Top 5 Ways SharePoint Improve Collaboration within The Enterprise
Posted: Jun 28, 2018
Today, it is essential that far-flung team members come together in new ways for successful execution of a project. There are instances where project members need to share, review, edit, and provide approval for project documents. Moreover, this demands a best-in-class workplace collaboration mechanism.
Launched in 2001, Microsoft SharePoint is by far one of the best platforms in its infancy for document saving, sharing, management, and version control. It offers an excellent way to connect employees across and people beyond the organization, shares their ideas, and revive the way in which everyone can work together.
Let’s have a brief look at five ways in which we can create a more cooperative work environment with SharePoint:
1. Collaborative Software
SharePoint comes with teamwork capabilities like "team site" or "groupware" for project scheduling, shared mailboxes, social collaboration, with project document saving & collaborative mechanism.
2. Enterprise Content & Document Management
SharePoint allows to store, retrieve, search, archive, track, manage, and report via electronic documents and records. It also integrates with Microsoft Windows and Office to offer the search functions not available in similar applications.
3. Intranet and Social Network
The SharePoint intranet centralizes the enterprise information & applications access, which helps to manage internal communications seamlessly. It offers a new way to capture & share information via tools like wikis with other exclusive benefits including increased employee engagement, better process management, and reduced on-boarding costs.
4. Custom Web Applications
SharePoint's custom development feature adds a service layer for rapid prototyping of Web applications. It provides developers with corporate directories and data sources integration through REST/OData/OAuth and other standards. Developers can use the security and information management capacities of SharePoint across a plethora of development scenarios and platforms.
5. File Hosting Service
The SharePoint Server manages OneDrive for Business, which stores and synchronizes personal documents and allows public as well as private sharing of those documents. It works in combination with other MS Office Servers and Services like Microsoft Exchange for creating a "personal cloud."
No more worries of backing up the desktop files, corporate file sharing on the network or transferring with thumb drives. Enjoy easy internal and external sharing of documents with SharePoint App Development Services for seamless workplace collaboration.
