Have you ever found yourself sending the same email attachment
over and over again?
Have you dug through your emails laboriously, trying to pick up a
conversation where you left off?
What about tracking changes you made to documents with versions?
Would you like to setup approval and/or collect signatures
workflows on document creation and changes?
Do you have a requirement to control how a document is disposed
How do we setup a centralized Calendar and Meeting system?
It sure would be nice to have a controlled and secure system to
deliver Intranet information by our Department without the need for developers

These are the kinds of problems that SharePoint is designed to
minimize. It’s meant to transform intranet communications into a seamless and
comprehensive experience. It automates all the redundancy out of your
organization’s workflow, so that you can focus on your core organization’s
operations. In other words, it’s a way to transform technology from a
distraction into a catalyst.
SharePoint’s core functions are to:
1. Collaborate – Easily create teams
that communicate effectively
2. Organize – Simplify the process
of finding information in documents and conversations
3. Share – Make sure everybody who
needs to be up to date on something easily is
4. Manage – Easily track and manage
Finally, one of the primary benefits of SharePoint over the
alternatives is the fact that it’s powered by Microsoft, so it works together
seamlessly with Office and Outlook.
Systems helped us to setup an Intranet Portal with SharePoint that replaced
our outdated Portal solution. We can disseminate information in a secure and
controlled fashion that is driven from data posted from the different
departments. This is all accomplished without IT Developers being involved.”
