IBM® Verse® is an analytics-based communications and collaboration platform. Unlike regular email, it analyzes your work patterns and helps you prioritize. Information, people and tasks are presented through a personalized, clutter-free interface that anticipates what you need, when you need it — you don’t need to go through your email and calendar to figure it out. IBM Verse also integrates collaboration capabilities like instant messaging, file sharing and connections to social networks. You can operate IBM Verse from the cloud or an IBM Domino® server, from your desktop or virtually any mobile device.

"IBM Verse - Fastest Mail Client"

What do you like best?

IBM Verse in the cloud or on Premises is the fastest Mail Client I have ever used, and I tried many (Gmail, Outlook, etc.). It is extremely responsive and easy to use. Hands down it saves me a lot of time at work.

I like how the "Search" is implemented and how the development team made it easy to use and user friendly. It packs a lot of features which other Mail Clients are lacking, so simple and yet extremely efficient.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the fact that you cannot customize it at this point, Next Version will bring new branding capability, I guess we have to wait a bit more to get that sorted out.

At this point you can not use ICS Files, this is also coming in the new Version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out, it is easy to implement and maintain, do not miss this jewel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is fast like Hell and it saves time. It helps me organize and be more Produktive throughout the day.

"Helpful on the go with room for improvement"

What do you like best?

Being able to manage my work emails while on the go and see my calendar in great detail. A great feature is that the app will combine a thread of emails into a group that you can easily navigate one after another.

What do you dislike?

The inability to use same time chat with my colleagues and see the chat history. I would also like to see the profile images of my work contacts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Being able to monitor work activity after work in case I need to take action in emergency situations

- Preparing for meetings in the morning that I had forgotten beforehand

- Being notified whenever I receive an email and I am not near my computer

"IBM Verse Review "

What do you like best?

Ability to view other people's calendars. Smartcloud Notes Web mail view.

What do you dislike?

IBM Verse mail view. The fact that Smartcloud Notes Web doesn't always work smoothly as it is not the recommended viewing portal for mail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that Outlook or Gmail is more agile, but Verse is sufficient for most business purposes. Having used Outlook and Gmail for business email purposes in the past, I must admit I prefer their software and find it more user-friendly on the whole. Verse takes a little while to get used to using it, as a platform it is quite different from others and navigating around it can feel rather clunky. However, I find that using the Smartcloud Notes Web helps to improve the overall experience for using the mail functionality. The software defaults to IBM Verse mail view, which I do not like so much. Calendar functionality is good because it enables you to view other people's calendars, but poor in that once somebody declines a meeting invitation, if they do not click on a very small 'keep me notified' button then they do not receive a notification when the meeting is rescheduled to a time that does work in their diaries.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Only this week we discovered the sharing screen remote meeting functionality, which is a great tool.

"Has a lot of potential "

What do you like best?

The best thing is that, it is Cloud based.

Now you can access your emails and calendar on the move from anywhere.

There's a lot of work put in from IBM and it shows in the tool performance as well. It’s super fast in searching through emails. It’s inbuilt chat feature is another great addition to normal email client.

What do you dislike?

It should be able to integrate with other email clients as well to export their email format. There should be options available to customize it like in other email clients. The interface needs little time to get familiar, not the most simplest design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saves a lot of time. The inbuilt chat feature really makes a difference.

It’s easily accessible from anywhere.

"IBM Verse is too complicated"

What do you like best?

The IBM Verse app is the most helpful part of this software. IBM has great tech masters on the development end for sure. Our employees use the app. IBM offers very helpful consultations about Verse as well.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike the cluttered nature of this software. It claims to be not cluttered, but it is indeed. It is confusing for newer employees and they end up communicating less effectively than before.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it. It starts out with a big learning curve but its worth the price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We organized everyone's communication on the same platform which was helpful but would be more helpful with a clearer platform. The benefits of this are large as it is easier to organize everyone.

"ibm, vintage is best"

What do you like best?

I like the brand name, reputability, stability. They know about computers before all of the changes yet have kept up and re branded themselves.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. I like what they stand for and how they operate. I don't like that they are more geared toward corporations vs independent professionals

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are seeking a new way to email, aggregate email information overload, then IBM Verse would be very helpful. They are a very reliable brand and their service is spot on, going from building machines, to integrating software and now enhancing email services with Verse.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Email communications are smoother and more realistic even if remote.

"Average"

What do you like best?

It is a pretty sleek browser-based version to use LotusNotes. It is relatively easy to use and the complexity is nicely hidden.

What do you dislike?

It still needs work on some basic functionality. For example, I found it difficult to share calendar entries. I also could not add an external calendar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is relatively cheap, but missing features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

General use of email and calendar. The benefits are self explanatory.
