Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

MS SharePoint is currently being used by IT.
  • Collaboration is the number 1 reason to use SharePoint. It is a great way to share content across systems, therefore improving productivity.
  • Document Management is a great feature which allows you to store and organize data in a more proficient manner. Our organization used to have numerous copies of the same document in different folders on the network. Employees were using out of date documents. With SharePoint there is a central place for policy and everyone accesses the most current copy.
  • Social Networking give the opportunity to use tagging. Using tags is a way to find information on a specific subject.
  • I would like to see a more affordable product.
  • I would like to see more out of the box workflows.
  • I would like to see more versitile webparts.
  • Company information is shared on a website rather than through email or print outs left on employee desks. Print outs are no longer needed, thereby reducing paper usage. Less emails to read increase worker productivity.
  • Collaboration of data between projects with numerous applications have decreased system downtime.
  • A localized area to store customer forms has decreased employee error. Prior to SharePoint the incorrect form was given out to the customer.
The only other product I have used would be Network folders, and SharePoint wins hands down.
It is a great place to store and share company policies, procedures, and standard work. Company announcements, newsletters, and events are easily accessible. With everything stored on a common website, emails and print outs have been dramatically decreased.

Using MS SharePoint

The company has recently upgraded to SharePoint 2013. The major deciding factor was the interaction between SharePoint and MS Project.
