Fleep User Stories is a series of blogposts that highlights the cool people, teams and companies that use Fleep in their daily business.
This time, our user story features PlanetX, a full service web agency. The PlanetX team designs and builds websites, applications, mobile solutions and other awesome digital media.
We spoke to Keval Kankotiya, co-founder of PlanetX, about how and why they use Fleep for their project communication. Without further ado, here’s the PlanetX Fleep user story…
How did you find out about Fleep?
Hello from PlanetX! We are a creative IT agency and we were spending lot of time behind making task lists and sending it through email and project management systems.
We were looking for something that can save our time and keep track of each and every small task so that we don’t miss anything.
We tried several messengers like Skype, Hipchat and Slack in the past but all of them have some limitations. Slack was promising somehow but the pricing was high for our team of 30+ members worldwide and continuously adding more day by day.
“I went to the Fleep website and checked the features – surprisingly it is exactly what we were looking for.”
— Keval Kankotiya
How do you use Fleep?
We are a team of 30 people spread worldwide – India, USA, Australia and Germany. We use Fleep as our general internal team communications tool for our remote team.
What do you like about Fleep?
“I am more than happy with Fleep, it is the perfect messenger especially for IT agencies. It is super flexible and easy to use.”
What could be improved in Fleep?
When I first found out Fleep does not have a Linux app, that was a bummer. We are an IT company and some of our team members use Linux…
So I asked Fleep Support about it (P.S. their support is excellent and they respond very quickly!) and I got the response that they are building a Linux app, to be launched soon!
Fleep works on any web browser though, so currently our Linux team members are using it on the web browser. But we are looking forward to seeing the Linux app ASAP. :)
Edit: Since publishing this article, we have released Fleep for Linux.
In the end I will say BIG GO for Fleep if you want to save time and to have efficient messaging. Happy Fleeping! :)
