5 Benefits of Implementing SharePoint

What is SharePoint? SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that can seamlessly integrate with the Microsoft Office suite.

SharePoint was launched in 2001, and is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product can be tailored to suit your business needs.

Here are 5 Benefits of Implementing SharePoint in Your Organisation:

Seamless integration:

A key goal for most organisations it to have a single area where employees can access everything they might need.  When SharePoint is integrated with Microsoft Teams, OneDrive and other applications, it provides employees with more than just your usual intranet solution.

It becomes a digital workplace that offers employees a one-stop-shop for news, information and resources while also providing channels for employee engagement, collaboration, and knowledge sharing. These features are important in the running of a successful business.

Great user experience:

SharePoint sites are mobile friendly and have a contemporary look that employees will enjoy using. Being mobile and remote friendly means that SharePoint supports hybrid-working as it allows on-the-go communication wherever your employees are.

SharePoint intranets can be used as a great communication tool that can target certain departments by incorporating personalised web parts on SharePoint pages that can be accessed by whomever has permissions to do so.

Give staff a voice:

Covid-19 and remote working  has made communication a critical aspect of office life for many people. We need to be able to connect well and on any device, no matter where they are in the world. SharePoint intranets allow us to do this seamlessly and easily.

Microsoft’s Yammer, Teams, and Office 365 Groups can be integrated to facilitate employee engagement and collaboration. SharePoint’s survey and quick poll features make the intranet a viable channel for employees to voice their opinions and provide upward feedback.

Get the latest information:

The main purpose of an intranet is to allow employees to quickly access current and accurate information. With SharePoint document libraries, you provide a means of document retention and version control within the organisation. When these libraries are pulled through to an intranet, they allow employees to access documents via multiple paths and the site search.

Out-of-the-box solution:

SharePoint provides an out-of-the-box intranet solution but can be personalised to meet business needs and scalability for long-term growth. This can be achieved through third-party tools and plug-ins such as Adepteq Intranet Essentials with Omnia. Adepteq Intranet Essentials is a bespoke intranet solution for companies with up to 500 users.
