Hello there, let’s quickly look at five reasons why companies are implementing SharePoint.
Reason number one: they are attempting to utilize the licensing which is included with office 365. What that usually means is that they already have Office 365 implemented and when they go online or on the cloud, they see the icon for SharePoint. So they ask themselves, how can we utilize it? Most of them already have the SharePoint license along with the even or E3, so it becomes a natural choice to look into using SharePoint.
Reason number two: they are looking for better ways to collaborate within their team, within different departments, and across their organization. Whether it’s internal, between different locations, or with external companies, partners, or clients, SharePoint does provide a superior collaboration tool.
Reason number three: they are looking for a secured environment where all their documents and business processes can live. Office 365 with SharePoint Online provides that. It protects companies from malware attacks or loss of their files, thanks to Office 365 performing backups on your documents on a daily basis, up to 30 days.
Reason number four: Office 365 allows you to work remotely. It brings the concept of work anywhere and work on any device to life, so SharePoint naturally brings the same. This allows them to work on the go, work from home, work remotely and work on any device including mobile, iPads, surface, tablets, anything. It fulfills the concept of working anywhere, on any device.
And finally, reason number five: document versioning, or maintaining a single version of a file. First of all, by default SharePoint allows you to keep different versions of a document. So as long as you or other members of your team are accessing and editing a document, it will maintain all separate versions of the same document. However people can always refer to the final version and be reassured that it is the latest version of the document, rather than surfing through various email chains to find the latest version of the document. Based on permissions, they can go to a file location and find the final version of the document. This saves companies time, which is a significant help.
