Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

As a multinational education organization with offices in Cardiff, Singapore, the Hague, and Washington DC, we use Sharepoint to share and update meeting agendas, collaborate on projects, to track issues and bugs for our IT department and shared systems, and to create and edit process documents that are accessible from anywhere in the world.
  • Access, edit, or update shared documents from any computer connected to the internet.
  • Access version histories to revert to previous state from unwanted edits
  • Easy to navigate between multiple projects and notebooks
  • Implementation and the initial training was difficult across divided offices scattered around the globe.
  • Not the best functionality in editing from mobile devices and phones
  • Slow to sync with the latest versions and edits when accessing from non-office networks.
  • Improved our ability to collaborate across offices
  • Version histories have saved projects in emergencies
  • Adoption was a slow process across our offices, leading to a slow realization of all benefits.
MS SharePoint is great for organizations with global offices or stakeholders who regularly collaborate on projects through video and online meetings, or through shared projects. Works well if all offices have similar relationship and familiarity with the MS suite of products. Definitely requires assistance from a professional to implement across your organization.
