Can SharePoint be used a document management system?
SharePoint can be used as a document management system (DMS). It offers a comprehensive set of features and capabilities for managing documents and files within your business by allowing users to create, store, organise, and collaborate on documents.
With SharePoint, you can create document libraries to store files, apply metadata and tags for easy categorisation and search, control access and permissions to ensure document security, implement versioning and check-in/check-out functionality for document control, and enable document collaboration through features like co-authoring, comments, and alerts.
Additionally, SharePoint integrates with other Microsoft Office tools, providing seamless integration and enhancing document management capabilities. It also offers robust search functionality, workflows, and automation options to streamline document-centric processes.
How to use SharePoint as a document management system
To get started, you will need a SharePoint site or subsite dedicated to document management. Within the site, you can set up document libraries for organising and storing files. Here you can upload existing documents and establish a folder structure or leverage metadata for classification. SharePoint allows you to control access and permissions at the document library level to ensure document security, assigning appropriate rights based on user roles. It also allows you to enable versioning to track document revisions and implement check-in/check-out functionality to prevent conflicts during editing.
By leveraging collaboration features like co-authoring, comments, and alerts you can facilitate teamwork in real time.
The benefits of using Sharepoint as a document management system
With a SharePoint document management system, you can collaborate with colleagues seamlessly, irrespective of your location. Work together on documents, pitches, and projects, enhancing productivity and efficiency.
Streamline document processing and approvals through workflow automation. This accelerates the sign-off process, ensuring faster turnaround times and improved productivity.
Compliance & Policies:
Maintain compliance by keeping legal and regulatory documents up-to-date. A SharePoint document management system provides alerts for upcoming reviews, ensuring adherence to compliance requirements and business policies.
Eliminate confusion and duplication of effort by enforcing version control. All users work from a single version of documents, promoting consistency of messaging and brand identity.
Say goodbye to the time-consuming task of searching through file folders. A document management system offers advanced search capabilities and metadata tagging functions, enabling quick and easy retrieval of relevant business content.
Storage At Scale:
SharePoint Document Management solutions often include generous storage capacity. With most Microsoft 365 business licensing, you receive 10GB of storage, accommodating the storage needs of most businesses without additional costs.
