“It does everything Slack does, but for free!”

“My small nonprofit has been on the search for a team communication software that doesn't break the bank. Slack is great, but unfortunately, the free version wasn't cutting it for us.
Luckily, we stumbled across Pumble, and it's perfect! It does everything Slack does, but for free! It's very similar to Slack in terms of functionality. Very easy to use. The interface is great. You can have multiple workspaces as well.”

“A promising Slack alternative.”

“One of the main reasons we switched to Pumble from Slack was the fact that Slack was too expensive for us and the free version of it didn't keep the history of messages. Pumble has a free chat history feature included from the start which is very important for us. Another feature that we like a lot is the channels. ”

“Another thing that I will look into is to host Pumble on my own server.”

”Easy to use, simple and clean layout. Using the software is not really complicated and it does not have a steep learning curve. I also like that you can download the app. Good alternative for Slack or Teams if you don't need all the bells and whistles, just a basic chat platform. Another thing that I will look into is to host Pumble on my own server”

“It doesn’t have a limit on message and files history.”

“Overall, I find Pumble very easy to use. Same as much as Slack. In fact, we migrated everything from Slack to Pumble now. I do not worry about messages being deleted anymore. It doesn't have a limit on message and files history compared to Slack. This is what matter's most to me as I really would love to review messages from time to time to check message threads.”

“Pumble is pretty much like Slack but tons of free features.”

”Pumble is pretty much like Slack but tons of free features. I've been using Slack with my clients for many years and I wanted to implement something similar for my own team. But Slack free, does not let you add more than 5 team members, I didn't see such a limit in Pumble though. It's very easy to get start with, very easy to manage. Login and Operation is very easy.”
