HeyOrca

HeyOrca is perfect for the social post editing. For example, when I send the content link to my clients, they can easily go in and comment on posts that need editing rather than having to email me changes. Essentially it streamlines client/agency communication. It is perfect for a smaller agency who has less than 20 clients. I think HeyOrca is not for those whose main content is blogs and corresponding social posts. WordPress isn't Integrated, making it inconvenient to manage.

Slack

I don't know a better remote collaboration platform, and I've tried many. Slack works perfect for giving the feeling that you and your co-workers or teammates are in the same time and space, unlike some de facto office applications in my opinion. This for example is shown in how much better the response times are on Slack with our team than any other application. The main problem is that for some users, starting to use Slack seems to be too challenging and difficult

Pros

HeyOrca

  • Provides client friendly view that allows clients to easily see what content will look like on their social platforms.
  • Provides a one-stop option for multiple client and platform content to live.
  • Great customer service and extremely responsive help center.
  • Easy to use and learn interface.

Slack

  • The communication channels have an excellent notification system. Notifications in Slack are one of the things that make it a very beneficial software, because I can be attentive to any movement of the chat channels, also, I can know when I am being mentioned in any of the channels.
  • The transfer of images is completely effective, it does not diminish the quality of the images that are transferred through the chat channels.
  • The application for mobile devices is very complete, I have general access to all the chats that exist within my company, in addition, I also have the ability to reply to messages from this application.
  • The communication channels can be accessed by any employee of any sector, this facilitates the communication of the various sectors and achieves that all sectors can share information between them.

Cons

HeyOrca

  • The interface is kind of slow to respond.
  • The media library sometimes breaks.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • The main problem we have in Slack is that conversations sometimes get out of control and there is no way to regulate this, there is no configuration that controls the amount of messages or the general volume of messages that can be in a channel, which causes our employees to have long topics of conversation that disrupt productivity. I would like to be able to regulate this with some Slack configuration.
  • Slack's search system is one of the features that doesn't work successfully. This search system has a long delay when I insert a word in the search, it takes a long time to perform the search, in addition, it does not show all the results of the searched word, it only shows the most outstanding and most recent results.

Slack works incredibly well and allows our whole remote-first company to work together from all around the World. The flexibility, ease of use and scalability of the solution means that we can continue to grow and make use of the team with a minimum of effort. I can see no obvious reasons why we would migrate to a different tool other than perhaps cost, but whatever savings would disappear in migration/setup time and the initial productivity loss.

Usability

Hey Orca has a lot of really great features, they make the workflow really easy and are extremely available for help with questions. I think there are some minor workflow issues that it could overcome and features it could add on that are available in other apps. It definitely doesn't offer the best analytics and also hasn't offered single image direct publishing like hootsuite does. Yet, it's benefits outweigh those minor inconveniences for our team

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've never had to contact support for Slack which is a great testament to its ease and use. Adding people outside of the organization takes a little getting used to, but ultimately allows for greater collaboration between FTE and contractors. There is no clear alternative to this software, so it's the best we can do for now.

It always helps if you communicate to everyone in the organization how important it is to drop whatever other chat tools they are using and jump quickly to Slack. They will all fall in love with it.

Much easier to use and understand.HeyOrca does what they do and they do it best, they don't complicate it with other things like Sprout Social does.

Slack

Slack is widely used in IT organizations. It gives return values of we had [invested] in it. It provides most of [the] features which need in [the] organization like file sharing, chatting, etc. It has many app integration[s] for task management, meeting schedules, etc. UI is not modern but it is easy to use for any employees.

Return on Investment

HeyOrca

  • Sustains our clients due to its layout and user-friendliness
  • Doesn't really allow for a lot of SEO work in the platform which doesn't help get clients
Michael Neubert | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Slack has helped us to embody one of our company's highest principles, "Care for each other like family, but act like a high-performing team." Because the majority of our employees are remote, Slack has been utterly vital in helping to foster camaraderie in our smaller teams.
