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

  • 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

  • Can be difficult to get phone support if there are questions
  • Some of the tools are not quite as feature-rich as competitor products
  • Integration with Office 365 suite can be a little confusing because there is feature overlap (for example, Yammer vs Teams, or Yammer vs Sharepoint)

Overall happy with our experience of Yammer, although integration with SharePoint is still not great, and document editing is far from being satisfactory. If document editing and versioning is a strong requirement, other tools in the market do it better. Yammer excels in the collaborative part of it, allowing quick comments and sharing of documents, tagging and notification.

Usability

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

We organically implemented the product

Alternatives Considered

Basically, all these applications have the same functions, to share jobs and projects in real time and have functioned very similar to social networks that are used daily such as Facebook, Instagram, and others. Yammer was chosen because it is very easy to use, fast and safe.

Return on Investment

  • Reduction of email traffic
  • More sharing of content and conversations
