Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Ability to store files of any type.""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.""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."

More SharePoint Pros →

"The most valuable feature for me was the different channels.""Slack makes it easy for employees to contact each other and exchange documents or information.""The most valuable feature is the screen sharing, which works well.""The most valuable features are video conferencing and sharing content during meetings.""The feature that I have found most valuable is communication between team members.""With respect to being a clean and efficient communications platform, I think that it does the job quite well."

Cons
"The workflow engine cannot support the business needs.""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.""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."

More SharePoint Cons →

"I would like the text in chat to be more customizable.""I would like the in-meeting content sharing facility to be improved.""Slack does not have videoconferencing capabilities, which would have been nice.""Customization is something that Slack is lacking.""I would like to see a special feature for multiple people to collaborate on a document, working on it at the same time.""I have found it cumbersome to create and set up groups, or channels."
