As our company started to grow, it was immediately evident that we were lacking systems for each department and function in the company. Even the simple things, such as taking notes for an incoming lead/customer, needed an upgrade.We were writing down the information of pieces of paper, which were then handed over the relevant person but shortly lost thereafter.We were missing out computer maintenance dates, forgetting meetings, double booking the boardroom, you know, the same issues most companies deal with.

Once we had realised our issues, we then decided to find some software that would help sort this out.It was extremely easy to find software to cater for each specific function we were trying to “upgrade”, but the major issues were the disparate islands of data that would collect and then the new arising issue of trying to bridge this data together.

Our search didn’t take long before we went over to SharePoint and decided to test some of its features and seeing what I had to offer. Well, we were blown away! Some of the reasons are listed below:

Manage multiple companies or divisions.

We found out that Office365 SharePoint offered up to 2000 sub sites (which I think has increased already) which meant we had the ability to separate all our divisions seamlessly, as well as add on other companies so we didn’t have to deploy a whole brand-new SharePoint while those companies grew.

Access, Approvals, Groups, Permissions.

With SharePoint, the possibilities of having full control over everything is endless. We can restrict certain users from subsites, documents, forms or whatever else we wish. The ability to create groups of people around a central subject is easy and the approval process for just about anything has helped us tremendously. Everything last thing that goes in and out of the company goes through SharePoint now with approvals attached.

Powerful Software

Apart from the standard Office365 that the entire world has been using for years on end, Office 365 SharePoint, being a Microsoft product, has a plethora of other software such as Vision, Dynamix CRM, Visual Studio that can used to build more solutions for your company and bridge on seamlessly to your SharePoint deployment.

Although we were first a little nervous at getting SharePoint and trying to harness it correctly for our company, a couple of years we can confidently say that we cannot live without this software, and cant imagine where our business would have been if we hadn’t of started with.
