I think the best part about Asana is how we can use it seamlessly across the company within all departments and have separate spaces for each department as well. We are all remote so when we aren't able to have a standup meeting it is easy to pop in there and see where everyone is on a specific project

Microsoft Yammer

Yammer provides a social network experience for the enterprise, providing a "Facebook for work". Its mobile app provides an excellent user experience, showing the full mix of communications happening across topics and teams. The web app, while it hasn't evolved much in the last few years, provides a good experience consuming news. Personally, I use Yammer every morning to see what's happening across my company and comment, like, and share to interact across silos.As long as the size of the network inside of Yammer is managed - likely partitioning a large organization into business units, etc., - then Yammer provides an excellent platform for social news and "bottom up" collaboration across teams. Its free-form posting style, including articles and polls for interactive content, helps break down silos across the organization. Contrasted with the boring world of email, Yammer is a tantalizing world of pictures, GIFs, and videos.At LiveTiles, we share company and team news via Yammer, enabling others to see the progress and milestones - from a new office to a new customer - without the heavy burden of a company newsletter or similarly curated content. Even though we have fully adopted Teams for day-to-day, intra-team communication, Yammer is still the gold standard for inter-team communication.

Pros

Asana

  • Easy to use by any user (good UX and no installation needed)
  • Easy to create a simple project, add tasks and sub tasks.
  • Different display options, according to the project/tasks type
  • Works great using a web browser, you don't have to install the application

Microsoft Yammer

  • Employees from around the globe get to follow, share and discuss a myriad of business topics on Yammer, our business social network. They get to start conversations, collaborate on files and organize projects so one can go further, faster. Plus the ease of asking questions, finding expertise and offer feedback on a topic without leaving the application you’re in saves time and keeps employees engaged.
  • When one works with teammates in Yammer groups, ideas fly! Do you have an important message to share with the rest of the community? We utilize Yammer to reach who you want within the company when you want, so no one misses a thing. Yammer brings the global conversation straight to you.

Cons

Asana

  • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
  • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
  • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place
Louis Schietekat | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Yammer

  • Editing functionality would be warmly welcomed by my team. There's currently no way to edit posts in Yammer once they've been posted. If a typo is bothering you, you'll have to delete your post and re-post with the edited text.
  • Yammer's design leaves something to be desired. Document editing is not great.
  • No obvious way to sort/organize files uploaded to Yammer. If files from a certain user are needed, you'll have to go to their profile and sift through their uploaded files.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.

Microsoft is dedicated to continual improvement on Yammer. They realize the value that Yammer brings to the table with their clients. In the short time that we have had Yammer implemented, we are just now beginning to see the strong impact it has on becoming more effective and efficient around collaboration.

Usability

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

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.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

We have never had to use the support for Yammer. The tool works well and we have not come across any bugs. User Interface is simple and easy to use, similar to other forum type products, thereby removing the need for any extensive training. Team members are invited in and immediately are able to start using the tool.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Asana compared to Jira is certainly better in terms of user experience, since most of the people can start using it basically without having any kind of training or previous explanation, which makes it really useful not only for people already used to project management but also for people new in the matter and with a need of a tool that provides all that value in the quickest and better way

Microsoft Yammer

Microsoft Yammer far exceeded expectations when the company I work for switched from SharePoint. There was a limited learning curve, and a bit of training need, but generally the transition was smooth. SharePoint, while it proved to be useful company-wide, we have found that Microsoft Yammer creates more of a social network within departments. Microsoft Yammer provides a personal employee communication and information sharing

Return on Investment

Asana

  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.
Kristi Porter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Yammer

  • Adoption. When an ESN is implemented the wrong way, e.g. you force it on the organization without explaining the benefits for the user and not providing enough instructions and training to get started, it may well backfire on you and build a wall of resistance from the organization. Thus, to create ROI you need to think before you launch Yammer, and take help from people who know how to do it, e.g. a CSM or a CM.
  • Belonging. Yammer makes people feel more involved and up to date on what's happening. This increase employee engagement and helps management to steer the organization in the right direction.
  • Find blind spots. Yammer enables people to share ideas and prototypes with many people both within the company and invited customers (via an external network). This is a great way to discover blind spots and other flaws, to give you time to adjust them before going to market with a new product or service.
  • Find expertise. Yammer makes it much faster for anyone to find answers. Thus, time spent on finding an answer to a customers questions is not only reduced enormously, but Yammer enables you to get answers to questions that earlier was left unanswered because you couldn't find information at all.
  • Collaboration. To work together to create a presentation, social media content, a newsletter, a report, is much easier and faster when using Yammer. And you can get valuable input from people you never thought of asking.
