Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Staffbase

Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

  • It integrates perfectly with our calendar.

Staffbase

  • Easy to use back-end for posting and managing content—you don't have to rely on IT for support.
  • Software update releases are included in the licensing fees. No need to get outside developers involved in making changes to the platform.
  • Employee segmentation is extremely easy with an API from your HRIS system.
  • Translations are a breeze!
  • Creating forms on the go is easy and efficient!
  • Use your existing organization's SSO for ease of use and security.

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

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.

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.

Staffbase

Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise.We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

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

Staffbase

  • Engagement levels increased for non-desk employees without access to a PC.
  • We leverage the tool as part of our crisis management activities, without having to invest in an additional platform.
  • We can issue surveys quickly without investing in additional engagement tools.
