Key Features of SharePoint / MOSS
Increase Team Productivity
A SharePoint site eliminates logistical restrictions such as time and location
and provides team members a flexible, reliable, cost-effective way to increase
productivity. Workspace site creation is easy with the use of built-in templates
and flexible user management tools. 24/7 access and password protected user
access rights ensure that the team members have access to the right information
at a time that is convenient for them.
Build an Online Community
SharePoint allows you to create a central location where internal and external
team members can access and share information and participate in discussions
without the associated cost of building a custom site or using an expensive
online solution. A SharePoint site will allow team members to capture and share
ideas, information, communication, and documents and facilitate team
participation in surveys, discussions, and shared document collaboration. The
document collaboration features allow easy check in, check out, and document
Empower Team Members
SharePoint site users can quickly locate documents and communicate with key
contacts and project leaders. Interfacing with Microsoft Office applications,
users can read and edit site lists, events, documents, and task assignments.
They can also receive alerts notifying them when a document has been added or
edited. With Microsoft Office, team members can view SharePoint site event
calendars simultaneously with their personal calendars and create
meeting-specific workspaces to augment group appointments.
Improve Business Intelligence
SharePoint provides business intelligence (BI) capabilities to every employee,
so they can share, control, and reuse business information in order to make
better business decisions. The BI features of Office SharePoint Server 2007
provide Web and programmatic access to published Microsoft Office Excel
spreadsheets, programmatic reuse of critical line-of-business data, and easy
development of Web-based BI dashboards that can incorporate rich, data-bound key
performance indicators (KPIs), Web Parts, and published spreadsheets.
