Intranets 101: What You Need to Know

As a Microsoft Certified Partner, we receive requests from a variety of companies to improve business practices with Intranets. And over and over, we’ve seen that Microsoft SharePoint is the number one solution on the market.

What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a software platform software that helps simplify the sharing of information in a company. It’s like creating a virtual community that facilitates information sharing and collaborative working.

SharePoint Can Help Your Bank Succeed By:

  • Fostering Collaboration Between Teams:
    With SharePoint, you can create internal websites, “team sites”, or “intranets” to help teams collaborate on a project. All of your corporate information can be stored and accessed by everyone from senior management to the credit and lending departments or sales associates, so all of your staff can work seamlessly together.
  • Increasing Productivity:
    Digitized and automated business processes, customized dashboards, secure digital certificates, integration with familiar Microsoft products, and elimination of manual data entry are just a few of the ways SharePoint can helps increase productivity.
  • Saving Time:
    Creating automated workflows through SharePoint (i.e. vacation requests, performance evaluations, expense reports submission and review, credit review and approval) can significantly save your employees’ and your valuable time. Research shows that without a centralized Intranet portal it can take up to three times longer to perform certain tasks.
  • Enhancing Security:
    Using SharePoint, you can centralize secure communications at your bank, financial institution or any other business, and customize portals to put access limits on high-security content such as your customers’ sensitive account details.
  • Improving Customer Service:
    SharePoint can help give your staff better access to accurate and consistent information—which can lead to enhanced levels of customer service. And because it helps save time and increase productivity, it allows you and your staff to concentrate on the most important aspect of your business: your customers.
  • Promoting Employee Self-Sufficiency:
    SharePoint lets you create centralized secure communications that have relevant information readily available to your organization. That means your employees are able to become more self-efficient by finding the information they need without the help of other team members.

Our goal is to use advanced technology to make your business run more efficiently, and SharePoint is an excellent way to do so. If you’d like to learn more about how SharePoint can benefit your bank, financial institution or any other type of company, please contact us today for a free quote.
