    SharePoint is quite outdated as a tool. Nuclino is not as feature-packed but a lot easier to use, especially for cross-functional teams that include non-techncial users.

    SharePoint is a pain to use so nearly any tool would be a better alternative. I recently discovered Nuclino and really liking it so far. A lot less bloated, a simple and modern alternative for sharing and collaborating on content in teams.

    A great lightweight alternative. We've been using it for a few months now and can really feel the difference. It focuses on the basics without over-complicating everything and over-engineering the features. Not going back to SharePoint.

    A much simpler tool that nonetheless does the same job and does it better. Bloat-free UI.
