Confluence vs. Sharepoint — The Best Intranet Software?

Confluence vs Sharepoint

Collaboration is the name of the game today. As more and more of our workflows move to the cloud, businesses need tools that let teams share information, communicate, and manage projects together quickly and intuitively.

New startups are popping up to fill this need all the time, which is why the market for cloud collaboration software is expected to grow from $10.5 billion in 2014 to over $21 billion in 2019. But, at the medium business to enterprise level, the companies making two of the most popular products are old mainstays of tech: Atlassian and Microsoft.

Atlassian’s Confluence and Microsoft Sharepoint both empower companies to set up an intranet. Think of an intranet as a private version of the internet your company uses to collaborate. But beyond that, the two products are very different in size, scope, and capabilities.

Let’s dive into these two products—Confluence vs Sharepoint—and figure out which one is right for your team.

consumer app

So you’ve had this awesome game-changing consumer app idea for years, and now you’ve finally gathered the chutzpah to make your mobile app dream a reality. You’ve consulted all your friends and family and even gone as far as running it past a few people in the industry. Everyone agrees—it’s a great idea. But a lot more goes into a successful app than just an idea and the development work.

Ignoring the impact of even one of these five details will prove harmful—if not fatal—to your consumer app.

Freemium vs Free Trial – Why we Ditched our Free Plan

Freemium vs Free Trial

A few days ago we silently changed Process Street’s pricing model for all new users from freemium to a 30-day free trial. At the same time, we increased the price on all of our plans except the entry 10 user plan (now Premium 10). Today, we announced to our users that we’re no longer offering the free plan and that everyone who is currently using the free plan will be switched to a 30 day trial of our Premium 10 plan.

During the trial, users have complete, unhindered access to test Process Street. They can create as many templates, team’s and jobs as they want, plus upgrade to any of the plans free of charge. At the end of the 30 days, they must decide if they want to continue using the product as a paid user or not.

All of our paying customers on plans larger than 10 users, will remain on their current plan with no changes unless they choose to upgrade/downgrade, in which case they’ll be moved to the new pricing model.

In this post, I’ll explain why we chose to change from freemium to free trial.
