Pros

Microsoft Yammer

  • Yammer offers a mobile app. This gives our employees an opportunity to review documents and collaborate on those documents anywhere at anytime.
  • Yammer provides a user interface that is very easy to use. Not only is the interface easy to use, but it is very similar to Facebook. Therefore, there is very little training that needs to occur with the user population.
  • Yammer offers an excellent user community called the YCN (Yammer Community Network). Once you become a member of this network, you can ask any question and a response is delivered within minutes. This is especially valuable when you may not understand certain features/functionality that Microsoft has delivered. The community has experts that are extremely helpful.

Cons

Microsoft Yammer

  • Document editing is still poor. The rich text editor is far from being rich, compared to other online editors in the market.
  • Import/export of data is limited. Often we are challenged with the need for importing a massive repository of documents, from file system or SharePoint for example. When closing a group, we also need to archive all posts and documents contained.
  • Layout personalization: Very little can be changed to the layout of a Yammer site. We'd like to introduce more advanced branding of the site and increase the portal identity.

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.

Usability

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

Microsoft Yammer

We used Share Point currently and in the past would post things there, Yammer is a little better because people are used to seeing a feed scroll and Share Point did get ignored after a while. PostS tend to get stale there quicker since the format is not as appealing.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Yammer

  • Yammer helps direct more social conversations away from email - which can help organize workflow.
  • Searching for files is very efficient. The tool does a great job of helping one quickly searching metadata to make collaborating more efficient.
  • Yammer has helped make our large organization feel more like a family. Therefore, there are fewer communication limitations across the company, which helps increase productivity and the knowledge-base of who to turn to with questions.
