Likelihood to Recommend

Abstract

Our design department is indeed very happy with Abstract to solve their issues with regard to versioning and collaboration, etc. The admin side of the program is not that great. It's easy and simple, however, it would be nice to limit access more easily and maybe even link Abstract with our directory. The flexibility for accessing the work designers do can't be beaten!

Lua

I wouldn't recommend Lua because they were recently acquired by another company and will be shutting down. It was unfortunate that we were only given 2 months notice right after signing up for another 1-year term.

Alternatives Considered

Abstract

There are very few tools that compete with Abstract right now. I would say none of them are even close to this yet.

Lua

We chose Lua because of their price point and feature set compared to other tools.
