I work for a relatively small engineering and sales company with about 30 employees in-house (lots of traveling) and we also work with many vendors and contract engineer companies. It will likely always be about this size.
We are looking at Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 with Office Suite 2007 as a possibility to tie together all of our departments under one roof:
- Document Control
- Workflow Management
- Project Management
- Team task tracking
- Sales’ client relations management
- Order workflow
- Inventory and shipping management
- HR employee data
- Accounting and payroll
- Automated reports
- Strong access control
- Practically ‘hand-holding’ employees through many processes to enforce company standards
We are looking for reviews on the product for those areas. Any articles or personal experience, especially from a professional or IT point of view?
I work as an IT Manager and I would never use Sharepoint Server in my company and here is why.
we use Citrix and Terminal Servers for remote users and VPN.
We use Exchequer Enterprise for Accounting and payroll
We use HR manager for HR
Strong acces control can be acheived without Sharepoint
we use finjan for content control
we use barracuda for mail scanning/virus/antispam
sharepoint might work for you but that is lasy option which is for companies with limited IT budget and just because it has everything in there you might need it doesn’t mean that will fulfill your requirements
all the best
