Excellent product combines most used collaboration product into a single entity

2017-08-21

Pros

Easy team management and collaboration.

Cons

Very few, not clear on transference of or data residency. It would be nice to be able to select region of data residency or restrict. Not sure if you can customise/rebrand to meet own internal marketing. To be honest I have not researched these elements in fine detail.

Collaboration tool for serious businesses.

Remote work and team management.

Pros

Circuit is an extremely efficient way for me to organize all of my inter-team communications in a single workspace. It allows me to work remotely very efficiently and manage projects and teamwork inside the company and with partners.

Cons

I wish you could delete old conversations. I archive and keep my conversations organized, but there are some that would be just better to delete.

Enjoy this app

2019-02-20

Circuit makes it very easy to share content with coworkers located in different states.

Pros

I like that I am able to access the software on my work laptop as well as my work iPhone.

Cons

I think that the way the chat notifications show up as a red circle (appears that you are missing a call) could be changed to differentiate between the two.

Circuit : making the new way of work possible with little effort

2019-06-11

Pros

It's easy to collect all relevant "streams" (e.g. mail; meeting requests and notes, phone calls, chats, etc.) into a single folder.

Cons

If you are depending on folder structure (folder within a folder) you'll be lost at first, but Circuit has an awesome search engine Circuit has more power and more impact when everyone uses it, so be ready to advocate the solution in your company and to have some use cases near.

An ideal tool for collaboration, helping me to work better with my dispersed sales force

2017-08-08

I have greater collaboration with my dispersed sales force and also my supplier

Pros

The ability to screenshare and ad hoc add other Circuit users to the conversation, truly an excellent collaboration tool.

Cons

noticed a slight drain on my mobile phone battery while Circuit is open but is manageable and not unexpected with any piece of software such as this

Circuit is my number 1 application for communication

2019-05-10

Pros

I use it also for all small and bigger projects I'm involved and the way everything is located in one tool with a very good search functionality makes my work much easier.

Cons

Personally I miss the possibility to put a read message back to unread. In the mean time I use other options to create something similar, but it is not completely the same.

I can do more when they collaborate with me.

Very innovative and useful collaboration tool

2018-06-13

Easier collaboration and information sharing helps in setting up meetings and increase productivity.

Pros

Platform independent high degree of collaboration. Use cases is possible in all industries.flexible licensing model

Cons

The fact that it has to be regulated by the telecom regulatories puts a restriction on selling the solution in certain countries. The franchise model is a bit expensive.

Circuit - easy to use

2018-12-04

For a better communication in the office or the outside. Like chat and groups that always keep the things we talk about.

Pros

Like others Circuit allows you a better mobility and integrations with the rest of the solutions that Unify offer.

Cons

I'm not sure, but the think I don't like about Circuit is that it's not "completely" free like other solutions like Rainbow

Good software for business meetings, if it works

2019-09-16

Pros

Easy to use software, many functionalities. Easy to share your screen or only an application with the customer.

Cons

In our company with firefox it doesn't work stable, most of the time you are not able to connect. Therefor you have to use Google chrome, but with this application it works well! Sometimes there are some connection problems nobody knows where they come from.

Circuit is an excellent product that is extremely useful for us here at Nimans.

2017-08-01

Pros

The ability to enhance teamwork, by bringing Voice, File Sharing, Video and much more into one easy to use platform across multiple devices.

Cons

The inability to delete conversations. Having an abundance of aged conversations in the left pane can be messy and could be organised much better with the ability to delete unwanted conversations.

Thanks for your review and feedback, Scott! You can always leave or mute conversations so they don`t show up in your stream anymore. What we see with users that are more and more active on Circuit is that old conversations move down the stack very quickly.

We are working to lift the limit to the number of conversations you can mute to >50.

2017-08-24

Pros

The ease of use and the functionality, not sure about the full features as i have only used the free trial version.

Cons

The Support, I think it was released to early without people actually being prepared for the product and when you ask its well you have to do the training.
