Advantages of Clearview

If you have already made the leap into SharePoint as an enterprise content management system but find it's lacking in some "enterprise level" functionality, Clearview does provide the additional capabilities you will likely require. Most of the time, an organization will pick a number of integrated solutions to get all the functionality that Clearview appears to provide in one single solution. So taking a closer look at its three different solution offerings certainly won't hurt.
