9 of 0 - 10 | published 9/4/2013

TrustRadius Review Summary

Nonprofit uses Yammer for internal communications and chat, and also as a platform to teach employees about social media. Product is very easy to use and provides real value, but continued access to a free version is important.

Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Yammer

Great tool, wish they had alternate pricing structures. 
  • Chat feature.
  • Integrate with other programs.
  • Serve as a platform to teach new users how to use social media.
  • Make communications less formal than email.
  • No longer connects to gchat or outlook
  • Makes management more difficult in the free version
  • Improving communications
  • maximizing our internal power to promote intiatives and a few others-- but Yammer was the best. 
As long as they have a free version -- we'll use it-- and if they change the way they charge we would probably upgrade.

Using Microsoft Yammer

150 - Marketing to program staff- but only about 20 people use it every day. 
  • Internal Communications.
  • Chat for coworkers.
  • Backend Organizing.

Evaluating Microsoft Yammer and Competitors

n/a just the web version and what's available through the free version.

They won't negotiate their pricing structure so it makes it unlikely for us to purchase.
