Hiver

Any work environment where more than one team member is able to address certain customer requests. We used to use Groups, but then it was confusing as to whether or not someone responded, and we needed more transparency between team members. Another example is a person emailing with a billing question. We used to reply and add the billing department's email address or forward the email to billing, but with Hiver, simply assigning it to the billing HIVER Inbox allows anyone to reply directly to the customer without the issue of either the customer or team member remembering to reply all or accidentally replying only to the team member forwarding the email.

Igloo

Igloo is a well-suited option for teams/companies that want to build an employee intranet with some other interesting features, like file storage and sharing, internal communications, and resource and knowledge management. All of these features may help your workers increase productivity significantly by centralizing everything in one robust and reliable platform. However, it can be less appropriate if costs are a problem for you, due to the pricing. So, if you will not be using several features and just want an intranet for you company, you may want to go with another solution.

Pros

Hiver

  • It's easy to set up, and manage ongoing.
  • The customer service and support is amazing- I get check ins, quick responses to enquiries and extras from time to time.
  • It knows what it's doing- it's here to take the issue of gmail not being the best when it comes to shared inboxes and it has provided the perfect solution!

Igloo

  • Notifications: Igloo can push email updates to users.
  • Organization: Igloo allows for you to create pages, sub pages, and many layer deep sections. You can also organize the layout of your pages.
  • Versioning: it's super easy to reserve and edit documents for offline use. And you can see who last edited a document and when.
  • Offline access: there's a desktop version you can use very easily. It's really good for dropping a bunch of files at once.

Cons

Hiver

  • There is currently no way to create a support ticket unless related to an email already received. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to take a call and create a support ticket within HIVER based on the call in the same manner that we can create a ticket from an inbound email.

Igloo

  • Their UI is not used-friendly. Their use of Igloo-specific terminology made it difficult to understand how each function of the site worked. They would repeatedly say, for example, "a ___ is really a ___" vs. just calling it what the function actually is.
  • Implementation was a far cry from their sales support. After basically nickel-and-diming you for everything, they - very poorly - cap your use of their implementation support team.
  • Overall, Igloo didn't work for our organization because they do multiple things decently vs a few things excellently. The experience with Igloo was unremarkable.

Alternatives Considered

Hiver

Hiver was the only option we looked at. There didn't appear to be many alternatives in the market

Igloo

Igloo was much more intuitive to set-up and navigate. In addition, Jive did not have file folders for documents and that was really needed.

Return on Investment

Hiver

  • Hiver has increased the efficiency by which we address emailed questions and concerns.
  • Hiver increases transparency between team members.
  • Information pertinent to one or more team members is searchable by all applicable team members making it easier to research a situation that otherwise could have been stored in details across separate member email histories.

Igloo

  • Igloo has helped us save a lot of time on communications and sharing.
  • We have also solved the problem of communication failure between people.
