MS SharePoint

It's very well suited to act as an intranet, where it's only going to be used internally by employees of a company. It works well to share documents, provide lists of reference materials to users, provide a place for departments to have their own discussions and calendars and other collaboration purposes. It includes "workflows" unlike its predecessors, and those can define the flow of a process or task and walk the user through that flow very effectively. In fact, an employee's entire job could hypothetically be scripted using SharePoint workflows. It can scale OK in small scale terms, as I have experience of using it in networks with under a few thousand users. I don't know how it would behave if there were tens of thousands of hundreds of thousands of users, but provided the infrastructure is scaled proportionately, I don't see why it wouldn't work well at that scale as well.

Seismic provides tools that allow for a seller to send a customer facing presentation or document to their customers in bulk. Then, through the insights provided, a seller can go into Seismic and see which customers opened the document, what pages or slides the customer looked at, and for how long each customer viewed that slide or page. Now, the seller knows what product or service this customer is interested in, and can not only prepare with this information, but can also jump directly into this with the customer, so there is no waste in preparing for products the customer won't be interested in.

Pros

MS SharePoint

  • With MS Sharepoint you can share (in my case) projects, initiative trackers, with ID and the information I need to start my developing.
  • It offers cloud acaccessibility, so you do not need to maintain your documents on your hard drive.
  • It allows Office 365 integration, which for me is really great. Using MS Excel and MS Sharepoint.

Seismic

  • Seismic allows for one location to store all relevant content so that associates are not having to spend as much time searching for what they need.
  • Seismic provides the ability to fully customize content such that one template can serve many needs with the simple ability to answer questions that drive the customization in the content. This customization can range from simple to quite complex depending on your level of expertise with the tool.
  • Seismic provides a lot of flexibility when it comes to organizing your content and how to make the experience of accessing that content unique to the needs of each user in the system.

Cons

MS SharePoint

  • SharePoint sometimes has a challenge with the Share feature in Office 365. Traditional best practices are to govern collaboration with permissions groups and manage access at the group level. Share can sometimes undermine that by creating ad-hoc situations unintentionally.
  • SharePoint's success in many organizations is really a function of user adoption and training. It is such a large platform that it is often deployed without much governance or direction.
  • SharePoint's lists and libraries can leverage Excel services and like-kind tools, but the ability for a list to do math in the same way that Excel does is very limited. It still has a room for improvement in the business intelligence features of metadata management.
Chris Carpenter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Seismic

  • It's very difficult to edit/update the content in our LiveDoc because of the way it was coded by Seismic. They are in the process of helping us fix this problem, but it hasn't been ameliorated yet.
  • Responses to questions submitted via email are not always responded to in a timely fashion.
  • I know this is the same as the first bullet, but it bears repeating that the LiveDoc is laborious to update. The inability to edit content easily is a hindrance to our daily workflow.

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.

SharePoint is easy to use for basic tasks. If you're trying to do something a bit more complicated, though, it can be difficult to figure it out on your own without going through a lot of trial and error. Most people will likely only be performing basic tasks, though, so I would rate the usability pretty high.

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!

I have never tried chatting/calling with Support for Seismic. However, from others that I have talked to that use Seismic in more of an administrative role, they have been easy to work with and are of great assistance. I think it's a good thing I've never needed to talk to support, as it means I haven't had any issues to this point.

While SharePoint isn't as easy to use as Igloo or Squarespace, it comes bundled with Office 365 and drives the backend of those tools. I don't see SharePoint as a place people want to go and see stuff, but rather as a glue that supports all the other Office Products. If we get more in house expertise, then it could be a place that people manage work, but it's not used that way right now

Savo, Google Drive, Shared foldersSavo - was best in class a long time ago (and has since been bought by Seismic) - but required a lot of administrative work to setup and maintain. I had three people working on it full time to create pages and managing content. Shared folders and google drive are good to share content, but terrible at searching and tagging (not fully indexed and no tagging)

Return on Investment

MS SharePoint

  • We moved from DocuShare to MS SharePoint and it's been proven very effective.
  • Using MS SharePoint has provided immediate access to documents to staff where in the past, they would have to wait for an admin staff to forward to them.
  • It has been a positive impact for our organization - our newer staff has really benefited from MS SharePoint.

Seismic

  • Seismic eliminates the time and hassle of sending out an email to colleagues with an attachment for a meeting. Plus, it eliminates the potential for someone being inadvertently excluded from the email.
  • A significant amount of time had to be dedicated to user training to increase adoption across the company and make the platform worth the investment.
  • Seismic has brought increased levels of productivity and efficiency to my company.
