"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
Where do I even begin? I have multiple emails, multiple Slack channels, a Skype account, online accounting, linkedin, dropbox, calendar, google drive... and so many more ALL in one place in an easily clickable app workspace. I don't have to have all of these apps open at the same time, and I get desktop notifications for each one in real time!
Station helps you find key information scattered across hundreds of apps thanks to a unified search nested in your browser. Whenever you need to access or share any document, task, and information, Station instantly resurfaces the most relevant results intelligently as you go about your work. No more switching through apps, tabs, or asking your co-workers. Station makes information actionable with Power-ups: check your team's latest edits and comments in Google Drive or join your next call instantly without opening your Calendar. You can customize Station to your workflow with tons of other views like pins, frequently visited pages, and more. We're currently working on collaborative features to help teams automatically organize all the knowledge they share across cloud services (like Google Drive), knowledge bases (Notion or Airtable), task managers, and more. Request access to our Beta and be among the first to test it.
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!
Hibox is a complete team collaboration platform that supports the workflows of business teams with a private, online communication platform. Get secured, internal instant chat capabilities where streams can be created for specific teams and projects, or use the public room for company wide information. Hibox tethers advanced task management tools that can be assigned to the appropriate team members, along with deadlines and to-do lists. Includes videoconferencing with task creation built in.
What I like the most about station is that you can have all those apps that you use daily for productivity, monitoring, communication or simply have everything organized and even click away between one app and another

The best thing about Station is the fact I can have all my favorite applications all in one place, it makes my life a heck of a lot easier and I can now operate more efficiently and be more constructive

Compared to the competitors starting to spring up, Station has the smoothest UI. I only have two apps open on my machine now; Chrome in order to google to the occasional thing and watch YouTube, and then Station to do EVERYTHING else I need to throughout my day.

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.
- Walid P.
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.

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.

|Everything is organized
|Easy to use
|There are some glitches for certain sites
|Rash or the page won’t load
|It was almost "fun" and a game-like to create tasks and then complete them
|What was also surprising was the search function was blazing fast, felt like it's a pretty underrated feature of Hibox
|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
|What we like most about Hibox is the speed of communication."
|Also, the inability to chat made the collaboration process feel disconnected
|We might as well have been using email without real-time communication
|Originally, our team was trying to "collaborate" digitally by communicating and sharing documents via email and Outlook but this was a disaster
|The right colum in the task board could be wider, or adjustable by user
|Sometimes it's hard to read the information when we have too much text on the details of the task."
