Louis Carrillo

Our team has migrated to FLOCK for ease of use and for feature set capabilities which allow us to manage tasking and team communication as well as video conferencing most effectively

2018-04-25

In the final analysis , we believe Flock is a winner and we will be using Flock as our primary collaborative team communication tool for our office team tasking assignment, as well as for video chat .

Pros

We are able to manage team conversation which can be common or specific to users in the group, employ instant screen sharing , and one button touch for video call and chat participation.

Cons

Less ability at this time to control notifications from shared conversations as well as a non available capability to keep shared files private to 1 user.

Flock - easy-to-use solution for team collaboration.

2018-05-09

Pros

We've tried Skype as our team communication app, it was good, but faced with advertisements, and we kept on receiving spam from hacked accounts, no integration as well so Flock is a better option. 1. 5 integrations in Flock for their free plan. 2.

Cons

I like Skype's new redesign better than Flock's current UI. Their interface a bit too complicated for us.

Flock is a great app

2018-05-13

Pros

We used Flock as a messaging tool for the entire company.

Cons

Flock has a large learning curve, which for some people is not a good thing. If you can intuitively understand the new software, it's good, but some people will need help.

Flock is a simple productivity tool for organization that 'actually works'.

2018-03-13

Team communication was integrated and simplified.

Pros

Overall, it makes the team/organization super productive, by reducing internal emails exchanged and providing easy access to the right tools to get the things done.

Cons

In case some integrations are not available, the Flock developer-friendly guides gives structured information to create one for our favorite/custom applications.

Flock is a great tool for communication for a big team.

2018-06-09

Pros

If you are familiar with Google Hangouts then the interface for this program will look very familiar on the mobile app. For basic functions such as communicating with a team or an individual team member, this app is nearly flawless.

Cons

The main issue I had with the app was sometimes it failed to notify me of new messages. Also, although the app offers many different features they are a bit difficult to use.

It is a reasonably good platform to communicate with team. It is extremely fast and useful to use.

2018-06-26

Pros

Its far better than Slack as if I wanted to find some pervious data, I can easily go for search option and tailor it out..

Cons

I would suggest flock team to work on reactions of a particular message. For example, on a particular channel, I would like to say something funny or express my gratitude, if some one from the team likes my message, I would suggest few more emojis to be added to make it more happier to use it. 2.
