Save 5 to 6 times more time when working with SharePoint ! (using Harmon.ie vs. browser)

The people over at Mainsoft have conducted a study over at SP Technology conference in Boston to find out how much faster you can work with SharePoint using their tool Harmon.ie.

The outcome is well worth sharing!!Out of 103 lab-rats, the results are:

– It takes an average 61 seconds to upload an email on SharePoint, and 50 seconds to upload a document on SharePoint and attach a document link into email.

– Surprisingly, people needed more time to access SharePoint 2010 versus Office SharePoint Server 2007, perhaps because they were unfamiliar with the new interface.

– Using harmon.ie for SharePoint people completed the same tasks in 11 seconds, which was five to six times faster than using a browser.

In total, participants saved 61 minutes accessing SharePoint using harmon.ie versus using the browser.

  1. Thank you, Marijn, for sharing!

    Let's face it. There are many things in life I'd gladly wait 11 seconds to get (a green traffic light, a web page, hot water for my twin babies' bottles) but waiting a minute is pushing it.

    The same principle applies here.
