Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

We currently no longer use MS SharePoint. We have moved over to Google Docs and their suite of programs. This was an executive decision made to unify everything company wide.
  • I enjoyed the customization abilities of SharePoint. You could right complex processes on the back end that made for a streamlined user interface.
  • The ability to use it for multiple unique roles made it easy to rollout to multiple different departments.
  • The administrative side of it was complex, not so complex though that you didn't want to use it.
  • The ability to run a test scenario before going live. I many times found my mistakes through trial and error.
  • The user interface was a bit hard to navigate. Sections and navigation were not as straightforward as they could have been.
  • It saves on payroll by automating functions that normally were handled by an individual. This required some significant development time, the final product though was extremely efficient.
  • The attention given to projects was increased due to the workflow created to propose them. It was no longer a daunting task repeated several times since everything needed was built into the form.
  • This allowed for better customer service to our end users. They were able to experience updates and workplace changes faster due to the increased efficiency.
In order to unify all our locations and corporate offices to one platform we went with Google products and eliminated MS SharePoint. This was an executive decision that I had no involvement in.
From a project management perspective it was helpful to a program that employees could write up a project proposal with the necessary information and have it automatically go through the proper approval channels without me touching it multiple times.
