Businesses thrive on sharing information, working together and finding the right resources at the right time. SharePoint Online helps you do this by providing a single place to store and share information in the cloud. It is flexible enough to adapt to meet the demands of your business but includes all the controls you need to safeguard your data.
SharePoint Online is ideal for document management. You can create intranets and portals, control who can see and edit any file, share documents and manage version control effectively. Users can access files wherever they are, across multiple devices enabling co-authoring of files in real time.
You can even share content with people outside of your organisation, like suppliers, partners or contractors, even if they don’t have a SharePoint Online or an Office 365 licence. SharePoint Online boasts powerful search capabilities too so you can find resources quicker, get the answers you need and find existing documents that you can adapt to your needs without having to start from scratch.
Teams who need to collaborate closely on specific projects can set up their own sites, add details of project team members and create shared calendars with milestones, deadlines and meeting dates to keep everyone informed.
SharePoint Online comes into its own for eDiscovery. You can create your own eDiscovery Centre in SharePoint Online, where you can create cases, which are SharePoint sites that allow you to identify, hold, search, and export content from Exchange mailboxes, SharePoint sites, and searchable file shares.
As SharePoint Online is hosted in the cloud, you’ll always be up to date with the latest functionality and versions without the hassle of buying and installing upgrades or managing additional servers on premises.
As part of Office 365, SharePoint Online benefits from its enterprise-level security and reliability. Microsoft guarantees the highest level of availability for Office 365 from their UK data centres by offering a financially backed Service Level Agreement. Data loss prevention capabilities and a team of security experts monitoring servers around the clock will safeguard your data.
