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.
No photo available
  • Yammer is user friendly and (to many of us) intuitive enough to get started using without training. There are many collaboration platforms out there, but the web interface is really great and the device apps are ok as well.
  • Yammer is multitenant and evolves constantly by making well-tested and small incremental changes. I feel assured that Yammer will be an even better solution in the future, thus a secure investment.
  • Yammer is the hub for creating a social intranet together with Sharepoint. Finally we can make the intranet worth the investment by making people wanting to use it on a daily basis. The integration today is somewhat slim, with the Web App, SSO etc,. However, it's one of Microsoft's highest priorities to make the integration deeper.
  • Yammer is a great platform to create Customer Networks that really drive customer engagement. The user experience is great and the way employees can connect with customers is creating much value.

Cons

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

  • Security. The data is stored in the USA, and with the current NSA debate, this makes our European customers a bit concerned. However, the European Commission, who overseas the data security within EU, uses Yammer.
  • Device app functionality. Many of us only use login to their social media accounts, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, on our smartphones or tablets. This is relevant for our work tools as well. However, you cannot yet edit Notes or see current #-tags in the apps.
  • Sharepoint integration. This is so important for our customers that the current level of integration must be considered as a weakness even though Microsoft has it as one of their top priorities.
  • Outlook integration. Many of us use Outlook for email, calendar and contacts. To break the habits of sending emails, Yammer and other ESN-tools face the challenge of having people switching from Outlook to Yammer to send a message. However, Yammer is working on an integration to Office and Outlook to bring the ESN-experience closer to the productivity tools.

Our new applicant tracking system has sufficient document management and collaboration features such that we don't really have a need to adopt a second system. We will lose out on some functionality, but it was determined that the loss was outweighed by the need to avoid using multiple systems.

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)

Each app serves a different purpose even though there may be some overlap. Yammer is a little like Facebook and one can create, join, or find communities, and many people are familiar with Facebook. Slack works with channels and there are some people who are not as familiar with that. But as they are, Yammer can be perceived as for fun, while Slack appears to be better for collaborative conversations.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration
No photo available
  • Yammer is typically included in the O365 suite of products so there is no additional financial commitment (depending on the subscription you purchase)
  • Increases social collaboration and discovery outside of organizational and departmental silos
  • Encourages interactions and improves morale, which has a positive impact on the bottom line.
