Notion is good for a plethora of use cases. The templates that it offers give just a few established pages for common uses but these are some of my favorites:
Kanban board: we use it a lot in my company to manage tasks and meetings Note taking: whether in a professional or academic environment, Notion is well suited to take notes of everything regardless. Software documentation: the "code" component to insert code snippets is perfect for creating tutorials and documentation for software development. Finance control: I use the "my finances" template to have a proper following of my monthly transactions, which allowed me to be more responsible with my money. Inventory management: Since I own multiple peripherals and general equipment, being able to have a portable inventory of all of it that includes their original value, warranty length and current state has been perfect to know when clean, maintain or straight up replace everything.

Quip is an excellent program for pulling all writing together under one roof. Some may argue that you could just use the Google suite of products (which is technically true), however, I think Quip is easier to use and bring all document types together with better organization. The searchability is top-notch (I solely use ctrl+j and the search pane to move through Quip). For any company that does a lot of writing for multiple clients, or has a lot of projects going, it provides solid organization. It also is great for allowing visibility into project status without someone potentially causing a conflict (corrupting a document). If you are looking for a full-scale project management software - Quip could probably do it, but it would likely take a bit more internal work to get your system setup.
Read full review Pros Team Collaboration. In Notion's software is the ability to see precisely who is working on a project and where. This eliminates any confusion when on calls or when working on the same project simultaneously. It is easy to tag co-workers to precise moments and build conversation streams. Text Coding. When transitioning text from our Notion ideation and drafting boards to our website backends, the coding holds on all of the text. Organization. Whether it's utilizing a "pin board" set up or nestling pages within pages, it is possible to keep everything organized and easy to find for every member of your team. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons The increase in integrations with third parties will always promote the adoption of the platform in companies. Personalization with logos and corporate colors sometimes makes the difference when selecting a tool in a corporation. Having multiple functionalities for working in manufacturing companies and with devices developed by third parties encourages other companies to select Notion as their flagship tool to offer implementation packages under alliances that favor its use. Read full review Update frequency - it feels like I need to update the application about twice a week. It's important to push new functionality and address bugs, but it often feels like the Quip team doesn't have their release schedule planned out very well. Constant updates are disruptive and counterproductive. Automatic date reminders - Quip will automatically set a date into a reminder as you type it, which could be a useful feature, but it just ends up being annoying. More often than not I'm just typing today's date in a document to track meeting minutes, or potentially adding in an expected delivery date, for which I really don't need a reminder.

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 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
, but by how much?

only has the Kanban board feature and is great for task management, while Notion has a vast array of features, is easier to use, and has a more visually-appealing interface. I choose to use Notion over
due to its increased versatility and greater customization capabilities.

We no longer use Teamwork but when we did, we tried to house documents but we'd always forget where they were. They weren't easy to access.
we still use sometimes, but if all our clients used quip, we would no longer need to use
except for audio and video files so Quip could improve on importing audio and video files.
Read full review Return on Investment In just a short amount of time, the majority of my course draft has been transferred into an interactive online course, always live Sufficient control over page structure gives a clean look, with sufficient means to add some personal touches After a learning period, I could concentrate on the content rather than the tech A huge motivational drive to learn more about no-code platforms (enthusiastic learner!) Read full review 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. Read full review ScreenShots
