Comparing Windows SharePoint v3 to Lotus Quickr
Selecting the software on which you build your infrastructure is a crucial decision that must be made early on, as it will affect how your staff performs operations and communicates business critical data.
SharePoint fits into your business – Not the other way around
Here's why you should consider SharePoint over Quickr – if you're using Microsoft Office to run your business, SharePoint is the natural, seamless extension that works congruently out – of – the – box with your existing Microsoft® Office tools.
When comparing the two programs, you will see similar features and functionality. SharePoint, however, has distinct advantages for businesses operating within a Windows framework.
Your decision between SharePoint and Quickr for business collaboration should rely on these specific guidelines:
- Scalability for Growth
- Flexibility of functions and features
- Security of Access and Permissions functions
- Ease of adoption and use for staff
SharePoint Advantages Over Quickr
Tools are only as good as your staff is at using them. SharePoint uses comprehensible Microsoft tools and interfaces that make learning easy for you and your staff.
Fits into the computing infrastructure for most businesses
If you operate within a Microsoft environment, using such programs as Windows XP, Vista, and Office 2003/2007 to rely on business, SharePoint fits right into your current computing model with less hindrance in communication between your business critical applications.
As a growing business, you want a long-term solution that scales as you do. With SharePoint, you can start small with Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). Then, as your collaboration needs grow, you can easily upgrade and migrate to a dedicated Microsoft® Office SharePoint Server (MOSS). When upgrading to MOSS, you get enhanced security for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and features such as email and IM connections with your applications.
