Overall Satisfaction with MS SharePoint / SQL

We use SharePoint to share install walkthroughs, configuration files, PMR's, PDR'S, and lots of other department specific files. We use SharePoint to ensure that our team always has the relevant information that they need to do their job, no matter where they are. We use SQL specifically as a reporting tool on the back of our Datacap tool. The error handling, monitoring, and data extracted all gets output to the data tables.
  • Allow users to access documents no matter where they are.
  • It's secure.
  • It is end-user friendly. Our team members can use it quickly and efficiently.
  • It is efficient in managing large amounts of data.
  • Allows us to monitor and track data from our OCR tool.
  • It can be a little difficult to get it set up. There are very few walkthroughs in it on how to set up.
  • The search functionality needs improvement. It's currently nonexistent.
  • It's difficult to lock down files to ensure that users who can access them don't delete them.
The range of data, and the ease of merging them, we are exceptionally happy with. The data and reporting is pretty much as real-time as we can get it to after the data exports.
The collaboration tools allow us as a team to handle and manage our documents no matter where we are, and we can do this with ease. We never seem to have any trouble with this, hence the high rating.
It is useful to store and keep track of all our documents that we need access to throughout the day. This means users can access key files, review them, and amend them without concern. And we can access this without using drive space, which is at a premium within the business. The SQL allows us to track and monitor the data that our OCR applications regularly output, which is large amounts of data. It is less appropriate with smaller data samples, when access might suit better.
