My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

We've had associated set up groups on a variety of topics like business technology, flexible packaging, Office 365 and SharePoint, protective solutions, public speaking, wellness, diversity and more! In fact, Sonoco associates from around the world who participated in our recent #WearPinkDay shared their photos on Yammer. This is one of the best positives scenarios!

Pros

  • Great for task administration.
  • Customer service is friendly, pragmatic and always available.
  • Organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

  • Yammer is more of a social form of sharing than email. Which makes the information being delivered more personal and targeted towards specified departments.
  • Yammer allows for a "blog" feel more than our use of SharePoint in the past. Meaning there is a back and forth form of communication that wasn't necessarily available through SharePoint.
  • Yammer is more reliable than traditional work email, especially when using Lotus Notes, in order to send, share, and discuss within departments.

Cons

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

  • An area of opportunity is within the Yammer analytics. Yammer does offer a dashboard type view for basic analytics, but this needs to be improved upon in order for companies to obtain better usage statistics.
  • Another opportunity for improvement is with the mobile apps. While Microsoft is continuing to make improvements within the mobile environment, certain functionality can only be performed within the browser.

Overall happy with our experience of Yammer, although integration with SharePoint is still not great, and document editing is far from being satisfactory. If document editing and versioning is a strong requirement, other tools in the market do it better. Yammer excels in the collaborative part of it, allowing quick comments and sharing of documents, tagging and notification.

Overall easy to use and intuitive, although limited in the possibility to personalize layout and look & feel of a site. Some functionalities are not easy to use, like document editing, but some others are quick and effective (posts and tagging above all). Performance and responsiveness of the Yammer site is typically acceptable, in my experience.

The training that Microsoft provides is very generic training for Yammer. I like the fact the training is short and easy to understand

Alternatives Considered

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

I wasn't involved in the selection of Yammer, but compared to Saba Social, Yammer offers overall best performance, deeper level of programmability and ease of searching information. On the converse, Yammer is less user-centric and more group-centric, so it is more challenging, compared to the Saba offering, to know what a specific person has been doing. However, the flow of posts and documents in a group feed is better structured in a Yammer group than it is in a Saba group.
