Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint

SharePoint is used to house company documents and policies. Departmental pages are used for documents pertaining to that department. Users within departments are responsible for the management of the content within their pages. Common links are also on the page for easy access to outside vendors/references for our users. Departmental calendars are also maintained in SharePoint.

Pros

  • Departmental calendars are great. We post individual events as well as product upgrades/outages. Nice to be able to see it all in a glance.
  • Managing departmental documents is easy and keeps everything in one place for organizational purposes.
  • Shared documents such as HR policies works well so all employees have easy access to them.

Cons

  • Security and management can sometimes be cumbersome.
  • Requires training for configuration upkeep.
  • Expensive solution.
We really didn't evaluate any products other than SharePoint. It is pretty much the standard for companies to house their internal website for document sharing. It is scalable and meets the needs of the company. There are plenty of consulting businesses that support SharePoint, so it is easy to deploy new uses with support.
Central repository for all company data to be shared with employees. Can also restrict areas if not all employees should be allowed to view confidential data. Setting up any kind of workflow or anything other than storing documents in SharePoint can be complicated and time-consuming. If you don't have training and several staff to manage SharePoint, it can be difficult.
