SharePoint, the hub of your organisation and beyond

Microsoft SharePoint Online OfficeLabsYou may know SharePoint simply as a content or information management system, but it is also far more than that. It is an intelligent, mobile intranet with the ability to share knowledge, easily search for information and allow collaboration across your entire business.

With the introduction of SharePoint Online and the Microsoft 365 suite, SharePoint has evolved beyond a place to store files in an essential hub, it is the backbone of many of the productivity tools you use today. You may not even realise that SharePoint underpins some of the tools you use daily, such as Microsoft Teams.

Integration and collaboration with the apps you already know

SharePoint Online is a browser based application which hooks into all of the Office applications you already use: Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneNote – all of these have their own web versions accessible directly in SharePoint. Your employees can collaborate in real time on the same documents thanks to SharePoint’s co-authoring functionality. And because SharePoint is browser-based, you can use it on any compatible device: a laptop, PC, mobile or tablet. Data is stored in the cloud, so is accessible from anywhere – the need to be in an office is a thing of the past! OfficeLabs can advise with SharePoint development training and support for any size of project. To find out more about how we help organisations, read our case studies →

If you’re still using legacy SharePoint on-premises and want to take full advantage of the benefits of the cloud-based SharePoint Online, OfficeLabs can help migrate your data securely. We build and design an intranet that gives you both the functionality you’re used to, combined with the security of Microsoft’s robust architecture.

Even if you are moving from a non-SharePoint environment, such as a network drive or Google Drive, migration into SharePoint is a painless process and the end result is an application that employees and management alike will be very happy to use.

Extensive and extendable

As mentioned, SharePoint isn’t just a communications platform. It can be extended to provide a far more feature-rich experience: OfficeLabs have built extensive intranets, case-logging systems, learning management platforms, and more. Using SPFx – the SharePoint Framework – it is possible to extend its functionality into client-side development, meaning that you can seamlessly link into open-source tools or other development services for the more technically minded members of your business.

Have a look at some of the examples that OfficeLabs have built using SharePoint – you’ll be surprised at its versatility!

Virtual Learning Platform (VLP) – SharePoint was utilised to host event information and delegate profiles, as well as allowing co-authoring and targeted content. Combined with other technology such as Teams and Yammer, the VLP solution was a huge success and showcased SharePoint’s power in bringing Microsoft’s productivity suite into a cohesive central hub.

Trip Approvals – an education client needed a way to track trips to formalise their booking process and record all of the details needed, alongside an approval process. A PowerApp was built which used a SharePoint list as its backbone for storing the trip details as well as the different stages of approval.

Document Management Training – OfficeLabs are experts at data management: if you’ve got a fragmented data structure in your organisation with files scattered across multiple drives, PCs and data sources, we can help de-duplicate, normalise and migrate your data into a structured SharePoint intranet which works for you and your team.

OfficeLabs provides SharePoint advice, development, migration, training and support for any business.
