In my opinion Yamdu is suitable for both small and large projects as it has a wide and customized environment.

Pros

HipChat (discontinued)

  • HipChat is the first enterprise team chat application, hence it invented the idea of itself.
  • Cross-platform support and hence runs on most of the computing devices
  • Efficient search
  • Completely free for smaller teams
  • Webhooks +1
  • Integrations with Atlassian products and other systems as well. For example, Infra monitoring applications.
  • Custom emojis
  • Media and file sharing directly or in a group
  • Video chat

  • Total financial control of the project in all areas.

Cons

HipChat (discontinued)

  • Mobile app is not very responsive on iOS. Sometimes connection to Hipchat servers is taking too long even on good networks.
  • Both mobile and desktop versions have no alphabetical or recent sorting for groups and chat rooms.
  • Video and audio calls are pretty useless, they're slow and not always work.
  • The whole user interface is simple but very outdated - apparently Atlassian didn't focus too much on Hipchat even though they tried in the last 2 years.

  • More specific financial management reports.
  • Creation of some instant messaging software for the team.

The app itself had a pleasant if not generic interface. As a user experience expert and engineer I can say the interface is fairly intuitive if not bland. It does what you expect it to do and it's available on iOS and Android devices. If I recall it was generally pretty light weight in terms of installation size.

HipChat support is good . Responds in timely manner when ever we have raised the request via email , phone and gives us continue update on the request .Though most of the questions are answered by HipChat FAQs , but they can still improve it and add more to the knowledge base .

Alternatives Considered

HipChat (discontinued)

We tried a lot of chat clients before choosing HipChat. The Skype for Business UI on the Mac side was 5 years old and terrible. Mac users hated the app including our CTO. Cisco Jabber was expensive to license and maintain; Skype was open to the public which took time away due to users dealing with spam and could allow viruses and malware. HipChat being a closed product, centrally managed and available to try without an upfront investment was perfect for our environment. All our Agile teams have their own room, chat and can communicate with others quickly and easily.

I was recommended by a friend in the production area and the product was not evaluated before I did everything with normal tools like Excel, etc.

Scalability

Actually I never shared of HipChat using with more than 25 persons in team simultaneously, but I believe it can be scaled for much largest collaboration teams. At least it works flawlessly for us, with transparent integration with Jira, and I am not see any reasons for some troubles for work at big scale.

Return on Investment

HipChat (discontinued)

  • HipChat has increased the effiency with which I am able to communicate with my coworkers, particularly those who work out of other offices. Having a light, portable messaging solution has been beneficial for checking in on small things without the need to send emails or schedule phone calls.
Christina Wofford | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yamdu

  • Positive impact, better management of the entire production process.
  • Negative impact, clearly shows all the flaws in the process that my company has to improve.
