What do you like best?
Ryver is a powerful tool but simple to use. It supports markdown, attaching files, creating global and private forums, nested topics, planning to do list and tasks, reminders, even videoconferences. I like the most the reliability of Ryver as a desktop and website communicator, allowing to fast reply, and plan/schedule the development process among different people from different organizations focused on the same team structure (3D artists, programmers, 2D artists, etc).
What do you dislike?
The "desktop" version of Ryver is almost undestroyable and gives us (as a team) the wider workshop and possibilities (even if there are occasional problems with disconnections). Website version of Ryver is a little, tiny bit less comfortable to use, when you need to functioning between different organizations. Mobile version of Ryver for Android is the worst among the company. It freezes sometimes, disconnects, sometimes even struggling to start the app directly from the push notifications (app returns error pages with unsuccessful connection and logging, also - similar as web app, the mobile app does not support working with a couple of organizations).
At very end: I would prefer that Ryver would have its limit up to 8 people, rather than 6 people per single organization, but this is only my point of view, as a Team Leader.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you are looking for a tool with a purpose of frequently communications, no limits (quota/messages), easily configurable, stable (desktop, web) and with additional support for tasks, reminders, simple Kanban => go for it and pick Ryver.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are working with different locations as a spread and international team, so we need a good and efficient platform not only to share written thoughts but also attachments (and Ryver offers that currently there are no upper limits for the quota), links (supported by markdown), pictures, and topics grouped by tags or subjects. With Ryver our team received all required possibilities to communicate and organize our work. We are using Ryver also as our internal documentation holder and Wiki Dev page, because unless than Slack, there are no limits for stored conversations - which allows us to keep all things together, without engaging external services for archiving PDF, a lot of base concepts and statements, initial agreements from the last 2-3 years, and code of conducts -> which does not disappear after unpredictable amount of time and should be accessible everyday.
