Do you want technology peace of mind for the future of your business?
SharePoint offers a server-free, business cloud solution that will keep your mind at ease when it comes to document security for your business. Alongside backed up business files, SharePoint places your business in a new, collaborative and more efficient working environment with added productivity perks that your business won’t be able to resist!
SharePoint is a cloud computing application, if you do not understand the whole “cloud computing” thing, check out this article to learn the basics. Our Managing Director explains exactly what “Cloud Computing” is, exploring what it can do for business and its current position in assisting businesses move forward.
So, SharePoint, let’s break it down for you. SharePoint is a cloud application that aims to promote a “disaster-proof” style working environment. The cloud dependent program keeps all files backed up – saving you in the unfortunate scenario of business data-loss.
SharePoint is extremely customisable and can be used as an easier alternative to a company intranet. SharePoint can create a secure and streamline virtual workspace for any SMB. When using SharePoint as an intranet system, all selected staff will gain access to a streamline online environment where they can collaborate on documents and projects with colleagues in real-time.
One of the best aspects of SharePoint is the collaborative nature of the platform. To get the most out of this, it is important that the set-up of SharePoint is done correctly. If you dump all of your files straight from your server onto SharePoint you hinder the potential of the system. It is best to take the time to assess all of your business files.
Just like clearing out your wardrobe, ask yourself, “do I need this?” Are all of your business files relevant to current business needs and operations?
This evaluation is especially important for businesses that are well established and have been operating for many years. Sorting out and perhaps even discarding your old files may be necessary. By doing this, you will increase the benefits during your SharePoint experience.
When using SharePoint for document collaboration users will always have the most up-to-date version of the file and can work on the documents simultaneously with a co-worker.
When managing the projects you have the ability to set and customise password requirements for particular documents to control who sees and who edits them. This creates an online environment where privacy is still an option (which is rare in this day and age!).
Everything is automatically saved and updated as you go, eliminating the need to play email tennis with your project documents. This increased speed in document access and more efficient document management is a key benefit of the SharePoint platform. SharePoint is flexible, it can be adapted as your business grows.
