Boost productivity and collaboration with SharePoint

Thursday, 02 November 2017



Microsoft SharePoint is a cutting-edge business platform which is highly configurable to address your business needs, streamline processes and improve productivity. The platforms strength lies in that it brings together traditionally separate functions like data management, networking, intranet & workflow management presenting them in an accessible cloud-based portal. For most users, it functions as a secure place to organise and share company data but it has potential to deliver far great functionality to meet your specific business objectives.


The key elements which SharePoint can boost collaboration and productivity through are:


  • Communication & collaboration

Create an intranet for your internal business needs enabling your team to share information, documents and other business data with their colleagues. You can customise your internal team site to include project or departmental specific pages, discussion boards, document libraries and much more. Business data can be shared online in a password protected space and accessed by a variety of workplace tools including smartphones and tablets with access being able to be rescinded at a moment’s notice.


  •  Document Management

SharePoint can dramatically improve your document management system – files which may previously have been lost in piles of paperwork or a cluttered file server will now be simple to locate. SharePoint’s greatly improved search facility, ability to tag documents and apply metadata improves productivity by cutting out this time wasted on looking for essential documents. Security is covered as you can define and manage access controls through the whole life cycle of your business documents from creation through to publishing.


  •  Real-time document editing

Several staff can work on one document at the same time and real-time collaboration allows any time sensitive documents to be completed by many staff simultaneously. Team members can collaborate directly, removing the barrier of location, shortening decision-making cycles and saving time. Microsoft offers a range of ways to track documents and you can check a document in and out stopping staff working on out-of-sync data, allowing the platform to meet the objectives of your business.


  •  Mobility

The ability to access information on the go is now a fundamental workplace necessity. SharePoint enables your team to access business data on a range of devices, including smartphones and tablets. The SharePoint app will enable your team to stay connected remotely, securely and with the ability to access key business data and documents from anywhere.
