Slack is the leading choice when it comes to collaborating with employees within the organisation. And while Slack offers a Free tier, it does come with a fair amount of restrictions. However, now Flock, an app from Riva that brings in collaboration and more.
The free app is available on Android and iOS, and boasts features like unlimited groups, file sharing, polls, mentions, to-dos, video conferencing and even inviting clients and vendors to get instant approvals from outside the team. The app also allows integrating external apps like Twitter, Github, Trello, to name a few to allow seamless communication and sharing of information.
Apart from the boatload of features, Flock also comes with decent security features like TLS 1.2 data encryption, strict controls over employees’ access to the data, unauthorised access tracking and controlled guest access.
