For any organization with more than one person in it, if they are trying to organize things to let people in the company know what others are doing, then this solution is good for them.The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features.The workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities.It has helped us with storing all the documents, which means that people are not going to intervene. There is a way of extracting knowledge within documentation and tracking it. There are knowledge assets for where documentation is stored, indexed and searchable through SharePoint.The metadata services, the WCF service integration and the Voxel feature are three most valuable elements of this solution.Tech support tops off as excellent.It is very stable.The ability to have version control and co-editing is vital to our workflows.

Cons
The biggest issue for us is the price of the product.It needs a better UI and it should also be cloud-ready. The UI has not changed in years.It should provide more tools to help clients upgrade solutions based on Webtop.

I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools.The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.Workflow is something that can become more intelligent.Search can be improved a lot because we are always trying to compare it with Google Search. Beyond that, it would be helpful to tag the documents.The initial setup was very complex.I understand that some functions are lost when you store the information in a file system, so maybe that's a way SharePoint can improve.SharePoint sometimes cannot handle the amount of co-editing that we do.Needs improvement on the user interface.
