Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Blink reviews

This keeps ALLLL of our employees together in one place with all the updates in our company. Where we can share and chat with each other. It also is great to have all of our documents needed to HR and safety if someone needs to fill out a report or find info. This is all especially helpful during and after COVID and working remote.

- Lydia M.

Using Blink has revolutionised how we have both communicated with our staff and more crucially how they communicate with us. We have been able to get a consistent message out, instantly, which is something we've never achieved before. However being able to receive feedback from all members of staff has brought a new dimension to our staff relationships

- Nathan W.

This tool is very useful, and I'm using it every day - even every minute - to share information with my team, or other people of my company. The global feed and the "history" allow also to don't miss information.

Google Chat reviews

This replacement for Hangout and Allo is sub par at best. I can't manually delete messages like I can with any other app. I also have to manually open each image one at a time to both send and view instead of selecting multiple to upload or swiping between images that were sent. This feels like a junior ancillary project from Google instead of a well fleshed out and developed app. It's predecessors we're superior. That being said, I do like the ability to multi emoji react to a message.

Nice update for Google Hangouts which is going away at any time. Hangout's used to be nearly an all in one for communication, but Google stripped a lot of the functionality for no particular other than they were introducing other apps that ended up dying on the vine. This is the replacement. Fairly basic, functional and the UI is slightly better than Hangout's. I hope Google continues to work with it instead of letting it go after 6-12 months. Right now I like it.

- Rob W

Again, updates have fixed nothing about this terrible app. Stay away from this if you have any other alternatives. Very buggy and dropped notifications. Unable to go direct video call in app, requires a separate app. Too much friction. Unable to open URLs in a separate browser, links open up in the app, which is a dumb idea.

Pros & cons

Blink

Pros
The level of communication has increased
Blink has been a great tool for people to share their experiences without having to send a company wide email
We seen great feedback in terms of engagement and overall the front line workers now express themselves which we would never seen or shown the Leadership team
Great interaction with majority of the workforce who are not desk based."

Cons
One of the biggest barriers in our line of work, and from team to team within our organization, is a lack of communication, which can lead to assumptions
Every time you hit the return button on the PC it sends that as a blink when actually it might be you starting a new paragraph
Other than this minor issue I don't have anything too negative to say
Lack of integration with gtools suite (email/agenda) in both direction."

Google Chat

Pros
Create internal/operational efficiencies
Enhance decision making
Improve business process agility.

Cons
Text boxes have an aggravating way of resizing itself
Inability to dock the conversation list
Conversations can jump around quite often.
