Flock vs. Slack
Using Flock Integrations
How Flock drives marketing
"At Drivezy, we believe in the power of communication and quick response and Flock is helping us strengthen it internally and externally"- Abhishek Mahajan, Co-founder
Book. Pickup. Ride. Drivezy makes renting cars and bikes child’s play. Formerly known as Justride, Drivezy is a marketplace for self-drive cars and two-wheeler rentals in cities such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, and Goa. With more than 700 cars on the platform, Drivezy is disrupting the vehicle sharing market.
For a company like Drivezy, which has +150 employees, it’s extremely important that its employees are able to collaborate and communicate easily to achieve perfection in their work. After having tried their luck with multiple team management apps like WhatsApp and Skype, Drivezy finally made the switch to Flock.
On any given day, the product team at Drivezy sends out more than one email per vehicle booking. That's a lot of emails for a company renting out more than 700 cars. Since switching to Flock, Drivezy has bid farewell to unnecessary emails and cluttered inboxes; they now receive their booking alerts in a common Flock channel and all the stakeholders are updated in real time.
Another team that uses Flock extensively is Drivezy's customer care department. For a team that works 24x7 in three shifts, keeping all their executives updated about the previous shift's activities is quite a task. But with Flock, all an executive has to do is log in to the app, view pending issues and updates, and voila, problem solved.
For the sales team, which is spread across locations, Flock’s file sharing and conferencing tools make coordination and collaboration easy as pie. "We interact with sales managers from different cities regarding meeting the targets and availability of cars in different locations. Flock makes information sharing quick and that is important for a growing company like Drivezy" - Pavni, Sales Team
"It was a seamless experience for us at TechSparks. We loved how we could keep our social media, sales and technical teams engaged throughout the event with the help of Flock."- Gaurav Derebail, Head of Brand & Content Marketing
As a tech startup, Drivezy depends on a number of external tools to ace its game. The tech team, for instance, uses the BitBucket integration to notify all members about commits to a repository, Sentry to keep track of all server crashes, Jira to stay updated with all issues and bugs, and Google Analytics to analyze traffic to a website.
The marketing team, too, has moved all their communication to Flock. Gaurav Derebail who leads the brand & content marketing team at Drivezy, hates switching between tabs. He depends wholly on Flock’s Google Drive integration, where most of his files are saved, to view and share them with his team.
And it’s not just Gaurav; the entire marketing team uses Flock to streamline and simplify its work. For instance, during the TechSparks event for startups, the team created a Flock channel where they shared live updates and photos with their social media team and answered customer queries with the help of their tech team in Bangalore.
They’ve also effectively used Flock to stay on the same page during events. For example, during the TechSparks event for startups, the team created a Flock channel where they shared live updates and photos with their social media team and answered customer queries with the help of their tech team in Bangalore.
Even as Drivezy works hard to connect vehicle owners with people across India, Flock is driving the company from one milestone to another.
