Benefits Of A SharePoint Intranet
Microsoft SharePoint is the leading solution for creating company intranets and communication sites. Utilised by over 200 million users worldwide, SharePoint supports both office-based and remote users.
An intranet can be thought of as an internal-facing website. It’s a central location for all information relating to an organisation’s operations – from useful template documents to training, to staff HR records and company policies.
They can also be used to share company culture and communicate values – the latest charity work or sustainability goals, for example. And they can also support remote collaboration on files and projects.
Many organisations will find they have access to SharePoint through existing Microsoft 365 licensing. This makes it cost-effective to develop a new intranet in SharePoint.

Smarter Internal Communications
Intranets are an effective tool for communicating internal information across a company and are a great way to a great way to keep all users engaged – particularly if the workforce is spread across a variety of locations
Setting up a SharePoint intranet (or a communication site as part of a wider SharePoint setup) can be the ideal way to share key organisational announcements, policies, and employee notices.
Organisations can communicate in a variety of formats (news pages, links, images and videos) to get their message across – more effective and longer-term than email or other messaging solutions.
SharePoint as an intranet can also become the home of workplace calendars, holiday booking forms and resource scheduling tool, providing a truly centralised location for your organisation’s operations.

Intranets For Document Sharing
A SharePoint intranet can also be configured for storing files and documents. By pooling resources within SharePoint, an organisation can reduce duplication of effort and standardise output, creating efficiency gains in the process.
As a document or file management solution, SharePoint can support collaborative working on documents, allowing users to collaborate on Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files simultaneously. This reduces time spent on projects and reduces issues of version control.
SharePoint also provides organisations with 1TB of free cloud storage, making it the ideal solution to replace file servers.Download White Paper

Microsoft 365 & SharePoint Integration
As a Microsoft solution, a SharePoint Online intranet can be configured to work seamlessly with Microsoft 365 applications such as Microsoft Teams or Dynamics 365 and your wider Microsoft tenant.
SharePoint makes live collaboration on Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents simple, with easy sharing and version control as well.
We also regularly develop Power Platform solutions alongside intranets as part of wider digital transformation projects. And a SharePoint intranet also makes the ideal location to host relevant Power Apps and Power BI reports that your organisation may rely upon.

SharePoint Intranet Services FAQ
How Do I Set Up A SharePoint Intranet?
Many organisations will have access to SharePoint through their Microsoft 365 licensing. While organisations can try and develop an intranet themselves, we often find that the relevant structure and controls are not implemented, leading to user abandonment. This is why we recommend working with a SharePoint intranet developer such as Akita.
How Much Does A SharePoint Intranet Cost?
Our SharePoint solutions start from as little as £600. SharePoint intranet pricing then depends on the setup, level of functionality, integrations and any wider development required. For a no obligation quote, please get in touch:Get A Quote
What Are The Different Types Of Intranet Sites That Can Be Created Using SharePoint?
Typically, an intranet can contain a team site (linked or unlinked), a communication site or a hub site. View more about the types of SharePoint site in our blog:View
Can SharePoint Intranet Be Customised For My Organisation?
Yes and its encouraged for improved use and user adoption. We can configure your intranet based on your company structure, locations or function (HR, Marketing etc). We can also fully brand SharePoint intranet solutions to include company colours, logos and much more.
How Do I Control Access And Security On A SharePoint Intranet?
Access to SharePoint intranet - and data within it - is protected first by password (and additional Microsoft MFA if you choose). We can then construct a user access matrix that restricts access based on role or requirement. We can also link to any existing Microsoft 365 security setup an organisation may have (such as Azure AD).
Can SharePoint Intranet Be Integrated With Other Microsoft 365 products?
Yes. SharePoint links indigenously to applications including Microsoft Teams, Dynamics 365, Power Platform applications as well as the Office 365 suite. Each integration can add a wide range of business enhancements – our consultants will be happy to explain more on a demo:Book A Demo
