Pros

  • Integration with almost every app a business uses thus makes it easy to pull in data and information.
  • Chat and posts features increase communication flexibility
  • Facility to create teams on any basis such as Departments, projects, companies and workgroups offers flexibility in workflow.

Cons

  • The feature of audit trial, i.e. keeping a track of all the activities in a team- a log of who did what in the team and the time the task is done can add more value to the product. This features ensures accountability and makes things tack faster in the everyday business process.
  • A call feature connecting people over the platform right inside the team can make the communication process easy and quick.

Differentiators

The app considers the security of customer’s data seriously. All the data and information on this platform is, therefore, encrypted using the 256-bit encryption. The app does not allow direct access to the data outside of the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud and all the database queries are parameterized.
