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.

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.

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

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.

Working with different teams on different projects.

Pros

It has an intuitive and simple interface. Plus an excellent loading speed and the possibility to collaborate with different teams on various projects.

Cons

Like with so many project management services, it's easy to set up but there is no set up to make sure team members come back to it and keep the content up to date.

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.

Imagine you are managed team tasks, job efforts and want to track those changes online, easily, then Quip is your answer. You can see live edits in Excel sheets and many

Cons

There isn't much I don't like about this, if you hate having to email around different versions of an Excel sheet and want one source of truth to access this, and control access to the documents, then use Quip

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.

being able to make 'to do' lists, view, update and share them constantly within the company as well as external companies and suppliers.

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.

Quip provides unique ability to create, edit and share highly customized documents/spreadsheets. Quip doesn't have a structure to follow for project management, so it requires a lot of upfront time commitment and development. However, after creating the needed documents and templates, it is the perfect tool.
Specifically, great to use for mind-mapping, checklists, embedded spreadsheets/tracking.

Pros

Integrates with Google Drive, version control, file attachment, collaboration, custom templates, slack integration, flexibility, permissions control, great interface, easy to use

Cons

No internal task delegation/planning features, no report building

Advice to Others

Give it a try, it is well worth the money and provides flexibility for a whole range of projects and tasks.

I've spent a lot of time navigating the endless world of Google productivity tools and at times I'm met with more frustration than productivity, mostly related to scale and having a large number of contributors. Quip makes that easy with a sleek canvas feel and an easy-on-the-eyes way of organizing. Sometimes less is more and I've found that simple has boosted productivity for myself and my teams and collaboration is at an all-time high. The one drawback I have is somewhat of a challenge: when collaboration and comments spike there should be a better way to filter through the noise, as it can get a bit stifling keeping track of all the conversations. Thread/forum type implementation perhaps?

Pros

Sleek look, ease of use, organization

Cons

Filtering/presentation of comments/collaboration, lack of slide deck feature

Quip is my team's go to utility for writing documents together. Google Docs is probably one of the most well known cloud based document editors that facilitates collaboration between team members. However, its collaborative elements always seemed tacked on. You can tell that Quip was built to be a team writing tool from the ground up.

Pros

Ease of use. It's "stupid easy" to invite people to collaborate on a document. Comments are a breeze. Paragraphs auto-lock when you are editing them to avoid confusion. You can track your team members usage.

Cons

I wish that reviewing, version control, and security were stronger.

The inclusion of approval processes and flows would be extremely welcome.

Advice to Others

Try it out! It's so easy.

This might not be the tool of choice for a large org with very detailed processes, but it is probably perfect for your team to get together (online) to write something.
