Case Study: Regina Qu’appelle Health Region


This case study of Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region is based on a March 2016 survey of AvePoint customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“DocAve has allowed us to use 1.5 full-time equivalents rather than 3 or 4 for SharePoint. It has also allowed us to give reports on a lot of support issues to super users on each of our sites which means that the IT staff doesn’t have to do this anymore.”

“We use DocAve to back up our SharePoint sites, manage security, and report on user security and dead links. We plan to use DocAve to upgrade our SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 instances to SharePoint 2013 and to manage server shares for different departments in our organization.”

“DocAve has worked very well for us. If we have issues or questions about DocAve, AvePoint is really good at responding to our needs.”
