Nifty

I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
  • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
  • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
  • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
  • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
  • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
  • Assigning different components of projects to different people
  • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

Usability

Abstract

Abstract 7.0
Based on 1 answer
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 8.3
Based on 5 answers
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.

Nifty

We've tried several project management tools and most of them lacked the features we exactly needed. Jira was the last we tested and it was complicated to handle as projects grew bigger. Nifty is structured well and has major features that can handle big projects and does well in keeping track of current and past projects. The whole team loves Nifty

Return on Investment

Abstract

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

Nifty

  • Improvised the overall project management, task tracking across business lines where we introduced Nifty replacing the previous PM platform
  • Increase efficiency of our team
  • Better integrated with our tech stack including email and meeting apps - easier to collaborate and have logs of everything at one place.
