Many companies use SharePoint in a lot of ways. You can use it for exchanging files with customers, as a training LMS (learning management system), for tracking workplace injuries, and more).

Given the cost, and the fact that you can use it in lots of ways, it's worth a thought, even if it's maybe not GREAT any any one thing.

Pros

Easy, flexible.

Cons

Not specially designed for any one thing.

Advice to Others

Not a bad thing to try for any number of reasons before paying lots of money for specific software tools.

I use Sharepoint on a regular basis and it has some pretty good functionality, however, if it starts to have any glitches and starts to break down, it can delay many workflows within the system and it costs a lot for someone to come in and fix the problem

Our company currently uses SharePoint 2010 and in the process of transitioning to a newer version. SharePoint 2010 is still a robust platform for any medium sized company that wants to develop a secure and functional intranet. With Microsoft's move to cloud-based hosting, going straight to SharePoint 2016 would be the best option in terms of cost vs maintenance.

Pros

-Widely known platform with easy to understand designer interface.
-Once a site template has been set, it is easy to build out multiple site structures within the collection.
-Workflows are easy to setup and can be modified quickly.

Cons

-SharePoint 2010 is still a bit static looking and is not the most effective platform for use on mobile devices.

Advice to Others

Still the best solution for medium sized businesses looking to improve collaboration, communication and tracking of tasks, goals, etc.

N/A

Our company started using sharepoint to catalog and share information. The main frustration I have had is the ability to find documents. It may be the way our management has chosen to catalog them, but in order to find a certain document, we pretty much have to know the name of the document or plan to look through pages and pages of documents when using a keyword search.

Another issue we have experienced with Sharepoint is a number of documents that are saved and the order they appear in the search. I never know if I am getting the most recent version or a previous version that someone forgot to remove or replace. When I search for a document, there is no order in the way the search results are listed. I don't know if the documents are showing by latest date first, or most relevant, or most popular or just in a random order. Again, this makes it difficult to find the most recent document- or be assured that I am using the most recent.

Other than that, we have found that Sharepoint is a quick way to share lots of information and then save it for later use. After some training, colleagues and I discovered all the cool, very usable features that Sharepoint has. The only trouble is, our management has very few power users so all those cool features are useless to those who use Sharepoint the most.

Another great feature is the ability to really "personalize" the look of Sharepoint. My department has a very simple design with a department calendar, link to announcements and links to other important pages, and a keyword search. I have seen other departments in the organization that has very detailed (and it looks like much more useful) pages with search, a well-planned left-hand menu, and graphical links to other important reports or document libraries.

I am pretty tech savvy, so once I received access to Sharepoint, I was able to get in and use it as far as my permissions allowed without any training.

Pros

Little or no training required to use if you have technical ability.

Cons

If you are not a power user, your ability to add will be very limited.

Advice to Others

Those who set up their division or company site should really have the everyday users design the layout and content management. Often those who set it up are the casual users, not the everyday users. There is a big difference.

Being a Microsoft product it has many basic and simple application purposes that make this product highly valuable to interdepartmental business processes. The product is not a complete document management application but it does provide a comprehensive retention of company documents from creation to the disposal of departmental documents. The system provides the creation of multiple departmental website portals such as Human Resources and Accounting for cross collaboration and integration with all Microsoft products.

Pros

Microsoft integration with core business applications such as office and email client makes it easier to work and send documents across without the need to invest in third-party applications. The core database can be shared across platforms.

Cons

It does create a high IT overhead from implementation to maintenance due to its complicated setup.

Advice to Others

This product is best suited for large organizations that have multiple branch networks and want to streamline its operations.

SharePoint is a good tool for companies locked into the Microsoft Office platform. The tool integrates very well with all MS Office applications - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook - and makes it possible for staff members to collaborate with each other, exchange notes with each other, hold meetings, and drive business processes. Microsoft has been updating the tool since the time they launched it in the market and built a pretty solid ecosystem around it. You can integrate SharePoint with practically any enterprise software. SharePoint has competition in Liferay and there are pros and cons in using either of these applications.

Pros

SharePoint is very well supported by Microsoft and also by a large number of established software companies. You can integrate SharePoint with practically any enterprise software. The software is easy to deploy and scale in any enterprise. Users can get started with SharePoint within minutes and learn the advanced features of the tool in a couple of days.

Cons

Being a Microsoft product that runs only on the Windows platform, SharePoint is vulnerable to all the security problems associated with Windows. Additionally, the tool is very bulky and resource hungry.

Advice to Others

If you're deploying SharePoint for a geographically dispersed team, make sure to invest in the Riverbed WAN optimizer. You'll save yourself considerable headaches and recover the cost of the appliance within few months. Riverbed will cache SharePoint data at remote locations and provides access to the SharePoint resources at LAN speed.

Sharepoint is good in allowing all levels of IT folks to set up detailed custom workflows and document management practices.

Like any big complex tool, Sharepoint is decent, but does not go well into areas where it is not used to its full potential.

If the tool is architected in the right way, it really proves to be very powerful for project management and collaboration. It is definitely very secure.
Web version of Sharepoint is slick

Sharepoint has been helpful for updating the teams that I'm a part of. It's a good tool for sharing information with users who are spread out in multiple locations. I feel that I'm probably a basic user of the software, but I've found it to be relatively easy to use. Its features communicate well with each other, giving the user the ability to pull data rather effectively.

Pros

Good reporting features.

Cons

The overall design is a little dated.
