I think it is well-suited for populations who value social media and being connected in this manner at work. If the population does not value this type of open interaction, it will be underutilized. Many of our baby-boomer generation staff have a hard time seeing the relevancy of a site such as this.

Pros
Abstract
  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members

TIBCO Software Inc.
  • I think it helps people crowd source an organization for information and resources that may not be easily found.
  • The subjects feature is a great place to develop communities of practice where links, files and communication can be shared.
  • As long as the search engine is optimized / working effectively, it can be a powerful way to access sites and resources across the organization.

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

TIBCO Software Inc.
  • The profile finder is glitchy and rarely comes up with solid results.
  • The site sometimes has glitches, such as subject pages not loading and complete content not appearing on the screen until you refresh or give it an abnormal amount of time to load.
  • The "USAID Search" option should appear first for the search results. It is not intuitive that it is the last search option to select. Often users don't even clearly recognize that they need to select types of search results.

as already explained this software only does branching... the rest is really poor and basic

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.

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.

Return on Investment
Abstract
  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.

TIBCO Software Inc.
  • I feel that it has connected colleagues who would have never met in our global organization.
  • I has created a division in the organization between the users and those who oppose its existence.
  • It has been a great place for communication-oriented departments to get their messages out, advertise events, etc.
