Hello to the Modern Intranet

The Modern experience in SharePoint offers a really effective way of creating an intranet for your company.

Hello to the Modern Intranet

With lots of new web parts that are easy to set-up and manage, Modern SharePoint makes it straightforward when it comes to designing a site for sharing company news, events, processes, social feeds and documents.

The recently launched Breakwater IT intranet utilises all of SharePoint’s handy new features  – building a site that every member of our team can be a part of.

So what is SharePoint?

It is the ideal way to collaborate and manage content, knowledge and applications across your company.

Through SharePoint you can create an intranet with sites for every project, team and discussion.

All of the smart SharePoint Online features can be accessed with Office 365.

What else does SharePoint do?

  • Personal cloud storage
  • Securely share and collaborate on files
  • Organise and manage content in libraries and lists
  • Create Team sites
  • Automate business processes with alerts and workflows
