Hibox

Collaboration support via chat, task sharing & video calls

4.25/5 (16 reviews)

Hibox overview

Hibox is primarily a collaboration platform that supports the workflows of business teams with private, online communications. Wrapped within a single lightweight app, Hibox begins with cloud-based signup before a registered user invites other contacts to join the account via email. This allows networks of colleagues to be created quickly, while using role-based preferences to designate administrators, managers, basic and external users.

Contacts can enjoy secured, internal instant chat capabilities where streams can be created for specific teams and projects, or company-wide announcements shared within the public room. Additionally, Hibox tethers task management tools that allow jobs and actions to be assigned to contacts from inside a chatroom, along with deadlines and to-do lists. Task time can then be tracked with a simple play/pause button, while an AI-powered personal assistant bot helps with delegating regular, repeated tasks by analyzing message patterns.

Communication histories are all recorded, making Hibox searchable and filterable when it comes to revisiting certain conversations within the original context. The encrypted app also fits neatly within an existing IT setup with integration options for popular cloud-based storage such as Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. General chat features are then enhanced with face-to-face video calling and conferencing, giving one-tap access to instant team meetings wherever and whenever required thanks to native smartphone app support.

Best Platform for Project Management

Review Source: Capterra

Originally, our team was trying to "collaborate" digitally by communicating and sharing documents via email and Outlook but this was a disaster. We then tried a couple of other popular project management tools suggested to us such as Trello and Wrike. Trello was disconnected and unintuitive for us. It didn¿t make much sense for our specific processes to create ¿boards¿. Also, the inability to chat made the collaboration process feel disconnected. We might as well have been using email without real-time communication. Hibox allowed us to divvy up our team into focused streams for different parts of the project and then assign tasks right in the chat streams without having to leave the stream or platform. It¿s easy to make chat actionable. We previously tried Slack as well, but it felt like a constantly crowded stream with no clear goal rather than a project management tool. It was easy to lose information and difficult to figure out exactly what everyone was assigned to. It¿s so clear in Hitbox. Each stream has its own task list where we can get a quick look at what's due for each of our projects and who is assigned to it. There is also a master task list and task calendar view that make deadlines and assignments clear. One of our favorite features for managing tasks for projects is subtasks. We use subtasks for any long term team tasks that multiple people will be working on. Each person gets assigned to different subtasks with separate due dates and times as needed and we can keep track of where we¿re all at with the different parts for a project. A huge perk is the ability to instantly video chat with our team right from the platform if we need to ditch chat and have a live discussion. You wouldn't believe the time not having to open three different platforms to work together saves! If you're going to implement a digital platform for better productivity, it should be everything you need and nothing you don't - Hitbox is just that! Hibox provides all the tools necessary for collaboration (group chat, task management, and video conferencing) without having to integrate three different platforms. It's easy to organize chat streams, track tasks, and plan projects. The calendar view helps us out with divvying up the workload and making sure we meet deadlines. The AI features help speed up work for all employees. Having the ability to instantly video chat from the platform helps keep us even more connected than ever! Again, having all this within the same platform is hugely helpful. The price is incredibly reasonable compared to the other tools we would need to sign up for to get the same features.

It's very ease of use, the features&functionality is all that my company needs but we faced a lot of problems in many browsers, the best browser to use is Opera (And I don't like it so much). Some problems that we faced: delay to delivery the messages, the system is a little bit slow then some competitors, the layout of the emoticons isn't so nice than competitors.To my team that had a previous experience with software, using Hibox was a lit bit frustrating. We are planning the change again.Cheaper than some competitors. User-friendly.
