Key Features of SharePoint

Increase Team Productivity
A SharePoint site eliminates logistical restrictions such as time and location and provides team members a flexible, reliable, cost-effective way to increase productivity. Workspace site creation is easy with the use of built-in templates and flexible user management tools. 24/7 access and password protected user access rights ensure that the team members have access to the right information at a time that is convenient for them.

Build an Online Community
SharePoint allows you to create a central location where internal and external team members can access and share information and participate in discussions without the associated cost of building a custom site or using an expensive online solution. A SharePoint site will allow team members to capture and share ideas, information, communication, and documents and facilitate team participation in surveys, discussions, and shared document collaboration. The document collaboration features allow easy check in, check out, and document version control.

SharePoint FeaturesEmpower Team Members

SharePoint site users can quickly locate documents and communicate with key contacts and project leaders. Interfacing with Microsoft Office applications, users can read and edit site lists, events, documents, and task assignments. They can also receive alerts notifying them when a document has been added or edited.  With Microsoft Office, team members can view SharePoint site event calendars simultaneously with their personal calendars and create meeting-specific workspaces to augment group appointments.

Improve Business Intelligence
SharePoint provides business intelligence (BI) capabilities to every employee, so they can share, control, and reuse business information in order to make better business decisions. The BI features of Office SharePoint Server 2007 provide Web and programmatic access to published Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheets, programmatic reuse of critical line-of-business data, and easy development of Web-based BI dashboards that can incorporate rich, data-bound key performance indicators (KPIs), Web Parts, and published spreadsheets.

The financial investment and overhead of owning and maintaining servers and software applications in-house is substantial. By outsourcing, SMB's can now reap the benefits that up to a just few years ago were reserved for large corporations, plus added advantages:

  • Low cost-of-ownership and cost predictability
  • Immediate deployment
  • Scale up or down as needed, with no risk
  • Anytime, anywhere access to information
  • Business-class collaboration
  • Secure and reliable performance for the highest productivity
