What is most valuable?
- Document management and permissions: For the document management functionality, I really like the way that we can create the views of documents and very easily create column metadata.
- The flexibility of document sets and being able to manage access with permissions
- The permissions functionality is outstanding. There is the ability to have group or individual permissions. The complete granularity of being able to apply permissions at collection, site, library, list, folder, and doc set levels give ultimate flexibility.
How has it helped my organization?
It has completely replaced our Intranet and provides a great central storage area that is far more accessible than traditional shared folders on file and print servers.
What needs improvement?
As we are still on an older version, it is difficult to answer this. Primarily, the mobile experience is wanting in SharePoint 2010.
For how long have I used the solution?
I have used SharePoint for five years.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
We did not have any stability problems.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We did not have any scalability problems.
How are customer service and technical support?
Technical support is good.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
Our previous system was shared folders and file and print servers.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
I was not involved in the decision.
What other advice do I have?
Office 365 and SharePoint online is the way moving forward. Integrating it with Yammer and Office 365 groups provides a much greater feature set than SharePoint alone.
