London, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 October 2011
PointBeyond is proud to present a thought leadership article, written by company director, Dr Ian Woodgate; “Three Ways Building Societies can use Microsoft SharePoint: Find, Share and Manage Society Information.”
Based on PointBeyond’s experience of working with and talking to numerous Building Societies, this article identifies three potential ways in which SharePoint can be used successfully and easily within societies:
- Searching Information, Policies, Procedures, and Manuals
- Communicating News and Announcements
- Managing Projects
It includes the benefits for staff and customers, and uses Building Society based working situations to help build a business case for SharePoint.
Microsoft SharePoint is, at a fundamental level, a software product that allows organisations to manage documents, information, and business activities. It has many different capabilities, so knowing how to get the most from it, and where to start can be a challenge. The article also discusses how societies can implement SharePoint in the most cost effective manner, and briefly reviews other potential uses of SharePoint.
