Nextcloud

While searching for tools to satisfy a quickly scaling online startup, we found Nextcloud is well suited for today's remote collaborative team. Nextcloud has just the right toolset for a collaborative workspace including video, chat, many file formats accepted, and intuitive user interface. Comparatively other popular tools like Trello were distracting with more features than functionality. Working with Nextcloud is much like having a workspace with all your content and tools available anywhere on any device, without the ads, distractions, and irrelevant functionality. We will continue to utilize Nextcloud as a remote workspace for evolving and scaling teams.

Slack

I can be on a phone call and still answer questions without being interrupted. This helps with increasing the opportunities for us to serve our clients. Instead of having to update my status because of a meeting, Outlook is connected. Saves me a few steps of changing status or calls getting transferred while I am in a meeting.

Pros

Nextcloud

  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Superb synchronization agent.
  • Integration with AD/LDAP, external file sources, and other tools is top-notch.
  • Wide variety of "apps" (plugins).
Joe Foran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Excellent in terms of tracking new and upcoming orders for business.
  • Create various channels to manage your team and departments.
  • The User Interface (UI) is friendly.
  • Portable and to use. They both have software, website and application.
  • Excellent in terms of fast communication with employer, team and co-workers.

Cons

Nextcloud

  • Slow in comparison to other solutions
  • May be complex for the start since there are lots of apps and features
  • May be not focusing on core topics
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Reflecting the availability status of an individual based off of integration with other products e.g., Microsoft Outlook. Currently, it does indicate that there is a meeting on Outlook but syncing the status takes it a step further.
  • Search feature can be made better with the ability to search based on a certain criteria like a Person etc. This feature is not as mature as it can be.

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.

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 never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Nextcloud

Nextcloud stacks up pretty well against Mattermost and ownCloud. I really appreciate the fact that Nextcloud seems to integrate with other products pretty seamlessly and allows for extensibility that our product team can extend and improve functionality without a tremendous ramp-up time. We once used ownCloud in previous years, but they went the wrong way, and have found Nextcloud to be the right direction over time.

Slack

Slack has expanded functions and much better connection. Slack is heavily customizable whereas 3CX and Google Chat are standard across the board. To my knowledge 3CX and Google Chat do not have the thread function, expanded reactions function, group channels vs group messages, profile photos/titles for users, or customized viewing preferences

Return on Investment

Nextcloud

  • Reduced costs: Cheaper than hosted alternatives if you need a lot of space.
  • Professional impression on partners and clients (branding, security).
Joost Mulder | TrustRadius Reviewer

Slack

  • Slack has significantly improved team collaboration and communication, and as a result, a large number of users are now able to communicate more effectively.
  • It's easier to handle remote work with Slack because it's so simple to do so. On small projects, better communication and collaboration are essential.
  • When it comes to business environments, Slack is the best. Saving time by automating routine tasks is one benefit of the technology's existence.
