Drag is the best GrooveHQ alternative if…

Your organization uses Google Workspace

Your team already uses Gmail, and GrooveHQ is an extra tool. Their users constantly switch between Groove (to support customers) and Gmail (to check individual emails). Drag is an excellent GrooveHQ alternative for Gmail usersΒ  because it lives in Gmail and stops the unnecessary back and forth.

You need more than a Help Desk

GrooveHQ is great to handle Help Desk tickets. But Drag handles more than that – we handle workflows. Our boards bring a series of workflow management features such as tasks, checklists, due dates or file sharing, for teams with email-driven workflows. This means you can also manage tasks, accounts, sales pipelines and other workflows from the same place.

You like working in a visual way

Besides the standard list view, Drag also offers visual kanban boards that makes it easier for teams to manage the status of the inquiries they are working on. Imagine a Trello board, but in Gmail.

GrooveHQ is best if…

You need an omnichannel Help Desk solution

Drag is the best tool to manage email-driven workflows. GrooveHQ, on the other hand, supports other communication channels besides emails, such as SMS, Facebook messenger or live chat. If you need other communication channels, Drag is not the best GrooveHQ alternative for you.

Why Drag is the best GrooveHQ alternative for Gmail users.

Drag lives in Gmail

Groove feels like email, but is still an extra tool. Drag is a shared inbox in Gmail to allow teams to manage Help Desk right from inside the place they spend most of their time – Inbox. No more back and forth between Gmail and an external Help Desk tool. Drag stays simple and easy, right from your Gmail account.

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.

Easy to set up, easy to use

Forget about endless training sessions to onboard your team to a new Help Desk tool. Drag not only works in Gmail, but can be set up in a very simply way, saving your team time and energy. Drag is the simplest GrooveHQ alternative you will find.

Drag is more than a Help Desk

With Drag, you can manage more than conversations with clients. Drag boards and cards were built to the building blocks of any workflow.

Manage customers, sales, projects and more, in one consistent way, in one single tool, right from Gmail. 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-teams and cross-domains

Groove 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, you can share Drag boards across any domains, as long as they are in Gmail or G Suite. You can also easily share across teams. For example if a request requires help from the technical team, drag it to the β€˜IT Support’ board in 1 click.
