SharePoint is a web-based system that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, it was primarily used for intranet and document management but it has evolved significantly over the last 18 years.

In this article we learn more about the transformative capabilities of the latest SharePoint version.

In short, SharePoint allows you to share and manage content, knowledge, and applications to empower teamwork, quickly find information, and seamlessly collaborate across the organisation.

The four key features of SharePoint include:

Simple sharing and seamless collaboration

SharePoint empowers teamwork with dynamic and productive team sites for every project team, department, and division. Share files, data, news, and resources. Customise your site to streamline your team’s work. Collaborate effortlessly and securely with team members inside and outside your organization, across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.

Engage and inform your organization

Build cohesion and inform your employees throughout your intranet. Drive organisational efficiency by sharing common resources and applications on portals. Tell your story with beautiful communication sites. And stay in the know with personalized news in SharePoint home and the SharePoint mobile apps.

Harness collective knowledge

You’re just a click away from what you are looking for, with powerful search and intelligent ways to discover information, expertise, and insights to inform decisions and guide action. SharePoint’s rich content management, along with valuable connections and conversations surfaced in Yammer, enable your organisation to maximise the velocity of knowledge.

Transform business processes

Accelerate productivity by transforming processes—from simple tasks like notifications and approvals to complex operational workflows. With SharePoint lists and libraries, Microsoft Flow, and PowerApps, you can create rich digital experiences with forms, workflows, and custom apps for every device.

As you can see, the evolution of SharePoint can bring great benefits to your organisation and is already included in most Office 365 subscriptions.
