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.

Pigeon Messengr

Pigeon Messengr is a really great tool for our company because we have lots of employees in lots of different departments. Being able to send a message that goes to a specific small set of people is really useful. Some information is not relevant for all employees and it is necessary to exclude them for privacy reasons or just to keep from cluttering their workspace. PM does this very well. I'm not sure it would be useful for a very small office or company that doesn't need to communicate across different locations/states/countries.

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.

Pigeon Messengr

  • Doesn't yet integrate with JIRA or Confluence, which means we still have to go directly into those systems to collaborate with our Product team.
  • It requires you to add a photo for the coworker directory. I see why this is helpful for searching, but I just hate having to look at my own photo whenever I'm chatting with someone.
  • Can be hard to use on an iPad or Macbook Air or Chromebook due to high memory usage.

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.

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.

In comparison to other products such as Jabber and Webex, this has been the best application. The price is similar but functionality 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.
Kyle Golembiewski | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pigeon Messengr

  • Positive - less time wasted on emails
  • Positive - less expensive than having a chat tool and a video tool (and phones!)
  • Negative - sometimes tone is hard to convey in text, and this has led to a couple of misunderstandings
