If you are generating a lot of content and working in a team environment, Notion is a clutch way to make sure that every member of the team is working on the same draft or version of your document. If you are in a process chain, it also becomes quite useful being able to drag the content card from one person's to do list from another's when it becomes their responsibility.

Skype for Business does the job it is designed for adequately and admirably. Our organization uses it to ensure all staff are able to contact each other via their work phone numbers, no matter whether they are working in the office, at home, or somewhere else entirely. To this end, it is very effective.

Pros

Notion

  • Notion is very easy to use and create content on. With other Wikis, you have to edit the page using widgets and never know what it will look like until you are done. With Notion you get to create in the same view that others will see when they view your page.
  • Notion is very clean and easy to read. There are a lot of different choices for how to format the content however you wold like.

  • Group Chat option allows multiple people to have a conversation away from the main presentation
  • Integration with Microsoft Office allows easy usage of excel, PowerPoint and other MS programs
  • Easy calendar integration for Microsoft Outlook
  • Mobile interface is very easy and intuitive

Cons

Notion

  • Sometimes the data functions are difficult to get working.
  • Wish there was an option for folders to better organized.
  • Formatting does not work well when using copy/paste or exporting to another type of file or document.

  • Probably the biggest area is the video element as it has historically struggled in this area.
  • The need to be forced to federate with another organisation by providing yours and enabling the other organisation settings is a bit tedious but once done, allows for simple collaboration between third-parties.
  • Functionality wise, as it's an older product and being superseded by MS Teams, it feels as if it's run its course but was very good for what it does/did at the time.

The software is simple to install and configure. It is rather simple to explain for correct use. It is possible to profile users for the different functions offered. It is integrated quite completely with Outlook and with Active Directory security. It performs all communication functions well with one or more interlocutors and the possibility of granting control of your computer is convenient.

Skype for Business is fairly user-friendly and has a good UI. It has strong audio and video conference call capabilities. It's easy to conduct meetings with various stakeholders across different locations and timezones. The chat and share a file or share my screen functions work seamlessly. If your company uses Office 365, then I would highly recommend it.

I have only had to reach out to the Support team at Skype for Business once with an issue, and I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by the quickness and thoroughness of their response. The wait time was short and my question was dealt with politely and clearly, so I would say the support team has it together.

Skpe for business is utilized company wide in regards to my company. Everyone not only uses it, but uses it often. It is an effective way of communicating. It also integrates very nicely with outlook and all conversation history is pushed to a folder within the outlook system. We also have it so that if someone misses a message, they are sent an email reminder saying that there is a message that went unread.

Alternatives Considered

Notion

I have replaced Evernote use with Notion. Evernote became just a place to shuffle resources to essentially read later, however products like Pocket have replaced that as well. Inclusion of the database approach from Notion far exceeds what Evernote offered. Evernote was good at keeping notes, but good portion of notes in my workflow are temporary and easy delete or archive.

We have switched to Teams, and it does offer a lot more so I think that it was the right choice, but Skype [for Business (formerly Lync)] was a very functional tool. The main issues were the bandwidth issues. The work computers aren't particularly high in RAM or processing speed so it would lag quite a bit. It worked well and was fairly intuitive otherwise.
Heather Hicks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

Notion

  • It reduces duplicative work as everyone is literally on the same page.
  • Allows multiple stages of the production to happen simultaneously without impeding the other, i.e. content editing and photo insertion can happen simultaneously once the draft is finished.

  • We almost lost our biggest client because of the poor performance early on in our implementation...the online meetings were poor quality for audio and bandwidth refreshing
  • Many of the employees in our company disliked the quality so much, they started to sign up for free Cisco WebEx accounts to use instead
  • The majority of employees in our company lost trust in our CTO because of his decision to switch from Cisco WebEx to Skype for Business
