When I joined my company, there was just one writer who used Microsoft Word. That was functional for a single writer, but as we grew and had more writers and people who needed access to copy, we needed a better resource.

An issue we solved with Quip was version control. The original copywriter had a tendency to jump back to old, unedited Word Documents when rewrites were requested. By using Quip, we negated that because every document is always the current version (with the ability to restore back to previous iterations if necessary).

We use Quip for all copy generation, along with placing photos in the Quip docs. Everything gets proofed within proof and then it is an easy handoff to graphic designers.
  • Version control
  • Live document control
  • Organizing large projects
  • Centralizing where content is created/stored
  • Search is fantastic (find anything by title name or internal copy, and even any copy in spreadsheet cells)
  • When using Quip Desktop, it can be slow to update with content from other users
  • I think it would be cool to have a PDF proofing system integrated into Quip. Once copy has gone to design, we are basically done using Quip - I'd like to bring that all together within Quip
  • Multi -select and group export of documents would be helpful
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.

In my organization, Quip has played a vital role in the daily life of every employee by providing an environment where storing, safeguarding, and collaborating on documents seamlessly is possible; the user interface is as adequate as it gets for this type of tool and it is possible to use it from any device. The data backup capability is good, but even better is the collaborative capabilities. It notifies me when a document has been modified, by whom it has been altered, and more, plus it provides a revision history per document. It is simply a fantastic tool for individual and collective organizations.
  • 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.
  • In terms of customizations, it is limited.
  • Exporting spreadsheets with formulas applied from Quip to Excel is not the best action, as almost everything is formatted.
It is a tool with multiple functions and capabilities to efficiently supply the needs of almost any work team and organization. It reduces gaps between work teams to connect, collaborate and advance in their objectives within the same platform where the stored information is kept safe and can be exported in several alternative formats. I recommend giving it a try; you won't regret it.

Quip is an awesome software for project management and customer service. It has also great integration with other software. It is used by our team in collecting ideas and suggestions. Another thing is that, it has user friendly interface that makes it very accessible and easy to use. In addition, it functioned well in both mobile phones and computer, so I can work with my tasks anytime and anywhere.
  • It is integrated with Salesforce.
  • It can be collaborated with a large amount of team.
  • It has the ability to share documents and files in a very easy way.
  • It has a user friendly interface that helps users learn explore its feature in a short period of time.
  • It has the ability to provide the revision of the previous edited document.
  • The formatting options especially in editing photos.
  • In searching a certain file or document.
  • The application sometimes is very slow to load.
Based on experience, Quip is a very useful software especially when we are having a meeting and we are needing each others' ideas and opinions in a certain task, in a way that we can easily jot down it on the application. Another thing is that we can easily create and share documents with our colleagues and then talked about it afterwards.

It's a very good and easy-to-use tool when it comes to brainstorming with the team and keeping your ideas in one place. It has the ability to easily create and share various file formats such as documents, presentations, spreadsheets, etc. and then collaborate on them with the team. Basically it makes the process of writing and sharing documentation a lot more painless and enjoyable.
  • Create and share different types of file formats.
  • Features of showing the line-by-line edit history and ability to chat.
  • Similar to Google Drive.
  • Formatting features while exporting to Excel or Word can be improved.
  • More readymade features can be added for image customization.
  • Search functionality can be improved without labeling as well.
It is very useful when having a brainstorming session with your team. It will help a lot keeping random data and then processing it later on. A really good note-taking app--the unique features of showing the line-by-line edit history and ability to chat makes it important for me. It increases the productivity of our employees and helps them to work in collaborative mode easily.

Quip is our go to application for team collaboration across our organization. It combines chatting and documents processing in a single tool. We chat, create channels, engage with different teams, share documents, Excel files, and edit those files within the app. It works like both Office 365 and Slack combined as a single tool. UI is very familiar and user friendly.
  • Real time chatting across teams
  • Document sharing and processing
  • Document revisions
  • smart inbox
  • Cannot format files
  • Lacks customization
  • Mobile app needs UI revamp
It is a great alternative to Google Workspace, especially it has more chat capabilities. It is best suited for team collaboration working on documents and files together. UI is very well organized given it is a collaboration tool. However, its mobile UI is very outdated and cluttered. Overall its the best tool for team collaboration along with documentation.

