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.

Pros

Very modern looking. Everything is where you'd expect it to be, and when used correctly, this software can greatly improve communication between departments and coworkers in your company.

Cons

Custommer Support doesn't always respond right away, but when they do, they're basically always able to help you out

A refreshing way to collaborate and communicate in document creation

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.

Pros

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.

Pros

Quip gave to our company the possibility to communicate in real time and easily work with any documents and stuff like this within the chat. We used to communicate with each other in our company with using only emails, but now I can say that it was extremely waste of time and we significantly raised our effectiveness after starting chatting in real time with notifications. It is also affordable for every operative system and devices, so doesn’t matter where you are, it isn’t necessary to stay near the computer to continue working.

Cons

The problem that I see here is a lack of necessary integrations, in such software must be easily integrated very popular services to simplify your work process, but now, unfortunately, I don’t see that abilities that I need, I hope this side of this tool will be improved.

Pros

This is an excellent document editor, which includes a messaging service. I like that several employees can see all the information and edit it, and the data on the changes are not lost. Also, we can see the entire history of the change of documents. You can open access to documents only to individual employees or select a list of employees who can edit the document. Also, I like that my data is available anywhere there is an internet connection.

Cons

The document overview is confusing, sorting options are only available in list view mode. Also in the documents, there are few functions for work, I would like to see more options. By the way, I dont understand why Quip can't use a custom keyboard on the iOS mobile app.

Pros

I found that Quip satisfies my needs in a convenient application for working with clients that do not intend to spend time studying a complex program. It is used by several people whom I respect and trust, and they advised me of this program. The fact that they have a free version for a small group is the ideal way to test it. With Quip, we were able to shorten our emails, and we can see what changes were made. He even sends you a notification when something is updated.

Cons

You need a more effective integration with Dropbox or Google Drive. There is no direct link, so if you update the document in your online store, it will not be automatically updated in Quip. There is no built-in support for PDF files. It converts them into JPG images, which can be slow and clunky.

Pros

Quip is a program that contains a large number of functions. All the necessary information for work can be stored in the cloud of service, and all employees can find the necessary document themselves. With Quip you can communicate with employees in live chat, also you can create and edit documents together. I really like the role settings feature. Since we have many employees in our team, not all of them have full access to all documents in the cloud; I can easily set priorities and visibility of documents for different users.

Cons

Unfortunately, when I open a document or read a large number of messages in a chat, the mobile application of the program runs slowly. In the rest, simply perfect service.

Pros

Having used numerous web based team management / task management toolsets, I enjoyed the fluidity of quip, as it was very interpretuve to my style.

Cons

The same things that I liked were hard for others to embrace as tbey were more used to task driven platforms than collaboration driven platforms

There are alerts that get generated every time a change is made - the only way to turn these alerts off is for each user to manually go in and do it themselves. They should have the alerts function at the document level

Great for small teams on the go to keep in touch and collaborate on open projects!

Pros

The mobile experience is great for this app. I've used quite a few collaboration but quip was the only one that seemed to be really mobile friendly. The organization options are great (folders, time tracking, etc) and the ability to comment and rope other people in from the organization is great as it really does cut back on emails!

Cons

It can be very consuming to use if it's not your main collaboration tool. I believe for this to work well, it needs to have a significant uptake and be the main tool rather than just another in the mix.

I was able to use this app effectively to collaborate with a client and her team to produce a fairly complex website. All of us enjoyed the ability to easily add documents, images and other files, and to comment wherever we wanted, and to chat wherever we wanted. Search function was quite powerful, and necessary. However....see below.

Cons

I had to struggle to get the client to use the software as she and her team found the interface confusing and overwhelming in spots. Without the search box, we would have lost track of where comments were made. Chats can strewn all over the place and no one knew exactly where to chat. Too many choices. Eventually, I tried out Asana, and now have settled on Slack.

Pros

Group chats and file sharing are a lifesaver. No one likes group texts, they're annoying and don't carry over well between mobile platforms. With Quip, we can share a group chat that isn't annoying. File sharing helps when people are out of the office. We're always on the go and being able to send things back and forth without it getting lost in email is wonderful. Getting everyone together for meetings is almost always impossible with our crazy schedules and we never manage to pass the info around to everyone. This way we can send it out to everyone and know it was received. The to-do list function helps keep me organized.

Cons

The price. At some point you start wondering is it really worth the price of every additional app and software you need. We have 20 something people, that adds up real quick. Much more cost effective for a smaller team.

Collaboration, simple cloud-based tool, integration with Salesforce

Pros

It's super easy to start using and is great for shared documents where you need to have multiple people providing input and updates. I like that two people can be simultaneously working on a document without a problem.

Cons

My annoyances with this software stem from the features - what is there and what is not there. One of my biggest gripes is that Quip believes it is "distracting and not necessary" (their words) to have the option of changing the color of the text. I disagree. As a business professional for the past 25 years, I can tell you there are instances where you need to color code text. I recently had a huge, very collaborative project that I wanted to base out of Quip and THE ONLY REASON I couldn't use Quip was because it had to be color coded and Quip doesn't do that. I've tried appealing to them but so far, no luck. Yet, one apparently "necessary" feature is that you can add an emoji or animated meme to your comments within a document. Really? And that is more important for business communications? I'm guessing this software is being created by a bunch of millennials. I don't begrudge millenials or the "fun" elements that are included, but give me the useful business functionality we have all become accustomed to over the past couple of decades if you truly want to compete for our word processing and spreadsheet needs.

Pros

I like the fact that multiple people can see all information and edit without things getting lost. it also has some useful features.

Cons

its not particularly attractive, not a major concern but it just looks outdated. It would also benefit from a 'help' button being available for all users all the time.
