Key Findings:

  • Getting down to business — This is the first Grid℠ report for Business Content Management, a recent category addition to G2 Crowd. Most of the products featured in the report previously existed in similar categories—namely Enterprise Content Management and File Storage & Sharing—but were chosen to represent this newly defined category based on a specific collection of features and open, modern interfaces. There are 10 platforms with enough reviews to be included on the Fall 2016 Grid℠ Report, with several products falling just short of the minimum number of reviews to be featured.
  • Catalyzing collaboration — When asked what business problems they were solving, a large number of reviewers said that business content management products help foster collaboration within and across teams. Collaboration features are a prominent offering of products on this Grid℠ and one of the primary components that separate these tools from those in similar categories. Many users raved about these features and the simplicity of working with coworkers, editors, and even clients using these products.
  • Sharing is caring — The easy sharing of diverse file types—along with unique permissions, editing suggestions, and version histories—is what many business content management users liked best about their products. These solutions allow business teams to exchange small and large files or entire folders, and access, download, or edit them from the convenience of a central interface. Though opinions on storage capabilities, ease of setup, and system performance varied from user to user, file sharing was consistently singled out as a major upside of business content management products.

  • The report is based on more than 1000 reviews written by business professionals.
