Re: Quality Software
EJ: I've posted before but I converted my business groups entire Quality System to Sharepoint. It has an advantage in that it is just like an intranet where you can give other people read only or high level of controls. One of my first task was to migrate our management review off Excel and I reluctantly got involved in it. I spent one day with a contractor so came up to speed very quickly. I then used it to document all CSRs which go above our existing Quality system which was adopted Worldwide throughout our company. Previously each site was maintaining each CSR list which was always ripe for an audit finding.
I've even used it to design an FMEA. Our product development group use sharepoint to track their projects in APQP format.
Sharepoint 2007 has advanced features such as ability discussion boards and something I particularly like it's ability to support RSS feeds.
Sharepoint though requires some overhead. If you do it in house, you are going to need IT to run Sharepoint.
However, you can use 3rd party host services to host sharepoint for you. I have privately used Apptix.com sharepoint where I paid $50 per month. I believe you can have 50 users under that plan.
