Why SharePoint Online?


Microsoft SharePoint Online can be a great tool and the software can be a gamechanger for businesses of all kinds. SharePoint is an industry leading document management and collaboration tool developed by Microsoft. If you don't know a lot about the SharePoint cloud software, you may not realize just how many benefits it can offer your business.

Let’s get to know SharePoint by covering some of the many benefits and features that SharePoint can bring to your business!

  1. Accessible anywhere
    One great thing about using SharePoint Online along with Office 365 is that you'll have access to all of your important documents and business tools from any device that you're using. You can easily access e-mail, documents, contacts and your intranet using any kind of device whether it is a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop, or a desktop computer. It's easy to see how this could be useful. This can be invaluable for allowing you and your employees to stay on top of tasks and on the same page no matter where you are.
  2. Unmatched Collaboration
    Thanks to SharePoint team members can easily remain connected while being able to share files and updates using document libraries. Collaboration is not only done on an individual basis, but multiple team members can update the same document at the same time.
  3. Reliability with SharePoint Online
    If you're looking for true reliability, you can't do much better than the SharePoint Online software. The software offers a 99.9% uptime and availability SLA guarantee. This is truly phenomenal reliability. You'll have access to a reliable tool that will keep your team going strong without worrying about server problems and issues. Combined with an outstanding support team (handling tickets within one business day), migrating to SharePoint Online sure seems worth the trouble.
  4. Freedom from network sharing
    Within the SharePoint cloud software, OneDrive is a great solution for sharing files. It's much better than typical network sharing and can help free you from its difficulties. OneDrive is a cloud storage solution that gives each user 1 TB of storage data. This means you'll have plenty of space for all your important files and for sharing anything you need to among the members of your team. OneDrive for business allows members of your team to each have a personal site in which they can share and sync documents. As a result, OneDrive makes for a great excuse to move on from troublesome network sharing.
  5. Increased security
    Many businesses are worried about moving to the cloud. Yet, the truth is that Microsoft offers an exceptional amount of security with their cloud software. They have worked hard to provide all the protection necessary for a business. Cloud software can be much more secure than you may realize. It's hard to beat the amount of security your business will get when using the online SharePoint software. Some features include multi-factor authentication, for example, along with the use of servers with undisclosed locations. For any type of business, security is a big deal. However, with the SharePoint cloud software, you can rest assured that your information and data will be as secure as possible.

These are just a few of the many reasons your business should be utilizing the benefits that SharePoint has to offer. For more information, visit our website: CCR SharePoint
