As a multifaceted tool, SharePoint can be implemented into virtually any organisation. It can be utilised anywhere from a basic Document Management solution or communications portal, right through to a sophisticated business process automation system.
SharePoint is available to install on your existing servers, or as a cloud solution hosted by Microsoft in Australia. We provide a 365 Accelerator package to fast-track an implementation for a fixed fee, to ensure rapid deployment and certainty over outcomes and costs.
A DMS provides a central repository for storing, tracking and monitoring documents. It encompasses the entire document lifecycle from creation or capture, to publication and distribution, through to archive or disposition. DMS’s typically overcome issues such as:

Benefits of Automation
Organisations today collect huge amounts of raw data from their business operations. With the advent of Big Data and the Internet of Things, an explosion of data volume presents real challenges. BI applications take this raw data and transform it to deliver relevant and useful information, via reports, dashboards, graphs and charts that decision makers can easily make sense of to analyse business trends. Interactive reports allow report users to see summarised data, and then to “drill-into” the detail, as and when required. KPI dashboards give the ability to see issues at a glance and provide mechanisms for performance management and employee reward systems.
Benefits of BI:
SharePoint helps people communicate and collaborate to work with others on tasks in pursuit of shared goals. Collaboration technologies can be used to drive innovation within an organisation.

Communities of practice enable the sharing of information, documents and thoughts around a particular topic with the ability to “follow” content and engage in conversations.
