Just over a week ago we had a meeting in Ireland to discuss how we could help the staff at two hotels access their files and documents in a better and more efficient way. Now the project’s been agreed we’ll be back in just over a month to move their files off their central server and migrate them to Office 365’s SharePoint.
If you’re reading this wondering what SharePoint is, then let me explain… Currently, files and folders shared between your team and other departments are held on a central file server that is only accessible either when you’re at the hotel or if you’re using a VPN. There are newer and more modern ways of storing and accessing files by using a Microsoft product called SharePoint.
SharePoint is a cloud-based service that helps hotels and organisations share documents and collaborate with colleagues, partners, and suppliers. With SharePoint, you can access internal sites, files, documents, and other information from anywhere – at the hotel, the office, at home, or from a mobile device. You can also share a document with someone outside the hotel (if given the permissions to do so) and they can then update the document or folder inside a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
If you’d like to hear more than contact us to arrange a telephone call or meeting and we can show you the benefits.
