Now, why should your organisation choose SharePoint hosting? Here’s a list of 5 benefits to using a hosted SharePoint:

1. Improved Team Productivity

Give your team members the tools the need to succeed with team workspaces, co-ordinated calendars, documents, announcement and alerts. Offline synchronisation functions also allow users to stay in the loop while mobile.

2. Guaranteed Information Security

Even when documents are saved in the Cloud, their integrity is ensured. SharePoint provides multiple security options including the option to require users to checkout documents before editing, set document/item-level security and to give you the ability to view changes and restore to previous versions if you wish.

3. User Interface

SharePoint’s interface has enhanced views and simplified menus for ultimate ease of use. It also features full integration with the Microsoft Office system so you can use Word, Excel, etc. within your SharePoint.

4. Customised Solutions

Application templates let businesses build functions for specific processes and tasks.

5. Better Use of Information

SharePoint’s user-friendly search tool means that users can find existing files on a chosen topic in seconds. It also allows you to share information with colleagues quickly and easily.
