The virtual assistant

I use Hibox most of the time to set up virtual meetings whit my colleagues. It is useful because we have all the Docs and reports in the same platform.

Pros

Hibox is a task organizer that helps you stay in contact with the teamwork. You can upload documents, assign functions, make virtual meetings and it has its own chat. What i like the most is Hibot!, an assistant that reminds you what you have pending.

Cons

You have to buy the full plan to get a decent support.

Perfect Communication Tool for My Team

The problem we solved was a clutter of communication from different sources leading to things not getting done on time or done at all. We've all benefitted from the freeing up of time Hibox provided so we could dedicate more time to the actual work.

Pros

In-line task management was the clincher. While discussing a project we were able to create and assign tasks, or simply highlight a bit of text and turn that into a task. When those tasks are completed I get notified. Sounds simple, but Slack doesn't have this. The amount of time it saved was incredible. The onboarding process was intuitive and took very little time. To this day we've never had to contact their support team. We recently started adding our clients to Hibox as well. This has streamlined the client onboarding experience. We have yet to hear anything but positive comments from clients that we've onboarded this way.

Cons

There's very little to dislike, but if I have to nit-pick I'd say that they could use more emojis.

Reasons for Choosing Hibox

Mainly ease of use and Hibox having a better user interface. Far more intuitive that the others we used and it has a lot of hidden features that have proved quite useful.

Reasons for Switching to Hibox

We needed one centralized location to collaborate rather than keeping multiple apps open and having to go back and figure out where files and information were.

Good but not enough!

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.

Pros

Cheaper than some competitors. User-friendly.

Cons

Delay in delivering messages. Some bugs using Google Chrome. The layout of emoticons not so nice.

Great for team collaboration and delegation.

We are solving the business problem of a distributed team with similar goals, we can all connect and communicate in one large platform, and we can store information on the platform for later use.

Pros

It's great how easy it is to communicate online about the topic of the day and to progress tasks that lead to the success of our overall business objectives. I also like that we can collaborate in streams and then for slightly more in-depth topics we can communicate within the DM system.

Cons

We don't see any cons with Hibox, it's a great place to collaborate and communicate with the team.

Reasons for Choosing Hibox

Really it was the ability to delegate tasks and collaborate and communicate seamlessly under one roof with many different rooms.

Reasons for Switching to Hibox

The cost was a key driver for the switch, Hibox is more cost-effective.

Best Platform for Project Management

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!

Pros

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.

Cons

Previously we were using Google Calendars to plan projects which it does not sync with but now we've realized that having our projects planned as tasks assigned to individual users already within the calendar in Hitbox is actually much more actionable. As with any platform, there is a learning curve but it's so much easier with Hitbox because there's one login- not three like with Slack/Asana/Skype for the same features. The interface, as a result, is simple and intuitive because it's already built to work together.
