Janine W.

It is easy to adopt Unily as an enabling technology to facilitate enterprise knowledge management

2017-10-11

Centralised area to connect the global enterprise and reduce silos. Notifications help reduce email.

Pros

Straightforward to administrate via permission control.

Cons

I rely heavily on metadata to drive the search, navigation and tagging in Unily.

Unily - Changing the face of our Company-wide intranet

2020-09-07

That said, we have not made our 'go live' journey particularly easy since we have had to change our phased launch plan to a more immediate solution in order to support employees through the Coronavirus challenges, whilst preparing ourselves for a large acquisition and going through some significant business transformation.

Pros

In general the CMS is straightforward and intuitive to use and enables the administrator to create inclusive, consistent, eye catching and engaging content relatively quickly and easily.

Cons

It is fine for storing documents but unless the Global Search is initiated it's not the easiest method of locating a document when you have a lot of document content on the site.

Engaging, intuitive, flexible

2017-12-28

Pros

Ability to reflect our brand perfectly I didn't think we could create such an impactful intranet that easily!

Cons

Metadata - the platform relies on this for drop down lists and tagging content, so I spent days creating lists.

An easy an extremely configurable out-of-the-box product that continues to grow with us!

2020-09-17

Our Customer Success Managers helped us and guided us through the whole set-up process: from the kick-off workshop, including the design labs, training, technical requirements, integration with Office 365 - all the way up to launch.

Pros

Also the technology that allows to machine-translate all of the content is amazing!

Cons

Some customizations require knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to make full use of them and although Unily can integrate with Yammer and MS Teams there are only a few widgets available for these two applications.

Unily have provided us exactly what we were looking for our Digital Workplace: Connecting our employees through their In-house social network, integrating office 365 features in one place, bringing a powerful search engine across Office 365 and empowering our colleagues to take the floor through insights and news.

Pros

The in-house social network is straight forward which makes the difference to increase the adoption of our users across the company.

AI could be brought to personalize content and experience.

Good product that is being continuously improved.

2017-10-10

- Improved collaboration and connection of our employees across the world - Improved knowledge sharing - Engaging platform

Pros

Ease of use, straightforward navigation, customisation, personalisation and incorporation of Yammer groups.

Cons

CMS needs to become more user friendly, in particular uploading/adjusting images and search for individual images, as well as options to structure a news item with bullet points, images, etc. to make them look more engaging.

Be informed. Get connected. Get the job done. Unily helps our organization to enter the digital era.

2017-10-24

Pros

State-of-the-art Intranet Solution that helps to broadcast communication content, allows collaboration within teams & communities and is the launchpad to other processes & applications of our company.

Cons

It changes the "old-days" approach to software projects. With the Unily Evergreen Roadmap we now face the fact that you want to be automatically in the move to strieve for the next big thing to enter your organization. Not really a "con", but an organizational challenge.

Internal comms brought into the modern day!

2020-09-10

Working with Unily has been fantastic; our CSM is brilliant, always available to help with anything and responds quickly with solutions. The product is constantly being updated, they listen to your suggestions and implement them. The features are great and it has really helped improve our internal engagement.

Pros

The software is so easy to use, the functionality is first class and the possibilities seem to be endless.

Cons

The only thing I would say, is that it would be good if the mobile app could be customised to reflect internal branding, as this is an extra cost.

Beyedebase Unily

2021-01-01

Globally am satisfied to Unily because it is customizable to our needs and easily synchronized with Sharepoint.

Pros

The intranet software makes work easier and enhances knowledge, thus strengthening effective collaboration.

Cons

Some features of Microsoft Office are missing as well as a widget for birthdays. The CMS has a small problem in addition is extremely defective the synchronization of SharePoint/Unily software is painful.

Working with Unily

2020-09-16

This objective is certainly being met with the excellent search facility provided by the platform.

Pros

After sales is also very good and having your own Client Services Manager (CSM) makes you feel more than just a number on the provider's database. The search facility on the platform is excellent and the provider strives for ongoing improvement and upgrades which keeps Unily ahead of the game.

Cons

Some Microsoft Office features are missing. Also missing is a birthday widget, which was very popular within our Business.

Extremely Disappointed

2019-08-13

I have launched websites before and never worked with a CMS this glitchy. We frequently experience issues with basic functionality. Although we have a designated support team of a project manager and tech specialist, the help we receive for these problems is inconsistent. Sometimes they are able to get back to us right away, and other times there's radio silence and we have to follow up. Over the past 8 weeks we have submitted over a dozen "support tickets" because of the simple technical issues that keep popping up. We are extremely disappointed. The online reviews of Unily are stellar but our experience has been a nightmare. I would definitely not recommend this product and I wish we could go back and select another option, but now we've done so much work on this that there's no way we can start over.

Pros

We liked that the software was (supposedly) customizable to our needs and synced with Sharepoint.

Cons

-The CMS is extremely glitchy, unreliable, and prone to "bugs" -The Sharepoint/Unily software syncing was extremely difficult -We had to figure out many of these glitches ourselves, with very light support from Unily -The dozens of technical issues resulted in our delaying launch of our website by two extra months

Unily Review by Mowi

2020-09-16

It has been a good experience - onboarding was thorough and the continued support is as expected. The service centre (Brightstar) experience could be improved.

Pros

The user interface is clean and easy to navigate.

Cons

The software has had many glitches over the year, causing many wasted hours for employees of Mowi to recognise and fix. I believe that the supplier should be running a QC to catch these glitches before the end user does.

A good experience, it's been easy to use and has been a great way to communicate

Pros

The broadcast centre has been invaluable, the use of images and nice layout have made our internal newsletters much more eye catching and engaging

Cons

Building widgets has been a challenge, but I understand this will get much easier with the next update.

Overall - a good experience

2017-10-11

Pros

Easy to use as a tool.

Cons

Because it's software as a service it's very prone to bugs - this can get frustrating. I would like to be able to customise more things myself - such as formatting and page layout.

Unily

2020-09-18

Great experience so far with Unily - CSM is responsive and always willing to help out, the service now desk is also very useful.

Pros

Easy to use once you get the hang of it.

Cons

Multi-tenancy onboarding could be a lot better, I think we may have been the first customer
