Collaboration and document management turning out as key challenges

Do you know that 75% employers rate team work and collaboration as very important for them?
According to Gartner Group Consultancy, Laserfiche, and eCopy, Inc. it was found that $30 is the average cost to file one document, $120 to find a misfiled document and $220 to reproduce a lost document.

Businesses today have grown in complexity, which calls for need for all stakeholders to work as a cohesive unit.  Business owners are further burdened by the need to minimize operational costs by investing in the right tools and technologies.




Every business depends on 3 paradigms:

(a)   Workforce Collaboration:  Process adherence, approvals, checks/balances and controls are essential when automating any business process.  Is the accounts receivable credit manager informed of a special credit facility extended to a deserving customer?  Is the underwriter in an insurance process able to capture all details of perceived risk in a repository?

Microsoft SharePoint acts as a catalyst for workforce collaboration.  Using SharePoint, stakeholders in a business process are brought together to achieve common organizational goals.

(b)   Document Management:  Most businesses need electronic versions of documents to be stored, managed and retrieved at the point of need.

Microsoft SharePoint offers a wide array of document management features which make document management easy.

(c)   Channel Management:  Closely related to internal workforce collaboration is channel management, where external stakeholders to the business play a critical role.  If the organizational intranet brings your employees together to collaborate, the extranet brings external stakeholders like channel partners together.

SharePoint is an excellent platform for bringing together the internet, extranet and the internet.
