Top 5 Business Benefits of Microsoft SharePoint September 15, 2020December 2, 2019 Whether you’re an SME looking to streamline your workflow, an emerging company with an existing system in place, or a multinational organization with uniquely demanding business needs and expectations: SharePoint can be your go-to ‘Swiss Army Knife’ business strategy solution and enterprise-level collaboration application rolled into one highly customizable platform. This article highlights five ways your business can benefit from SharePoint. Access Anywhere The rise of smartphones and tablets have revolutionized traditional desk jobs which led to the creation of new workforce portfolios that go hand-in-hand with full-time employees, freelancers, gig workers, managed service personnel, and part-timers. SharePoint is designed to allow all members of your organization ‘log in’ and get work done – using Microsoft Office or a web browser – at any time of day, from anywhere in the world. They can access, edit, and share documents without the need to rush to the office or use remote-accessible VPN software. This completely integrated collaborative service makes it possible to work from home or on-the-go – even for your boss – paving the way for a seamless balance of flexibility and productivity for the untethered mobile-powered workforce. Best-in-Class Security As data breaches become more prevalent in the digital age, it is more important than ever to make sure all sensitive business information is secured and protected. With SharePoint, you can safeguard your data from unauthorized access, hacking attempts, and exploitation vulnerability from the moment you store the data into the platform – even while at rest or in transit. Upload data within the intranet but limit third-party access Manage user permissions and permission levels without divulging sensitive corporate information Create data retention and document expiration policies Moreover, SharePoint’s native security capabilities provide constant data validation to keep all information inventories healthy, always available, and highly recoverable. Business Intelligence Tools Does your organization have a huge amount of data that you want to turn into business insights? Do you need help in making better-informed decisions without having to depend on an information technology administrator? SharePoint’s advanced business intelligence and insight tools empower companies with easy-to-understand, highly-actionable business information – all stored in one user-friendly central location. No more precious hours wasted on complex data analysis reports – and certainly no need to rely on gut feelings and anecdotes. Capture, transform, and share vital information and impressively-practical reports – all risk-free and in real-time. With SharePoint’s BI solutions, you can ensure that everyone is pulling in the same direction – bringing the laggards and late adopters up to the level of learners and leaders. The result? Not only do you get fast and efficient data accessibility, but you also speed up your capability to track business performance and progression towards company goals. Cost Control Whether you’re always pressed for resources or you only want to pay for what you will use, SharePoint is a cost-effective document management system – complete with all the cutting-edge computing technologies and hardware innovations at a reasonable price. Eliminate expensive licensing fees, gain access to scalable options without the high upfront IT costs, and enjoy all updates free of charge. No wonder it’s considered one of Microsoft’s best-selling products for any-sized business. Integration with Microsoft Teams By integrating SharePoint with Teams, Microsoft scored a considerable advantage over other players in the industry when it comes to facilitating communication and collaboration for businesses and companies. Manage and organize files, set time-saving automations with tools and apps, or even build on top of it – optimizing teamwork within your organization. This is something your business can not do without – and SharePoint can help you achieve that. SharePoint can revolutionize the way you work, and you will need the expertise to be able to optimize its benefits for your business.
