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!

Microsoft Teams

Can have group chats on topics that only concern a few employees. We have a Technology group where we add and brainstorm new applications and software that might be appropriate for our company. It's a good way to organize our ideas and thoughts without having to send out mass email chains and we can discuss the ideas at our next meeting. Microsoft Teams also lets us efficiently communicate with remote workers since email can lag. This allows almost real-time conversations and collaborations for our employees.

Pros

Abstract

  • Branch management for design files.
  • Good collaborative features like comments and sharing.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Teams

  • Teams is particularly good at keeping conversation history in sync across multiple devices. Skype for business, which is Microsoft's other chat client, is particularly bad when it comes to this aspect.
  • The sidebar of the application window makes it easy to switch between all aspects of the application in one click. Easy switching between chat, notifications, and meetings.
  • Integrated hierarchy chart within each chat window easily allows you to see where an unfamiliar person you may be chatting with sits in terms of management level in the organization.

Cons

Abstract

  • Frequent bugs between Abstract and Sketch.
  • Takes a lot of processing power and battery.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Teams

  • Lack of rollout plans from MS that businesses can use to improve user adoption.
  • Slack still has more connectors.
  • Meetings could more intuitive and most of the screen is just pictures of people.
  • The desktop application is very large and absorbs a lot of system resources.
  • Multiple users cannot share screens at once, one at a time only.
  • Can't choose where to put files from conversations, they automatically are put in a Teams SharePoint.

It has a lot of great features and we are working to roll it out to our whole organization. It sometimes feels a little under-developed or maybe under used. There are some things I wish it did better - like integrating the group calendar rather than my own calendar and letting us have instant chat vs persistent.

Customer support seems to be fast at responding. We haven't had issues yet at least

Getting support for any MS Product kind of feels like pulling teeth. I have looked for support on the slowness of Teams to try and resolve it, but there is nothing really out there even from the MS reps other than deleting the hidden appsdata folder for Teams or uninstall/reinstall the software or just use the web-based Teams app.

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.

Microsoft Teams

Personally, I have used a number of applications similar to Teams for a variety of functions. However, with regard to my current organizational use, I would say my experience with Teams provides a much more well-rounded user experience than Skype for Business. Teams performs the functions of Skype and also integrates many other features integral to applications like Slack, Webex Teams, and Yammer. Teams also has the added benefit of being connected within the Microsoft network of apps. Users can leverage the powerful cloud computing of O365 in order to access other materials stored on the shared platform. This is a huge benefit of staying within the same ecosystem.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Saves time on file management

Microsoft Teams

  • We were already paying for Office 365 but now we got a great collaboration tool to go along with it.
  • We are able to stay connected with employees across the United States and no longer have to fly people back to headquarters for meetings and conferences, saving on transportation and lodging costs.
