Microsoft SharePoint - a systematic approach to teamwork

Information is more than just a helpful tool in the modern business world, it is now part of the means of production determining how competitive a company is. However, valuable information is often scattered widely and is often not easily accessible for all employees. In some cases, the information has not even been disseminated, because uniform rules or systems to facilitate sharing are lacking. This is where Microsoft SharePoint comes in: The solution provides you with a user-friendly portal that allows you to bring together information from different sources, such as documents, tasks, appointments, or emails in one place. The web-based technology makes it possible to use content from your ERP system and from Office or other unstructured contexts and to edit it via a browser on all internet-enabled devices. It allows you to share it with others and to improve communication both within the team as well across the company and beyond.
