SharePoint or SuiteFiles?

By June 17, 2021September 5th, 2022No Comments

In the world of document management, it’s hard to look past the giant that is SharePoint. It’s even harder differentiating your product from SharePoint when it was built on top of it. As a result, when prospective customers check us out, we’re met with the inevitable question: “What is SuiteFiles beyond SharePoint?”

In this post, we’ll answer this question in detail and describe the ways in which SuiteFiles extends beyond SharePoint.

Can I use SharePoint as my system of document management?

SharePoint is a web-based application designed to enhance collaboration and the accessing of files online. This is a broad definition, but one which reflects the freedom firms have to shape SharePoint around their needs. If you’re wondering why you couldn’t just use SharePoint as your system of document management, the answer is you can. The only hang-up is that SharePoint requires expertise to configure or, failing that, time and money. But why go to the trouble of investing these resources for a bespoke document management system with the same functionality as existing, less costly alternatives?

How does SuiteFiles extend beyond SharePoint?

What do we mean when we say SuiteFiles is built on top of SharePoint? Just how admins configure SharePoint for their clients, we’ve configured SharePoint to fit the needs of medium sized professional services firms like accounting practices. The result is a document management system with an easy-to-navigate interface crafted by some of the best visual designers around. As you create and store files, you can be assured that they’re safe under Microsoft’s renowned security. This includes access to multi factor authentication and data loss prevention as well as auditing and logging security measures. Not to mention, you’ll be able to enjoy seamless integration between SuiteFiles and Microsoft applications like Office and Outlook.

What makes SuiteFiles unique?

We have a lightning bolt in our logo. Also, we’ve built features in-house in accordance with the needs of professional services firms.

SuiteFiles has set itself apart with features like document signing in which the laborious process of printing documents, signing them, and scanning them is transferred entirely online and completed within a few clicks of a mouse. Tired of enormous email threads? We’ve created a task feature which allows you to set tasks with clients and colleagues and chat back and forth without the formality of email. We’ve even created a connect feature which allows you to send and receive sensitive documents from your clients without an external portal.

In addition to our in-house features, SuiteFiles has built integrations with some game-changing tools like WorkflowMax and Xero Practice Manager.
