Comparison

What’s the difference between
Tribe and Stack Overflow for Teams?

Stack Overflow, as a Q&A site on the public web, is a key part of developers’ daily life. Although it has well-thought features, the offering for companies doesn’t offer a white-label experience, powerful customization capability, and comprehensive API access. The per-member subscription fee makes it harder for companies to scale when the team size increases.

Tribe is designed to offer a fully customizable community platform via a highly modular, API-driven, and white-label approach. Also, Tribe is not based on per member subscription fee, comes with 20+ direct third-party integration, SSO (with SAML), and enterprise-grade security. The generous free plan supports your custom domain without any restrictions on the number of members and content.

Highly engaging apps

Tribe offers some of the most compelling modern apps such as incentivization system via virtual currency that can be used to get desired user action, easy user management, and powerful analytics.

It’s your brand.
Fully customizable.

Tribe is a white-label social network solution. It is designed to adopt your brand and engineered to integrate with your website. You can even add your site header/footer to seamlessly blend it with your site navigation.

Stack Overflow does a good job with the public Q&A site. On the downside, the Stack Overflow for teams offering doesn’t offer complete customizations, comprehensive API, valuable apps, integrations, and advanced moderation tools. The per teammate-based subscription model is a major deterrent to scalability as well.

Tribe offers a customizable community platform, valuable apps, extensive API, webhooks, and white-label solution at extremely efficient pricing. Tribe also delivers better customer support via live chat and dedicated success team.

Hence, select Tribe, if you are looking for a robust and customizable platform with better customer support. Save yor budget and resources to invest in community development.
