As biologically highly evolved creatures, humans continue to evolve and adapt to various adversities. When the Pandemic happened, we were stunned, but not for long. Though there were lockdowns across the globe and production and work stopped everywhere, we did not stop; we learned to adapt. The work-from-home culture happened with the help of the internet.
Now, working was not an individual process, it was teamwork, and people had to collaborate to bring out the best results. With people staying at home and keeping a safe distance from each other, the need for a holistic platform to help teams meet, collaborate, share and edit files and products together was needed. Microsoft, one of the leading software producers, rose to the occasion and created sharepoint solutions. A collaborative platform to make work easier for employers and employees.
Features of SharePoint
The need for a separate platform was to ensure cyber safety as confidential files had to be shared online, and there is always the threat of digital theft. Therefore, an exclusive platform accessed only by your employees is needed.
- SharePoint takes care of all these and provides solutions for various other solutions.
- It acts as a content management system and gives access to employees to edit, collaborate and work on projects and documents in real-time. The editing is recorded for further assessments.
- The sharing of files happens through the Intranet, therefore is secure and safe from the wide web.
- All documents are managed and stored on the site and are made available for all the employees for further reference and corrections.
- It provides an integrated platform and helps engage every employee in the same place.
- It also provides safety against email phishing and other malicious activities via email. SharePoint has an email security system that checks emails to save you from domain impersonation, identity theft, spoofs, spam, etc.
With the workforce now dispersed globally, this kind of an integrated system brings them together and makes managing all the work possible and easy.
