Our Verdict…

Waypoint Global Suite is a great solution for small to midsize companies looking to create a central database for all company documentation. It is also useful for maintaining compliance within industries like medical devices, automotive, and aerospace. However, the outdated user interface might also be a drawback for some users who are accustomed to more visual platforms.

The ability to pick and choose additional modules with extra functionality also makes it highly customizable. However, Waypoint Global Suite is not for companies looking for a way to manage documentation on the cloud, as there is currently only a desktop version.

Document Sharing and Organization

Documents stored in Waypoint Global can be shared in three ways:

  • PC
  • Web browser
  • SharePoint

SharePoint integrates with other Windows software to make sharing information possible.

Once documents are added to Waypoint Global, they can be organized in virtual binders so related documents are easier to find. Document relationships can also indicate any parent-child connections.

Audit Trails and Version History

One major tool Waypoint Global offers is version control of documents. First, user access determines who can read a document or make edits to it. If edits are made, they are recorded so administrators can know who made changes and when. These tools are vital for ensuring compliance with business management and industry standards.

Training records can show who has completed a training course and who still needs to finish.

What Features Are Missing?

Waypoint Global might be improved with a few features:

  • Cloud hosting: Waypoint Global currently operates off of Windows. While SharePoint makes it possible to share documents online, a cloud-based version would streamline the process. Fortunately, a cloud-based version is in the works.

Pricing Plans

Waypoint Global Suite pricing is based entirely on the modules selected and user licenses needed. As such, you will need to request a quote to get an idea of the total costs. Annual renewal after the first year averages 20% of the total.

There are also upfront costs for implementation and training. These will also depend on the company size and modules used.

Based on our review of Waypoint Global, we recommend this product to small to medium companies looking to better organize their documentation. This is best for businesses already using Windows-based products as it will be easier to learn. It’s also ideal for growing companies which may want to add extra document and quality management functionality in the future, as extra modules are available.

We would not suggest this solution to businesses looking for entirely cloud-based document hosting solutions. It’s also not suited for companies which aren’t sure of the functionality they need beyond general document management.
