Allo
Allo is ideal for brainstorming, designing, and presenting information in a remote company. With its easy-to-use tools and modern, minimalistic, and non-intrusive interface these kinds of tasks can be done in Allo beautifully. However, it was difficult for us to have a detailed project schedule (with automatic reminders for tasks and subtasks). To sum up, Allo is a perfect digital paper canvas but currently, it lacks automation features.

Salesforce
Well, they are suited. 1. We use it as an effective way of collaboration between teams. 2. Can be used as an online spreadsheet. 3. It helps in accessing the data by multiple teams hassle-free. 4. Can customize the action, like editing or locking the spreadsheet to the other users based on the business need. Less Suited/inappropriate: 1. The UI is very much outdated. 2. The number of rows to be added to the spreadsheet has limitations. & We have to create a new Quip every now & then once the row limits are reached. 3. Can't do a detailed analysis like pivots tables etc. 4. Other functions like sort & filter options in Quip are not so user-friendly, unlike other spreadsheets out there in the market.

  • 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.

  • When using Quip Desktop, it can be slow to update with content from other users
  • I think it would be cool to have a PDF proofing system integrated into Quip. Once copy has gone to design, we are basically done using Quip - I'd like to bring that all together within Quip
  • Multi -select and group export of documents would be helpful

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

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?

Miro is a direct competitor for Allo. It has more features and integrations but Allo appeals much more to us because of the easy-to-navigate and elegant interface, as well as speed. Infinity is an all-in-one project management app. It's ideal for detailed project management and keeping tracts of tasks (and other. items) but Allo is much better for designing and brainstorming.

Google Drive is an obvious choice for a collaboration suite, but it still has this old-fashioned Windows 95 feel to it, with the standard file system hierarchy and spread-sheet like lists of files. Quip has a fresh take on the user interface, and the comments and discussion on a given file or line within a file seems more integrated and seamless, rather than a bunch of boxes out in the margin away from where you're actually reading and working. Having everything just to the left of a list or paragraph makes it easier to focus and maintain context while you're working or discussing a certain point.

  • 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.
