The SharePoint platform allows you to organize and access on-demand data for your business. Over the last few years, SharePoint has become increasingly popular among large enterprises, and thanks to Office 365, implementing SharePoint has become easier than ever.
Increasingly, enterprises are embracing SharePoint — as a tool that allows them to share, collaborate, and manage information seamlessly with colleagues throughout the office or worldwide. SharePoint is a powerful tool, and many organizations know how to utilize it well. SharePoint allows employees in different departments to keep their data in one place instead of searching for it from department to department.
What is data? It comprises contracts, project details, policies, employee training, and metrics. Data is much more than just a collection of numbers.
An overview of enterprise hunting
Despite using a variety of methods to collect data during projects, HR tasks, and employee training, businesses were insecure about the results they were delivering. Employees must hunt for information rather than consult a trusted data source. There are several ways to hunt.
Often, companies who don’t trust their data hold a lot of meetings about projects, and find information through emails, instead of consulting the system of record.
In the following four ways, SharePoint facilitates business efficiency and allows employees to access accurate information:
● The project management dashboard
The project management dashboard keeps you informed about your projects and helps you stay on top of them. Top-notch project management can expedite your projects, to make them better, cheaper, and with fewer errors. In addition, SharePoint can provide all the necessary documentation and details about the project, plus predict the completion date. IPS Technology Solutions provides expert SharePoint consulting services to help businesses automate and streamline project management.
● The sales contracts and RFPs
SharePoint is used to track government contracts and hundreds of requests for proposals. With SharePoint, an enterprise can analyze RFPs and acquire competitive intelligence at the touch of a button if it possesses the information.
● HR portal for corporate policies & procedures & employee training
An enterprise usually has a sign-in sheet for determining which employees attended mandatory training sessions. The human resources department spent countless hours ensuring that employees completed mandatory government training. It allows employees to self-report through SharePoint, and all the information is automatically reported.
● The performance metrics
A lot of companies monitor the progress of their SharePoint implementation. Moreover, they track how well they’re completing their tasks, how they’re following procedures, and how well they’re winning contracts. Performance metrics reporting under one roof eliminates employees’ need to search around for information.
