The solution allows users to send instant personal and group messages to their colleagues.

I tried out Alma Suite as an affordable alternative to the JIRA/Confluence stack produced by Atlassian (which is the reigning champion for many Agile software developers).

The irony is I found Alma Suite to actually be superior to JIRA and Confluence in three ways:
1. A useful iPhone app.
2. A non-ugly interface
3. Seamless integration between the communication and project management aspects of the software

Basically, Alma Suite benefits from being built from the bottom up, rather than being a bug-tracking-tool-turn-insansely-priced-project-management tool.

That said, Alma Suite could definitely benefit from some fleshing out in its project management capabilities. But given time I could see Alma Suite being the "soul" of many a successful company.

Pros

- Insanely good value from the price
- Good iPhone App
- Great suite of tools

Cons

- Needs more functionality for project management ("Task") tools
- There needs to be a clearer distinction between the "Wiki" and "Ideas" areas. They are too similar.

We are mid size company with the classic communication struggles. We have tried a couple of other platforms before, but Alma Suite has proven to deliver better engagement. I mean... is not perfect, and there are things to improve. But the fact that is super easy to use and that integrates a few features into one app, helps a lot!

Pros

The fact that is really intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

Would like to have some other functions to fully fit our companies requeriment.

Advice to Others

If you need to be fully connected and aware of the comittment of your employees, then Alma Suite is a great tool.

Alma allowed our teams located in several countries to interact and collaborate with minimum friction. This tool was a key asset in our research and developement culture and allowed communication to flow within our organization, minimizing unnecessary meetings. I definetly recommend the use of this tool

Pros

Cons

Its not free, like other products alike

We are a small business with 70-80 employees. Usually we gather on multiples meetings and try to align the strategy of the business from the core to the mass, but it`s really difficult to impact on every single employee and make them compromise. Plus the time that consume for us to traspas the knowledge is quite important. For that, Alma Wikipedia has proveen very effective, just like the Games (Trivias). The Task Manager could use some upgrades, but is Easy to use..

We started using Alma Suite 3 months ago, we use Wiki to document our onboarding processes as well as client engagement processes. We use Ideas to document all ideas for marketing experiments and rate for each idea to prioritize which experiment we start implementing

Pros

The ideas module is awesome, it is quite a unique tool .. we have 100s of ideas everyday and using spreadsheets to manage them was too messy

Cons

Lack of integration with google drive
