Microsoft Yammer

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

  • No one likes getting a long thread of reply-alls. With Yammer announcements and updates can be shared — without cluttering your inbox.
  • Yammer's mobile apps are great for our on-the-go sales team to stay in touch with our office staff.
  • Yammer's social aspect makes it incredibly easy to use, even for our less tech savvy teammates. If you've used Facebook, learning Yammer will be a cinch.

Cons

  • 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.

The fact that Yammer is a multitenant tool, owned by Microsoft, and the way they work to constantly improve the product, makes me assured that it will become an even better ESN-tool in the future. The integration to Office 365 and other Microsoft software will make it fit in nicely with the entire technology platform, since we use many of Microsoft's solutions. Others things that I consider is that I like the Yammer spirit and people, and how they work together. They are passionate about creating the best ESN-experience. And passion is extremely important!

Usability

Microsoft Yammer9.0
Based on 3 answers
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

I have used Salesforce chatter, it lags at the customization end. Yammer stands out as the integration with Microsoft products is seamless.
