Quip

I've found Quip to be extremely useful as a collaborative document sharing platform, moreso even than the Google suite, because the user interface is pleasing and intuitive, and it's much easier to organize and find files. If you prefer the File System Hierarchy style organization of Google Docs, Quip might not be for you - but if you're looking for a new take on organization with a more graphic feel to it, I would recommend giving Quip a try.I would say Quip is best suited for documents you're sharing or working on with an internal team, especially something that's for reference or a rough draft, since it's not big on formatting. This definitely isn't a platform for making a polished document to show off to customers, etc.

Pros

Abstract

  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members

Quip

  • Search. Quip has a great search feature. Without it, it would not be the time-saving tool that it is. Why? Because Quip (the way we use it) houses a LOT of information. When I'm looking for a document, I can do a quick search without having to remember what path of folders I put the document in.
  • Client Sharing. I have a particular client whose sales I track every morning from their website. I update this document, which has formulas in it, to calculate all the necessary information that we need and the client is able to access it any time they want to see the numbers which saves the client an immense amount of time.
  • Privacy. My boss particularly likes this area as a small company with no HR department. He can keep employee files so that only he can view them without the risk of other people being able to see them.

Cons

Abstract

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

Quip

  • Quip office documents are not as full featured as Microsoft Office documents you may be used to. Mind you, there are thousands of features in MS Office documents. But even some of the more basic features are not available. I have many problems with formatting. The worst problem is when a document starts in something else like Microsoft Office and then you try to copy it to Quip. You usually end up having to re-write it if it was complicated.
  • Quip documents will feel slow compared to locally based documents. The performance is similar to what I have seen with O365 documents editing online and only a little slower than Google docs (Google docs do this surprisingly well). But if you are used to working fast in a document you will be challenged by the response time. The problem seems worse with more than 1 person in the document and especially if the document gets large.
  • It would be nice to see Quip embrace Google apps or O365 more. Many companies and users have one or more so would be nice to move between and not lose so much. These are competitors and I know why that would not be a priority but it does mean sometimes I may not put something in Quip.

Usability

Abstract

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.

Based on 1 answer
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

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?

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

Quip

OneNote is a great product for collaboration and note taking, but we found it fell short compared to Quip in more formal document creation across teams. It also regularly had trouble bringing in outside members who did not have an institutional Microsoft account. Occasionally, we also had sync problems. Quip's simplicity and ability to provide better layers of security and collaboration overcame this key problem.

  • Since getting Quip, we've been able to move projects forward at a faster speed. There is more accountability among our team.
  • I was not the purchaser of the tool so I am unsure of its ROI.
  • Overall business objectives are being met with Quip and we see a good reduction in project lifecycle time.
