SharePoint Online is a robust document storage and collaboration tool that, until Office 365, was only practical for Enterprise organizations.  Today, SharePoint is included in most Office 365 Business plans, expanding into the small and mid-size business market for the first time.  SharePoint is the solution to many communication and document storage challenges, and learning its capabilities will pay off for organizations that are willing to learn.What Is SharePoint Online?

SharePoint Online is a simple and powerful file sharing, storage, and collaboration tool within Office 365.   However, many businesses still don't understand what SharePoint is, and how it can help them with the issues they struggle with everyday.  Let's talk about some of the modern business problems that SharePoint can solve.

Share and revise documents together

With SharePoint Online, workers in different locations will be able to easily share, revise, and track documents such as customer proposals, lists, and master schedules.  Real time document sharing is a game changer for team collaboration, eliminating documents sent as email attachments thus allowing a single copy of a document, with edits automatically tracked by version history.  Securely share content and gather immediate feedback from colleagues with SharePoint Online.  

Create a centralized data repository

With its enhanced search functionality, SharePoint provides the ideal cloud storage solution for business.  Sharepoint's centralized data repository allows employees to access only the documents, PowerPoint presentation, departmental calendars, and training resources stored on the company SharePoint Site from anywhere, on any device.   Security controls are implemented by the IT Admin, and user access is determined by the permissions they put in place.  Consolidating all of your data on SharePoint Online allows for a well organized knowlege repository where documents can be found quickly allowing faster decision making.

Enable seamless collaboration across the organization

SharePoint enables secure and effortless collaboration inside and outside your organization. SharePoint provides Intranet capabilities to drive organizational communication and increase productivity.  Convey important company news, share calendars, incorporate chat and ask employees to provide their input.  SharePoint is a robust collaboration tool that offers countless ways for companies to knock down barriers and collaborate in real time.   People working in different locations, are enabled to co-author a single document in real time, then store it in a shared location for the team to access when they need it.  It is impossible to list all the ways collaboration within SharePoint can transform your organization.  The best way to learn is to dive in and watch your business grow.
