About SharePoint Document Management Solutions
Benefits Of A Document Management System
A document management system is a software solution for storing, managing and tracking files.
SMEs will typically use a file management solution (such as that found in Windows) for storing their documents and files. But as organisations grow, file managers can soon become overly complex. Important documents get lost in nests of folders and are undiscoverable with the basic search functionality available.
There’s often no fixed architecture to a file manager either, meaning any user can move (or delete) files as they please. And sharing information outside of an organisation can become difficult, particularly if data is sensitive. This is where a SharePoint document management solution can be of benefit.
SharePoint Document Management Features
Microsoft SharePoint Online operates as a multi-functional software solution for document management and collaboration. It allows businesses to store files in a more intelligent and structured way, with access to documents based on role and requirement.
SharePoint also makes use of advanced search options to find documents. Alongside a powerful search bar, meta-tagging of documents allows users to cut through folders and filter for documents by type or association (e.g. all documents relating to a particular company, or all documents marked as contracts)View Our Work

Take SharePoint With You
Always Available, Everywhere
SharePoint Online is cloud-based, hosted from Microsoft’s advanced infrastructure. Hosting files in a SharePoint Document Management System means an organisation can collaborate on documents live in the cloud, supporting remote working practices and working on the go.
It also means individuals in that organisation can access any required templates, sales collateral, presentations, or images as they need them, and share them in and outside of the organisation securely with ease.
Document Control System
SharePoint’s features make it excellent as a document control system. It allows for files and documents to be tracked by access and changes. This is important not only for viewing any user changes but also for security: documents containing personal data that get lost are technically a GDPR breach.
As with other Microsoft products, SharePoint is intuitive to use and manage. Tasks such as uploading and sharing documents can be performed simply, while administrators can make changes and updates to your document management system with ease.
