"Good Way for Companies to Communicate"

What do you like best?

The feature that I like most about Honey is that the messages or posts are professional and clean looking. Keeping things looking professional is a must for any service that my employer utilizes. I also really like that you don't have to have a social media account linked to Honey in order to use it - something that so many services request now-a-days in order to access their service or product. My co-workers and I are able to fully utilize Honey without having to connect it to our personal social media accounts - this helps to keep it professional. Another thing that I like about Honey is its search feature. Honey allows you to easily perform a search and retrieves organized and relevant results. This is important as it saves a lot of time.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I really dislike about Honey is that it automatically sends an email message each time something is posted. Since I am a part of a lot of different groups that are very active, I receive more email notifications in one day than I could ever need and it can be obnoxious. I don't need to be notified each time something is posted - I believe that it would be better to send one email notification a day for every group you are a part of or following and that the one email notification would contain any posts or updates from that 24 hour period. This would be more efficient and wouldn't bombard the user with hundreds of emails.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Honey for companies who want a new, innovative and professional way to communicate with employees in an organized manner. We have found that Honey keeps employees more engaged and up to date on news and events. We use Honey internally and have begun testing Honey externally and the response has been good. People are paying more attention. Honey provides an efficient means to communicate.

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

Honey allows my co-workers and I to follow important topics or groups in an organized and professional manner. Honey is quickly going to replace long company wide email threads or conversations. Most of the time, employees ignore long email threads after the first few emails. I have found that when using Honey, more people are reading and paying attention to conversations because it is easier to view and even search for posts that are relevant. This is also beneficial for my employer as it keeps employees engaged and up to date on what is going on as well as informed about what we really need to be aware of as far as company news and information.

"Important communication tool for growing offices"

What do you like best?

When our company implemented Honey as our enterprise social network, it replaced a company-wide "Off-Topic" email list that was inundating people's inboxes. Honey is great as it offers a place to share relevant (or irrelevant) news and classifieds-style postings, plus offers a way to quickly crowdsource without spamming 500+ inboxes. Our HR and employee development teams also post important company updates on Honey so it's a good place to start if you're looking for info related to benefits, office closings, etc.

What do you dislike?

I think the search function on Honey is, on the whole, miserably flawed. If I'm trying to find an old post, I'm rarely able to track it down by a simple search and instead often have to try to remember the poster and go to their profile to access their post history, then scroll through their posts in order to track it down. I also find it very hard to find people using the "People" page. At a large company, you may need to find someone whose name you can't remember, and Honey should be the go-to resource for that. There should definitely be an alphabet slider so that you can go to the letter of the person's name you're searching for instead of having to scroll through hundreds of names to find the person you're looking for.

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

As previously mentioned, before Honey our company relied on a company-wide email list to source and relay information, share news/articles, etc. As the company grew, inboxes were inundated with emails asking for dog walkers or doctor recommendations or sharing things found on the web. Honey offers an unobtrusive place to post and find all of this information--and to search past posts in case you have a question that may have been asked in the past. For medium to large-sized companies that have this type of sharing, collaborative culture, I think a product like Honey is indispensable.

Thanks for letting us know!

"Community that feels effortless."

What do you like best?

Posting is effortless, and even "light" posts result in a polished, compelling presentation. Links and previews are rich and engaging. Search results are intuitive and well-organized. Tags and group subscriptions work exactly as expected, and zero technology footprint is required.

What do you dislike?

Not necessarily a dislike, but I can't post simultaneously to Honey and to public social networks. This may be a deliberate configuration of our instance, but there are times when it would be helpful to do both. Also no advanced search.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Note that Honey was originally incubated within Huge (before my time) but now functions as a separate company.

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

Honey is used as our private social network, for both work-related requests / announcements and also for fun and informative information-sharing. Honey is generally used for timely posts, with a separate knowledge repository for long-term archival. Adoption is widespread, with no significant complaints about the platform.

"Honey Review"

What do you like best?

This service is very easy to use. I love that it keeps me up to date with what is happening and what is going on with colleagues. It also has plenty of great features and the ability to upload photos, videos and more. It's basically like an internal Facebook community. You also can have intensification notifications sent to your email which is awesome so you don't have to keep checking the website throughout the day.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about this product. If there were to ever be an issue, then customer service would be on it as soon as possible. They are always very quick and eager to help with anything that may come up at all regarding Honey and its capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would take the time to full test out all of its capabilities. We have used it for many activities/games as well within our company.

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

This product helps us all to better communicate with one another. We are able to share articles, news, events, interests and more with one another. This tool is also a very nice way to get to know new employees and to be able to match a face to a name with the profile photos. This product also brings departments together which is great.

"New Customer and Loving It"

What do you like best?

Their support has been amazing. We are building the site now and it's been such a wonderful experience. My favorite feature is the recap emails that our staff can receive so they never miss anything that is posted.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far, it's been such a great tool for our company to have. It's a system that allows us to be fun AND functional.

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

We have a current company intranet but it's not exciting, very basic, so we wanted to create a place where people would be excited to sign on and see what's happening within our company.

"We use Honey for internal communications and announcements"

What do you like best?

I like that you can create groups in Honey for different topics, and people can follow what interests them the most or is most relevant to their work.

What do you dislike?

