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?

What needs improvement?

The ability to edit replies to previous posts or answers would be useful. Navigation to different Yammer Groups could be improved. Navigation to external groups could be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I haven't been involved with licensing issues.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Apart from chat programs and discussion lists (e.g., SharePoint, MS Lync, and IBM Sametime), there hasn't been a similar product I've used at work previously.

What other advice do I have?

Undertake a small trial before rolling it out to an enterprise. This will help build interest. Don't attempt to control what gets posted, apart from the usual… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

This was installed when I joined this company.
