Quip Software


 

Quip is a cloud-based project management and task collaboration solution that help users work together and communicate without emails. Users can create and edit spreadsheets, documents and checklists in the system, and team members can chat and comment on files in real time. The solution is also available for on-premise deployment.

With Quip’s team chat feature, users can create different chat rooms on different topics, and there are discussion threads for each document. Users can attach documents to chats, and the document will appear by the chat, so users can chat and view documents at once. Quip’s task list offers personal to-do lists, project milestones and priorities lists and allows users to check off finished tasks. When tasks are checked off, other team members are automatically informed.

Quip offers dedicated apps for iOS and Android. Users can also work offline, and documents can be synced in the system when internet connection gets re-established.

Quip is available on a monthly subscription basis that includes support via email and phone.

It was honestly one of the better experiences I've had getting a team set up on a platform they'd never used. Seems good for the not-so-techie folks out there.

Pros

So. Easy. To. Use.

Quip helped a remote team get organized, share and store marketing materials, research and other company data.

Cons

We ran into issues with some of the documents we wanted to create, because the formatting options in Quip are extremely spartan.

Easy to create files and documents and not much of a learning curve. It is pretty straight-forward with file sharing and organization.

This didn't work well for what I was trying to do. Integrations are complicated if even possible and it runs pretty slow.

Quip and Quip for Salesforce

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Quip is a great addition for any company with its easy to use style of collaboration and flexibility in security and structure. I'd like to see a lot more training videos on how to leverage Quip for things like Project Management to plant those seeds and help companies grow and realize the full potential of this application.

Pros

Salesforce recently added Quip to it's suite of products and we couldn't be happier. We have been searching for a project management application as well as a solution for sharing documents and data while not housing inside our Salesforce org, due to storage limitations. We see Quip as being that all in one application that can solve many of these needs in our organization. It is powerful, flexible, offers free and paid apps like a project management app and allows for flexibility with security of files and folders. Not to mention the live chat and collaboration features it offers. A great all around solution for anything you can't already solve in your standard Salesforce Org.

Cons

I have requested several specific demos from our sales team so that we can more fully realize what Quip can do to meet some of our more basic needs. We've been given links to sales demos which don't address our specific needs. Once we get an idea on what we can do with it and how, it will drive more ideas and creativity for our team, we're just having a hard time getting started.

Quip is very helpful in everyday living in terms of work, family, friends or even to have acquaintance at a business conference. It also helps you communicate with your customers and make a loyal customer-consumer relation. Quip have many apps for project tracking, calendar, working with Salesforce records, which is very exciting to explore.

Pros

Quip can be download any device, accessible to all as long as you have internet connection. It's a messaging platform with a super powerful tool to access documents that can add comments and live-editing real time updating at the same time you have the ability to highlight portions of a document. I love chatting to my friends. It's very good in my daily living because it really helps me communicate with one another and make the acquaintance of to come into also kind a social contact with. If it weren't for this app I would be completely isolated when I am grounded.

Cons

There's only one thing I wish Quip can help me and that is to be acquaintance to someone I like. Quip will bring me to what I'm aiming the most- the stars of my future. Enjoy using Quip. It never disappointment me.

A refreshing way to collaborate and communicate in document creation

Ease-of-use

N/A

The big takeaway is that Quip uniquely enables you and your colleagues to create a multi-asset document in one place, together.

Pros

Quip enables users to build a rich, multimedia, and multi-asset document in one location. Do you need to create a document that includes a calendar, spreadsheet, and kanban board all in the same place? Quip can do that.

Cons

While the interface has improved recently, it is still a little difficult to navigate from your document to the folder in which it is contained. Also, Quip could make better use of icons for identifying content types.

I like that when edits are made to a document that those with access to it are immediately notified of any changes. In addition I like there is running history of the changes that were made to the document.

Cons

The copy/paste feature was not as robust. When I attempted to copy content from one source into the Quip doc the formatting was difficult to fix especially where bullets were used to define the content.

Unlimited free trial and great for text-based collaboration

Pros

Quip allows you to try their platform for free as long as you need, so you can really figure out whether or not it works for your team before you invest in the paid version. Compared to other products that have a time-limited free trial, Quip offers a much better evaluation period.

Cons

The ability to upload images and PDFs is limited at best. It's easier to upload a photo album on Facebook and share it with your team than it is to do the same thing in Quip. Great for text based documents, however.

In my organization,I get to work with multiple people from different locations.Quip provides me with a single platform via which I can collaborate with everyone ,and monitor what everyone is doing : instead of spending hours sorting through torns of email threads.

Pros

I like the version control quality which Quip affords me and how I can restore previous versions of any document,if someone makes a mistake on the updated version.It is easily accessible as I get to use it on my mobile phones and laptop.
I like the effectiveness of its search functionality because it makes it so easy to search through tons of files automatically,thereby eliminating the need to go through files one after another.

Cons

The user interface is not intuitive for me and I encounter issues navigating around this program.I also experiencing obstacles opening the web page from my mobile app.

Has nice plugins to draw, have spreadsheets, many others - makes it easy to edit and share. comments can be addressed in one place, and that's great for shared documents.

Cons

Many many features are missing when compared to other document editing softwares like docs or word. It is not exactly an apples to apples comparison, but not very different either. It is lightweight and easy to share, notes can be made well, but not great when it comes to organizing things like oneNote does. It does not give the feel of a notebook, nor an editor - it is almost somewhere in the middle not being sure of which functionality to focus on.

Quip takes the concept of Slack one step further by combining team communication with document creator. And it's not just any document creator. Other than text document and spreadsheet, users can also create kanban board, calendar, to do list, and more.

I think Quip can do even better by upgrading the spreadsheet into a database. So, you can link the data in one document into another.

To be simple, we really like this easy to use collaboration tool.

Pros

So easy to collaboration with colleagues, and for family. Get everything together rather than individual files everywhere. "Word", "Excel", "Powerpoint" lite versions, so easy to use, whatever you want. With google account integration. No hassle for account management. You certainly don't expect it to be super powerful, but it is good enough for our purpose.

Cons

Logic of files arrangement a bit confusing. If you are coming from traditional file system. You may need sometime to get used to it. Moving files around is not that easy, especially if you want to manage multiple files at the same time. It used to be annoying that recent editing panel shows up every time you open the application. Recent updates fix this problem.
