More Egnyte Connect Pros »

"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 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 workflow feature is valuable because it enables us to cascade responsibilities.""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.""This solution has helped us with the categorization, organization, management, discovery, and delivery of program and project related information.""The most valuable features are the Integrations, web site, and search.""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."

Cons
"If this solution had a better ability to search, that would be helpful. In addition, if there was an ability to collaborate, that would also be a benefit. At present, the vision control is had because if someone gets out of it, it locks. And, whoever saves last overrides everyone's work."

More Egnyte Connect Cons »

"The initial setup was very complex.""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.""Workflow is something that can become more intelligent.""I would like a simpler, more cost-effective solution for connecting data sources with workflows and BI tools, or data mining tools.""This solution would benefit from the implementation of enhanced online forms and template development capabilities.""The areas of this solution that need improvement are the relationships between lists, cross-site web parts, and page-building 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.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs."
