SharePoint Review

It collaborates with other MS products. Network sharing is no longer required to store attached documents.

What is most valuable?

Collaboration with other Microsoft products has made SharePoint a real tool for us. You can use a personal OneDrive storage to share your own documents with others, but also use SharePoint sites to manage projects with external users.

How has it helped my organization?

All attachments are put under SharePoint. So, no more of network sharing is required to store documents. Document versioning is also a useful feature for our organization.

No need to worry any more about emails with attachments and obsolete versions with those attachments. People can edit an online version at the same time. You don’t have to save and send anything anymore.

Though Office 365 Groups is only partly based on SharePoint Online, it gives a great option to share team information with inside and outside users.

What needs improvement?

SharePoint Online is excellent as is, but licensing for the on-premises version is expensive.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this product for eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not encountered any stability issues. It is an excellent product if you don’t have to customize it too much.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not encountered any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate the technical support level 9/10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I did not use any other solutions prior to SharePoint and I would not change to another product either.

How was the initial setup?

Setup is very straightforward when you know the architecture.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I didn’t evaluate other products.

What other advice do I have?

Keep it simple. Make use of this product without huge amounts of custom applications and scripting.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a Microsoft Gold partner.
