Information Architecture & Taxonomy
Disorganized and "naked" content is not very useful. It makes it hard for users to find what they are looking for or know what they are looking at. The proper content structure and metadata is essential to making SharePoint work for you.
Much of today's digital information is very sensitive in nature, and proper care must be taken to ensure that users are only able to access what they authorized to see without creating a draconian nightmare that ruins productivity.
An infrastructure that has been around for a while may not be running as smoothly as it could. Review and remediation can improve performance and thereby improve employee productivity..
Set Up and Instaltion
Building an infrastructure from the ground up is the perfect time to do it right, so that it does not have to be readdressed later..
The easiest way to find what you're looking for is to search for it. A properly configured search setup with suggestions, refinements, and best bets is key to help users find what they are looking for quickly and keeping them productive. This goes hand in hand with Information Architecture & Taxonomy because proper metadata is essential for relevant search results.
When the latest version comes out, businesses can realize huge benefits through upgrading and taking advantage of new features.
Communicate in a consistent manner by having your document content generated from templates vs. relying on the workforce to pick the right template.- Template Driven
If you are using email to pass around files to get feedback and updates, you can easily lose information and/or start generating duplicate content. Having documents controlled and generated by SharePoint will allow a centralized controlled master copy of the document.- Duplication
You no longer have to dig through your email threads to find out who made a change to document content and who approved that change. You can have a full audit trail at your fingertips.- Accountability
Document content and automatically generated document content can be the lifeblood of your enterprise. The natural chaos that ensues from emailing documents around in an organization for input and approval can create significant inefficiencies. We have found that SharePoint Document Management Solutions can provide order to that chaos.
