“SharePoint for the WIN!”

We are primarily using the system for document management. By connecting to a Microsoft Office server, we are able to create and manage all documentation within SharePoint rather than having multiple versions existing on individual PCs. The fact that we can share news and utilize a central corporate calendar are cherries on top.

 – SharePoint review by Linda R (Procedure Control Manager)
--------------------------------

SharePoint is a revolutionary platform created by Microsoft used to enhance and simplify various operations of the workplace, including management and services. SharePoint is integrated with useful software, such as office 365. It is an intranet and content management platform used for document management and to manage employees.

SharePoint’s Limitations

Even though SharePoint can work as an excellent HR system on its own, there are still some limitations attached to it that requires attention.

Complex Set-Up

To configure SharePoint for HR, companies would have to hire specialized professionals. Modifications to the system would also require an expert; this can be an added burden, especially for small businesses.

High Cost

The total cost can become high for SharePoint; you’d have to buy the license, added fees of configuration experts, and pay for support and modifications to the HR system.

Generic

On its own, SharePoint isn’t tailored for a specific company or department needs. It can be used by any company and department of the company. This can be a problem as duties differ in various departments; it would require customization according to the department and the company’s needs. To do that would have to hire a professional again, which will add to the cost.

Adaption Issues

Hidden features can make user-adaption to SharePoint a bit difficult and time-consuming. Users would need to be trained to use the platform, which can be a problem for many small companies.

How to Overcome SharePoint Limitations?

Companies can overcome SharePoint’s limitations by integrating various SharePoint portals. Portals are designed according to the needs of specific companies and departments in mind. They can successfully address the short-comings of SharePoint and enhance its functionality. 

If you’re looking for an effective HR solution, using an HR portal will provide you with a cost-effective and user-friendly system. Automating business processes by using HR Portals can be beneficial for your company and allow you to maintain the consistency of your digital workplace. Your HR team can track requests and policies, manage employee information and employee onboarding, recruiting, etc.

HR portals efficiently bridge the gap between the HR department and the employees and save valuable time for both that can be used productively.

Enhanced Filing

Repetitive business processes are well-known for reducing the productivity of the employees. Empower your HR staff and make the filing process more manageable with an HR portal that is capable of document management and provides a vast storage option. Your HR staff can quickly locate documents by using the search option and save valuable time that they would’ve otherwise lost due to manual processing.

Personalized Experience

HR manager, HR staff, and the employees need different content according to their needs and job roles. The customization features of HR portals for SharePoint allows you to customize the platform according to the user’s needs so you can deliver relevant content.

Accessibility

SharePoint, on its own, is accessible from Computers, Smartphones, and Tablets. When you integrate an HR portal on your HR system, you’d be able to access the added feature from anywhere. This can be very useful if the employees work outdoor or in case the HR staff has to travel between branches, they can continue their work during the commute (as a passenger).

Ease of Use

SharePoint HR portal is easy to use, single sign-in to all Microsoft products saves the crucial time of the employees. The search options search for documents across the platform instead of a single site; this tool can save a tremendous amount of time for your HR staff.
