Empower your team to do more with an efficient, collaborative and seamless experience on SharePoint
What is Microsoft SharePoint?
Microsoft SharePoint is a one-stop shop for your document and collaboration needs. SharePoint is a cloud-based service that helps organisations to manage a variety of things including sharing content and applications. However, we know that what you can do with it goes beyond just that; you can build better business processes, achieve compliance, and keep control of all your important digital assets in one place.
What can you do with Microsoft SharePoint?
- Create pages, document libraries, and lists for intranet sites.
- Add web elements (news, maps, social media feeds etc.) to your content to make it more personalised.
- Use a team or communication site to provide vital pictures, news, and updates.
- Find, follow, and search for sites, files, and people throughout your organisation.
- Create workflows, forms, and lists to help you keep track of your everyday activities.
- Sync and save your data on the cloud so that anyone can collaborate with you in a secure manner.
- Use the mobile app to keep up with the latest news while on the road.
- Integrate with other Microsoft apps, such as Microsoft Teams.

SharePoint as your organisation’s intranet (Your Communication Site)
SharePoint’s ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality makes building an intranet for your organisation a breeze. You can help with employee management, learning and enabling them to self-serve on the platform. Its strong digital workplace management makes collaboration and project management easier, as well as its communication and even social features. Think of your SharePoint communication site as an internal company-only internet that everyone can use and be part of. Better yet, compliance is built in, so you’ve got less to worry about.
The low-code/no-code nature of SharePoint means sites are much easier to create, and flexible enough to address whatever your organisation’s needs are.

SharePoint and Microsoft Teams
You can also build a SharePoint Teams site to further enhance your employee engagement and experience. The SharePoint Teams site will help connect your team to the information and apps they rely on using daily. It enables collaboration on projects together and is typically connected to a Microsoft 365 group as well as Microsoft Teams.
SharePoint document management
SharePoint enables your team to work more collaboratively, by not only storing important documents, but by allowing your team to manage each version of those documents and control the security around them. In fact, at TSG we’ve created a SharePoint EDRM solution. We’ve used this extensively in the housing sector, and you can read more about how it helped one of our housing customers here.
