"Source Control made easy"

What do you like best?

E-marks, review trails, peer audits and bugs following are a portion of the components that have helped us in monitoring the survey procedure and guaranteeing the quality for code advancement. The capacity for encourages fulfills my interest and meddling nature. Easy mix with dev devices and QA is an immense in addition to. This has speeded up our procedure while as yet keeping up the QC.

What do you dislike?

Its bit untidy to keep up without a CDN as well, with its daemons. Also, its somewhat pricy - yet quality and components astute, it is one of the best source administration apparatuses in the business sector. The rest things were fine and is useful with the exception of the absence of instructional exercises which here and there lead to time wastage for determining an extremely basic issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

the greatest advantage what Collaborator brought me out is this item permits me handle different kind of ventures notwithstanding their many-sided quality and introduction (advancement/relocation/non standard administration demands/basic undertakings and so forth) that make this application one of the best venture administration device available. It has filled the hole for variant control, code reviewing, and unit testing.

"Easy to get started"

What do you like best?

The review area for source controlled files was easy to add comments to different sections of the code. I also liked the way it showed the diffrences.

What do you dislike?

The main web interface is pretty dated looking and needs to be freshen up to look more modern.

"Code Management Tool"

What do you like best?

It's a great tool for code development and testing. We can easily review our other team members' code on a transparent platform. The best feature for me is that it replaces the yes/no GitHub pull request by an iterative workflow which really enhanced our capability to catch bugs quickly. It is also quite customizable.

What do you dislike?

Integrating Collaborator with the SCM took a lot of time. They do provide a manual for the same, but it is not very explanatory.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's one of the best code review management tools in the market. The initial setup might be a bit of an issue, but it's helpful in the long run.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are making a comprehensive web application for an e-commerce platform. Collaborator helped us in the code review process and tracking issues.

"The Most Comprehensive Peer Review Tool"

What do you like best?

I liked the integration with multiple SCMs like Git, Perforce, Subversion. Also review creation and participation can be made easy using plugins found in the community, regardless of IDE, or the types of files one want to review.

What do you dislike?

I found many turn off features in Collaborator which makes it an awful software in my opinion. It takes an hour to upload a changelist of a few hundred small text files. The UI is pathetic. The color scheme is distracting. There is no syntax highlighting. I found many other problems with the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Collaborator for my dev-team to help us coordinate and do code reviews. Absolutely no benefits. I'll switch to more capable software.

"Best for reviewing documents (tech pubs). Not so great for source code"

What do you like best?

Being able to review office documents, marking which point of the document each comment refers to, and with a nice visual diff.

What do you dislike?

Compared to say github, it's slow and doesn't allow fluid communication. Comments can't be formatted with markdown AFAIK. The client is buggy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking to review Word documents and such, this may be the right tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improve source code quality via peer review. Collaboration and review of technical publications.

"It's easy for new users to start a review"

What do you like best?

It enables concurrent reviews in real time and supports global teams.

What do you dislike?

Performance for a large review team and large documents is not ideal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduce review time by eliminating manual review process and review result compilation.

Enable review participants to complete the review anywhere.

Reduce review time by sharing review results at real time - reduce time-wasted on documenting duplicate findings.

"Love It. Great tool for Code Review."

What do you like best?

Great side-by-side diff view. It's great for easily tracking defects on a file, and seeing all versions of the file that have been uploaded.

What do you dislike?

The UI is a little dated. Ironically, it looked better in older versions, but their most recent UI overhaul made things look very grey, bland, and boring.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code reviews before every single submit. This is immeasurably valuable.

"We use code collaborator for reviewing code and other design artifacts"

What do you like best?

Code collaborator makes it easy to diff code to find what has been changed, and it is easy to comment on these code changes.

What do you dislike?

Uploading changed source code files must be done in a specific order for the tool to show code differences correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code collaborator allows us to peer review code changes so that errors can be detected early on in the development process. Catching bugs or errors in code during review has saved time that would be required in debugging once the issue surfaced through testing.
