SharePoint and Organization Communications

 

An Intranet/Portal/SharePoint Site becomes a powerful communication tool within a company. Information is presented in a structured, graphical way that is visual and intuitive. Finding and scanning information becomes a simple process. The delivery of information is streamlined.

You can publish key information and make it accessible, getting all personnel connected through the Intranet so that end users go to the Intranet for all sorts of relevant information and collaboration.

With an Intranet in place, employees no longer need to search for needed documents or have to read bunches of e-mail to learn of new company activities for example - this information is simply posted to the Intranet. Information on the company health day can be posted, a signup sheet provided, etc. A news box can be provided for a "Note from the President" or a "Manager's Corner" message. With SharePoint in place, an Activities page is a snap. Delegate permission to update the content of these pages and they become living, vital, communication tools.

To make your Intranet portal come to life with SharePoint call on the Houston based experts at EBS!
