Pros

Abstract

  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members

Ideagen

  • Huddle allows users to use the native document file types. For example, Word files are still in a Word, not a "Huddle" file version.
  • Huddle workspaces are invitation-only. If someone should not be in the workspace, they will not be invited and provided access to the documents. Or, they can be removed from the workspace if needed.
  • Communication about documents is located with the documents in a discussion thread under the document preview. Thus, email inbox clutter can be limited.

Cons

Abstract

  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.

    Usability

    Abstract

    Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

    Support Rating

    Abstract

    Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

    I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

    Sharepoint is very flexible, but very clunky and slow when all one needs is a quick document management solution. M-Files is a great, rich document management system, but until recently focussed less on the collaboration piece.

    Return on Investment

    Abstract

    • Single source of truth for the team.
    • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.

    • This has made it a lot easier for remote workers to access important documents without needing to use the VPN at home (which does not always work).
    • It clearly shows who updated the last document and when so it is clear who you need to ask if you have questions or something.
    • We have used it in client settings, so this saves money as we do not need to request a separate client laptop or VPN token.
