Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

My organization fully utilizes MS SharePoint as a critical part of our workflow management process. In combination with Microsoft Teams, SharePoint is used to store all shared documents in a secure, cloud-based location. Due to the diverse nature of our workforce, MS SharePoint allows documents to be quickly and easily shared across multiple, locations, states and even countries. Documents can be checked-out and checked-in for editing allowing easy control and management of document versioning ensuring no document version is ever lost.
  • MS SharePoint allows easy, cloud-based document sharing in a controlled, common interface
  • MS SharePoint provides in-app document versioning
  • MS SharePoint integrates very well with MS Teams providing a seamless interface to a top-notch collaboration tool
  • MS SharePoint's link between the Teams app and the online web-based interface is a little awkward as it requires you to click an "open in the app" link rather than allowing you to set this as the default behavior
  • It would help in MS SharePoint if one could more easily get to the "Check Out" option rather than having to navigate to the "More..." submenu on right-click of a file
  • MS SharePoint has had a very positive impact on ROI as it has allowed seamless and effortless sharing of files across the organization.
  • The cost of fully customizing MS SharePoint is not trivial, due in part to its vast offering of customizability.
  • It has had the positive impact of allowing for cloud-based document storage allow to decommissioning of on-prem storage at substantial cost.
MS SharePoint's seamless integration with OneDrive makes it the hands-down winner over Google Drive. Although Google Drive is a fantastic tool, not being fully integrated with the MS Office Suite makes it less appealing for a large corporate storage solution.
I am very likely to recommend MS SharePoint to a colleague, if they are in a Windows or Apple environment. Unfortunately, for the die-hard UNIX folks, the inteface to MS SharePoint is almost non-existent or clunky at-best.

MS SharePoint is well suited if you wish to present a friendly user-interface to a document repository. It is even a better solution if your organization fully embraces to the Office 365 environment as the integration is virtually seamless.
