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

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.

The checklisting ability in text is brilliant and helps me to write effective checklists which I can later tick off and check I have done visually.

Formatting spreadsheets within pages can be quite painful. It doesn't resize correctly and you can often spend a lot of time fighting the formatting.

Pros

It's very easy to collaborate on a document. You just add people to it. All the changes are logged so you can see all the things that happen to your document. You can also create all kinds of documents on Quip, from the everyday text document and spreadsheet to the specific kanban board and project tracker (with a little help from Live apps).

Cons

The app lacks the ability to add tags - which will be very helpful to further organize the documents. It also doesn't hurt to add the font-customization feature so that users can set the look and feel of the working environment to their liking.

Pros

Using Quip, it became easy and quick to create documents. The work in the tables is now possible in the team, and now you do not need to send the document to your colleague every time and wait for his corrections, and then also receive it by mail. There is a chat room that allows you to edit documents together. This function helps your work and communication, and also saves a lot of time. Documents made in Quip will be synchronized in one cloud where they can be quickly found, so now we are not afraid to lose them.

Cons

There are a few bugs that you need to fix the development team. I ran into several hangs and crashes when using it, but fortunately, I did not lose any of my work, which pleased me very much. I would like that this did not happen again.

Very easy on the eyes - awesome UI/UX, it's clean and easy to work with, nice and organized. Also like that I can work on mobile too, and everything is stored in the cloud. Group chat is cool too, and there's a countdown which is neat, I haven't seen that anywhere else.

Cons

Expensive. For a small team, it's bit much. On it's own it wouldn't be bad, but there are a bunch of other services needed besides Quip, to run our business so this one got the boot.

Very easy document creation that live updates to all users as you create them. No more messing around uploading and downloading documents.
Documents have lots of options like spreadsheets tables charts, images and other apps that can be inserted into any doc. You can also manage folders and share them with specific groups of people, so you might have a folder for employees which has all your procedures on it and a separate knowledge base for customers.
For free its hard to find a better product

Cons

I would like to see the ability to copy documents between different quip accounts. I'd also like to see direct connections to excel of numbers, to give some more power to some of the features

I was up to produce a highly functional spreadsheet to use as a reporting tool for my upstream management.

Pros

The interface is clean and user-friendly. A novice can create a robust reporting tool for your internal use in less than a week.

Cons

The embedded spreadsheet application has many advanced features.
The Quip spreadsheet has more bells and whistles than I could figure out in one sitting.
Quip's tutorals and customer service staff guided and coached me through the rough spots.

Real-time, flexible, and comprehensive document management. Quip is a great solution for remote teams and collaborators for all kinds of projects and workflows.

Pros

Quip is a very slick real-time document management platform. For remote teams, it's a very capable way to coordinate and edit documents for a wide variety of use cases. I especially like the user management features for bringing in collaborators and other outside partners to work on particular documents. Not only that, but Quip is super flexible, and even integrates into various CRM platforms for even greater capabilities.

Cons

Quip is great, but given the competitors out there, it's a little expensive. This is the one thing I would change about Quip.

Pros

Overall, I intellectually understand the appeal of Quip: It's fast, it's clean, it allows for easy sharing within organizations, and allows for tagging your teammates in-line within docs. It loads quickly, and because there isn't a ton of bloat, it seems to respond quickly and it overall feels lightweight.

It absolutely serves a lot of purposes, and a lot of my colleagues use it as their app of choice when creating new docs, however, for me, I've never gotten over the hump with it.

Cons

I feel like perhaps they missed the boat on some basic UX principles. I can't name them (not a UX designer), but if feels like the app isn't conforming to the norms of UX... the app seems difficult to use, and I work for a tech company, am an early adopter, and usually can easily find my way around any new app.

Additionally, the "conversation" pane is defaulted to always show. Imagine seeing having "tracked" changes from Microsoft word ALWAYS ON - granted it's in a sidebar, but it takes up valuable real estate and is just visually terrifying IMO.

Pros

I like that my data is available wherever there is Internet, and for my work this is not an important factor. You can open access to documents only to individual employees or select a list of employees who can edit the document. The program even sends you a notification when something is updated. Most of the features in the program make our work easier and faster. A good opportunity to see updates to the tables in real time. Keep documents in the cloud and easily required documents at the time of their search and use. In the chat you can discuss what you can change. The program has an excellent interface and three sections: notes, documents and chat. As you can see, the program is really useful for saving your time.

Cons

The mobile application of the program does not always work as fast as it would be desirable. I also want this platform to be able to edit. The copy and paste function was not so reliable. When I tried to copy content from one source to a document in this program, the formatting was difficult to fix.

Productivity, Collaboration, Central repository.

Pros

I use quip mainly to organize my work and collaborate with my team members in documenting feature requirements. Product feature requirements are dynamic - in that, they change often. The ability to have one central location from where all of us can access it makes this a huge time saver for all. It also prevents unnecessary emails as users can chat / comment directly on quip. It also has the ability to create private folders which I use to store work in progress ideas and the ability to restrict access to some files / folders to specific people.

Cons

Quip requires the internet and often I forget that I have to be connected to save changes. Although it has the ability to add spreadsheets, I don't use it much. Also, have noticed when I copy paste code into code-blocks, the pasted content does not fit within the default page-width, but creates a horizontal scroll-bar within the code-block. It's a bit of an irritant to correct that every time.

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

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.

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.

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.
