SharePoint offers 4 key features to help increase office productivity:
- Simple sharing and seamless collaboration:
With OneDrive and SharePoint, you and your colleages have the ability to store important files, giving you the ability to work from wherever, whenever, and on any device, as well as being able to then share these files inside and outside your organisation. Not only this, but given permission, you also have the ability to find, co-author, and update files added to OneDrive and SharePoint by your colleagues.
"SharePoint empowers teamwork with dynamic and productive team sites for every project team, department, and division."
- Engage and inform your organisation:
SharePoint provides your organisation with a drive for communication, allowing you to share resources and news with your teams and organisation. It gives you the ability to build portals to increase engagement between teams, connecting them to all sorts of valuable content and expertise. With the SharePoint mobile app, this way of working can be achieved no matter where you are and no matter the device.
"Build cohesion and inform your employees throughout your intranet. Drive organisational efficiency by sharing common resources and applications on home sites and portals."
- Harness collective knowledge:
With intelligent and powerful ways to discover new information, SharePoint offers a rich content management system, that encourages conversations and collaboration between your teams. With real-time query suggestions and personalised results, SharePoint offers endless ways to leverage your teams' knowledge.
"You're just a click away from what you're looking for, with powerful search and intelligent ways to discover information, expertise, and insights to inform decisions and guide action."
- Transform business processes:
Combine SharePoint, PowerApps and Power Automate, and you have a powerful solution to gathering and magaing data and files. Not only this, but SharePoint and Power Automate give you the ability to automate repetitive tasks and connect to and integrate data sources and services. If that isn't enough, bring together SharePoint and PowerApps and you have a tool that can create apps that can transform your business.
"Accelerate productivity by transforming processes - from simple tasks like notifications and approvals to complex operational workflows."
"More than 20,000 organisations and 190 million people have SharePoint for intranets, team sites and content management."
