Pros: 1. Skarpline is extremely easy to use. You can easily login and start using it right away.
2. Folders. Being able to store files and collaborate with team members inside of the folder and/or files.
3. Focus Mode. Really cool feature that shuts off notifications and puts you in the mindset of focusing on your work.
4. Chat. The ability to chat on folders, files, photos, and even web articles is extremely handy and useful. I love that it's integrated into everything.

Cons: 1. No mobile app. It's best used as a web app on a desktop computer. I would love to have the ability to use this on an iPhone.

Overall: We have been using Skarpline as our main team communication app for almost a year. Since our first use, we have been extremely happy with our experience. Skarpline has features that other team communication web apps don't offer, and that's what got our attention. The simplicity of the UI and the seamless integration of chat within all the features makes it perfect for a technology startup like us. At Bourge Design, we use it on a daily basis for cross company collaboration and in-house project collaboration among team members. Overall, Skarpline is a great web app that ties & simplifies everything into a singular location.

Pros: Incredibly user friendly and intuitive. We also tested Slack, but were mildly overwhelmed with the platform.
Excellent value for money and pricing
Internal and External Team/Contacts within 1 platform
File/Folder/App sharing is simple

Cons: No mobile platform yet. After speaking with support I was informed a release is coming soon.

Overall: Our company has 45 employees but uses multiple platforms for communication including email, SMS, Skype for Business, Office365 Sharepoint, amongst others. We are looking for a streamlined solution to allow us to communicate and collaborate more efficiently with a clear paper trail.

Pros: Communication is difficult, no matter what business you're in. Skarpline helps our teams stay connected and notify others of issues, decisions, or questions *in real time*. As a development team, it's also helpful to be able to post formatted snippets of code into chat and discuss it with others. Skarpline also integrated with BitBucket and GitHub

Cons: I have used Skarpline for over 11 months (including the free and the pro service tier, which includes more Skarpline cards) and I haven't found anything I dislike about it.

Overall: The user experience with Skarpline is excellent! It uses an elegant, clean UI design that helps interact with chats in an intuitive way.

The chat timeline is excellent, the user status is easy to understand and sharing files and have web cam chats is easy as pie. Not only that, Skarpline integrates with popular task management applications such as Asana.

Skarpline allows us to easily communicate in real time with contractors in other countries.

It probably sounds silly, but one of the things I really like about Skarpline is the huge set of emojis. Skarpline comes pre-configured with a lot...like A LOT

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't let "it's on Skarpline" be the sole reason for going a full week without meetings. Don't expect the whole team to have read every Skarpline message. The *whole* team or squad should be at a meeting.

Pros: 1. Plenty of essential integrations such as Skype, Dropbox, Google Drive.
2. Easy to use.
3. Team members can follow each others' task and then get notifications about every state change
4. Helped minimise loose ends. You can track all tasks and what each team member is working on.

P.S Awesome custom emojis :-)

Cons: I hope they introduce a mobile app as soon as possible.

Overall: The tool is easy to use and has many use cases that can be easily supported as bug tracking, applicants tracking, recruitment, implementation projects and more. We also used it to collect rejects from testing done by users during user acceptance testing sessions. It's good for both a self-task list or team working on a project together. Lot's of features for following tasks updates, posting a task by email.

Recommendations to other buyers: It has a free version that has some limitations, just try it and run a smaller project in it and be surprised how simple it is to use and have a real first-hand experience if the tool is suitable for you (does it cover well your daily work, check, if it fulfills the demands from your external parties, so basically if you need to give an insight, are you able to answer those questions easily enough or not)
