More Amazon WorkDocs Pros →

"Document management and records management features are the most valuable.""The implementation and configuring of the resolution are very easy in the online version.""The collaboration, the ability for multiple users to work on a single document.""The most valuable feature is that it is very usable. I can navigate it, I can have a media call, I can have a call with my project team, so we can chat with every team kind of like WhatsApp. Any time there are projects or other things, we can chat in a secure way. It's automation-specific secure.""Ability to collaborate with others in one location.""It is a decent tool for collaboration, especially if you are already using other Office products.""The support from Microsoft is very quick and they are very proactive.""The most valuable feature is the "Alert Me", which provides the ability to set an alert when content is either added or changed and that the alerts can be either real-time or aggregated for the day or the week."

"I had a very bitter experience with their mobile app."

More Amazon WorkDocs Cons →

"The product is behind in development and lacks some features.""The areas around security, such as protection, need to be included.""The user interface needs improvement because there is a lot of stuff in there. I use five to eight navigation buttons. It should be more user-friendly. Frequently used menu items should be arranged in a proper way. That would be helpful.""I would like to see the integration with Teams reinforced.""The solution needs to have more flexibility. The classic version had more flexibility, however, the modern version has many more limitations.""The ability to preview files in different formats should be expanded to include formats such as embedded postscript (EPS), AutoCAD, and Adobe Acrobat PDF.""Workflows could be simplified.""The GUI is outdated."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's cheaper compared to similar products available"
  • More Amazon WorkDocs Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "There are some aggressive discounts offered by Microsoft for organizations that are not for profit, which we are, and it makes it quite attractive to consider."
  • "Pricing plans may be flexible depending on volume usage and your corporate relationship with Microsoft."
  • "It can be expensive for on-premises deployments, especially when you have to support SQL Server as your backend database. That's where the cost comes into play. SQL Server has its own licensing, which Microsoft keeps on changing. Therefore, it can become costly. In the earlier versions of SharePoint, version 2007 or 2010, they had an express version where the SQL Server licensing was free. It wasn't like a full-blown SharePoint. It was only a slimmed-down version. It used to be whatever your hardware costs. You would install the free software and work with it, but you were very limited in what you could do in SharePoint. If you wanted the SharePoint Enterprise Server with all the bells and whistles, then you had to pay more to get the SQL Server license based on the number of users or servers. The subscription model is different for cloud deployments. Licensing is per user and per month. The cost also depends on the storage required. If you have a lot of sites or documents, then you need to expand it based on your needs."
