The global coronavirus pandemic has made the transition to a remote workforce a necessity for many businesses.

This unexpected change in work arrangements is leaving some organizations unequipped with the technology they need for their employees to productively work from home. So the first step toward your remote workforce setup is to equip your team with the tools and technology they need.

One tool that will help employees adapt to a home workplace is SharePoint.

What Is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a cloud-based file storage and sharing solution from Microsoft which offers secure access to your company’s files and folders through the cloud from any location. So even when your workforce is spread out, your team can work collaboratively from anywhere in the world.

With SharePoint, your data is securely stored on the cloud and backed up safely, so you don’t have to worry that your data is unprotected on unsecured devices or servers once your employees are no longer working from one location. And in the event of a hardware error, all of your work will remain completely accessible to you and uncompromised.

SharePoint offers seamless collaboration for your whole office by gathering and storing all your applications and resources in one place.


SharePoint gives you, your colleagues, and your employees the ability to take the office with you wherever you are through remote file sharing and collaboration capabilities.

When you use SharePoint, multiple team members can work together on the same document, with all changes saved in real time and visible across devices and locations. Only users that have been granted access to your files will have permission to view or edit them, meaning there is no risk of file transfer mishaps or unauthorized parties gaining access.

SharePoint is available across a range of platforms and works with both Windows and Mac, as well as mobile devices.
