Pros

The directory is helpful, and the customer support is good. My favorite part about Realm is the annual conference.

KN

KATIE N.

Probably the best part might be the database end. It's pretty good at keeping all the information for our people, and creates a nice directory.

HN

Heather N.

Realm is simply the best solution available in a market without many well-integrated products available yet. Constant improvement will only make it better.

JS

Jeffrey S.

Pros

I use this software almost every hour and it's super easy to use. The fact you can share your screen with someone without needing to be in the call in my eyes is brilliant.

KG

Kieran G.

Great organizational opportunity to make a team of contact people per office/department. Love the ability to use other apps with it.

GV

Gino V.

It has been an amazing platform for all our educational needs. This is probably the best product that a university or school can invest in especially during this pandemic situation.

Cons

As a former IT/programmer this software is the worst... very frustrating to use... slow.

HN

Heather N.

I am constantly calling Realm to see if there is a solution to one problem or another, and every time I am basically told "we don't do that" and "we have no plans to do that.

HN

Heather N.

Sometimes confusing for users when it comes to privacy management and notifications.

AS

Amjad S.

Cons

It has bad connection when working remotely. With a team of 30 on one call, we were getting every other word in and it made meeting ineffective.

MS

Marissa S.

Threads can become confusing. Replies can get lost in larger messaging groups and conversations confused on the threads layout.

RB

Roddy B.

When video is being used and when a different background is used and when the person moves it looks very fake and weird.

Communicate w/ Your Teams

Reviewed a year ago

We use teams since we are Outlook users as well. It allows ease of communication internally whether through screen share or video calls.

Pros

The best part of this software is the open communication feature built into the Microsoft realm of products.

Cons

There is an ability to use teams to communicate internally but you must purchase the additional function to communicate externally as well.

It’s Teamwork Microsoft Style

Reviewed a year ago

Trending toward “less is more” NOTSOMUCH when we are talking humans. MORE HUMAN IS MORE and we push this idea like we are scared of our own shadow long enough we are bound to love team sports yesterday via Microsoft Teams today as well ... works for me! Live it! Love it. Breathe it. Yes it happened for us. Thank you [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. I’m pro-Teams.

Pros

Literally the best bytes your budget money can be spent on in the realm of interoffice communications, and I say this with confidence we have tried them all.

Cons

It was very cool that it reeked it Microsoft but very cool that so did the rest of the PC. It’s like ... politically correct already.

Best in the industry at what it does.

Reviewed 2 years ago

An amazing time saver, and overall project optimizer.

Pros

It is the best in the business realm at allowing, optimizing, and creating new methods for internal/external office communication. It allows for easy file transfers, document sharing, and quick chats to occur to keep time optimized.

Cons

It really only has a select use, and that use is very good (but niche'ed) within the business world.
