A good tool for collaboration

2019-05-16

Pros

It has great file management features, and having the ability to have notifications and leave comments on documents helps everyone.

Cons

It would be better if it had more functions or options with the calendar, as this is something we would use a lot. But overall this is a solid product and it allows us to work better as a team and with external people.

Splendid product with bundles of superb features

Overall I am having outstanding experience with this amazing product.

Pros

Apart from this it helps me to access all the documents and also to set permissions whether a particular person can view or edit the document or not is now completely under my control.

Cons

Each and every feature is mind blowing from managing files to customize dashboard according to my convenience.

Very positive. A great tool for collaborative work on bids and sharing developments with customers.

2017-05-03

Greater engagement with multifunctional teams. More effective bid development.

Pros

We use it for a wide range of tasks, from bid management through to customer engagement and sharing innovation.

Cons

There is room for development around Huddle's ability to directly import and export tasks and diary entries from other systems such as Outlook or Salesforce

Some major drawbacks....

2017-02-20

I am SWOTing Huddle as we are trialing the software for enterprise use. Some major flaws that are hard to ignore with a couple I consider "critical points of failure".

Pros

- lovely clean interface, very intuitive - able to set individual nested folder access permissions - able to add some custom fields to the tasks - tasks automatically appear in the calendar giving a easy visual of upcoming priorities - this is of course reliant on task entry including a due date. - version history restore is really neat and easy to navigate

Cons

Adding custom fields to the tasks to assist with filtering, but only allows you to filter on one field, e.g. by project. would be much better to filter (e.g.) by project and priority - this would allow to filter by "Particular project tasks that are High Priority". 6.

Intuitive interface and good support.

2019-05-10

Huddle is a simple tool in which its implementation has brought positive benefits to the organization improving performance in terms of time as well as productivity in general terms, offering a better customer service, and simplifying tasks based on internal collaboration between colleagues.

Pros

Huddle is a social collaboration tool that has a great technical support, its tools are very practical, you can work online and offline, it is easily integrated with Microsoft Office where you can use the same Huddle.

Cons

It is applicable to companies that have no regulations regarding security, however it is not a limitation of the whole but it must be taken into account, with respect to the management of documents in the browser is limited to the basics only.

Good Quality Document Collaboration System

2019-08-01

Pros

It allows multiple organizations to collaborate in one place, making document sharing and communication easy.

Cons

I also find the feature that allows you to move documents between folders to be overly complex, and somewhat unreliable.

2021-05-20

Intuitive and quick to set up. Requires very little user base training.

2017-06-12

True collaboration with clients (internal and external) and suppliers alike.

Pros

Excellent product in the collaboration software space, does everything quickly and effortlessly.

Cons

It is not linked to company corporate directories, meaning the access governance is left with the Workspace Managers - this is often not managed by them and results in poor access controls at a workspace level due to company leavers still having access.

Created a space for collaboration

2017-06-12

Pros

-Multiple users had real-time access to shared documents and could comment -Easy to orient new users -One location or "workspace" to access all the relevant materials and identify who was actively participating

Cons

-At the end of the project, we had to go into each folder to download the files- this ended up being a very easy process albeit manual.

Has the basic features

2017-05-16

Replaced with a better and cheaper product. Not used any more.

Pros

It was easy to see who created a file. Other than that, there were not many advantages that would make this product more useful than a Shared Drive

Cons

Hard to track changes and collaborate on content.

Smooth, easy and fast, but not enough for highly-regulated industries

2018-05-30

I would definitely recommend this software to companies that do not need to comply with regulatory bodies, but would advise companies that require regulatory compliance to look for something else.

Pros

Documents open within the browser, so looking through documents for specific information is quick and easy, and of course the search function enhances this even further.

Cons

Doesn't offer much more than basic document retention.

Highly recommended if you are looking for a simple online working environment

2011-07-25

I like the idea of the dashboard page - a snapshot of things that are time-sensitive

Pros

Easy to set up, collaborative working environment

Cons

The free package only allows for one workspace with 100 MB of storage. In addition, it does not keep track of document versions.

Not as seamless for document collaboration compared to SharePoint

2020-10-07

Overall, it's pretty good at what it does and perhaps one to consider if your company isn't neck deep in investing into Microsoft's ecosystem of products

Pros

The level of security offered helped more senior leaders feel more comfortable with assessing the tool. Easy to upload documents and files.

Cons

Lacks the collaboration flexibility of Microsoft's 365 suite of products.

Great tool for collaboration and project planning.

2019-01-30

I am fairly happy with it so far. Once we got it up and running the improvements we saw in our teamwork was clear. I would definitely recommend looking into it if you are on the market for something like this.

Pros

I also liked how simple it is to share files/folders between different teams.

Cons

It is still easy to use once you get the hang of it though.
