With SharePoint 2013, a simplified user experience helps staff organise, sync and share content; while new social capabilities make it easy for them to share ideas, keep track of what colleagues are working on, and find experts they never knew existed.
Even better ROI
What many businesses don’t realise, however, is the extent to which their investment in SharePoint can then even save more time and money by streamlining processes, integrating with line-of-business applications and building sophisticated websites.
For this reason, ICS Solutions has launched a video to show how companies can achieve a better return on their investment in SharePoint and maximise everyone’s productivity - from CEO through Sales and Marketing to the IT department - by having access to the right information, at the right time, and in the right format.
One by one, the video examines the challenges most businesses face in collaborating and sharing information effectively – not just between employees, but also with suppliers, contractors, partners and customers. In a highly informative five-minute animation, it then illustrates how SharePoint can remove inefficiency, frustration and cost.
The video also describes step-by-step how this versatile technology is already helping many organisations increase sales whilst giving customers and staff a better experience by eliminating time-consuming, error-prone paperwork and by creating sophisticated extranet sites and dashboards that extend productivity beyond the company firewall.
Using non-technical terminology, it describes how every element of a business can use SharePoint to improve its performance:
A proven formula
As their budgets get smaller, IT managers, too, have much to gain from SharePoint 2013. Thanks to the secure technology they already have, they can give the business what’s required to increase its competitiveness – without needing to manage endless new business applications or have their team‘s time taken up with complex integration projects.
With ICS’s preformed Extranet Baseline Accelerators, moreover, employees themselves can create extranet workspaces at the flick of a switch for sharing content and working on projects with colleagues internally or externally. This and other Baseline accelerators are all part of ICS’s new SharePoint Adoption Framework 2013, a proven formula for helping businesses seize the SharePoint Advantage.
