No matter what size of business, keeping communication flowing between your workforce isn’t always the easiest of tasks. Finding an interesting method of communicating is very important and with the right technology you can make life in your organisation much easier.
While there are numerous digital tools out there to help, a SharePoint intranet is a powerful asset we believe you should consider. Here are our top 5 benefits of a SharePoint intranet and why we believe it’s the ideal solution for any business.
Seamless collaboration across your organisation
SharePoint has always been a robust collaboration platform, and over the years this has only improved. SharePoint empowers teamwork with dynamic and productive team sites for every project team, department and division. It allows you to collaborate effortlessly and securely with team members inside and outside your organisation, across PCs, Macs, and mobile devices.
Customisable and scalable
One of the biggest benefits of a SharePoint intranet is its flexibility and scalability. Used by companies of all sizes, it supports internal communication, collaboration, content services and more.
SharePoint is also customisable, making it easy to create an intranet or even a digital workplace. At Bridgeall we have come across clients who may want to avoid customisation where they can, but it remains an option for particular use cases.
A range of our of the box options
When it comes to variety, SharePoint delivers. Although you can now deliver an intranet out of the box, there is a now a mature market of SharePoint intranet-in-a-box products that work alongside SharePoint to provide additional site templates, page layouts, ready built web parts, stronger governance and additional capabilities, allowing you to deliver exceptional intranets in a short space of time.
Easy integration with M365 and other Microsoft tools
Traditionally SharePoint has always been a strong collaboration platform, mainly through team sites. While Microsoft Teams is now the more popular of the two, a SharePoint intranet can still bring collaboration into the heart of the intranet experience and the daily flow of work. Team sites are still available, but easy integration of Microsoft Teams and Yammer means that the collaboration continues to be part of a SharePoint intranet.
Document sharing and management
When it comes to collaboration within in organisation most will agree that information distribution is almost always document centric. While that is perhaps not always ideal, this is usually the case. SharePoint’s robust document library capabilities therefore have always been a valuable part of SharePoint, allowing for document sharing and distribution, knowledge management, collaboration and more. The easy integration of SharePoint libraries into your SharePoint intranet has always been a strong capability that is sometimes overlooked.
These are just some of the benefits you can expect from implementing a SharePoint intranet within your organisation. If you’d like to learn more, you can contact our team or download our complete guide to SharePoint below.
