Likelihood to Recommend

Nextcloud

Nextcloud is well suited in any collaboration scenario where users wants to share comments and resources as well as organize events or work together.
It is also very well suited for non-profit organizations as it is free to use and very simple even for non-tech users.
I can't imagine scenarios where it might not be appropriate as running requirements are minimal (php, mysql) so even a single user could find benefit to use it as an alternative for basic icloud or gmail use (files with desktop and mobile clients, calendar and address book).

Socialcast has been a great tool for FactSet. I would recommend it to any firm looking for an easy-to-use tool to centralize communication and collaborate on a global scale.

Pros

Nextcloud

  • File sharing (internal, public or federated).
  • One software, many activities (files, address book, calendar, chat, edit, email) ...
  • Groupware, sharing between users or groups is really easy and finely controlled.
  • Integrations and many apps.

  • Socialcast has an exceptional user experience. With very few idiosyncrasies, it works well on every platform I've tried.
  • The platform has such a high level of ease of use, it becomes somewhat addicting.
  • Social analytics are superb.
  • The platform is highly intuitive and requires zero training or coaching in order for network members to become productive with it.
  • It's extremely reliable. Only once in 4 years, was the product not available, and that was only for about a half-hour. In that half-hour, we realized how dependent we were on it. (Very.)
  • The multi-device and deployment options are excellent. On-premise, Private Cloud, and Multi-tenant SaaS all available.
  • The mobile apps for iPhone, tablets, and Android render well with a beautiful UI/UX. The desktop AIR app is equally highly usable.

Cons

Nextcloud

  • Merge talk and file client apps on mobile devices.
Joseph Costa | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware Socialcast (discontinued)

  • The software is a little bit pricey because it is charged by user/month and depending on the deployment method.
  • For companies with a lot of workers the price can increase significantly.
  • The mobile app usability and notifications are poor. Need to be improved.
  • If there were more administrative features available the product would be improved

Beyond the value FactSet derives from using the platform, Socialcast (the firm) has been a good partner to FactSet. We've experienced very little downtime with the service and they have been responsive and fair with enhancement requests and questions

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.

Excellent support; of course not perfect. :-)

Alternatives Considered

Nextcloud

Even excluding the budget and privacy concerns, we selected Nextcloud for its simplicity of use and the UI is very clear.
It just does what it is supposed to do.
  • No license.
  • Much, much ease of use.
  • Not opening several windows.
  • No un-useful services.
  • No automatic update.
  • Control over data.
  • Open-source software.
  • Integrations.

Socialcast is great for collaboration & light project management, but anything complex doesn't work well.

Using it as an email notification curator works nice for us.

Return on Investment

Nextcloud

  • We do not spend money on software license (unlike Office 365).
  • Very simple maintenance and upgrading.
  • Very simple backup and restore.

  • Definitely more organized project management and team collaboration.
  • Efficiency in carrying out tasks.
  • Creates a spirit of collaboration and friendliness among colleagues.
