Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It allows us to arrange and develop new ideas, then incorporate them into the portal. We can create a one stop information center, so people can access the information from one window.""I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector.""Manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. There is a little more of a learning curve than you have with a simple tool, but a business user can learn to manage the system as an administrator very easily.""We chose Liferay because it is open-source and that we can make any number of users apply, register into the system and use the system, as opposed to other solutions where the cost is based on user licenses. This is one of the most attractive features.""The solution is easy to install.""The look and feel and the user interface are great."

"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.""The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing."

Cons
"It could be improved in terms of adding filters to some of the rules. Therefore, you can retain how long a document would need to stay in an archive.""Social area and capabilities need improvement.""It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box.""The integration and configuration need to be simplified.""The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse.""The plugins should be more affordable."

"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."
