Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint
MS SharePoint is a way to manage shared documents for a project. We use it to manage the necessary information for a project so that anyone in the company can go to the SharePoint page to get whatever relevant information they need. This is useful for the engineering and marketing teams to have access to information on all of the projects that we are working on and for projects that have been completed.
- SharePoint provides a history of our projects that can be accessed by employees.
- SharePoint is sluggish in certain areas, causing inefficient use of time navigating and inserting data.
- SharePoint migration between versions is a costly use of time.
SharePoint has more features than Google Drive, but is not free. It has the ability to present full web pages, which Google Drive does not have. It also has integration into Microsoft 365, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Outlook which are strong product lines for business. Google Drive does have its own free versions of these, but they are not as fleshed out and proven as the Microsoft Office suite.
MS SharePoint is useful if your company has an employee who knows everything about SharePoint and can customize it to fit the business needs. It provides businesses a way of having an online accessible platform for their employees without having to create one from scratch. However, it takes a lot of effort to really learn everything about SharePoint, so if your company does not have the resources to dedicate to managing SharePoint or does not have a clear vision on how to utilize it, then it can start to become a detriment.
