SharePoint is an intranet that lets you share and manage content, knowledge, and applications to encourage teamwork, quickly find information, and seamlessly collaborate across the organization. An intranet is a network operating like the World Wide Web but having access restricted to a limited group of authorized users (such as employees of a company).
Why use SharePoint?
Why should you use Microsoft SharePoint? Well, there are various benefits of SharePoint that you may not yet know, and that includes minimizing your errors on your documents and presentations.
SharePoint has an intelligent file storage and sharing capabilities. Let’s put it this way. Imagine yourself storing, accessing, and editing company files while you’re working at work, at home, or anywhere.
SharePoint works perfectly with OneDrive, which gives you access to all your documents, seamlessly integrated with Office and pre-installed with Windows. OneDrive automatically syncs your files to your desktop so you can work on them offline. You’ll also be able to avoid creating mistakes in sharing files because OneDrive can help you track all activities on each file, so you can keep everyone in the team updated.
Another intelligent feature of SharePoint is that you can broadcast your message and share some information resources and relevant news with the team. With SharePoint, you can also connect your sites and portals, use applications that streamline processes, and use Yammer to build a strong collaboration within your organization. Yammer is another collaboration tool that helps you build your relationship with people across your company and uncover conversations, groups, and people to leverage the knowledge of others.
With Microsoft SharePoint, you can now manage files, gather and track data, and keep everyone updated with news, tasks, and deadlines. You’ll also see recommendations and insights that guide you to people, sites, and files instead of spending your time searching.
SharePoint also works well with Delve. Delve is responsible for gathering all your personalized content from OneDrive, SharePoint, Yammer, and other resources.
SharePoint is available on three affordable subscriptions offered by Microsoft 365 business. You can choose to use SharePoint Online Plan 1 ($5.00 user/month), SharePoint Online Plan 2 ($10.00 user/month), and Office 365 Enterprise E3 ($20.00 user/month).
