"Use it for multiple groups in a charitable organization setting"

What do you like best?

This is the best app yet to keep in touch, brainstorm, schedule and keep people in a group informed on what's happening and what's next. It not only has painless group/individual text messaging capabilities, you can record and send voice messages and even videos! I used it to send a short instructional of myself setting up a rather complicated piece of software, and people were able to replicate the algorithm.

What do you dislike?

The only two things I really dislike about crew are the following: If you try to send a message to everybody and you don't have already a conversation that you can reply to, you have to select everybody from the list individually, you cannot select in bulk. The other very annoying thing for power users like me is the fact the the app is always in portrait mode, it doesn't accommodate landscape mode.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Crew is a great app, and it has a free and a paid version. You can download and use it for several separate groups. Highly recommended!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instant group communication, calling unscheduled meetings, informing about emergencies. Also, brainstorming ideas, virtual voting and virtual meetings. Also, scheduling shifts and keeping everyone informed. Also, training people in how to use software, and even hardware. Also, promoting and encouraging employees for special achievements.

"Simple system, great results"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to schedule my employees from anywhere and any device. I love that I can see at a glance what events I have going on a day and if I have staffed properly or not. It helps facilitate communication between the members of my team and has helped develop even more of a family environment.

What do you dislike?

There are significant differences between the mobile and web. You can add notes to shifts on the mobile view, and they are prominently displayed. On the web view, not only is viewing the notes depreciated, but you cannot even add notes to the shift.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make note that the mobile app is the only way to add notes to a shift. You cannot add or edit notes from the web version of the product. It can take a while to get buy in from your team. We had to use incentives to encourage the use and adoption of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Crew has simplified my scheduling and brought me from the dark ages of using a white board to a mobile optimized cloud based system that I can access from anywhere in the world at any time.

"Great Team Tool"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that it works just like a text message, but it is only for those who are invited to be a part of the group / team. It keeps all of our messages to each other separate from all the other text and social media chatter on everyone's phone. It is great to use on the web as well as the app on the phone. I leave the page up on my computer all day to easily send messages to the team.

What do you dislike?

Adding tasks to team member(s) feels clunky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a quick way to communicate with your team of any kind, I strongly urge you to take a look at Crew! It's FREE!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are not able to ask questions to each other and know it is for work because it is in our team group. No more notes, questions or comments being lost in the chatter of regular text messaging on our phones.

"Well structured communications app"

What do you like best?

I’ve been using this app for a short time now but really enjoy it. Like most we are trying the free version but the structure for pricing feels reasonable at the annual level. We’ve been able to keep all communications within the app to avoid HR concerns of sharing staff cell phone numbers since all employees are invitees using the admin account.

What do you dislike?

I’d like to see a trial period of say a month to give the Pro feature a shot before committing to the whole year. I admittedly have not read the T&Cs to see if there’s a satisfaction window offered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. So far the app is feature rich, bug free and smooth. Not too large or demanding and no cost to employee level users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since integrating the app into operations, we’ve streamlined communication regardless of device OS. We had problems with users not getting complete or timely delivery.

"A great tool in progress"

What do you like best?

The control of the whole team at one place. Easy to publish announcements and talk to other employes.

What do you dislike?

A company can have more than one location. It would be great to have the possibility to set a person a location when creating the schedule.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great software, with a few limitation. But they are always improving and realizing new feature. Support team always interact and really take notes of all your suggestion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Phone store, keeping the team aware of the new promos and prices, schedules. Keeping the communication in just one tool, where everybody is on the same page.

"Easy, convenient communication for multi team workplace"

What do you like best?

Crew gives you the ability to communicate with individuals and teams. It also has buttons that make it easy to reply without typing an answer. The app also has important information (i.e. schedules) that are uploaded into it. It is easy to access different schedules in the app rather than opening them in Google Drive or via email.

What do you dislike?

Crew often has glitches and seems to require a lot of updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I teach in a school and Crew has allowed us teachers and staff to efficiently and seamlessly communicate without having to interrupt teaching.

"Great way to communicate to large team"

What do you like best?

I can access multiple locations and post information across all our stores in one app. Schedules go out on the calendar in crew and groups can be made for different teams.

What do you dislike?

Hard to navigate on the back end with regard to adding and deleting members. Too many steps to achieve one result. There is not much I dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication is verified. We see each person that has read each message. Great at holding people accountable.

"Crew is a vital hub for business communication"

What do you like best?

In the restaurant business with dozens ofemployees, we use crew to communicate, post schedules and events, conduct meetings, and more. It is amazing for scheduling as employees can send requests for time off, switch shifts, and notify management.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to navigate from an admin perspective sometimes. We use multiple groups and chatsfor different reporting aspects. There are different members in each group, and it can be difficult to shift them around in groups as positions change.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Immediate communication.

"Easy app to use in order to communicate with staff"

What do you like best?

The Crew app makes it easy to communicate information to, share schedules with, and request coverage from all members of staff via smartphone.

What do you dislike?

There is a learning curve when using Crew and its features for the first few times and it can be a bit difficult to get used to. It is a bit difficult to find some features such as coverage posting and off requests.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because it translates easily between Apple and Android, it creates a universally convenient experience for all members of a company's staff no matter what platform or software they use.

"Better than most group communication apps. "

What do you like best?

I liked that it was more streamlined than other group communication apps that I have used in the past. Also being part of a large group and being spread out, this helped a lot having a quick way to reach each other.

What do you dislike?

There were a few glitches and a few times messages were erased or threads disappeared.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were very spread out in a large space, so it was nice being able to reach all the other managers in one spot very quickly.
