Overall Satisfaction with MangoApps

It's used as a way for employees to communicate in an informal manner, using groups for staff members to interact in ways that may not usually be able to do as we have outlets all over the UK and Ireland. We also use it for internal comms, to distribute sales figures and for D&I groups, such as Pride and BAME
  • The collabs let people meet across the business informally
  • The gamification encourages staff to use the system
  • Customisation available to suit the businesses colour scheme
  • The messaging system is quite new and doesn't always clear down when read
  • The mentions tab can get very busy if you're added to groups
  • Lots of customisation can make it overwhelming when editing
  • The collaborative groups
  • The ability to share internal updates and files
  • Gamification
  • Users can connect from all over the business, especially useful when working from home
  • A friendly informal communication method outside of teams/slack/emails
  • A way to communicate events to the whole business
I was not involved in the buying process but have working with Moodle in previous workplaces which had some similar functionality, lots of options, but wasn't quite as slick looking. MangoApps can be customised to looks like clean and easy to read for users and the mobile app is useful as many of the staff are in store or travelling around a lot, so a mobile first build is helpful!

Do you think MangoApps delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

The ability to create optional interest groups for users to join if they like is a great way brings users together, and promote group meet ups and events. The polls ability is always great for taking a quick check of people's availability, we've used it to gauge interest in events and dates. One thing that could be improved is that there is both a messaging and an instant message functionality which seems a little redundant having users being able to message you from different places in separate inboxes, however this may be due to our set up.
