In this blog post, we’ll cover why integrating SharePoint with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Teams will benefit your organization by improving productivity through centralized communications, file sharing and file storage.
In any organization, increasing productivity is a crucial factor in driving the business forward. As companies adopt new and innovative IT tooling, it is important that they select tools that will work seamlessly with the ones already in use within the organization. By doing so, the amount of time spent switching between collaboration tools is minimized and any friction caused when sharing and organizing information is reduced. This ultimately manifests as both cost savings and a reduced administrative overhead in an IT department. In this blog post, we’ll cover why integrating SharePoint with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Teams will benefit your organization by improving productivity through centralized communications, file sharing and file storage.
As a standalone product, SharePoint is a platform that allows you to connect, share files, manage content, and stay informed from anywhere and on any device. SharePoint users, on the standalone product, can build customizable content such as intranet sites lists, forms, pages, and document libraries to share information across their organization. All these files are saved in a cloud, so they are secure and accessible. While these offerings are robust on their own, SharePoint’s existing features can be supplemented by integrating the application with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Teams, essentially serving as a file repository or document sharing hub.
With Dynamics 365, you are provided with CRM software that can help increase your business’s profitability by streamlining processes in your sales, marketing, and service divisions. A strong CRM solution such as Dynamics 365 can be crucial to developing, retaining, and storing all information regarding your customer relationships, thus reducing redundancy in your organization. Dynamics 365 provides value to any organization by offering a platform to review insightful data, analytics, live data tracking and reporting, task automation, and enhanced communication. Once integrated with SharePoint, however, the features of Dynamics 365 are enhanced with improved data management, file processing, and collaboration, improving overall productivity and effectiveness as you are essentially combining a file organization tool with a CRM system (business application).
Key features of SharePoint Integration with Dynamics 365 are:
In conclusion, Dynamics 365 is an excellent CRM tool that can help businesses scale and enhance the quality of the service they provide. The features it provides make it easier to leverage information to make decisions. Integrating SharePoint improves the data and file management features of Dynamics 365, proving to be a valuable addition to any organization.
Microsoft Teams is a collaboration and communication application that helps your team communicate and stay organized in a single interface. Within this application, you can schedule meetings by syncing your Outlook calendar, host calls, chat with other team members, and create channels where you can perform all the aforementioned features, in addition to sharing files.
This application is fantastic for a variety of reasons. All your information to complete a task will be in the same place. You can work in real-time and in the open with the document uploading feature, which eliminates the need to send out an extra email announcement with the file attached. You can also converse with your team right in your channel, eliminating the need to share links through Outlook.
SharePoint and Teams share similar organization structure in which team sites are organized by topic, project, organization, or some other focal point for a team of people. Thus, SharePoint integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Teams because specific teams and channels will often follow a similar structure to SharePoint Team and project sites.
Key features of SharePoint Integration with Microsoft Teams are:
In conclusion, Microsoft Teams is an excellent collaboration tool that can be strengthened by integrating SharePoint. Because Microsoft products are designed to integrate with their suite of products, you can easily combine different applications and platforms to improve communication and productivity throughout your organization. Integrating SharePoint with Teams and Dynamics 365 is easy and will benefit any organization with upgraded features.
