Most companies would buy into a single ecosystem for their productivity needs. Pre-cloud tools to communicate and collaborate on files were typically called the intranet. In broad strokes, there are four main jobs to be done in team collaboration:
Confluence, Sharepoint, Lync, Basecamp
Slack, Hipchat, Yammer, Microsoft Teams, Basecamp, Facebook Workplace
Network Drive, Confluence, Sharepoint, Basecamp
Box.com, Dropbox, Onedrive, Google Drive
Confluence, Sharepoint, Basecamp
Asana, Jiro, Trello
We moved from a single solution for many different tasks, to cloud tools that do a single job very well and integrate with other services. That's exactly what Cogo aims to be. We are completely focused on enabling the best content library functionality.
Sharepoint has almost any feature you can imagine. However, it has become a very complex and clunky product.
Sharepoint offers building blocks. You can use it to build a content library, but it requires a lot of setup and customization by developers, time and time again.
Since we all use cloud apps that can easily integrate with each other, we do not need to use one ecosystem anymore. Instead, we can mix and match the best tools together.
The customizability means that you almost always need a developer to set up Sharepoint to make it useful for the particular use case. And even then it’s still pretty complex to use, creating a lot of friction to share content.
