COVID-19 has forced a lot of businesses to move online and migrating their employees to work remotely. According to a study done by S&P Global Market Intelligence, 67% of the businesses have adopted remote work policies during this period and may decide to practice at least a few of these policies in the long run or even permanently.
There are a lot of benefits of working remotely. Businesses save a lot of capital on renting huge office spaces and can build a diverse, more talented workforce as well. But it comes with its own set of challenges like ineffective communication and lack of cohesion amongst employees. Various tools such as SharePoint can be used to ease these difficulties and help businesses be productive.
SharePoint, a tool developed by Microsoft, is essentially a highly flexible document management workflow application and collaboration tool. It can be useful to manage everyday tasks within a business while working remotely. Around 80% of the Fortune 500 Companies use this tool because it can drastically improve the way a team works.
Constantly exchanging emails and having to wait for feedback for improvement is tedious and can be eliminated using SharePoint. It aids an easy delivery of information and data to increase the pace of working by streamlining access to this data. Thus, tools like this are the key to maximizing productivity in such unexpected situations.
Why use SharePoint while working remotely?
In a small office environment, it is easier to connect and discuss on-going projects and deliver feedback and responses towards them. The larger the number of employees, the more difficult it gets to manage different projects and simultaneously be on the same page, especially while working remotely. SharePoint is a platform where you can collaborate in an orderly manner within your organization. It puts an end to the hassle of difficult communications that is caused due to the distance of employees and employers from one another. It helps to maintain order and flow of work in an uncomplicated way.
