Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

SharePoint is the storage and shared area for all documents, spreadsheets, etc. used by the entire company. This provides a safe location that others can get to as well. We do have a separate SharePoint folder for each department as well which provides an area for each specific department without cluttering the lives of the other departments/teams.

Pros

  • Sharing documents.
  • Providing revision history.
  • Safe repository.
  • Collaboration between users.
  • Live collaboration keeping all in-sync.

Cons

  • Users can get confused if they are editing a local copy or the SharePoint copy.
  • If a document gets out of sync, you have to realize it, then find the revision history. Makes sense, but still can be hard for some users.
  • SharePoint feels heavy at times.
  • Saving files and keeping all revisions has been a large ROI for us.
  • Occasionally we would somehow have an issue with 1 or 2 users not seeing the latest document which was an annoyance, but after a few minutes were able to get back on track.
I have only used Google Drive for personal reasons, not at work. SharePoint has a larger corporation safer feel to it as it uses the comfort of MS Office products for users.
MS SharePoint is well suited when you don't want someone's hard drive crash to slow down business. Keeping all files safe and backed up is the only way to do business. Also, when you want several people to open a document over a phone meeting, and have everyone see each other's comments and edits, SharePoint makes that possible.
