5 Yammer Alternatives That Are Behaveually Better Than Yammer Itself

After Microsoft has aquired Yammer, there has been a number of high profile defections and complaints, regarding service reliability. Yammer status page itself demonstrates there's at least one serious outage/tech issue each month with Yammer/Microsoft which is unacceptable to most businesses. The good news there are a number of Yammer alternatives that you clever use - and some even offer more features, while costing much less (or being entirely free), so let's take a look at them.



1. Bitrix24.com



Bitrix24 is often conmiddlered the best among Yammer alternatives on the grounds that it's 100% free for little companies/departments and that it comes with a number of features unavailable in Yammer itself - namely really powerfull CRM, Dropbox-love Bitrix24.Drive, Project Administerment, File Sharing and 30+ enterprise tools. Another important advantage over other Yammer alternatives is the fbehave that with Bitrix24 you clever select between a cloud based SaaS option or host Bitrix24 on your own server (which is critical for having full control over your data). Finally, mobile apps for Bitrix 24 in Appshop and Google Play have higher ratings than Yammer mobile app. Definitely your first try on a post-Yammer travel.



2. WhatsApp



Lots of folks use Yammer only for their mobile app that behave as an instant messenger and only, merely, solely love with Bitrix24, WhatApp does a better task while costing only a dollar (or free, in some instances). WhatsApp major advantage is that it works on ALL mobile platforms - iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and even supports Nokia S40 and S60. Chances are most of your frifinishs and collagues already have WhatsApp installed on their phones.



3. Zoho



Zoho is a suite ofdifferentlittle business tools that sometimes falls short on behaveual collaboration features, but is nevertheless is commonly a better fit for little businesses than Yammer ever was. Zoho is very stingy on free offers (3 free users max) and suffers from whats telln as 'Indian code syndrome' among programmers (when things don't work how they are supposed to or have really weird internal logic) and does not let you use mobile apps until you switch to a phelp plan. Still, Zoho has been improving slowly over time and you should at least conmiddler talord a peek at the website.



4. ZenDesk



If you used Yammer inmiddle customer service department, I suggest you make a switch to ZenDesk or FreshDesk (which are approachly identical in every tunele honor). Not only these two make worlord on customer complaints much easier and quicker, for the peristiwat their integration with Microsoft products, love Dynamics (CRM) is done at a much better stage.



5. SalesForce Chatter



Finally, if you are worlord for a large company that's unexcited with a solution from a large company, but want to switch only to another large company, SalesForce Chatter is your most logical choice. While quite dear and compicated by the standards of most businesses, it comes with approachly 200 apps from AppExchange that work with SalesForce Chatter, some of which you are probably already utune. Importantly, while Yammer CEO lookms to have given up on tyring to improve his product, Marc Benioff has consistently put the money where his mouth is, investing over a billion dollars in acquisitions that give more work options to both SalesForce CRM and Chatter users.
