Review Of Huddle

What do you like best?

The aspect I like most is the ease of sharing. the platform allows me share documents and folders with colleagues however it also allows me to assign to certain people what they can or can't view and can or can't edit.

What do you dislike?

The aspect I dislike is the interface. it's not that I really dislike it it's just I feel this is an area it can improve on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely choose huddle as it is a fantastic platform for file sharing.

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

The benefits I have realised is the ease of us as a company being able to share files between or European and American offices. This allows us to upload and let another colleague deal with a file and we can use it when it is ready rather than pinging emails back and forth.

Pleasant and Efficient Experience

What do you like best?

I enjoy being able to immediately change the status of a project that's been assigned on Huddle as well as being able to quickly upload files.

What do you dislike?

The user interface seems very busy at times; on some pages, I must scroll down through hundreds of lines of open projects to find the one I'm looking for, and the amount of text/data that I must attempt to cognitively process is overwhelming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have cross-functional teams working across the world on the same projects, I highly recommend Huddle as a way of keeping track of everything rather than relying on email, phone calls, or other hard-to-track methods.

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

I work with a cross-functional team of writers, editors, medical reviewers, copyeditors, and web designers working in different parts of the world who all contribute to the same pool of articles at different points in the editorial process, and Huddle makes it incredibly easy to feel like we're all working in the same office with the ability to all see the same projects at the same time in real time.

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

All of the versions, whenever you need them

What do you like best?

The version control aspect means you never lose a previous version of a document you've worked on. The search function is also excellent. When you have a lot of workspaces in an organisation, it can be tricky finding the right workspace your file is in, but the ability to search all of your workspaces means that this is never an issues.

What do you dislike?

The fact that you can't amend a version when needed, like for instance if you accidentally save a copy of the document you didn't need. Even though you can delete the version, the version numbering will not reset. As we use Huddle for our Controlled Documents, it would be good to have this kind of functionality.

And although it has a "Task" function, it takes a lot of effort to update tasks. There are better task management software on the market.

The ability to edit documents online using Office Online is only ok, but this will improve as Microsoft improve the functionalities of their online product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's like Dropbox, only better because you can never lose a copy of you document. Someone saves over your file? No problem, just restore the last version! Want to restrict access to a folder to read-only? It only takes 2 clicks.

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

Sharing documents throughout the organisations, with our other offices and with our clients and subcontractors is easy. Everyone automatically has access to the correct version and it's secure.

Great tool for collaboration

What do you like best?

This software is great for collaboration. It is easy to share files and to see who has contributed to the file. It also saves all versions of the document so that you don't have to be confused as to the most recent version.

What do you dislike?

As this software automatically updates your document to the most current version, you cannot have coworkers edit simultaneously.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Huddle is very user friendly and intuitive to use. However, it will take an up front investment of time to set up the system. For instance, if you decide to use this system to store files, you will need to take time at the beginning to establish a naming convention for easier filing. You can also assign specific people access to a certain folder or document, and those rules would need to be established before rolling the system out.

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

It has allowed a faster turn around time to collaborate and development documents. We use this frequently to share documents across different offices. It has a feature where you can sign different tasks to an individual and they will be notified of their task. Huddle will also send reminders when a task needs to be completed. If you are the document owner, you will also be notified whenever there have been changes or progress made so that you can see everything in real time.

Pretty good collaboration software...

What do you like best?

Huddle makes it easy to collaborate with coworkers by reducing endless email chains and keeping projects focused. The sharing feature lets multiple people work on the same project in one central space. It's online, so it's always available.

What do you dislike?

The interface is kind of annoying. There always seemed to be changes, but usually in the realm of taking away features that I actually used. Some of my coworkers who didn't have the app didn't always have access to my messages. Not really Huddle's fault, but certainly something to consider if this would be your primary method of project management.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Worth checking out, especially for a small - medium sized businesses. I prefer other software, and you might be able to just use Google docs. But it's worth looking into!

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

Huddle works great with sharing all the information (and changes) for projects. It stores all the uploaded documents, so there's the official record and paper trail. But everyone can just work off the latest version. Don't let stuff get lost in your email inbox; keep everything you need for a project in one place.
