Chose Microsoft SharePoint
Slack is not great for document sharing, but it does integrate with SharePoint and One Drive when we need to post links. Slack is better at the chat function though, which is definitely missed from SharePoint.
Chose Microsoft SharePoint
MS SharePoint stacks great against its competitors for a simple reason, it is perfectly integrated into Microsoft ecosystem, as it is tightly synchronized with Skype for business, Outlook, Outlook calendar and any other O365 software. The great thing about MS SharePoint is that …

Webex Meetings
Chose Webex Meetings
We used GoToMeeting in the past. What we love about WebEx is the ability to have the call to you and not to dial in.
Chose Webex Meetings
Head and shoulders better than teams. Teams is clunky and slow. Keeps messing with my laptop and slowing it down. Keeps putting itself on the desktop and reloading itself. Functionality is nowhere near as good. Its look a feel is not friendly like Webex. Very poor offering from …
Chose Webex Meetings
First of all, Webex is being used for most of the big OEM's and suppliers of the automotive industry. Broad usage makes it a logical choice. Skype for Business is useful as well and also used in the company, but for internal communication only. Due to easy connectivity and …
Chose Webex Meetings
In Webex you can attend to any meeting if you have the link to it. For Skype you have to add the people in your contacts so you can invite them to meetings. Also Skype needs company accesses so we mainly use it for internal connections. Also Webex has Web browser and phone …

Microsoft
MS Sharepoint is specifically useful when you have to collaborate with multiple teams. All teams know what exactly is happening and if they need help they can get it without asking you to share the link every time. This really [transfers] the burden from my shoulders to the participants. As participants can access all resources on demand. For a small team[,] it might feel [like] firing a cannon to kill a mosquito. They can avoid Sharepoint and use [a] planner. If you are the one like me who was excited to see different templates, you will be sad to see there are not many and most of them [look the same].

Overall Webex meetings is a very good meeting application which we are using regularly. It's data privacy and security feature is the good drawback for use and recommended to our Govt clients. Sometimes it creates disruption during huge no.of attendees like video buffering, audio not clear. It is not appropriate for beginners.

Pros
Microsoft
  • Microsoft SharePoint integrates well with Office 365. So long as the content is organized and users know what they are looking for, it can store a wealth of information.
  • It's simple for administrators to add and remove users. It is possible to restrict access to specific pages of a website to particular individuals or groups.
  • As long as the document structure is simple and keeps track of authors and last edited dates, it is simple to store documents in Microsoft's simple document structure.

  • On boarding process is so strong and the application itself is easy to use.
  • The camera on or off function works great and I find it very easy to mute and unmute myself so calls are quiet when needed.
  • I like the fact that it connects easily and over different time zones and I can add as many people as I can to the meeting as possible at one time without breaking up.

Cons
Microsoft
  • 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.

  • At times, the meeting audio/video can get glitchy if there are a lot of attendees online and using bandwidth.
  • Sometimes, it is hard for my prospects to join the meeting without downloading software or can't get the audio to work for some reason.
  • Hard to navigate attendees while presenting yourself.

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
Microsoft
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

Webex Meetings does not provide enough audio feedback for users with visual disabilities to properly navigate the tool. Students, faculty, and staff who are blind or have low vision may not be able to use Webex Meetings. Users with motor disabilities that navigate via keyboard, may not be able to navigate the web conferencing session enough to participate fully.

So personally I have never faced any kind of meeting unavailability issue while scandaling meeting with WebEx the bandwidth is really good and in terms of application performance the same is my opinion what I mentioned for availability it is good and the objective of communication is quite fruitfully achieved with a simple and effective product like WebEx which is often bundled with the purchase of course which is which we have at our company and great discount is being offered so it is easy on our pocket. I really don't have any specific errors which have faced I should mention over here the operation or application uses is quite smooth.

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.

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

The reasons for selecting MS SharePoint are: SharePoint provides ease of use and web design assistance and support SharePoint helps you schedule your content for publishing. enables users to share documents with external parties and offers a better internal structure of the content and better indexing and searching capabilities.

Meetings is the way to go! It blends in with our organization's workflow seamlessly. Teams is great but really suffers in the collaboration department from our personal experience. Webex Meetings is much more fleshed out. The features it has are much more convenient and easier to use. There was a bit of a learning curve, but once you are over that speedbump you are able to get much more use out of Webex Meetings.

I can speak to multiple departments at my organization using Webex Meetings. It has been, and continues to be, our longest online meeting software. It has been deployed across the organization and each department uses it. As I have mentioned, our monthly all-organization Town Halls are hosted on Webex. We have also used it to broadcast a panel-based speaker event.

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • Increased collaboration - MS Sharepoint has increased knowledge share and collaboration between departments. This saves time and energy because of its efficient and effective communication
  • Increased document security - MS Sharepoint has increased our document security so we're safer knowing that our documents are security and access controlled appropriately. We are less prone to get in trouble by our customers due to the security provided by MS Sharepoint
  • Negative Impact Compared to other software - Not sure if the MS Sharepoint's main functionalities could've been met with other tools we currently have

  • The costly nature of individual accounts across multiple schools made it difficult to maintain the budget when our student population grew exponentially.
  • Often communicated to clients and stakeholders that we were a trustworthy and elevated provider.
  • Limited engagement and interactive features with students often contributed to complaints around student engagement and buy-in.
