Why Drag is the best Front alternative for Gmail users.

No more switching between Gmail and Front

Front is not only competing directly with Gmail, but also with it’s ever-growing features and the massive community of developers in the G Suite marketplace. Front users still use Front to collaborate and rely on Gmail for their personal inboxes. Crazy, isn’t it? Drag is a FrontApp alternative that works right inside Gmail.

Work in a visual way

Visual workflows are proven to make your team work faster and happier. The best workflow management tools out there, offer visual ways of working.

Drag is not different. Besides the traditional email list view, Drag brings a visual kanban view to email to make your life easier.

Manage more than incoming inquiries: manage workflows

Front is very good if you want to collaborate on incoming emails or enquiries. Incoming enquiries are the core of most workflows, but sometimes enquiries alone are not enough.

In Drag, you have all the context you need around a workflow from one place – emails, contact info, to-do lists, notes, files, external links and more.

Collaborate cross-team and cross-domain

Front only allows you to share inboxes with your own team, across 1 single domain.

With Drag, if you are working with clients, contractors or other stakeholders, it’s not a problem. You can share Drag boards across any domains, as long as they are in Gmail or G Suite.

Drag has the simplest pricing.