Quip is a big help when it comes to organizing data and leads. It helps me to organized my tasks and reports without the hassle thus this software is good for an ease of access and good graphics. Another thing is, it minimized our working hours which is a plus in my organization since every day more data and leads are being gathered and are needed to be arranged and organized.
  • Organized leads and reports
  • ease of access
  • good graphics
  • user-friendly
  • color scheme
Quip is well suited in a company that focus on finding leads, assessing and organizing reports. Although Quip can be use in any field or any types of company. I don't think that Quip has a situation or scenario that it is less suited or appropriate since it helps in summarization and ease of access in terms of files and reports.

Quip was used as a collaborative way with our Teams to share and create documentation all within one application. This application was extremely helpful in that the company only had to use one app and not flip between multiple systems to get the job done. by being able to tag employees and add comments right in the documents created, it was so easy to collaborate.
  • shows live data so executive management can view it at any time
  • using one application without having to flip between systems
  • the collaboration aspect is awesome between tagging employees and adding comments right into the document
  • the ability to set reminders of tasks that are coming up due right in the document
  • i would say there is a bit of a learning curve, as with anything new, to fully understand how to get the most out of the feature
Quip is well suited for employees that work a lot in documents and reporting and need to provide upper management with reports on Team stats and project tasks. You can also turn any report into a document, which makes the integration so easy to use. Also well suited for Project Management and Account Management, which is something we used it for also

It is a great platform for productivity optimization for enterprises. With Quip, the collaboration is quite smooth. I love the straightforward user interface which is quite a user friendly. Overall the onboarding and testing have been quite easy. Looking forward to maximizing its use of it. This is really a phenomenal collaborative office tool. It's way beyond the other competition (including docs). This tool migrates to Office very easily, looks great, and is very simple to use.
  • Creates living documents for teams
  • Improves productivity through collaboration
  • Alternate for office for note taking, list making, creating documents, letters
  • Sometimes the product is slightly slow. This can be improved.
  • Overall they should add more integration options.
  • Could be better with the 2FA experience.
I think I live my overall experience with the product. It's quite straightforward and easy to use. Also, it is solving a lot of problems in one go. I am looking forward to continuing using it.

Quip is very easy to use within the organization and it provides to share and edit documents together at the same time. It is very easy to install and also easy to maintain. It also allows communication in real time. It supports a variety of documentation or file types to edit and share together.
  • Real time communication.
  • Edit and share.
  • Supports variety file type.
  • Group chat efficiency.
  • None.
When it comes to accessing the same document or file together and editing or updating the same then their Quip is well suited. It is the best solution to access the same file with many team members where it is more usable. I do not fount it less appropriate anywhere to use it.

I use this product to facilitate collaboration amongst members of my organization. It allows us to easily collaborate on spreadsheets and other types of company documents that otherwise would have been very difficult to do such collaboration on.
  • Collaboration on documents.
  • Planning of meetings.
  • Keeping track of progress.
  • User interface.
  • Speed.
Well suited for simultaneous collaboration, not well suited for individual work.

We use Quip to collaborate on projects, as well as on records in Salesforce
  • Integrate Salesforce records
  • Streamline data updates between Salesforce and Quip
  • Collaboration with change tracking
  • Both internal and external collaboration
  • Offering better templates for different business needs
  • Pricing is a major barrier to entry
  • Suggesting other uses
Quip is a great collaboration tool since it lets you pull in Salesforce data and then update that data from the Quip document. It has a lot of value but is also such a broad solution that you sacrifice functionality for broad application.

I use Quip for collaborative document writing as well as note-taking, meeting minutes, design documents, storing information, and more. It allows for great collaboration since it can be shared with anyone, especially in the software development environment since diagrams, code blocks, and equations can be inserted. Linking to referencing documents is also a great bonus when certain documents are part of a larger project. I have used it extensively for creating documents explaining designs and for my own planning.
  • Rich text formatting
  • Embedded spreadsheets
  • Linking to other documents
  • Revision history and comments
  • Reminders
  • Exporting to markdown would be great
  • Selection of a date format (for example, if the US date format is not preferred)
  • The mobile app could be better
Quip is great for collaborative writing. I think that you are able to get a message across, people can comment on your work, and the history is tracked, which is an added bonus. The ability to add code, spreadsheets, and images allows for a multimedia presentation of designs and important documents. Reminders are also excellent in terms of planning.

