Why Use SharePoint?


Businesses are understandably resistant to new tools when things already seem to be
going well, and may become even more conservative when things take a turn for the worse.

That’s one reason why businesses who have heard of SharePoint may decide against implementing it.
We feel that’s a mistake for most businesses, and we like what our partner P2 Automation recently said about why businesses need Sharepoint.

Have you ever found yourself sending the same email attachment over and over
again? Have you dug through your emails laboriously, trying to pick up a
conversation where you left off? What about tracking changes you made to
documents? Did you have to remind your employees to enable tracked changes,
or ask them to highlight the changes themselves?

These are the kinds of problems that SharePoint is designed to minimize. It’s meant to
transform intranet communications into a seamless and comprehensive
experience. It automates all the redundancy out of your business’s workflow, so
that you can focus on your core business operations. In other words, it’s a way
to transform technology from a distraction into a catalyst.

SharePoint’s core functions are to:
1. Collaborate – Easily create teams that communicate effectively
2. Organize – Simplify the process of finding information in documents and
conversations
3. Share – Make sure everybody who needs to be up to date on something easily is
4. Manage – Easily track and manage projects simultaneously

Finally, one of the primary benefits of SharePoint over the alternatives is the fact that
it’s powered by Microsoft, so it works together seamlessly with Office and Outlook.
