Likelihood to Recommend

MS SharePoint

It is suited for organizational file storage and long-term projects. It is also great to use it to replace the departmental shared drive for easier cloud or remote access. It is not appropriate for ad-hoc teams or ad-hoc projects that require really short turn around times. Microsoft Groups or Teams are better suited for this.

Xait is well suited to its primary purpose of proposal writing. It's less of a good choice for a more general purpose document production tool.

Pros

MS SharePoint

  • 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

XaitPorter

  • Allows multiple writers, reviewers and approvers to work on a document without serious headaches arising from version control.
  • Provides a very intuitive way to add tables and figures and then provide explicit references to them within the document.
  • Creates a very professional looking document, including fully hyper-linked table of contents both within the document and also within the Adobe Reader Bookmarks sidebar.

Cons

MS SharePoint

  • Sharing with others outside SharePoint. It is almost impossible to collaborate with others outside the organization
  • The tools to create "website" like experience are very outdated or hard to use. It should be easier to create for non-technical users
  • There is no seamless integration with other tools like chats or skype for business.
  • It feels like a disconnected tool from others. I have seen some improvements over the years but it still feels like it is on its own
  • There are not enough tools to create an actual community type of environment
Giovanni Duarte profile photo

XaitPorter

  • The dashboard is complex and not easily understood. Since we only worked on a few documents at a time, we went straight into the document and never spent time on the dashboard.
  • Being cloud based, the time taken to move from one section of the document to another becomes painful.
  • The word import function could be improved.
  • There are some functionalities in Word that are not available in XaitPorter. For example you can insert pictures within a table in Word but you cant do that in XaitPorter.

I am not the decision-maker for my organization regarding enterprise technology, so I can't really answer this question very accurately, other than to say that I am happy to continue using SharePoint as long as my organization keeps it.

Usability

MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint 6.7
Based on 12 answers
The version of on-premise SharePoint that we use in the organization (2010) is dated by some of the web application standards that are available today. While officially the standard for our organization, parts of the organization are adopting Google and have found that it is superior to SharePoint, and mostly this has to do with the updated user interface making usability for less technical users more approachable.

XaitPorter is always there even though we have issues with outages (suddenly the network does not work, but that is internal issue)

Alternatives Considered

MS SharePoint

SharePoint was already selected when I got here. However, like I've mentioned before, SharePoint is a very capable platform for collaboration. It has a nice feature set but the issue at times is getting the product to do what you want it to do. Other products are cloud based (though I know MS does have a cloud option for SharePoint as well) so you're not worrying about your backend. But because it's on premise, it does give us the sense of comfort knowing that the product is in house
