Specific scenarios where Communifire would be well suited to an organisation, would be companies that are people focused and committed to frequent and open communication channels from both the top-down and bottom-up. It also would suit organizations that are committed to providing the staff opportunities to collaborate, share and actively contribute to company initiatives and planning. If these aren't elements of your organization's culture, the system would still work for you or those companies who just want to push information out and have an effective intranet. Communifire would cater to these scenarios just as well and is more than capable of providing that type of simple solution.

Pros

Axero

  • Communifire allows people to connect easily through instant chat and messaging. It works similarly to other social media platforms like Facebook so its not hard to learn.
  • Communifire makes it easy to share news and events with our community and the presentation of this information looks very professional.
  • I found Communifire quite easy to configure to our individual needs. There were a lot of options to turn things on or off. This was important to us because in some areas of our community we wanted to allow our contractors many features and in other areas we wanted to really limit what was on offer.
  • We had a big list of things we needed a platform to do. Communifire ticked all the boxes.

  • Content Storage - Gives great features that allow you to house content, images, documentation, spreadsheets, and other assets in a well organized manner
  • Privacy Settings - Does a great job of ensuring that you can customize very specifically how you want your content accessed, read, by whom, and takes into consideration how sensitive your data is
  • Ease of Access - Because MS Sharepoint is part of the Office 365 suite, it's very easy for users accross the entire organization to access Sharepoint direction from their web browser

Cons

Axero

  • Some UX issues that could be improved
  • Some architecture decisions don't make complete sense to me (though that's just one man's opinion)
Col Fink | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

  • It does take some work to get your setup to be as graphical as modern design tends to be.
  • Overlapping calendars are great but they do take some time investment to create.
  • Depending on how many project or teams you work with it can get a little overwhelming to have so many different groupings.

Our business depends upon this software to provide information on all aspects of our business. The future of business is a marriage between web site and customer interaction. This software will allow us to move in that direction.

It's integral to our business. It's already included with most of the Office 365 licensing we buy, so the cost is effectively zero. It stores our files, it is the foundation for custom applications, and Microsoft only continues to enhance its functionality and its connections to other Microsoft tools. SharePoint just keeps getting better and better.

Usability

Axero

Axero 8.2
Based on 1 answer
This rating has a caveat - there is always room for improvement, and this team gets it.You always learn from customers how to do things better and easier, so it is a constant learning of how people use the site. Although the search engine is exceptional, most people do not use it as their first line of research.Much of the usability has to do with layout - and is not just a software usability item, so the rating is severely dependent up on the layout/options you choose for your usage. And their team will do anything in their power to get the results and layout you want.The areas that need improvement - and acknowledged by the team - are the administrative tools. There are a ton of options, and it takes a little to learn some of those. For most people, however, this won't be an issue, because the support team will always help you. This is always the case with more power. If there were fewer options it would no doubt be easier, but they give you the keys to all of the cars in the lot; so a little more to learn.

No usability issues reported. Individual teams also have allocated areas which replace legacy shared drives on local LANs. Access to Sharepoint resources is fully integrated with corporate Active Directory with additional two-factor authentication required for administrative users. Users have access to Microsoft Services Hub which allows you to create, manage, and track support requests while staying current on Microsoft technologies with access to select self-paced learning paths

Support for SharePoint is quite good. Microsoft provides good support. Microsoft offers
  • Quick turnaround time for issues
  • A range of support services
  • Access to a network of resources
  • Escalation of issues
  • Ongoing development and commitment to produce enhancement
The majority of support is required for initial installation. Once complete and the system is operating we have had very few support issues.

The face to face training I received was on SharePoint Administration. It was rushed as there was a lot of information to cover and the application of the labs weren't that great either. I like to be able to relate what I am learning to what I am currently doing.

I like to learn at my own pace and online training allows for that. Additionally, you can skip through pieces of content that you already know or are already comfortable with. Microsoft actually offers great videos on their website for basic fundamental SharePoint Training. I have used these training videos in some of my own training sessions with end users.

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

Alternatives Considered

We selected Communifire for the excellent sales support, strong feature set and quick set up time. We were able to get started immediately and build out features as need required which led to faster execution and higher adoption rates among our team.
Teresa Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

We are able to add more context to MS Sharepoint than just dragging and dropping files into an online storage application. We can design a user-friendly website that instructs visitors on what it is they are viewing and provide more direction on how to utilize the documents and files they are accessing.

Return on Investment

Axero

  • We are still building out features of the platform but with implemention of paid features by members, we will be able to cover our operating cost of the platform.

MS SharePoint

  • Going from an older version of Sharepoint to Sharepoint Online has improved collaboration greatly.
  • Sharepoint Online also improves on empowering users to manage the sites and content.
  • Overall efficiency has improved greatly compared to the older Sharepoint as well. The platform is much easier to use.
