4 Benefits of Using SharePoint Online

Email | Print

Deciding to move your business management system to the cloud is a big step, and not one you should take lightly. One of the major concerns businesses often have about moving to the cloud is whether or not their cloud software will include the same quality of features available in their local or on-premise software.

Microsoft did not race to the cloud the way some of its competitors did because it wanted to ensure customers would get an authentic experience from Microsoft cloud offerings. Office 365 goes far beyond what people normally expect from cloud software, delivering useful real-world business solutions without the traditional expense and maintenance one typically incurs with on-premise solutions.

SharePoint Online gives you the same quality and features you would expect if you had installed SharePoint Server yourself. Among those features are:


  • Document management – Share and collaborate on documents with colleagues; search for documents easily; use SharePoint Worskpace to access documents offline; Create Microsoft Office documents and save them in SharePoint Online; version control, monitoring, and reporting
  • Communication – Keep people in sync; manage projects; communicate in real-time with colleagues; share company news and important information updates
  • Security – Allows document-level permissions for sensitive data, risk-based business threat security assessment, and compliance framework to ensure security controls are properly implemented.
  • Office Integration – seamless integration with the other components of Microsoft Office 365: Office Professional Plus, Office Web Apps, and Microsoft Lync Online.
  • With Microsoft SharePoint Online, you get the flexibility and security you have come to expect from on-premise applications with the mobility and hands-off IT you enjoy only in the cloud.
