Microsoft SharePoint Online is a cloud-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office, designed and developed to help organisations share and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and customers. With SharePoint, you can access internal sites, documents, and other information from anywhere.
Using cloud-based technology and Microsoft 365 integration, SharePoint uses ‘Sites’ to provide secure areas for your team to organise and collaborate on content and data. It also allows companies to customise each of these sites to suit your particular needs of content or usage. Files are stored in content libraries and can be synced seamlessly with your devices to allow you to work on the go, with or without an internet connection. They can also be securely shared with people inside and outside your organisation, removing the requirement for email attachments and out of date files.
More than 200,000 organisations and 190 million people have SharePoint for intranets, team sites and content management.
A CENTRAL HUB
The best way to think about SharePoint online is as a cloud based central hub, if utilised, it should be the heart of your workforce, housing all of your files and allowing seamless co-authoring for different groups. It integrates with Teams, Onedrive, Yammer and the Office suite to provide areas to increase productivity and workplace engagement.
