Overall Satisfaction with Hive

We transitioned to Hive this year as a project management tool to replace our previous provider. We needed a platform that offered a full-featured project management tool, editable request forms and a robust proofing and approval environment. Hive has all the features and more. We are using it as a department-wide hub for planning and production. It has centralized several aspects of our business that had previously been siloed from one another.
  • Project management - supports several views (Kanban, Gantt, list, etc.).
  • Editable request forms.
  • Very robust proofing and review environment - handles video as well.
  • Great communication features for updates and collaboration.
  • Client management process takes a little getting used to.
  • Cannot attach multiple files to a project request.
  • Mobile app is just not there (yet).
  • It has been a relatively easy process to adapt our workflow to Hive on a tight deadline.
  • We are able to consolidate multiple workflows into one unified system.
  • The cost is much less than our previous (and less-featured) provider.
So far Hive is the total package for our needs. Offering request forms and proofing/approval out of the box without third party integrations has been a huge upgrade for us along with incredibly reasonable pricing. The support for onboarding has been fantastic and we haven't even explored the app integrations possible yet. Haven't had the need. The other platforms are good at project/task management but just don't have as many features.
Our CSR is easily accessible and they have support built into the app itself. They also have a pretty robust support site. We also took advantage of the free trial and learned so much by putting Hive through the paces and figuring out the best way to mold it to our needs.

Yes

Are you happy with Hive's feature set?

Yes

Did Hive live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Hive go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Hive again?

Yes

Hive will fit right in to any workflow that manages multiple projects. It's also a great fit for collaboration on a per-project basis as external users can collaborate with paid users. Across a very large team it would take more planning on how to fit multiple workflows and groups into the workspace but it can be done.
