Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

MS Sharepoint is the central repository for all documents in our technology department. MS Sharepoint addresses business and technology needs by allowing users to create, maintain, and store all technical documents. MS Sharepoint allows users to easily share and distribute all documents and to create customized client reports. MS Sharepoint solves the challenge of sharing documents between business and technology users.

  • MS Sharepoint does particularly well at storing and organizing all documents.
  • MS Sharepoint Reporting features is compact yet powerful enough to handle creating custom client reports.
  • MS Sharepoint's presentation of documents, folders and personalized pages makes it simple to retrieve and share them scross teams and groups via URL links.
  • MS Sharepoint provides features that offer users to subscribe to particular topics or discussion groups and encourages knowledge sharing.
  • MS Sharepoint could improve on providing more features when creating personalized web pages for documentation.
  • I would like to see upgrades to the reporting tool for creating SSRS reports including advanced formatting and database utilities.
  • SharePoint serves as the main intranet portal for our technology department consisting of over 200 managers, analytical and technical professionals.
  • SharePoint has been an integral part of the firm’s productivity and use of Microsoft products.
  • The main negative is cost. As with any new software product, SharePoint requires deployment costs including licenses, servers, security, hardware and infrastructure, not to mention unexpected costs.
  • SharePoint offers the ability to customize websites and content with basic features; the more these features are used, the less support is needed which will lower costs.
  • SharePoint’s benefits increase as users become more familiar and knowledgeable with its features and several capabilities.