Where do I even begin? There are so many things I dislike. It's buggy, links often don't work or are broken. Formatting gets broken or erased, and it drives me nuts that it sends emails for every post when the whole point is to alleviate your inbox from a barrage of messages. I really hate this tool. Hate is a strong word, but I'm definitely not a fan. It's clunky, and unfortunately, doesn't solve the problem of getting people to read everything. Instead people miss certain announcements because they haven't joined a Honey group, or weren't invited. It's a bit of a mess.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would strongly urge you to consider other software...like Slack. Honey is clunky and has a plethora of bugs.

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

We wanted a tool that would take the place of our internal "forum" email threads. As the company grew, it was not feasible to continue sending mass emails to everyone--especially when the info was perhaps not always relevant to the colleague. It also was supposed to create more specific groups, so people would actually read the important info. The emails weren't getting read, so the idea was that if it was in a relevant space, like Honey, people would actually read it.

"Lacking in Areas"

What do you like best?

The interface is easy to use and quickly understand. It's great that it connects people from other agencies, and even other countries, allowing us to learn and communicate with new cultures and different areas of work.

What do you dislike?

Not as widespread throughout company, a lot of people don't use it. There doesn't seem to be a unique offering that would incentive people to use it more. Unfortunately, I don't notice many people from the US office who use it, so this may be why I feel this way. I also don't think the NY office receives much communication from higher ups through it, we still use email for that. We already have email and instant messages to communicate with my team, so I wouldn't ever use it for small scale comunnication.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Join or create groups for your specific office.

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

Lack of internal communication.

"Honey has been great"

What do you like best?

The ability to easily integrate GIFs makes it easy to make posts more dynamic and fun to read. Also love the likes & comments integration.

What do you dislike?

Platform clunkiness. When adding images, there are certain places you cant click or you'll be taken out. Also, when writing something long - every time an image is added, you're taken to the top of the page..which is annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider how you share information with your colleagues.

E-mail is almost never the most dynamic - and Honey gives you a better option.

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

We now have an easy-to-use and easy-to-share platform to display all of our agency news.

As someone who does a lot of the culture things in the office, this platform greatly benefits me in being able to share events with colleagues and know who read, liked or commented on it.

"Robust and beautifully designed"

What do you like best?

I used Honey at a large company. It was a great way to have niche conversations and create groups around certain interests, making a very large company feel small and friendly. As far as daily use, it didn't get in the way of being productive. I appreciated separating strictly work conversations from social or slightly off topic conversations. I also love the design — it's sleek and gets updated regularly, so it always feels fresh.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike was the way the categories or topics were displayed. I found it hard to find and follow ones that I was interested in, if I didn't already know they exist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think Honey works best with someone managing the topics.

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

Recognizing the importance and relevance of social conversations, while minimizing noise on other work channels such as Slack or email.

"Like the idea, but faded quickly"

What do you like best?

it was best when working on pitched, we could include videos or articles and easily share it out with everyone working on the pitch. I liked that it sent an email to let you know there was an update.

What do you dislike?

you had to sign into it to use. If there was a way it was integrated into outlook or lync or something it may have made more sense to use more often. I think it died quickly because no one got full training on it and there weren't a lot of applicable uses for it besides pitches.

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

Trying to find the best platform for our client's message. That is something we receive from the networks and data teams. The best way to receive that information is through excel.

"Great Use for Business Networking"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use with a very sleek layout

What do you dislike?

Not enough people use it/contribute, but that goes beyond the fact that people know about it, it's the time and effort we/they lack.

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

I've realize that even across all the different brands colleagues work on, we still encounter similar issues that can be resolved just by communicating with one another. This network has opened up the opportunity to do so.

"A great way to connect and get to know coworkers"

What do you like best?

I think Honey is a great resource because it's so user friendly. Being new to the agency, it was a great way for me to familiarize myself with new faces in the office.

What do you dislike?

I think you should be mandated to fill out your profile, some of my coworkers have not filled theirs out and just have their photo, and I think that it should be mandatory.

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

Our social media team is able to post the thought leadership, trend and news articles that we discuss every week to share with the whole agency. I also find info on interesting seminars, events, resources etc.

"Client Director, Strategy"

What do you like best?

Ability to share work from coworkers regardless of office/client.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't naturally fall in to my ecosystem. More specifically, the work day is filled with the use of so many other apps/resources adding one more to the mix makes it difficult for it to fall within a natural flow of the day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Promote usage on Apps more actively.

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

Honey has helped me gather insights from peers that have provided different POV on the similar media planning or buying campaigns.

"Using Honey for Sharing Work Documents"

What do you like best?

I like that you are able to share documents with coworkers using an organized platform.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you receive emails each week with new Honey members. I'm sure there is a feature for turning it off.

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

Honey provides an easily accessible platform for workers to share work, which we did not previously have. The benefits of this are that we are able to see who contributes what.

"Honey is user friendly and a great resource "

What do you like best?

I like being able to share resources and insights with people across the company in different agencies.

What do you dislike?

This is an excellent tool to use if you need help sharing resources with many people at once and are looking for collaboration.

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

We use Honey to share plans and presentations that we are currently working on with other teams. It helps us stay organized and well connected.

Business problems - we use Honey to ask general questions, help, find participants for user research.

Benefits - I've been able to cast a wide net in the office, and also been able to have personal tasks fulfilled (find a subletter, dogsitter, etc.)
