Flock

Flock might be useful in community work or in college communications. It can also be used in start-ups where the cost would be a factor. Flock needs to up its game if it really wants to compete with giants like Slack. For large companies, Flock should be not be used as there are better alternatives to it in the market.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is best in this situation of pandemics. All the companies need to adopt the technology to work from remote and safe the world. Addressing the issue our company also move towards the use of the remote work assistance app Microsoft teams that were designed by Microsoft. It [helps] us to manage all remote work efficiently and also allow us to make regular conference through the app.

Pros

Flock

  • Real-time communication is perfect.
  • The mobile apps really let us take everything on the go.
  • It integrates perfectly with our calendar.

Microsoft Teams

  • Video calls are great with Microsoft Teams. They've made big improvements over the last year and I rarely have issue with getting on. It's nice when things just work.
  • The most used functionality is, of course, the chat feature. It does what it's supposed to do and you can create chat groups from whoever you'd like. We use it a lot when there is a special project and a team from various groups get together for a short period of time to get things done.
  • An overlooked function is the ability to search anything within Microsoft Teams. Any photo, document, or chat can be searched and found pretty easily. I can't tell you how many times this has saved me from having to rewrite something or start over.

Cons

Flock

  • Flock's video and audio quality is sometimes poor as a result of poor internet connectivity
  • It has a messaging limit of 10,000 messages which makes it hard for us to keep messages for future reference

Microsoft Teams

  • File Storage is a little clunky for new users, there was a learning curve in understanding the difference between Channels, Teams, Files, and where to communicate. The UI could be improved.
  • The connection of the file storage with Sharepoint gets tricky, where if we edit a certain file in one location, either it sometimes mirrors the action on the other platform, but sometimes it doesn't. It created a lot of issues.

Microsoft Teams is included with our Office 365 subscription and we have no intention of migrating off of Office 365 and Microsoft products. Since Microsoft Teams is included for free with our Office 365 subscription, and since we enjoy all the features, benefits, and functionality, there is no question that our team will continue to use the product

While the overall offer of Microsoft Teams is compelling, the whole organisation and UI has quite some confusing edges. There is a mixture of desktop apps, web apps and web apps displayed inside the desktop apps. Moreover, the CPU usage of some of the Microsoft Teams components are dreadful (e.g., OneDrive for Business is the highest CPU-consumer, even above 3D and video software). Somehow, the mixture of development approaches does not provide a really coherent view. As Microsoft Teams also incorporates the Planner, OneDrive, OneNote and Sharepoint toolsets, it doen't help that they all have different interfaces and that navigation between them is confusing. Files in OneDrive, versus Sharepoint online versus files inside a team files folder seem to be disjunct. Opening a Word file from the locally synced OneDrive does not present the same syncing experience as opening the same file via Microsoft Teams into the Desktop app. And occasional sync problems don't help either. That said, collaboratively editing MS Office files has improved a lot and is (almost) comparable to collaboratively editing Google documents. Almost.

We've only needed customer support a few times with Flock (mainly concerning app integration and security), and they've always been timely and helpful, which are the only things I truly need from support. The response rate was still rapid, and there's plenty of support available online as well for Flock.

Microsoft customer support is great, although it can be a bit of a hassle getting to a representative. Also, I have not had issues with Teams to have to give Microsoft a call, so that is positive! Microsoft also has great knowledge-based articles for information on tasks and how-tos on Teams.

Alternatives Considered

Flock

I did not like Google Hangouts. Hangouts is more geared toward personal communication instead of business related communication. Flock is also a lot easier to use and has more options related to a business setting.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams are very straightforward, user-friendly and so easy to use. What's good about using this is that we don't need to have any training, just have an account and everyone can easily navigate and explore the features. It's very secure which helps us to share important files with each other. Calling and chatting have never been easy.

Return on Investment

Flock

  • It did provide a creative space for conversation and this does equal a great return on investment, considering the investment is free for the base use.
  • For the team members who enjoyed using it, it helped them save time in their day by having a repository for notes and creative ideas.
Tim Mack | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Teams

  • I think it has allowed us to leverage our Office365 more effectivly since all of the apps are synced together.
  • It has really allowed us transition away from more formal webex meetings and have a more free flow conversation.
  • It also gives us a more direct line to our manager if we need there input they can easily join our team chat.
