Overall Satisfaction with Socialcast

It is being used across the organization, though not among all departments. It allows employees working in different countries to connect on a single platform, on formal issues and projects, as well as informal discussions, and share project management files.
  • Socialcast offers project management tools, where you can upload files, and set up checklists right on the platform.
  • It allowed my team across different countries to convene in a single platform, where it was easier to follow the string of conversation rather than in an email chain.
  • It would be useful to have an integrated video app for video conferencing.
  • Definitely more organized project management and team collaboration.
  • Efficiency in carrying out tasks.
  • Creates a spirit of collaboration and friendliness among colleagues.
Socialcast is definitely a better communication platform than Skype, and offers more project management tools than Slack.
It would be best suited for a team of 3+ people that is looking to move away from email and keep all conversations and related files in a single place.
