SharePoint is a team collaboration platform that has a variety of uses. SharePoint creates a private site for your company that can be accessed by staff with their Office 365 username and password.
SharePoint can be used to store required files in the cloud which can be accessed by staff members on any computer or mobile device. SharePoints document libraries can be used as a replacement for network shares and can be synced with computers so that mobile workers can have offline access to their information.
Build a central location for training materials, best practice information and company procedures, easily accessible in your company intranet.
SharePoint Lists look similar to spreadsheets and are an easy and powerful way to record and track information. With SharePoint Lists, you can keep an up-to-date list of preferred contractors and contacts, or store important information not suited to your existing business software. Setting an alert on a SharePoint list will let you know when something has been added or changed.
Collaboration with OneNote
Staff can use the OneNote notebook included in the company SharePoint site to collaborate, brainstorm and record information in a less structured way than using a SharePoint List. Users can access and edit the OneNote notebook from the OneNote apps on Apple, Android and Windows mobile devices, as well as any PC or Mac. OneNote notebooks sync automatically, so that a staff member could be taking notes in an off-site meeting, while another staff member on another computer or device would see the notes appear in real time. OneNote can also be used to store documents, images, screenshots, tabled data or important information for mobile employees.
The company news feed can be used for staff discussions or announcements and includes email notifications.
Privacy and Security
SharePoint allows organisations to manage security and privacy settings on a companywide, role based, or granular user level. Control the levels of access and editing capabilities that all users have, and remotely wipe lost or stolen devices.
