We are looking for a document management system that can scale with the growth we’ve gone through, something more than just simple file storage. After choosing SharePoint, we found it tricky to use. Once you get it working it’s kind of OK, but I found you’ve got to operate through Windows Explorer rather than using the web app.
Hamish, the director of Convex Accounting, answered some questions about his experience transitioning to, and using SuiteFiles.
SuiteFiles lets us do business the way we want to be doing it. It gives us the cloud, it gives us access to files remotely, it manages our emails. It manages everything on the document front
How we solved it
SuiteFiles lets us do the whole cloud thing in a way that SharePoint doesn’t. It’s much easier to get new people using SuiteFiles than it is SharePoint. The interface feels similar to them, which means they’re able to pick it up much quicker than they’d otherwise be able to. SuiteFiles lets us do business the way we want to be doing it. It gives us access to the cloud, it gives us access to files remotely, it manages our emails. It manages everything on the document front. The support is also really responsive. If there’s an issue, it’s fixed. If there’s a feature that’s needed, it’s quite often built.
