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 most valuable feature of this solution is the communication events.""The integration with Teams is the biggest value for us. In fact, it has only become more valuable now that it has integration with Teams. Teams allows you to stream, so that's good.""The design of the solution is its most valuable feature.""It's really easy to use the solution.""The initial setup was simple and straightforward.""The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."

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 »

"This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.""The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it.""Yammer should be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook.""We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.""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."
