Flowdock

Flowdock is well suited for small teams and to environments that doesn't need too much reliability. I think it has some management problems that can make your life difficult if you have to manage a big amount of users. If you want just a tool communication with basic features (without using any integration or robust features) it can be suitable for you. You should try Flowdock using its free version for a small team and compare with others similar products. Flowdock delivers team chat and collaboration features, but is not necessarily the best product. Maybe some usability problems that disturb me won't be so relevant to you.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

It is a very nice platform where you can collect feedback about the team. It can be used without the names of people. It also has the ability to be updated later. when one of the people on the page scrolls the screen at the same time, all the people on the screen scroll this feature can be improved.

Pros

Flowdock

  • Mobile app experience
  • Software integrations
  • Notifications
Kyle Golembiewski | TrustRadius Reviewer

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • Ability to follow other users' cursors makes it easy for a group to understand what a particular person is explaining
  • Drag-and-drop components for ease of use
  • Quick and easy way to provide access to internal/external users as MURAL (formerly Mural.ly) is a SaaS product

Cons

Flowdock

  • One thing a little bit annoying is that a lot of links to others Flowdock sections (preferences, external services, etc) will open a new window/tab. Each click may take you to a new window and you can get lost easily.
  • There isn't a quick access list to members of your organization to start a private chat. I took a while to find how to do that. The interface and usability could be better.
  • There isn't an app for Windows Phone.
  • Sometimes you try to load some conversation and it doesn't show anything. It is not frequently but happens sometimes.
Vinicius Lima | TrustRadius Reviewer

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • It'd be nice that the zoom regulation could be easier to manage
  • The advanced features are a little bit easy to adopt. Why not adding some agile trainings, or some other tools to facilitate their adoption
  • A faster and easier way to Integrate with ms office

I go with the flow because I'm a newer employee and Flowdock works as advertised. If it were my decision to choose a team communciator for the organization, I'd recommend we go with Slack for its robust features and ever-changing/evolving software integrations. Slack is the outright innovator in the space and will continue to hold that role for some time.

Chat support tends to get back to you within a few hours and are always helpful.

Alternatives Considered

Flowdock

Slack is a similar software.
Private chat or channels are well implemented in both softwares and both are also very easy to setup.
Besides of some usability problemas I think Flowdock is still better than Slack in this user experience and design.
The second point is the price. Flowdock is half price of Slack ($3/month). If you are a student or a non-profit organization, you are able to get some special license.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

Mural was easier to use and share compared with Whiteboard. Whiteboard's functionality is limited. It is also integrated into Teams in an odd way that makes it difficult for team members to refer to old whiteboards. Mural as a stand alone web app is better.

Return on Investment

Flowdock

  • Our company uses it by default.
  • I enjoy the ability to communicate outside of text messages...keeps the conversation on in it's own bucket.
