Project management in SharePoint

Every company that manages projects on a regular basis needs to have SharePoint to manage its documents, risks, issues, tasks and track progress.

Projects

Fed by experiences in numerous projects, we have designed a combination of sites with content that is not included in your accounting or your planning software. In combination with the knowledge that is embedded in the websites of Project platform, we have created a whole new experience in the area of documents management on projects.

Auditing

Auditing

SharePoint ships with auditing capabilities out of the box, although they need to be configured and turned on at both the site collection and site level. Once they are configured at this level it’s then possible to configure at the list containing your project documents, tasks, issues, risks etc.. This way you can monitor the contracts such as who opened, moved, edited, deleted a document. Every change is added to the project information.

Access

Access

More often than not, projects need to be managed and acknowledged by internal users. These projects should be located on an area of the Intranet. However, quite often you may wish to make them visible to partners, contractors who are external to your organization. SharePoint can be configured in such a way that these users can also gain access to the policies, without compromising security.

Security

Security

Project information may only be viewed, edited and deleted by the correct groups of staff. This may change over the life-cycle of the contract. SharePoint allows documents, libraries, lists, sites to be secured by adding people to groups. These groups can be built from Active Directory groups.

Microsoft announced that SharePoint now generates revenue of over 2 BILLION dollars a year. If it were a company it would be in the top 10 of the world. Its used used in roughly 80% of the Fortune 500. It's number 1 and it's getting better! There's a good chance you already have it and can use it to start managing policies and procedures today.
