About Microsoft SharePoint

Microsoft Sharepoint is a knowledge and content management system (CMS). The product also provides collaboration tool capabilities. The solution offers typical CMS features like document and digital asset management, case and contract management and reporting and analytics. All these combined features enable users to create, manage, and review various content types from one central location. SharePoint enables organizations to manage documents and other file types throughout their publishing lifecycle. Users can also leverage its interactive dashboards and scorecards to create content reports. These reports can help users pinpoint and build solutions for content and publishing needs. Sharepoint’s CMS system also includes website content management capabilities...

Great collaboration tool

We have done quite well with the tool. Little by little we have been using more and more functions. It has helped a lot with the backups and the rotation of personnel that are in the organization.

Pros

We managed to unify in a single platform the management of business documents. It also gives us a good amount of space, 1TB in total, independent of storage per user.

Cons

Collaboration with third parties still seems a bit complicated to me, we have had some problems with the access of external collaborators and we have to be aware of the permissions.

Reasons for choosing Microsoft SharePoint

As I mentioned before, it all comes down to capacity and cost. It is important to management to be able to get more for less, at least when we combine all the capabilities of both products together.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft SharePoint

It was a combination of factors, including the amount of storage and the combined costs. For example, it was more convenient for us to migrate to Microsoft since it included Office 365 licenses and mail with greater capabilities.

Data Synchronization is the Best!

Overall, this is a great software. I have been using this for almost 3 years and i think of it as the best out there. Highly recomend this product. I abolutley love the capabilities of file sharing, controlling permissions, and data syncronization.

Pros

Data Synchronization is absolutely grat. I like that every document is updated automatically and syncs in the cloud. This feature is incredibly helpful. I love that more that one user can be in the same document at the same time and Sharepoint updates and saves both peoples' edits and additions in real time.

Cons

I would say the time it takes to get all users up to speed in using this software as well as implementing training to get everyone utalizing this software to its full capacity takes time. This ofcourse goes back to user adoption. Within my organization, it took a while for all users to feel comfortable navigating within Sharepoint as well as it took them time to get acclimated to using this product.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft SharePoint

We wanted more of a centralized place in the cloud where all departments files could be located as well as the ability to manage access/ permissions.

Consistently Inconsistent

It "helps" us back up all of our company files. It does not really do that majority the time though, so my overall experience with Sharepoint could be best described as nonstop frustration. I do not recommend it.

Pros

It is easy to navigate and add documents quickly.

Cons

The sync feature to back up company files is so awful. It does not work. It is Sharepoint's main purpose, so I think this application needs some work. Sometimes files exist, sometimes they do not. I've had AP Logs completely wiped and luckily I kept hard copies to re-upload myself. Sharepoint can be super unreliable!

Great value, Somewhat difficult implementation

I love the ability to store documents in different folders, and the idea of sharing folder-related information is appealing if an organization has the time and expertise to be able to use that feature. Even though it's been tough getting all our staff acclimated, it has been a really good, cost-effective product for our non-profit org.

Pros

This software has a great price for non-profits orgs, and has some pretty incredible, useful features. However, those features are only good if the org's staff is willing to invest time into learning to use them.

Cons

The emails that are sent to the administrators with upcoming changes are written to an IT audience. For a small organization that may not have the staff with that expertise or experience, they are difficult to understand. I really wish Microsoft emails could be understood by a larger audience.

Reasons for choosing Microsoft SharePoint

Cost was lower, and there were multiple additional features that were appealing, such as Teams.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft SharePoint

We wanted to make sure we wouldn't lose documents and didn't want to use complicated methods to access an on-site server while we were off-site.