Quip is a great tool for team collaboration and uploading relevant documents in a way that's easily tracked and understood. Quip helped with making our sales process more efficient, specifically with sale stages and overall project tracking.
  • Sales process flow
  • Built-in collaboration
  • Live Salesforce data
  • Viewing uploaded Excel Files instead of always downloading the file
  • Better tracking options for contact records
  • Better UI experience
Quip is best utilized by teams and crews working on projects. Quip gives you the ability to view what your team is working on in real-time, which can be helpful on projects requiring precise time management. Working from home requires even more collaboration than ever. Quip allowed our team to organize, embed documents and files appropriately in a way that made sense.

Quip is currently used by our CS and technical teams to collaborate on documentation and research related to our product and business. Effectively, it is a repository to maintain documentation on nonstandard processes or product features as we seek to standardize those areas.
  • Collaboration
  • In-line editing
  • Not a true word processor
  • Better Salesforce integration
If you are looking for a collaborative tool, Quip is rock solid. @mentioning, commenting and history are excellent. Quip's usefulness is particularly prominent in developing documentation for internal dev teams. Challenges are that quip is not as ubiquitous as Google Docs, OneNote or Evernote. Because of this, sharing might not be as strong. Also, while it seemed to start as a SaaS word processor, I would not recommend if that is your primary use case.
No issues or need for support.

We use quip within our Office of Digital Learning, which houses our instructional designers. They then collaborate in Quip with faculty members who reside in our traditional Academic Departments. This allows for easily accessible collaboration regarding online and blended course design across multiple locations and teams.
  • Quip is simple and easy to use - it is familiar in appearance to tools like Google docs, which our users find helpful.
  • The ability to specifically mention and task other users within larger documents helps us to focus the attention of those we collaborate with.
  • I'd like to see Quip revert back to their previous method of editing text (adding bold, hyperlink, etc.) - moving it to the toolbar at the top of the screen slowed down our daily workflow.
  • It would be great to see Quip be able to employ "templates" which could be replicated easily by users.
Quip is excellent for collaborative document creation. It is more robust than Google Docs or Word Online, and provides a common space for writing as a team. We have found a few situations where we'd prefer more robust tool sets for the work we do, such as the ability to integrate databases, embed video, and embed websites. This more advanced work is likely better handled by a different tool.
Most of our issues have been addressed in a timely manner. There have been a few requests or concerns that have gone unaddressed for significant periods of time. I should clarify that these issues were more or less minor - we've never had an outage or significant disruption of service (barring a few hours here or there were it may slow down temporarily).

Quip is being used across the entire organization. Sales, CS, leadership, engineering, everyone. This was a way for our company to replace Google Docs, because many had qualms with Google Docs and its capabilities and organization. This was a great way to categorize and include other team members in day to day data and logging of notes.
  • Easy to search for docs (better than Google Docs)!
  • Great for logging information (data, notes, etc.) and roping in the members of the team that need to see the notes/add comments or add points to the doc (very collaborative).
  • Oddly - formatting was really difficult sometimes with Quip and it got frustrating.
  • Wish it would segment teams better and only send me emails of things that were relevant to me, not what engineering was doing (I was in sales).
Quip is well suited for a team that is completely reliant on logging data online. Yes, a ton can and should be logged with your CRM, but this is great for internal notes/notes for client facing meetings. Quip is great for brainstorming and roping in other members of your team, but as I mentioned before, it's just like Google but better, but is the ROI worth it? Not sure. I was not the decision maker/purchaser.
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 Google Drive, but by how much?

