Comments from some of those who selected SharePoint as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

  • “I have been using SharePoint, with the help of a custom HTML editor (Wix-style), to provide web based content instead of eLearning modules. This is giving my team more flexibility to create and maintain our content, and gives our people more flexibility to access the content when and where they need it.” Head of Risk Skills, Australia
  • “Using SharePoint I have been able to design an engaging induction platform for staff. I have been able to embed Sways, videos and infographics making the experience an interactive one.” Learning & Development Coordinator, UK
  • “Still a solid home for collaborative documents, storage, and learning resources” Manager of Product Development, USA
  • “Good for storing your corporate files (QMS) and manage projects”. L&D Specialist, Netherlands
  • “Work intranet uses SharePoint. Great for discussion boards, document libraries. I also have a work blog on the site” CEO, Australia
