Now that more and more people are working from home, a digital, central point is of great importance. An online environment where all employees can work together with their colleagues in a structured and efficient way and have access to applications and content. We are of course talking about Microsoft SharePoint online. This program offers many advantages for companies with SharePoint development. That is why we have listed 5 advantages of Microsoft SharePoint Online for you.
Easy management of external users
Employees of your company can share folders, documents and sites with external parties. This can be done via a Microsoft account that is linked to a business email. Files and sites can also be shared by creating a ‘Guest Link’ to which permissions can be attached, such as ‘view only’ or ‘edit’. In the latter case, logging in is not necessary.
Then it is easy to switch it on and off. You can determine per person and per file who can and cannot access your data and files.
Thanks to multiple security layers, you are assured of excellent security at Microsoft. From both physical security at data centers and digitally through BitLocker encryption and security of data traffic with SSL via HTTP for their servers. In addition, employees (or external ICT parties) as administrators of your SharePoint Online also have the option to set up 2FA (two factor authentication) for all users of the online environment. And if something does go wrong, perhaps because an employee accidentally deleted an important file, then you never have to worry about losing data thanks to automatic backups. Feel free to ask us about the possibilities!
Flexible and user-friendly
When you work with Microsoft products, you are assured that you are working with the best and most powerful platforms. From managing information flows and documents to working together online: it is a particularly versatile and flexible platform. It is both user-friendly and flexible: there are many possibilities. Setting up the environment can therefore be as extensive as you often want it. This does mean that if you want to get the most out of the platform, it is best to engage an external party that has experience with this, such as an IT point of contact.
Scalability of Microsoft SharePoint Online
With Microsoft SharePoint Online you never pay too much. After all, you only pay for what you need. You can add and remove users from your subscription per month. This also means that when your company grows fast, SharePoint Online can easily grow with your organization.
Work from anywhere with Microsoft SharePoint Online
Whether you are at home, at the office or on the road: you always have Microsoft SharePoint at hand. This way you always have quick access to your files and e-mails and, wherever you are, you can always make the latest changes, forward an important file to a colleague and more.