Quip is being used by my organization to facilitate team members staying on the same page. We create color-coded folders in order to discern topics and tasks that need to be completed. Its ability to be so collaborative is what makes coordinating with colleagues so effortless.
  • The ability to help you stay highly organized
  • Communicate with others in real time
  • It tends to restart a lot and any work you are doing is interrupted
  • Unless specifically set in your preferences, you'll get a slew of emails indicating updates
I work at a television production company so there are several hard deadlines we have to make as a team. Using Quip helps to keep members of the team constantly updated and in-the-know.

Quip serves less of a purpose when it comes to sharing documents outside of an internal group. Anyone who uses Quip in any sort of capacity, should have an account created by the admin.
Their team is efficient and quick when it comes to addressing problems/issues. Ensuring that their platform works smoothly is their priority. I believe they also like to stay ahead of the game and ensure that all their functions operate accordingly so they don't have to address issues down the road.

We use Quip across groups specifically around Sales and IT. We implemented it to capture our account plans as a collaborative tool. We also found it to be useful for tracking projects, meeting notes and other documents that use multiple mediums and require collaboration/sharing. Quip makes document sharing easy, fun to work with and essential to teams.
  • Collaboration across teams on documents.
  • Version and change control.
  • Better integration with Powerpoint.
  • From printing to PDF with full support.
Quip is an excellent tool when more than 1 person needs to work on a document at the same time. Collaborating on slides, or documents like notes, deal discussions, account plans, project plans, etc. The ability to store a document across multiple folders so it's easily accessible to others and individually sharing it to a wide or limited audience.
The Customer Success team at Quip had great best practices and use cases on how to best implement and on-board with Quip. They were super responsive, collaborative and enthusiastic. They were open to suggestions and provided solutions or workarounds when a situation called for it. We actually worked within Quip during our implementation so that we learned as we used it. As we went live, for any questions or issues, we had the support team was right in our Quip environment. I'm very happy with the support and help we got from the team.

Quip software has been leveraged as the best collaboration tool in my company. Through it, the company has achieved better connectivity and efficiency. 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.
  • Quip has empowered collaboration across the organization.
  • It has driven accountability through its fantastic features.
  • It integrates comfortably with a single-sign-on.
  • Its synchronization of files to a central online portal is admirable.
  • It has a very interactive user interface.
  • They should improve on branding to make it more effective on company branding
  • Should improve on charting
  • Should incorporate some Excel and Powerpoint features to make it more competitive on Google products.

We use Quip as our project management tool, where we store documents and chat and collaborate with internal team members. It is used within only the CRM Salesforce department. It solves problems such as where projects are, and how we collaborate. We also enjoy the calendar tool.
  • Integration with Salesforce users and records.
  • Kanban boards make it easy to visualize projects and tasks within projects.
  • Live Salesforce reports without the tool help with being able to see data without having to login to Salesforce.
  • Mobile app is easy to use.
  • The interface could be improved to match the lightning look and feel. We get a sense Salesforce is using this acquisition as a re-brand and not a deep Salesforce product.
  • Ability to give external user access without a full license would be nice.
  • Having some more app-exchange add ons would also be nice.
Quip is well-suited for any scenario where you have multiple team members working together on a project. If you already use Salesforce, Quip is a great tool to get as an add on for collaboration within your team. If you currently do not use Salesforce as your CRM then you may not see all the deep linked benefits.

Quip is being leveraged as a collaboration tool across my company to drive better connectivity and efficiency. We primarily use the docs feature, but have also experimented in project management and dash-boarding. The tool is easy to use and fairly streamlined.
  • Synchronizes files to a central online portal.
  • Empowers collaboration across the company.
  • Drives accountability through collaborative features.
  • Clean, simple, easy-to-use interface.

  • Better branding to make the tool feel on more respective to a company's brand.
  • Could use some Powerpoint and Excel-like features, to be more competitive with Google's products.
  • Better charting.
Quip enables productivity and collaboration for companies small and big. It's easy to use, intuitive and stable. It's got great collaboration features that really drive efficiency and accountability. I recommend it for the aforementioned use cases. It's not as strong with charting, slides, Excel, and complex visualizations as some other tools on the market.

