Since its inception, no Microsoft product has been through so many designs, capabilities and ideologies as SharePoint. Not to mention reputational shifts.
As a document management service, SharePoint has few rivals. Security, data retention and protection, intelligent search and Office Online all combine to provide a world class experience. On any device. Anywhere in the world.
Since 2017, Microsoft have started taking SharePoint seriously again. Every organisation has had a bad SharePoint implementation at some point, and Microsoft will shoulder some of the blame for that. But modern SharePoint is finally the product you’ve been promised for all these years.
SharePoint is also a top class Content Management System, and with modern Communication Sites, with easy to use pages and widgets, organisations worldwide are turning to SharePoint again for their intranet.
If you’re still using Windows as your document management system, or an on-premise version of SharePoint, you need to move to SharePoint Online. It’s as simple as that.
SharePoint Online document storage powers Office 365. Whether you add files to Teams, Planner, using your mobile or tablet, through the browser, or via a synced library in Windows, everything is stored in SharePoint Online. Your workforce will have the choice to work and be productive in a way that suits them.
‘Simple’ has never before been used to describe SharePoint – until now! Drag and drop tools, three click sharing, messages and instructions in conversational language, and the integration of Office Online are all intuitive and fast. Even creating pages with simple building blocks can be learned in minutes.
Highly configured SharePoint environments with custom scripts that sent fear into the hearts of anyone who had to perform upgrades are a thing of the past. With SharePoint Online you’re subscribing to constant feature and security updates, automatically applied by Microsoft. This is the last version of SharePoint you’ll ever need.
