Discord
Discord worked well for us in an academic setting, although I would probably recommend something like Slack--which has more professional connotations--for a work setting. Discord is great for more casual conversation because it has a connotation for being frequently used by gamers, Reddit users, large groups of friends, and people interested in a particular topic.

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 The UI is very much outdated. 2.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.

Pros
Discord
  • One to many Communications to ensure that we can quickly get messages out when we have to.
  • Quick polling of questions and issues
  • The ability to gate channels so we can focus on folks that we know are stakeholders gives them an added feeling of belonging and that they have a say in the direction of projects.

  • 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.

Cons
Discord
  • UI could always use improvement - may be a learning curve for new users
  • Many young to middle aged users but may be difficult for older generation to take up Discord as a means of communication
  • Sometimes the ads for their Nitro features can be obnoxious

  • 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

Usability
Discord
I can't really say much on this. It's extremely easy to use, it's very logical and intuitive, and very easy to install and set-up. Even the settings menus make sense even to nonliterate IT people.

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 would give it a 10 rating because it absolutely deserves it. Discord has made things like keeping in touch extremely easy for people. Anywhere from gamers, businessmen and even family calls are all a part of this fantastic application. The ease of access of being able to jump in a room with your friends and talk to them is amazing

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?

Discord is better when addressing many people at once. I like how you can upload emotes, and it's just a lot more fun. I don't even use Whatsapp anymore. I'd rather text people than use Whatsapp for all intense and purposes. Discord also uses bots and I don't think Whatsapp does.

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.
