If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

SharePoint is well suited in all environments and you can tailor it to your needs. Office 365 E4 will give [you] this platform at no cost and would be more suitable for an enterprise client. I recommend Office 365, as it means less infrastructure costs, go cloud! I honestly cannot think of an inappropriate situation for SharePoint.

Pros

  • Allows you to send emails directly from the target's account
  • Allows you to create tasks
  • Keeping track of notes made is easy
No photo available
  • SharePoint allows us to store and share documents easily, it also has great security settings that allows us to secure documents at a document level without having to create a new drive location for secured documents.
  • Forms, Forms, Forms we love the ability to create a standardize form using InfoPath. This allows us to collect and store needed data that does not always have a document to attach. Forms can be accessed both internally and externally when needed.
  • Workflow what more can I say its a wonderful thing. We are able to send notifications when action is needed, route documents for approval processes and archived documents in accordance with government regulations. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to workflow.
  • Reporting and views are easy to use and create allowing users to create there own reports on the fly when needed.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

The only drawback is the price, it's quite costly to buy and requires Microsoft professionals to run at its peak capabilities. It works very well with large quantities of employees, has powerful search capabilities and a huge community. However it might not be a good fit for smaller companies who don't handle a large number of documents and employees and who don't exert high security requirements.

A lot of users can give you many great ideas how to cleverly use SharePoint's core functionality to implement almost any process you need. It is very sturdy, never crashes. Many applications and third party solutions are built for SharePoint so even customization without Microsoft programming skills is rather easy and low cost.

We never actually used Microsoft support. We mostly use forums, user groups and Google to handle issues.

None. We considered K2 however, too expensive so far. We selected SharePoint because it came years ago with a subscription and we needed a collaboration platform to begin with.

It is extremely simple to share, within our department and even with other departments, things we have been working on. Formatting is not an issue when we are sharing and that is a big life saver.

It’s extremely simple to merge forms from different platforms to different types of sources! There is no lag so that is a huge help when you are in a hurry and have no time to spare.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Since this was a part of our Office 365 subscription it was more of a bonus for us. The biggest ROI is that we are now able to transfer this work from email to a website.
  • It has given us the ability to allow outside collaborators to quickly see and make changes to the overall flow of work in each department.
  • Our users love the ability to feel safe that their collaborated work is safe and secure and that even if there are changes made on accident they will not have to start over. It's also a much more visual way to see the changes and who made them for accountability.
