas in which I think Slack outperformed HipChat:
  • Better UX
  • Ability to edit messages once they've been sent
  • More functionalities and integrations with different tools
  • Ability to share channels with other organizations
  • Better mobile app
  • Dark mode

Return on Investment

Deltek WorkBook

  • WorkBook is one of the cheaper solutions on the market, which, in the long term, gives a great ROI.
  • We have spent a lot of time on support which is a negative impact.
Christopher Fritz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • I believe this has increased productivity amongst the team in that we can get immediate responses to issues and questions, allowing us to have a better continuous flow of work
  • Having an easy to use tool like this speeds up on boarding, as new team members can easily learn. They also will have access to all existing resources within the tool
  • We have been able to customize communication groups to include those appropriate, eliminating unnecessary noise regarding areas not relevant to particular team members.
