SharePoint is a communal hub for your organization and is set up similar to an Intranet.
WITH SharePoint, YOU CAN:
Collect and organize data in forms, lists, libraries, and sites
Display, edit and secure data using views, pages, Microsoft Office applications and permission settings
Use the same document storage, security, and editing infrastructure for multiple purposes
Leverage data to gather robust Business Intelligence reports
Robust and secure document collaboration using MS365's cloud services.
Use SharePoint as your document storage location, and all of the supporting apps which integrate with it.
Collection and tracking of inputs via simple list forms, or more complex formatted PowerApps forms.
Convert paper forms to digital and store them in a list rather than a filing cabinet.
Automation of business processes using file or list form inputs and PowerAutomate workflow modules.
Send out automatic approvals and route notification emails at the touch of a button.
Powerful insights from Business Intelligence reports.
Eliminate spreadsheets and turn data housed in SharePoint into meaningful intelligence and actionable information to drive efficiencies, costs and revenue improvements.
Establishment and dissemination of knowledge via a Company Intranet or Knowledge Base.
Use the WYSIWYG webpage editor to create flexible navigation hierarchies to organize files and secure data.
The most ‘complete’ version of SharePoint encompasses multiple applications and is accessible to everyone for company-wide communications, administrative resources and policies. It also serves as a company bulletin board offering informational pages, lists of events and news items.
Standalone SharePoint applications include:
OneDrive: For personal business use and easy file sharing.
Teams: A shared drive on steroids for departmental or project-specific files and collaboration.
The SharePoint roadmap is different for everyone. It depends on the organization’s maturity and even what kind of data is involved. Typically, one of these three paths is the best way to get started:
File Share (Operations Data or Active Projects) -> Teams Sites
File Share (Administrative Items, Policies/Procedures, FAQs) -> SharePoint Intranet -> Digitization of commonly used forms and processes
User Storage -> OneDrive
Creating an organizational structure for your files is just as important as making them easy for everyone to find.
SharePoint is an editable canvas and provides a variety of ways to display your information in a beautiful and functional layout.
