Quip is an excellent program for pulling all writing together under one roof. Some may argue that you could just use the Google suite of products (which is technically true), however, I think Quip is easier to use and bring all document types together with better organization. The searchability is top-notch (I solely use ctrl+j and the search pane to move through Quip). For any company that does a lot of writing for multiple clients, or has a lot of projects going, it provides solid organization. It also is great for allowing visibility into project status without someone potentially causing a conflict (corrupting a document). If you are looking for a full-scale project management software - Quip could probably do it, but it would likely take a bit more internal work to get your system setup.

Salesforce

  • Our experience with Quip has been nothing short of astounding; I love everything about this collaboration tool.
  • I love that it is cross-platform and works so well on mobile devices; it makes it unhindered to make progress on to-dos, take notes, export spreadsheets and documents, and have all my information organized within one environment.
  • I also love that it notifies me when someone has done something in shared documents and the incredible ease of linking documents in chats.
  • Quip's user interface is friendly and comfortably navigable; it feels right.

Cons

Abstract

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

Salesforce

  • Update frequency - it feels like I need to update the application about twice a week. It's important to push new functionality and address bugs, but it often feels like the Quip team doesn't have their release schedule planned out very well. Constant updates are disruptive and counterproductive.
  • Automatic date reminders - Quip will automatically set a date into a reminder as you type it, which could be a useful feature, but it just ends up being annoying. More often than not I'm just typing today's date in a document to track meeting minutes, or potentially adding in an expected delivery date, for which I really don't need a reminder.

    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.

    It is the best collaboration tool in my company. Through it, the organization has achieved better connectivity and efficiency in its communication. Primarily, the docs feature of this software is the most utilized in the company. Slowly, dash-boarding and project management features have also been utilized. Generally, it is the best tool, very easy and fairly streamlined

    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 have never used Quip's support. To be fair, we hired someone who used to work for Quip before working at our company, and he implemented it and pushed it with the team. He was very biased toward the product, and yes it was better than Google Drive, but by how much?

    We no longer use Teamwork but when we did, we tried to house documents but we'd always forget where they were. They weren't easy to access. Dropbox we still use sometimes, but if all our clients used quip, we would no longer need to use Dropbox except for audio and video files so Quip could improve on importing audio and video files.

    • Quip allowed collaboration and communication between Salesforce team and the rest of IT as well as business users.
    • Quip allowed collaboration on documents that was very interactive and helpful to the creation process.
    • Quip frustrated us because we had so many documents that we already had but they did not work well inside of Quip.
