It’s important to keep your business’s data and information organized, especially when collaborating digitally with your employees as we continue to navigate this new remote workplace. More specifically, being able to collaborate on documents, photos, and other resources using only one program is convenient and helps productivity remain high.
That’s where Microsoft SharePoint comes in. SharePoint is part of the Modern Office suite and it’s the perfect tool for storing, managing, and organizing business-critical documents.
In this guide, we’re going to break down what SharePoint is, its main features and benefits, and then detail why you should work with our experts to implement it. With Modern Office and SharePoint, connectivity and collaboration are simple.
What is Microsoft SharePoint?
SharePoint is Microsoft’s web-based collaborative intranet platform. Using SharePoint, you can create sites to store, organize, share, and access information from any of your devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.
SharePoint fully integrates with Microsoft Office 365 to allow the sharing and managing of content, knowledge, and digital applications to promote teamwork, help employees find information, and provide seamless collaboration across your entire team.
Documents stored in SharePoint are secure, protected from deletion and overwriting, and can be tagged with metadata and retention policies. Basically, SharePoint allows users to find the right content at the right time.
How Will Microsoft SharePoint Benefit Your Business?
While SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, the product is highly configurable—with usage varying substantially among different organizations. Let’s examine a few of SharePoint’s benefits.
Sharing and Collaboration Made Simple
SharePoint encourages your team to work together through the use of dynamic sites for all project teams, departments, and even divisions. On these sites, you can share files, data, news, resources, training materials, and more.
You can collaborate with other employees across any and all devices, as well as share your sites with specific people outside of your organization.
Build an Engaging Info Center
Use SharePoint’s intranet services to keep employees informed as you continue to work from home. You can use SharePoint to share resources using home and communication sites, as well as the SharePoint mobile apps.
This platform is also ideal for information and data storage. SharePoint is the perfect place to build a center for knowledge that your employees can use, all while assisting with data storage management.
Make Info Easy to Find
SharePoint has intelligent search features that make it easy to quickly find whatever information you are looking for. This platform is perfect for content management, enabling your team to take action and locate documents, photos, and other resources with ease.
Transform Your Workflows
When working from home, the ways you carry out tasks may have to change. SharePoint gives you the tools to transform your business’s processes, whether they are simple notifications or complicated multi-step workflows.
