ELIMINATE REDUNDANCY WITH REDUNDANCY ELIMINATION
Corporate culture today wants to make sure everyone has access to key information quickly, easily and consistently, yet most insist on plugging up inboxes with team-wide emails to communicate the same message. Passing around the same file, or asking people to search through endless directories to find a policy or style sheet everyone’s expected to follow doesn’t work either.
To have the same conversation, over and over again is not only mind-numbing, but a waste of time and company resources. It also leaves the door open to people accessing the wrong version of a document, or worse yet, making decisions based on what they remembered because their search patience wore thin.
GET YOUR POINT ACROSS WITH MICROSOFT SHAREPOINT
Skip the inbox. Create a single repository for all company needs, thanks to the flexibility and agility of Microsoft SharePoint. Like a Swiss Army knife, it’s equipped to solve a multitude of operational challenges—all within a single platform.
Companies can use SharePoint for their intranet. Documents can be checked in and updated, permissions assigned and everyone is able to see what’s current at any time.
- Corporate communications intranet
- Store and search for documents
- Business Intelligence features
- Records management features
- Ability to pull data from underlying source systems
- Social networking and personal drives
Because of its ability to create websites and web pages, it’s also frequently used as an internal communication portal where employees can find company updates, messages from the president, company and culture blogs and more, including the ability to integrate with social networks.
Best of all, the newest SharePoint is integrated as part of Office 365, making it cloud-friendly so you can access all documents and related materials from any device no matter where you might be.
IF ONLY ALL TEAMWORK WAS THIS EASY
With SharePoint, there’s no need to open up permissions to file folders in order to work collaboratively on a document. Instead, the document is placed in SharePoint, where authorized individuals can access it and make changes in real time.
SharePoint also helps eliminate the common practice of clients using an inbox as their collaboration system, emailing attachments and storing information. Instead, SharePoint can be set up as a central repository for authorized users.
