SharePoint is a secure place for you to store, organise, share, and access information from almost any device. It allows for seamless collaboration, document storage and retrieval, intelligence and insights underpinned by enterprise-grade security and compliance.
It makes it easy for you and your team to create, develop and manage documents, regardless of where you are working from. Collaboration is made simple, you have the option to co-author, compare files and interact online, fostering clear communication between your colleagues and clients.
If you are working as part of a team on a project, or simply a document that needs input from other stakeholders, SharePoint creates a place that encourages individuals to come together and share data.
Key Sharepoint Features
Common uses of SharePoint are:
- As a company intranet – sharing internal information and announcements.
- For team sites – this is where everyone you work with, both inside and outside your organisation, comes together in real time to get work done – creating and sharing content.
- For collaboration – work on documents at the same time with colleagues.
- File retrieval – securely store the correct versions of documents, and easily access them through search facilities.
- Key performance indicators (KPIs) – present company or department KPIs, and easily update and share them.
- Workflows – trigger automated workflows across SharePoint and other Office 365 applications to make work easier, and the outcomes more certain.