Quip is being used across about 30% of the organization primarily as a document collaboration tool. It's quite similar to google docs. It's leveraged for work that needs to be more real-time collaborative vs. email. The @ mention comment feature is used heavily.
  • Single sign-on via Okta.
  • A simple to understand product.
  • Collaboration features such as @ mention commenting.
  • Fairly priced.
  • Could use more differentiation vs. larger incumbent players in this space, such as Google Work Suite
  • More features to make the tool feel more 'on brand' for your particular company.
  • An excel and powerpoint add-in to make it more competitive with other incumbents.
Quip is fine/acceptable as a collaborative document tool -- especially if your company has a strong aversion to Google/Google Work Suite. It's fairly priced, easy to use, and its strong collaborative/social features make partnering cross-functionally easier. However, if your company does not have an aversion to Google, I recommend going to Google Work Suite given the more robust feature set offering.

We use Quip to keep track of client notes, time tracking, and other information that needs to be shared and edited by multiple people at any given time. Most of the people in our organization use Quip at some point or another. It's very similar to GoogleDocs, except more team-focused.
  • Connects our team members with the information we all need.
  • Allows us to make notes and comments for other team members to review.
  • Formatting the documents could be a little more simplified.
Quip is a great way to share documents with other team members in a way that flows effortlessly. One area that it is less appropriate is when you need to have an immediate conversation with someone, or if you need an immediate response from a team member-- scenarios where an instant messaging software would be more appropriate.

Quip has been used by a small team of Salesforce administrators and developers at my organization, as part of our enterprise Salesforce agreement. I've personally used it to keep track of documentation, to-do lists, meeting minutes and general notes, and share and collaborate on them with co-workers with whom I work most closely. Quip allows me to organize my thoughts in a way that is easily readable, editable and shareable, so I can spend less time flipping through various repositories of documentation, and spend more time completing tasks and building solutions.
  • Lists - Quip makes it easy to log your thoughts or tasks into bulleted, numbered or check-boxed lists. You can click checkboxes to mark things off the list, and you can drag and drop single line items to reorder your list very easily. This is especially helpful in prioritizing tasks on the fly.
  • Organization - you can group your documents into various folders, favorite the ones you use most, and track changes and updates to each file. It has a very Slack-y feel to the way things are organized, which I find useful.
  • Sharing - Quip is a very collaborative tool, allowing you to share and edit documents with co-workers, and get notifications when they update or respond on a particular file.
  • 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.
I've found Quip to be extremely useful as a collaborative document sharing platform, moreso even than the Google suite, because the user interface is pleasing and intuitive, and it's much easier to organize and find files. If you prefer the File System Hierarchy style organization of Google Docs, Quip might not be for you - but if you're looking for a new take on organization with a more graphic feel to it, I would recommend giving Quip a try.

I would say Quip is best suited for documents you're sharing or working on with an internal team, especially something that's for reference or a rough draft, since it's not big on formatting. This definitely isn't a platform for making a polished document to show off to customers, etc.

Quip is being used across our entire organization and with a few clients outside as well. Quip solves many problems, saves time with clients that use it to communicate with us so that we don't have emails going back and forth (great for quick requests, etc). Quip is a great hub for our internal information, client information, and even a way to connect a client to a document for increased transparency and important information like sales numbers that are updated daily.
  • Search. Quip has a great search feature. Without it, it would not be the time-saving tool that it is. Why? Because Quip (the way we use it) houses a LOT of information. When I'm looking for a document, I can do a quick search without having to remember what path of folders I put the document in.
  • Client Sharing. I have a particular client whose sales I track every morning from their website. I update this document, which has formulas in it, to calculate all the necessary information that we need and the client is able to access it any time they want to see the numbers which saves the client an immense amount of time.
  • Privacy. My boss particularly likes this area as a small company with no HR department. He can keep employee files so that only he can view them without the risk of other people being able to see them.
  • The search feature is powerful but it could definitely be finetuned. Sometimes it shows results that make me wonder why those particular ones showed up.
  • The update to the dashboard (recent update) happened without us being aware and we had to relearn how to work around the platform.
Quip is perfect for small businesses. I'm sure it would be handy for large businesses as well, but for small businesses, this is a magnificent solution to keep seemingly everything in one place. Also, it's incredibly affordable! There is a free version, but if/when you're ready to upgrade to the paid version, it's not expensive at all.
