Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The entire product is good."

More Symphony Pros →

"The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use.""The initial setup was simple and straightforward."

More Yammer Pros →

Cons
"The area that needs to be improved is modular asset management. When we are uploading the assets in bulk, it is not aligned."

More Symphony Cons →

"The product seems to just add to the complexity of using existing tools.""The way you want to control the communication could be an issue. It depends on what kind of company you are. We are a public company, and there are some regulations that we need to comply with. Its ease of use can be an issue for a company because anybody can subscribe and use it. There are many competitors that are overlapping. Since Microsoft bought Yammer, it tends to be in the shadow. It is not put in the front from the service perspective."

  • "I don't know about the pricing. Now that Microsoft has bought Yammer, it should be a part of our subscriptions for Office 365."
