Benefits YOU Can Reap from SharePoint
All business information is accessible through powerful search tools which can be configured to access information from all relevant locations. This means employees will no longer have to search through multiple drives and folders. This in turn prevents the duplication of data and allows employees to access from anywhere, anytime.
SharePoint allows content management which means information can be kept secure and only shared with the relevant parties. This content management also applies to work flows dealing with web content, documents and records. Assuring all aspects of authoring, publishing, and retention follow company standards. The content management feature gives an advantage when handling project management duties. SharePoint gives individuals the ability to track of all their projects including what tasks need to be done, percentage completed and deadlines. Within this feature the manager has ability to assign tasks to people associated to those projects allowing everyone to track the status of the project.
SharePoint is the perfect tool for sharing, editing and collaborating on documents which eliminates the need to constantly email coworkers with the latest versions of documents. SharePoint also allows document versioning making it clear which version is the most recent.
Other collaborative features allow users to receive updates, share calendars, assign tasks, and share blogs and wikis.
SharePoint works with existing Microsoft Office applications, (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc.) meaning seamless integration and ease of use.
Employees can open up the portal and get the latest news right away which in turn fosters a sense of community.

Personalization features include the ability to customize the content they view and to search for employees based on their skills and experience. Within My Site is the newsfeed. Similar to a newsfeed of Facebook, a user’s newsfeed is where they will see everything that is happening in their environment including all documents, sites, people and blogs they are ‘following’.
