Sharepoint is a great platform. It’s VERY complete, yes…no doubt about it. Problem is that it’s difficult to use. Even for IT guys.
So, you can imagine what happens with non technical users. They simply don’t use it.
If you are in IT, the following story might sound familiar to you:
Peter works in the IT department of a big organization. A couple of years ago he and his team decided to spend a big part of their department’s budget buying Sharepoint 2010. They wanted to have a great intranet. So they customized a bit, told everybody this would be a great social intranet and launched it.
Guess what happened.
Long story make short, the results weren’t quite as they expected. User adoption is pretty poor. In fact, people are only using Sharepoint as a document repository. But as a social network…mmm not really.
So Peter and his team did a survey among their colleagues and discovered they hated it, they found it to techie, too complicated and the look and feel….oh the look and feel…is as sexy as Susan Boyle on a bikini.
So, if you already did the big investment, decided to stay on Sharepoint 2010 for the next couple of years and you want users to actually adopt Sharepoint you might want to try Beezy.
Beezy is social layer that runs on top of Sharepoint 2010. Great thing is that behind it’s actually Sharepoint so it shares the same capabilities but with a nice, friendly and easy to use interface. No intergration, it’s build entirely in Sharepoint.
