When it comes to file collaboration and sharing, Microsoft SharePoint leads the way. Part of the Microsoft Office suite of products, it provides an infrastructure to which all company data can be stored centrally, allowing your company files to be accessed from any location.
With so much technology now in operation across a company, what would happen if a device such as a laptop or workstation was lost, stolen or became un-recoverable? How much important data could be lost? If an employee could no longer attend work, would you be able to pick up where they left off? How many copies of the same document exist across your organisation, each with minor changes? When files are stored locally on individual’s machines, this is a real risk.
By ensuring that all of your company data is centralised on an infrastructure such as Microsoft SharePoint, you reduce this risk.
Data can be regularly backed up and accessed from any location, so if a device was to go missing, nothing would be lost (except the cost of replacement).
Microsoft SharePoint has many benefits:
Create folder structures exactly as you would on your own network
Set permission levels at a folder and file level
Users can ‘check out’ documents for editing to ensure only a single version of a document exists – with no risk of overwriting changes.
Files can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection
Easily access your Microsoft SharePoint newsfeed using the Microsoft SharePoint mobile app, available across various devices
Drag file structures from Microsoft SharePoint onto your computer for easy access
Search files...and much more
Microsoft SharePoint can be purchased as a standalone offering, in the Cloud or as part of the Microsoft Office 365 suite.
