Likelihood to Recommend

Huddle

If you must simultaneously edit documents on a project, Huddle is not a good option. Also, if your team is not technically savvy, the learning curve can be challenging. Finally, if you need hundreds or thousands of people working on a project, Huddle might not be the right choice. I think it is better for teams under 100 people.

Staffbase

Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

Staffbase

  • Easy to use back-end for posting and managing content—you don't have to rely on IT for support.
  • Software update releases are included in the licensing fees. No need to get outside developers involved in making changes to the platform.
  • Employee segmentation is extremely easy with an API from your HRIS system.
  • Translations are a breeze!
  • Creating forms on the go is easy and efficient!
  • Use your existing organization's SSO for ease of use and security.

Cons

Huddle

  • The desktop app is occasionally unreliable and it is never easy to get to the bottom of it with the tech support people...
  • Tasks are virtually useless as they have no context. We want tasks to be against documents so we can make our workflow more formal but they are not, so we don't use them. A reimplementation of to do and calendar facilities with files/documents as the context would make a huge difference to us.
  • The Huddle Office plugins are a great idea, but they cause us far too many Word and Excel crashes so we have to turn them off.

Staffbase

  • @Mentions could be added.

Alternatives Considered

Huddle

Huddle is quite different from Tibbr. They serve different purposes for the most part. However, they both allow colleagues to improve their communication with one another, minimize email inbox clutter, and improve processes. We use both of these in our organization. Huddle has allowed us to store documents, share communication and generally work in the cloud.

Staffbase

Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise.We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

Return on Investment

Huddle

  • This has made it a lot easier for remote workers to access important documents without needing to use the VPN at home (which does not always work).
  • It clearly shows who updated the last document and when so it is clear who you need to ask if you have questions or something.
  • We have used it in client settings, so this saves money as we do not need to request a separate client laptop or VPN token.

Staffbase

  • Engagement levels increased for non-desk employees without access to a PC.
  • We leverage the tool as part of our crisis management activities, without having to invest in an additional platform.
  • We can issue surveys quickly without investing in additional engagement tools.
