Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

Sharepoint is being used by the organization as a central repository for company news and files. It is a center for HR to keep employee paperwork, and also setup with sub directories for project and client specific engagements.
  • Provide a central location to store company files
  • Provide a framework of organization for what would otherwise be localized, chaotic
  • Provide an easy to use solution that employees can adapt to quickly
  • The UI is becoming a bit dated; an overhaul would be welcome.
  • Some of the functionality and features are clunkier than others.
  • The product is very dynamic and has many functions. To learn the true extent of what SP can do, you should take the time to read and watch tutorials and videos. This is not a con per say, but it does require some deliberate learning efforts to do more than scratch the surface.
  • It would be difficult for me to tie this back to dollars and cents, as I was just a user.
I was not the decision maker.
Google Drive has its own pros and cons, but I prefer Google Drive because of the other products that are integrated like Google Docs and Google Sheets for their strong collaboration potential.
Sharepoint is appropriate for all organizations of all sizes that require a central repository or intranet for employees.
