Hive also integrates with over 100 popular tools, like Google Apps, Salesforce and Slack. It also supports integrations for files from Box, Google Drive and Dropbox. It truly creates a hub for teamwork.

Pros: - HiveQL translates SQL like queries into map reduce jobs.It supports custom map reduce scripts to plugged in. - Hive leverages the disk in the case of processing large data and is not limited by physical memory of any one machine - Hive is extensible with UDFs. For any common patterns you can quickly write your own function set and it can be leveraged by everyone. - I like the feature of customizing it

Cons: - Not a great customer support - The way we currently have it implemented is quite slow, but I believe that's more of our implementation than the normal usage - Joining even tends to be slow - Use Hive for analytical work loads. Write once and read many scenarios. Do not prefer updates and deletes.

Pros: The best part about Hive is how you can connect different tools my team and I are already using to it - like Dropbox.

Cons: It is a bit pricey for the functionality, but definitely the best solution to integrate a number of different business tools that we are already using.

Pros: * Ability to view work by project, but team members all in one view, and then filter tasks to everything assigned to me across multiple projects
* Chat
* Responsiveness of customer service team via in app Intercom

Cons: * Threaded chat would be nice. This was recently added to Slack, but Workplace by Facebook does it even better
* Filter out actions that have not hit their start date yet, AND tasks that have an unmet dependency. Goal is to focus attention toward work which can be done now, and minimize extra human manual filtering.
* Needs FILTER BY DATE COMPLETED: We're most interested in seeing this available on the "My team" view, but could also make sense elsewhere. While we can filter status view by assignees, projects and status complete, just need this additional ability
* Should be a way to AUTOMATICALLY MOVE URGENT ACTIONS TO TOP: Automatically sort tasks marked "urgent" to top of each respective status list when "Sort Type" "Sort by Priority" has been selected in the project navigator so users don't have to hunt them down and pull them up.

Overall: Hive brings our entire team into one collaborative workspace, allowing us to replace most emails with chat & task management. Samepage.io is also worth reviewing - haven't tried it but seems to also have a strong feature set at a similar or lower price, and includes video chat.

Hive absolutely killer. You can drag and drop the interface to make your own perfect PM software.

Pros: I like how customizable it is. You can change almost literally anything from the interface to adding/removing functionality.

Cons: I don't like the lack of integrations that exist though I do believe they are working on integrating a few.

Comments: This software is really cool if you want to automate things in your house such as your heating and lighting where you can use sensors for when you walk into your house they will turn the lights on automatically. The app they offer is really easy to use and very straight forward. The downside is that sometimes it lags so if a sensor goes off it does not turn the lights on right away. In summary, the idea is really good and the execution is good but the reliability needs to be worked on as it does not always work.

Pros: Good design idea and easy to use

Cons: Not very reliable yet as it sometimes fails to work as expected, looks like they have some bugs to sort out

Comments: Being a small salon Owner I had spent a lot of time finding an effective and affordable solution. I had never heard of Hive before until they called me at work. The sales person on the phone quickly pointed out its Key benefits i.e. booking, marketing, customer records and EPOS software. Then instead of offering me a trial he offered to give me an online demo on a Monday morning. It only took 15 minutes but I knew how the software worked. Very easy to use and does everything that my salon needs to manage and grow.

Comments: Ok so I used this cloud based service and it was great at first i was skeptical but it turned out to be great. I originally was going for this other service they had a $2000+ upfront fee and $269.99 monthly usage fee and I was a new business owner so didn't really want to pay that much then I found Hive which was cheaper by thousands of dollars and saved me a good $1000+ and it has been great been using for about the last few days and my customers love this service and love how smooth and quick it is for them and it is for me. I would totally recommend this service for new business owners or even professional business owners.

Comments: Hi Guys,

I'm a beauty therapist in Kerry and our salon uses Hive Salon Software. I thought it would be difficult for all our staff members to get used to it but its so simple, just like using a Smartphone! The diary feature is excellent for making fast bookings and has saved us lots of time to work on other areas such as marketing. They gave us a free online booking tool for our salon Facebook page and website which has really increased sales for us as customers tend to use this service after salon hours, there booking pops straight into our diary. The reports feature is also interesting as it enables our manager to view sales, staff performance and top selling treatments. The main advantage we find using Hive is the price. We use the Silver Price Plan which is ¿69.99 a month and we can use the whole 13 features. All in all this has worked very smoothly for us so far and I would recommend it to anyone in the hair and beauty industry.
