Whitepaper: Document Review And SharePoint Document Collaboration

As part of Business Value Month we were given this whitepaper by Pleasetech. Pleasetech  are Silver Exhibitors for the European SharePoint Conference 2013.

Abstract:

Almost every department in an organization produces documents of one type or another. Business users create technical documentation, brochures, reports, marketing material, contracts, proposals and much more. On the other hand, IT departments are tasked with the job of implementing the right software to produce and manage this huge array of content.
Whilst document creation and review is a critical business process, few recognise that it is one that is fraught with inefficiency and frustration. As such, most continue to work with manual processes or other workarounds, learning to live with the chaos of managing email attachments, copying and pasting edits into the original document, multiple review cycles, working with several versions of the same document, long review meetings and more.

However, there are solutions specifically designed to deal with this process. Software solutions support rather than hinder the collaboration process in document production, especially when this requires working with others outside the immediate area such as other departments, offices or third parties.

ESPC call for speakers 2024
Microsoft SharePoint is widely acknowledged as a key player in the document management arena, and is marketed as a business collaboration platform for the storing, management and sharing of content. As such it is used to promote the controlled sharing of documents which can be downloaded for authoring and review. In addition, SharePoint 2010 used in conjunction with Office 2010, has co-authoring functionality.

Many SharePoint customers are therefore intrinsically involved in document production and through them we can learn more about their attitude towards the document review process. This includes understanding their position when considering third party applications within the SharePoint context and gaining a viewpoint on SharePoint’s collaboration capabilities.

The survey
During October 2011, Microsoft hosted its international conference in Anaheim, California USA, whilst the leading independent SharePoint event in Europe took place the same month in Berlin, Germany. Both provided a forum for SharePoint customers and IT professionals to learn more about SharePoint 2010, to network and hear from key Industry speakers.
