Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We are able to handle more than one hundred POs at any given time with their shipping docs and info, with only one person in charge."

More Jive Pros →

"Ability to store files of any type.""For SharePoint, I believe the most valuable feature is the customization and allowing you to share and edit files and documents. Being able to share externally and the precise administration of the files in terms of giving permissions and controlling who has access to what is a very good feature.""The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing.""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
"The search engine could be improved and also provide some kind of indexing."

More Jive Cons →

"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 solution lacks collaboration features.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs.""It has worked very well for me. It seems like they've improved everything. I don't have any cons about it as such, but I don't think they have a talk-to-text, speech-to-text, or speech-to-type. That would be cool for accessibility."
