Comments from some of those who selected SharePoint as one of their Top 10 Tools

“The main platform at work for working with document and news.” Patrik Bergman, 2018

“Loathsome it may be, but time and again in my career it’s the only intranet tool that IT will countenance and an intranet is so much better than shared drives for creating a collective memory.” Dan Roddy, L&D Manager, UK

“Helps internal sharing”Annette Poro, Belgium

“easy way for us to store reference materials” Josh Gertz, USA

“My favorite professional social network environment and as a social collaboration tool in our learning organization it supports me in ‘Working out Loud’ and overall skill building with and about social media. Even better than participation in online-learning courses ;-)” L&D Manager, Germany, 2016

“Collaboration platform and document sharing” Ann Gall, Instructional Designer, Canada, 2016

“Started using it back in 2007 and have used it at multiple companies. Feel it is generally under-used and misunderstood but it helps me organize my projects and set up a one-stop-shop where stakeholders can see what’s going on with each project.” L&D Consultant, UK, 2016

“as LMS and learning tool” Lynetter Kissoon, Canada, 2016

“I use this tool to host my learning community collaboration site, and sites for blended learning courses.” Daniel Jones, Trainer/Instructor, Switzerland, 2016

“Great for sharing information and documents” Steve Adams, Trainer/Instructor, UK, 2016

“Publishing Site – organizing and presenting my curated content” Saif Altalib, 2015

 “If used properly can be an excellent knowledge management system” 2015

“Already available within our organisation, we can use the same system for working and for learning” 2013

“Collaboration is the key to innovation in our business, we use this system on a daily basis – so are setting up more and more groups and communities now – for both informal networking as well as to act as formal learning communities.” JJ 2013
