MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint is well suited for organizations that have staff who work remotely as well as those with physical offices. It allows them the capability to access all the necessary programs in one place. The only setback is that not all programs mirror the original program which may cause some frustration.

Pros

  • To create forms or surveys so it collects information in an effective way including end-user information
  • To restrict access to specific content, folders, or files
  • As a repository that can quickly allow you to organize, filter, and search content
  • A way to have an entire organization in the same system. Using Single Sign-On makes this experience seamless

Cons

  • Excel documents can sometimes be problematic with some users to open from SharePoint.
  • Adding an OCR engine for multifunctional printers, as opposed to using third party products. Especially now that devices can scan directly to SharePoint these days.

Likelihood to Renew

MS SharePoint9.3
Based on 18 answers
For me it is the most cost effective solution to a number of separate products which would otherwise require not only the procurement of a number of individual products, but also;

  • Separate agreements

  • Separate infrastructures

  • separate Support

  • Separate Logons potentially

  • Incoherent search across all systems, if one was available

  • Separate renewal, upgrade, patching etc.

Usability

MS SharePoint7.9
Based on 7 answers
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.

Support

MS SharePoint5.8
Based on 5 answers
Support varies by tech and by vendor. I've used Microsoft's support channel and for the most part have been successful to get my questions answered. I've also used third party vendors and have gotten some answers resolved as well, though sometimes getting them on the phone is difficult. It all depends!

Alternatives Considered

Obviously we still use our CMS to manage our main websites but with SharePoint we no longer have to rely on one or two key employees to post the work that many have done. We also now have a central location for all of these files to be viewed and posted once they are made public. The idea here is that we can pool resources together and not have to worry if the one person who knows CMS is on sick leave, or even worse, permanent leave to get the work completed

Collaboration and Sharing

MS SharePoint10.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Data Integration

MS SharePoint8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.
