Benefits of SharePoint
Why SharePoint is the Go-To Process Digitization Platform for Companies of All Sizes
SharePoint is the hidden gem in the business arsenal of companies of all sizes. Find out what makes the platform the go-to digitization solution for you. Discover how to use the platform to its full potential.
No matter how big a company is, finding the right digitization strategy is never easy. This is mainly due to the fact that there are countless ways to digitize processes.
The two options that most people probably think of first are
- the introduction of a standard tool or
- the development of a custom solution by your own IT team or external developers.
Both options have pros and cons.
A rather unknown option for process digitization is the use of SharePoint. Many people only know SharePoint as the chaotic file repository where nobody has an overview over anything.
SharePoint can do so much more. In fact, SharePoint is the go-to process digitization platform for companies of all sizes. You can find out what qualifies SharePoint for this and what you should know if you rely on SharePoint.
A hidden gem in your business arsenal
Do you use Microsoft Teams? Then you're also using SharePoint in the background. Did you know that?
Most companies, regardless of size, already have access to SharePoint as part of their Microsoft365 suite. So if you already have the powerful SharePoint platform, why only use it unconsciously in the background? Doesn't it make more sense to exploit its full potential? This is probably the best argument for the finance team: no additional tool costs. Amazing!
Build a digital hub in Microsoft Teams
The fact that SharePoint runs in the background of Microsoft Teams at companies of all sizes brings additional advantages.
Especially since the pandemic, Microsoft Teams has been used daily in numerous companies of all sizes. Users are familiar with it. This is exactly what you can use when building your own digital hub.
You can access all processes digitized with SharePoint via Microsoft Teams. They are therefore directly integrated into Teams. Users don't have to leave Teams. All processes are therefore bundled in one place. No new login is required. Complex and lengthy onboarding is not necessary.
Customization at your fingertips
One of SharePoint’s most compelling features is its flexibility. Unlike custom-developed platforms that demand substantial investment, SharePoint allows for tailored solutions without the hefty price tag.
In combination with low-code platforms, such as skybow, there are numerous customization options available. They transform SharePoint solutions into perfectly fitting workflows. Almost all business processes can be digitized and automated. Such low-code platforms for SharePoint can be used by companies of all sizes. They're much more affordable than standard tools that don't fit your process or custom development.
This flexibility of SharePoint is a game-changer for companies of all sizes that operate on tighter budgets. You can enjoy the benefits of a customized solution that aligns with your unique processes.
Efficient collaboration and enhanced productivity
SharePoint’s seamless integration with Microsoft365 tools facilitates a collaborative environment. It’s not just a platform; it's a productivity enhancer. All tools in the M365 suite can be easily integrated into the digital workflows.
Here are just a few examples:
- You can send Microsoft Teams messages or emails to remind you of open tasks or status changes.
- Tasks can be easily transferred to the user's Microsoft Planner.
- You are able to work together on documents in real time, share them and benefit from version control.
But not only the tools of the M365 suite can be linked with the SharePoint solutions. Thanks to HTTP API calls, data from any tool can be used in the solutions.
(By the way, this feature is already included in the license costs for skybow and doesn't incur any extra costs. 😉)
