Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It's extremely intuitive.""The most valuable features is its design documentation abilities.""There is a good library of templates for a wide range of needs.""What I like the most is the Wiki software that comes with Atlassian Confluence.""It has a very intuitive user interface, which every user able to manage the basic functionality of a PC will be able to work with and produce quite satisfactory results.""With respect to our experiences with Confluence, we haven't had any issues.""It is easy to use.""The integration's very good. You still have integration with lots of third party products, and it's very good."

"We are able to handle more than one hundred POs at any given time with their shipping docs and info, with only one person in charge."

More Jive Pros »

Cons
"Atlassian should rethink its withdrawal of the self-hosted version of the product. They only offer cloud-based service or the "datacenter-edition", which is quite expensive for small companies and private users.""It would be good if they can continue working towards making documentation and editing as quick and easy as possible. It has got a lot of capability, but I don't know how to use it. I don't find some of the things that intuitive. Sometimes, it doesn't seem obvious to me how to use it, but it is like learning any new tool. You actually need to get trained on the tool to get maximum out of it.""Some aspects of the drawing perspective could be improved. When we upgrade a design and make technical architecture drawings to publish, we still use Visio first and then copy and paste it. If this feature were available on Confluence, it would be a useful tool.""The UI is good but bland. It could be updated a bit to make it more modern and interesting to look at.""This is kind of by design, however, the lack of control in terms of editing the page to make it look the way you want it to look is an issue. It would be nice if there was more flexibility there.""The product should have a workflow with approvals out-of-the-box.""It would be interesting if they had graphical templates that allowed typical agile ceremonies to be documented better.""I would like to see integration with Slack."

"The search engine could be improved and also provide some kind of indexing."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price of the on-premises data center version is too expensive.""When you purchase this solution you get some support.""The issues I have with the pricing are in respect to the add-ons.""For us, it's free to use. We don't pay any licensing."
