SharePoint is a solution that is used quite a lot for a wide range of automation projects. It is most commonly known for its document management system. However, SharePoint is not an integrated management system, let alone a QMS or a QHSE solution. It must be developed, which comes with the same difficulties as developing software from scratch. 

Set Up and Implementation

In order to set up a QHSE system within SharePoint, you will need to configure before starting with implementation. You will also need an FTE or consultant to make implementation a success. Whereas with an actual QHSE management platform, it runs out of the box. Configuration is just a couple clicks away before it’s running. It also has dedicated support with QHSE experience to make implementation a success.

Version Control

When using SharePoint, documents must be configured correctly for the correct use of version control. With a QHSE management platform, documents are updated when a new version of documents is published. 

Interlinking and Updates

Links must be checked when a new version of documents are published, and updates are only included on specific plans when using SharePoint. However, links are automatically updated when a new version of documents are published and automatically updates are included with a QHSE management platform. 


If you want a back-up within SharePoint, make sure the IT-department is involved with a hybrid or a local version. However, if you use Qooling’s QHSE management platform, you don’t have to worry about a backup since the server automates it on the cloud.
