CIO Corporate at a non-tech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jul 25 2018

What is most valuable?

The integration with Microsoft Office and the fact that it is in the cloud. Also, it's quite easy to use.

How has it helped my organization?

Users can access their own workgroups and it improves the communication among people, particularly people who have the same task to perform in different locations, in different countries.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a fancier user interface. That is one of the weak points of Yammer.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't use any workgroup tool before Yammer. We adopted Yammer because it was included in the Office 365 toolset. Our most important criteria when selecting a vendor, apart from the product being… more»

What other advice do I have?

Look closely at the Office 365 context you are in, and be sure that the accessibility or the availability of the system will be spread as much as possible throughout the organization. I would rate… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Specifically, my search was related to a tool for employees to communicate to all employees; not really for work-grouping, but more related to one-way communication, top-down, from the HR people to… more»

Senior Manager at a non-tech company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Oct 22 2019

What is most valuable?

The design of the solution is its most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

Yammer shall not stay an independent non integrated service and shall not duplicate what team and outlook services do - it can be the heart of outlook conversations / publishing

What other advice do I have?

I've found Team or Skype for Business are more useful than Yammer. I'd rate the solution three out of ten. I did not find Yammer too useful for my type of business. You cannot sell a Ferrari to someone who does not drive very fast, for example, as they would give Ferrari a low rating because they… more»

Program Manager Change & Communication at a insurance company with 501-1,000 employees
Oct 24 2019

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is that anyone can post anything. It's free and people can do it on their own. They don't have to translate to publish. It's really easy to use the solution.

What needs improvement?

Because we are in Belgium, we have two languages and the program is only in one language. It could have been interesting to have it in both French and in Dutch. We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model. I've heard people say that we have lots of tools for doing things that are quite similar to Yammer. People in our organization don't really understand if they have to go on SharePoint, the internet, or Yammer. My advice to others would be to inform people how to use the tools and the purpose of these tools and give their team training. I'd rate the solution seven… more»

General Manager: Internal Communication at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
Oct 17 2019

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

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. The ability to just be live, I think is very important. You don't want to leave the app to go live. You want to be able to just go live within the app. So I think that their internet streaming ability would be a very good… more»

What other advice do I have?

I'll give it a six out of ten because I'm comparing it to what's out there. It's not the best solution out there. It doesn't compare well to the new tools that are in the market. It's not the best, but it's getting there.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is the communication events. We can set up meetings and events.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see secure communication channels for our group. This solution needs to be integrated with the Microsoft Cloud. This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have a lot of applications for communication, including WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram. In the future, I think that we need to have only one application for communication.
