Overall Satisfaction with Abstract

Abstract helps us maintain version management of the design files. It is especially useful for teams to work on the same files in parallel. The idea of using Git to keep your design resources up to date and working is brought to life by Abstract. It is one of the best tools for a designer to maintain and rollback to various versions of their design and nothing is ever lost.
  • Branch management for design files.
  • Good collaborative features like comments and sharing.
  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.
  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.
There are very few tools that compete with Abstract right now. I would say none of them are even close to this yet.
Good training tutorials. Responsive customer service if you are a corporate account holder.

Do you think Abstract delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Abstract's feature set?

Yes

Did Abstract live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Abstract go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Abstract again?

Yes

Abstract is very useful for decently sized design teams, but might not be as useful for single designers. It is also only to be used within the design team for work management and sharing with anyone outside the design team is not advised. I personally find it useful to maintain archives of work in the cloud that I can access from anywhere. It also helps maintain a hygienic work structure.
