Let me reassure you if you've been debating whether to reach out to a SharePoint service provider or don't know where to begin: CCS engineers offer personalized, cost-effective, all-inclusive choices, especially if you have subscribed to Microsoft 365. Granted that to some extent "SharePoint" and the many versions and all the "streamline your operations possibility" can seem daunting, but trust our clients across sectors when they say they now manage the exchange of project docs efficiently, find the management of transmittals painless and getting started with SharePoint Online portals/intranets easy.
Safe to say that there has been wide adoption of Microsoft 365 in organizations across the globe, very few utilize SharePoint the right way, or some never use it due to a lack of awareness of the power of SharePoint. The success rate of SharePoint implementation has been low, as implementation is usually done without a proper understanding of SharePoint, lack of planning and governance, and inadequate information architecture.
Many organizations misunderstand SharePoint as a file-sharing tool and use it solely for uploading and sharing files and in the long run, end up in chaos making it difficult to find the right version of documents.
Did you know that you can actually have your document management challenges addressed by SharePoint Online? One can save impressive amounts of time and produce measurable results. Transform those messy folders into orderly, neat document libraries. Sharing documents with fellow contributors and searching for specific versions should not become that vicious cycle we all dread. It doesn't have to be as chaotic a picture as painted above. It is only when implementations start with directly creating sites, libraries, etc. that is, without proper planning and architecture in place leading to information overloading and complex navigation rendering the site useless with time. Our approach when addressing your document management needs will ultimately provide you with a custom-built setup that tackles the specific hurdles faced by a company.
Use SharePoint's capabilities consistently and properly, or else it becomes unmanageable. With no clear definition of roles, responsibilities, and guidelines, users and teams may find themselves in dire straits. We have learned in our 15 years as a SharePoint service provider that SharePoint implementations fail, given the absence of proper governance. And we're saying we can help!
