Why use SharePoint?
Document sharing and collaboration
SharePoint is a space to store and collaborate on documents and other content. You can make use of its powerful document management and list management capabilities to create workflows and automate tasks. Many users can work concurrently on a file, with version control and permissions to secure access.
You can create a task or item list, assign list items to people and track progress.
Your site can show project updates, have a discussion area, link to related documents and more including SharePoint 'apps' you can use. find out more on our SharePoint support site
Personal and sensitive data
Do not store any personal data or special category personal data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 2018), in a standard SharePoint site.
If you need to store sensitive data contact us to arrange a secure SharePoint site.

SharePoint Online is coming in 2021
In early 2021 we plan to fully launch SharePoint Online. At that point we'll be advising you to transition any active SharePoint sites into SharePoint Online. Support for moving your site will be available.
SharePoint Online is easier to use and integrates with Microsoft Teams for staff. SharePoint 2013 is no longer being developed by Microsoft which means it won't benefit from any new features.
