SharePoint Benefits

Owner at Alopex ONE UG
So if you want to have something like a business, or if you want to have something like a product catalog and you are selling something like Amazon, you want to uniquely identify your product like Amazon does it with its ASIM numbers and these to be identified with a name. So the service identifying these unique ASIM in numbers with their names which might be localized in English, German, Dutch or other languages. These are being identified by a managed Metadata service. Amazon does something very similar to Metadata and SharePoint. So, that's the basic technology everyone needs for this web service experience and order to identify the same object with different names. View full review »

SharePoint has streamlined our documentation management process by allowing us to automate several functions. The version control function has been particularly useful, helping us keep detailed records of changes to documentation. This has removed the risk of human error and streamlined the process. The ability to review the notes for each version has and to easily revert to a previous version has proven useful. SharePoint has also helped us improve the accessibility of official company documentation across our different teams. In conjunction with SharePoint Designer, we’ve also been able to create a social hub on our SharePoint homepage where we can share news, photos, and company announcements. View full review »
System Manager at a financial services firm with 11-50 employees
It manages processes. I personally think a very strong point is that we use it in combination with OneDrive. Now that we have been handed the GDPR law enforcement, in combination with OneDrive, we can synchronize documents or part of a customer's information to a laptop. If they make changes it will automatically be synchronized back. In the case of a lost or defective device, you always have the information. I think this is a very strong point. View full review »

Enterprise Architect Channels at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
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. I think this represents the collective knowledge, which is highly valuable.
